094: Is 6-Figure Blogging Legit? An Online Business Conversation with Paul Scrivens of Odd Noodle and Blog Simple Framework [Content PRO Series]

July 28, 2020

We are still in the midst of the Content Pro series which is why I am SO excited to welcome today’s guest to the show.

 

This is actually an unplanned interview and ended up being one of my favorites to date for a few reasons:

  1. Paul Scrivens aka Scrivs is my blogging coach. I joined his program when it was called Billionaire Blog Club, then Dare to Conquer, now Odd Noodle. And I’ve been a student of his as he's transitioned from focusing on making money blogging to building an online business using a blog as a tool.
  2. One of the reasons people love Odd Noodle and Blog Simple Framework so much is because of the tough love, the humor, and the continuous learning environment, all of which you get a taste of in this episode.
  3. Lastly, I’m excited because I got to talk to him more about a free, 10-day event that he’s producing, starting Saturday August 1, 2020. It’s called the Odd Noodle Business Odyssey and it's a FREE event where you basically get the information and insight you need to answer the question: Can I Start an Online Business?

Sign up for the Odd Noodle Odyssey here.

091: How to Turn Your Goals into Reality with Tee Forever [Business Basics Series]

091: How to Turn Your Goals into Reality with Tee Forever [Business Basics Series]

June 30, 2020

Theresa "Tee" Forever is a mom of 3 children under 4 years old! She started blogging 3 years ago because although she enjoyed being a mom, she constantly felt there was more she could be doing with her life. This blog grew into a solid community of people who were ready to take action on their goals which is why she launched my online business called How to Turn Your Goals Into Reality. 

She began to teach her students how to use a 90-day framework to set and achieve BIG lifestyle and business goals that are aligned with their purpose. After a few years of blogging, she decided it was time to enter the podcasting world because, let’s be honest, she'd always dreamed about being on the radio and a podcast is the next best thing! So now she hosts a podcast called How to Turn Your Goals into Reality where I challenge people to step out of mediocrity and live a passionate life without fear and excuses! The rest is history.

June 16, 2020

So you want to start a business, but aren’t sure whether you’re a sole proprietor or whether you need an LLC. And then there are C-corps, S-corps, nonprofits and more!

Attorneys Christine Rose and Reba J of 2 Eight Media are here to spread their business entity knowledge!

Christine Rose and Reba J are the hosts of Entrepreneur Bind and Grind, a podcast dedicated to educating small business owners on potential legal pitfalls and ways to generate income using legal leverage.  

They share over a decade of legal skills in corporate, tech, real estate and entertainment law and many more years of exploring entrepreneurship themselves.  During their first season, they broke down the contracts you need to have as a budding entrepreneur, how to keep your financial situation tight and even had an accountant give tax tips for the end of year wrap up. 

They did want me to tell you that Season 2 is all about intellectual property and how every single company creates IP and should protect it.

Both ladies count their Caribbean heritage as the reason for their hustle and one of the many things they bond over themselves. They pride themselves on being a reliable source to the underserved community of creatives, entrepreneurs, and small businesses alike.

In this episode, they talk to us about:

  • How to protect yourself and your assets
  • Why some people might not need an LLC
  • Rules for sole proprietorships, LLCs, corporations, and nonprofits
  • Where to find the most comprehensive resources on LLCs and other business entities
