You'll learn about how to structure your new business and keep records, create backup plans, and steer clear of scams. You'll also:
* Find out whether you need investment capital and learn what your new time commitments will be
* Learn to create a business plan and patch any holes in it before you get started
* Discover how to incorporate a vibrant side hustle into your already busy life
