Episode 23: The Easiest Way to Put Money Back in Your Pocket as an Entrepreneur
Taxes!! It’s not the sexiest subject, but that’s exactly why we wanted to cover it on today’s podcast!

In today’s episode we cover basic entity structuring, a few tax strategies, and why you absolutely must hire someone to look at your numbers! Also, we’re offering a special deal for our listeners on a custom tax plan (through Easier Accounting). This can be accessed at easieraccounting.com/RBO --- Please note, we are not accountants.

Episode 32: How We Approach Content Creation
First thing, we’re humbled by all the attention our podcast and social media have received since we started last year. We didn’t expect 60,000+ followers to hop on in such a short time, and it means a lot that y’all seem to really vibe with what we’re doing. That stated, we think it’s now safe to say we’re on to something, and we’d like to share what’s helped us with anyone interested in becoming a content creator. In this episode, we discuss our experience trying to make social media work for our businesses and share tips based on what has and hasn’t performed.

Episode 20: Screw Your Safety Net
Despite what you might assume, building a “safety cushion” of 5-10K just to have in case “something bad happens” is counterproductive for anyone looking to get into business. This is especially true if an unwillingness to part with this lump sum prevents you from taking advantage of a golden opportunity. You’re much more likely to succeed as an entrepreneur if you can light a fire under your ass, and the comfort of a safety net isn’t doing you any favors in that regard. As always, we don’t advocate being reckless with your money, but this episode covers in detail why we’re against clinging to a petty emergency fund. Other topics include proper money mindset and investment red flags. Connect with us: Instagram Facebook Easier Accounting
