[Listen and Profit Now™]

Do you own a business or a job? Perhaps, all you really own is an expensive hobby.

David C. Barnett, an expert on business valuations and how to buy or sell small businesses, meets with many small business owners who are disappointed to learn that their companies have zero market value without them.

To own a genuine business, David tells host and reputation coach Dean Rotbart, you must have systems, procedures, and processes in place that aren’t reliant on any single individual.

Startup Attorney Steven Buchwald Holds Court

[Listen and Profit Now™]

Our guest this week, Steven Buchwald, founding partner of Manhattan-based Buchwald & Associates, specializes in helping business startups – and those companies seeking capital infusions – to navigate the legal, regulatory, and operational mine fields that await.

Steven is especially experienced in providing valuable legal counsel to tech startups, advising them on the most appropriate legal structure for their companies; non-disclosure agreements and other tools to protect their intellectual property; employee retention and employee equity agreements; and the best ways to prepare for outside investors – be they venture capitalists, crowdfunders, or your retired Uncle Phil. 

Steven defines a startup – his specialty – more broadly than most people. Whether you’re just now putting together a business plan or if you’ve been in business for a decade, when you’re moving in a fresh direction – especially one that entails third-party investors – in Steven’s eyes you’re a startup.

On this week’s episode, Steven and host Dean Rotbart will discuss a range of legal issues that face business startups and Steven will cast a spotlight on common mistakes you’ll want to avoid.
