Let me ask you a question that you probably want to be sitting down for: do you have a hobby, side hustle, or a business?
Unsure? You’re not alone!
In reality, building a business often happens in stages, so you don’t have to stress too much about which stage you’re in right now, as long as you’re striving towards your goals! But no matter if you are a part-time, full-time, or soon-to-be full-time business owner, one thing is sure: you should be treating your business like a business!
I invited Braden Drake, a CA-licensed attorney and tax professional, to sit down in the studio to break down what it means to have a part-time versus full-time business. He is also going to demystify a lot of complicated (but necessary) topics such as what you actually need to set up your business legally, how to figure out what your tax implications are, and the truth about bookkeeping.
