How to Pay Yourself in a Single Member LLC
 
06:51
In today's video, I share with you the proper method to pay yourself if you own a Single Member LLC. Single Member LLC's are one of the most powerful and flexible legal entities that most online entrepreneurs use to protect not only their business, but also their personal assets. However, if you don't set up the LLC properly, it won't provide you any protection at all. Today we talk about how to pay yourself if you have set up a Single Member LLC. This will be especially helpful for you solopreneurs out there who are building businesses on the side. To schedule a phone conference: http://clarity.fm/jameshart I've written a more in depth blog post on this issue at my website: http://www.hawthornlaw.net/how-to-pay-yourself-in-a-single-member-llc/ I have also prepared a business building legal checklist that you can download at the following link: https://www.hawthornlaw.net/cheatsheet For more information, you can check me out at: http://www.hawthornlaw.net Or find me on Social at: Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/hawthornlg Snapchat: @jimhart518 Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/hawthornlaw Or join our free online community at: http://www.hawthornlaw.net/facebook

How does a single member LLC differ from a C-Corp?
 
07:11
Awhile back I received a comment on another video asking the difference between an LLC and a C-Corp. Basically, they are two entirely different animals. Different benefits, different drawbacks, different tax situations, etc. C-Corporations are meant for large companies or foreigners who live outside the United States. With the recent changes to the tax laws, you may be tempted to use a c-corp - but check with your accountant to make sure this is a smart idea. #LLC #C-Corp #Onlinebusiness
