All of the business owners, entrepreneurs, girl bosses, startups, boutiques, course creators, freelancers, and gig workers with LLCs - this episode is for you.
Treat 👏🏽 your 👏🏽 business 👏🏽 like 👏🏽 a 👏🏽 business.
Too many entrepreneurs form businesses without fully understanding the implications of selecting an LLC.
You chose an LLC because you saw somebody else do it but have you considered the tax impact of that? What about if you want to sell and be acquired later?
Did you know that you can STILL be sued even if you have an LLC?
Listen to this episode for how to check if you can be sued and what to do about it.
Key takeaways from this episode:
1. Even if you have an LLC, you can STILL be sued
2. Be careful about who you take financial advice from
3. Operate your business like a business
It’s cool to be poppin’ on social media. Make sure your business is poppin’ in real life too.
The WERKin' Mommas Podcast
Hey y'all. Welcome to another episode of The WERKin' Mommas podcast. I'm Nikki Winston and so excited and glad to have you tuning in and rockin' with me today.
I'm here to talk about a PLETHORA of things - I am a Certified Public Accountant, a CPA exam instructor & coach, a writer, podcaster and owner of The Winston CPA Group. I also like to give career advice and share my experiences as a black woman/disruptive millennial working in corporate America while running my own businesses.
One of the things about my podcast is that it's very cathartic and therapeutic for me. So I don't edit my podcast; I want the organic emotion, the feeling, the moment to live through the episodes and I don't want to edit out something because I sip my water or clear my throat or one of my kids barges into my studio while I'm recording.
I'm excited to jump into today's episode. If you're tuning in for the first time, welcome, thank you for being here. If you're a regular listener: hey, hello, welcome back! Let you network know you're listening to this episode by using the hashtag #WERKinMommas also feel free to tag me @NikkWinstonCPA.

Ditch the "running on fumes" mentality. We're changing the definition of a working mom from overwhelmed and underappreciated to being celebrated and unapologetic for wanting it all - kids, a career, business owner, stay-at-home mom and whatever else she chooses!
We want to relieve Moms of errands & tasks that can be delegated so they can spend more time doing things they love.
