Browsing the forum I see many headless chickens jumping from one business to another. Jumping into "niches" they have no knowledge of and/or running many niche business at the same time. That does seem to fit into the business module of most here.
So how would you define a real business instead of making some money on the side? To try and help some of these lost souls?
Maybe I am wrong but here are some of my tips.
Real business more than like;ly have employees. 1 man business..you are a sole trader. not set in stone, technically you could have a one person business i guess.
Proper legal set up. LLC or other. Bank accounts, tax accounts, credit lines etc.
A proper business requires 100% effort. You can't be running several real business at one time I.M.H.O.
I am not going to say real businesses have offices, profits or are not relying on G. rankings etc. That doesn't fit my definition.
Can you add?
