Business License Vs. LLC – Comparing The Differences

You’re excited about launching a new business. Congrats! But you have no idea if you need a business license or to register an LLC. Maybe you need both? Even then, it’s not clear where you should start. This post uncovers everything you need to know about business license vs. LLC and how to navigate these crucial requirements.

The Top Rated Formation Services to Start Your LLC

Forming an LLC is an excellent option if you want personal liability protection and flexible tax filing. We’ve already narrowed down the best LLC formation services for your convenience:

You can read our full reviews of each LLC formation service here.

What is a Business License?

A business license is a government-issued document that allows a business to operate within a specific jurisdiction. The business license may be issued at the local, state, or federal level. So, the appropriate business license depends on the industry you operate in.

Almost all businesses require one or more licenses to operate legally. For example, you’ll need at least a basic license to start a home-based business. Similarly, you’ll need a professional license to offer financial advice, hairstyling, or daycare services.

In short, a business license proves that you are legally allowed to conduct specific business or provide particular services within a certain jurisdiction. The government regulates people who can provide goods or services. So, your business license is like a contract with the government that allows you to run your business in compliance with local, state, or federal guidelines.

What is an LLC?

Unlike a business license, a limited liability company (LLC) isn’t a permit. Instead, it is a type of legally recognized business entity. Where a business license allows you to operate legally, the LLC designation describes the type of business structure you have.

The Secret Power of Questions

The Secret Power of Questions

The power of questions is their ability to invite response. The danger is it might be damaging.

‘Yes’ or ‘no’ questions shackle people with assumptions and judgments.

  1. Don’t you agree?
  2. Is that the only solution?
  3. Could you think of another option?  

The power of questions is their ability to invite response. Image of red poppies. The power of questions is their ability to invite response. Image of red poppies.

The secret power of questions:

#1. Questions make statements.

“Are you crazy?” really means, “You’re crazy.”

“Have you thought about this?” really means, “You need to think about this.”

#2. Questions strengthen connections.

What were some tipping points in your life?

Who saw something in you that you didn’t see in yourself? What did they see?

#3. Questions require thinking.

  1. How would you solve this situation?
  2. What are some options to move the agenda forward?
  3. What else might we try?

#4. Questions demonstrate respect.

How did you get good at this?

What factors played a role in this great decision?

#5. Questions increase pain.

“How is your relationship with the boss?” increases pain when relationships are pained.

“How did your project go?” is uncomfortable when things went wrong.

“What do you think we should do?” creates stress when options are unclear.

Hurt comes before healing. Image of a broken brick with bandages.Hurt comes before healing. Image of a broken brick with bandages.

Some pain is useful.

Sorrow comes before solution.

Hurt comes before healing.

Questions poke pain-points like statements can’t.

You can’t find solutions when avoiding pain but discomfort is not the problem.

Pain distracts people from real issues.

Statement: “You screwed up,” invites excuse making. Question: “What would you like to do to fix this?” assigns responsibility.

Statement: “You made a mistake,” invites defensiveness. “If you did this again, what would you do differently?” invites exploration.

Note: Direct confrontation may be appropriate when people are belligerent. Direct statements may create clarity.

Questions expose real issues.

  1. What assumptions caused this situation?
  2. How did we get here?

When you know the heart of the matter, don’t let hot emotion distract you. Increase useful discomfort with benevolent questions.

How might leaders leverage the power of questions?

What do leaders do to sabotage the positive power of questions?

This Personality Type Has The Happiest Life

How time perspective is key to people’s happiness.

People who are extraverts typically have the happiest lives, research finds.

One reason is that extraverts are likely to remember their past more positively.

Extraverts tend to be energetic and chatty, seeing the world through rose-tinted glasses.

It turns out that introverts are also happier if they can look back on more positive memories.

Neurotic people, though, have a tendency to focus on negative events in their past.

Naturally, this makes them feel less happy in general.

Those with neurotic tendencies can counter this by reframing negative memories and making an effort to focus on positive events.

Dr Ryan Howell, the study’s first author, explained:

“We found that highly extraverted people are happier with their lives because they tend to hold a positive, nostalgic view of the past and are less likely to have negative thoughts and regrets.

People high on the neurotic scale essentially have the exact opposite view of the past and are less happy as a result.”

The study asked people about their satisfaction with life, personality and time perspective.

Time perspective refers to whether a person orients themselves towards the past, present or future.

The results showed that people who were happiest tended to remember the positive aspects of the past and live in the moment.

Dr Howell said:

“We found that personality traits influence how people look at the past, present and future and it is these different perspectives on time which drive a person’s happiness.

This is good news because although it may be difficult to change your personality, you may be able to alter your view of time and boost your happiness, for example by savoring happy memories or reframing painful past experiences in a positive light.”

The study was published in the journal Personality and Individual Differences (Zhang & Howell, 2011).

Million-Dollar Funnels Aren’t Made With Ads

Having a million-dollar marketing funnel is nothing to scoff at. 

