Moving Your Business from a Hobby (that COSTS You Money) to a True Business That Makes You a PROFIT

Guest Expert–Lisa Smith

So many people these days are going into business with the intention to make money (supplemental income or sole-income) doing what they love, especially "conscious entrepreneurs" who are trying to serve others. 

Yet most don't have a business background or training. They have an employee mindset or service-provider mindset, and haven't shifted into a business-owner mindset. Failing to know how to do so–and when–can doom your business, keeping you from turning it from a hobby into a business, or abandoning it all together.

My guest interviewer today is Sean K Michael. Sean is your YouTube and video marketing expert. He works with entrepreneurs and small business owners to help them use the power of video to drive more leads and profits to their business! You can find out more about Sean at www.velocityvideosonline.com

In these 30 minutes, you'll learn:

1. How to distinguish between a hobby and a business

2. The successful Business Owner Mindset

3. The many hats you must wear at first, and know when and how to switch