It’s a huge accomplishment that deserves its’ kudos. There’s a lot of automation, dedication, and ideation that goes into making something like that happen.

It’s the type of benchmark that says, “Hey, I was a serious business owner at 6-figures. But now? I turned my serious business into an EMPIRE.”

So listen, if you already have one: congrats, I commend you for the hard work. Feel free to kick back, put your feet up, and hang out.

For anyone looking to scale their funnel to that million-dollar benchmark, you’ll want to take a couple of notes.

But before I get into that, let’s talk about me real quick—just to make sure you know I’m not some random schlub pretending to know a thing or two about marketing.

My name’s Yogev Almog, I’m a marketing consultant and copywriting strategist for 6, 7, and 8-figure brands. 

I’ve written for and consulted on funnels ranging from fitness, coaching, eCommerce, business automation, CPG, financial institutions, telehealth services, done-for-you businesses, chiropractors—name an industry and I’ve likely written something or at the very least given some advice on it. 

And just to put the cherry on top, my work has been a direct contribution to a handful of million dollar funnels. 

So, now that you know a little about me and my credibility, I feel pretty comfortable saying this next part:

If your end goal is simply “The Million-Dollar Funnel,” everything I’m about to say is probably going to upset you. 

In fact, it definitely will. And you know who I’m going to upset the most today? Ad experts. 

Dearest ad expert friends of mine: I love you, truly, I do. I promise this isn’t a shot at you.

The thing is, entrepreneurs are especially obsessed with social media ads right now.

There’s this instant gratification that comes with an ad campaign because you can pretty easily track where a sale is coming from.

“Person sees ad. Person clicks on ad. Person spends time on site. Person buys.”

You can see how it might get addicting to watch as your phone blows up with sales confirmations but what people tend to be super quiet about is: 

  1. The amount of ad budget you need to kickstart a campaign
  2. All the creative you constantly need to test (Both the visual and written) 
  3. Following community guidelines to make sure your account doesn’t get shut down for saying the wrong thing
  4. The inevitable upward trend of ad spend due to market saturation

Talking about this often makes me think of a conversation I had with a client. 

On a call, she mentioned a competitor of…

Employee Onboarding Checklist

Employee onboarding is far more than filling out payroll paperwork for HR and getting a company tour from your boss. For new hires and businesses alike, it can be an exciting time– but it can also be a lot to take in all at once.

The employee onboarding process can either be a very smooth process or a very bumpy one. Especially for newer organizations or companies with less hiring experience, a lack of structure for employees means fewer systems in place to help with the transition.

The average employer spends 24 days and $4,000 getting a new employee up to speed, so even a slight delay could mean pushing things back into the next month.

Of course, there is a way to avoid this: an employee onboarding checklist. This will help ensure that your business gets the most out of its new hires by having a system in place for employees to follow.

To make things easier in your onboarding process, here are five steps for an effective employee onboarding checklist:

1. The Pre-Onboarding Process

The pre-onboarding process is an important step in getting new employees acclimated to their position and company culture. This is when the employer should collect all the necessary paperwork and send out any onboarding materials.

Gathering this information in advance will save time on the employee’s first day and help to make a smooth transition into the job.

If this is an in-person role, the employer may also want to schedule a brief meeting or call with the new hire before their first day. This is an opportunity to introduce them to the team, answer any questions they may have, and go over the company’s expectations.

The new hire may even come into the office to gather materials or meet…

Leaders who are successful at creating positive communications, collaborations, cultures, and results for their teams and organizations demonstrate the traits of what I call “Learner Leadership.”

5 Tips for Becoming a Better Learner Leader:

#1. Operate from a Learner (learning) rather than a Judger (judgmental) mindset.

The Learner mindset is open-minded, accepting, and win-win.

The Judger mindset is close-minded, critical, and win-lose.

We all have both mindsets and both are normal. The Choice Map illustrates our mindsets and how we choose them moment by moment.  To download your personal copy of the Choice Map, click here and watch the short explainer video to learn more.  

#2. Ask yourself and others Learner questions.

Learner questions are genuinely curious and open-minded.

From the Learner mindset, leaders ask expansive questions such as, “What works?” What are others thinking, feeling, and wanting?” “What can we learn from this mistake?” and “What’s possible?”

#3. Avoid, as much as possible, asking yourself and others Judger questions.

From the Judger mindset, leaders ask constricting, critical, and negative questions such as, “Whose fault is it?” What’s wrong with those people?” and “How can I avoid looking like I don’t know the right answers?”

#4. Listen with “Learner ears” rather than “Judger ears.”

This means that leaders listen with Learner questions such as, “What valuable perspective could John share?” “What’s working about X?” and “How can I best support Jane’s success?”

It also means avoiding listening with Judger questions such as, “What dumb thing will John say this time?” “Why does Jane always get it wrong?” and “How can I avoid looking bad?”

#5. Create Learner teams and meetings

Learner teams and meetings are collaborative, strategic, and productive. Everyone’s voices and questions count and team members work together to stay on the Learner path.

What questions will you ask to shift your mindset from a Judger to a Learner?
