The process of going from idea to start-up business to big enough for an IPO (initial public offering) is filled with adventures.
When starting up, you should look at what kind of entity are you looking to create. Many people choose between staying as a sole proprietor and incorporation. There are different options in incorporation, most commonly, creating an LLC, S-corporation and C-corporation. Entrepreneurs need to make a very important decision on what they expect for the work involved in the operation of a business and the paperwork involved.
The largest differences between being a sole proprietor, LLC (limited liability company), S-corporation, and C-corporation can be seen in the way they are taxed, liabilities incurred, and how they raise capital. By incorporating your company, you create separate entities between your personal property and your business’s assets. Incorporating your business may be a great idea especially if you have many assets to protect.
Larger businesses may be funded by venture capitalists, usually in amounts upwards of 1 million dollars. Smaller businesses, on the other hand, usually get funding from more personal connections such as friends, family and angel investors.
Last month, EVS, LLC launched a new “how-to” video series on their YouTube Channel, ThePetsHaveIt. The series includes seven total videos, with five specifically focused on educating consumers on the versatile uses of their flagship product, Pet Peeve Household Pet Stain & Stink Remover. Casey Dean Eberhart, Co-Founder of EVS, LLC, is the host and demonstrator for each of the videos. He stated, “There are three intentions behind the launch of our first video series. The first video is a simple ‘Thank You’ video to all of our consumers that have made a purchase of Pet Peeve. Then we have five where we wanted to demonstrate how to eliminate pet [and other] stains and odors from the consumer’s home, car, RV, office and more.” Mr. Eberhart continued, “The seventh video is aimed at helping Pet Bloggers monetize their blogs by partnering with our company.”
According to the marketing department at EVS, they have partnered with Bruce Waterman from XposureBiz in Los Angeles and the company plans to release another set of videos in early 2015. “Our company is excited about the opportunity to help EVS grow their new line of products,” said Mr. Waterman. “We find it extremely rewarding to work with a first class operation that is focused on delivering first class products to their consumers.” XposureBiz provides many various strategies and tools to assist businesses in gaining maximum exposure on the web and mobile devices.
The Odor Eliminator product, Pet Peeve Household Pet Stain & Stink Remover, is available on Amazon.com. Sales have spiked in the previous two months. Pet Peeve is a brand exclusive to EVS Brands based in Algona, Washington. EVS, LLC was founded in April 2014 and is based in Algona, Washington.
EVS Brands, a private label and e-commerce consulting entity, has launched a series of videos to educate consumers about removing stains and odors from their homes, RVs, boats and more. A specific video concentrating on EVS’ Pet Peeve pet stain and odor removal spray, found online at Amazon.com, is among those spearheading the series, and thoroughly covers all the details about the product including its professional industrial strength neutralizing power, seal of approval by leading vets and Ironclad Guarantee.
“The search for a pet odor and stain eliminator that actually works is over,” says an EVS Brands senior company spokesperson. “We do not test any of our products on any animals, and we’ve made the bottles heavy-duty in nature so they can actually be taken camping, on a boat or in an RV and won’t break open. But best of all, we’ve made the product extremely easy to use – just walk over to the stain, follow the directions on the bottle and it will disappear like it never even happened; the special bio-enzymes do their thing almost instantaneously.”
Pet Peeve is the brainchild of the son of a vet who, while growing up around a clinic, was always asked how the clinic smelled so neutral given the fact that there were over 100 dogs and cats that came through the doors daily. The product used was only for vets and groomers, and this provided inspiration for the creation of Pet Peeve.
According to EVS Brands representatives, Pet Peeve leaves carpet, furniture and rooms smelling like a “fresh load of linen laundry” and can be used for stains, odors and accidents caused by dogs, cats, hamsters, gerbils and mice. Further, EVS offers its Ironclad Guarantee, allowing buyers to ask for a full refund if Pet Peeve does not meet their expectations.
The pet deodorizer product, Pet Peeve Household Pet Stain & Stink Remover, is available on Amazon.com. Pet Peeve is a brand exclusive to EVS Brands. EVS, LLC was founded in April 2014 and is based in Algona, Washington.
How to realize your true profession as being a NetWORKer (Article) (Video)
I have to be very transparent here. When I first began in my Nerium business, I was under the conclusion that I was in the skin care business with Nerium International. This company has only been in business for 3 years (and already it has earned a spot on the Direct Sales Network list in the top 60 businesses in the world!). I got into the rhythm of the company, which meant I attended online meetings, continuing company education, conference calls and I followed the system. Imagine how confused I was when the leaders of this company, the people who share their knowledge, direct us on how to build our business, kept saying that they’ve been in the business for 16, 25, 30 years. I wondered, ‘how can that be?’. After all, as I mentioned, Nerium is only 3 years old!
Pulling back the curtain for you, it finally dawned on me that the business I am truly in is the NETWORKING business and Nerium, the fastest growing company in direct sales history, is the vehicle. Once I was able to grasp that concept, my focus got clearer.
So what does that mean, ‘my focus got clearer’? I have a new approach to sharing what I do. I present myself as a business person, because business is my business. There seems to be a whole different persona with that vision, too. No longer am I trying to put some skin care in someone’s bathroom—I’m sharing a business opportunity with them—which just happens to be the best, easiest and most affordable skin care that has ever crossed my path. And, as it happens, this business opportunity has residual income. Did you know that many direct sales companies allow you to put your business in your will to pass down to your children as part of your legacy? Nerium is one of those companies. Winner!!
As you go through the process to decide to have a stream of income from a direct sales company, keep in mind that your profession is that of a networker Choose the vehicle to be a professional carefully.

Thelma asks “Are You Doing More Harm than Good with Liquid Drain Cleaners”?
Caustic drain openers like Liquid Plumber and Drano are intensely strong and dangerous household chemicals made to clear drain and pipe clogs. We’ve all probably used them at one time or another, and we have probably asked ourselves at some point about their safety and about whether they might damage drains and sewer pipes.
There are a few things to keep in mind when using liquid drain cleaners:
1. Caustic drain openers are OK for minor clogs, but they should not be used for major clogs. They can get trapped in your pipes and cause them serious damage. Remember, these are dangerous chemicals.
2. There is also the danger of trapped drain openers mixing with other chemicals. There have been reported cases where a chemical eruption occurred due to mixing. This can cause severe chemical burns and blindness. If you do not know for sure what other chemicals might be present in the pipe, you should probably not try fixing the problem chemically. If you can’t snake the drain yourself, call the professionals at THE DRAIN CO.
3. Repeated use of drain openers simply means you have a more serious, systemic problem with your sewer lines. It is definitely not advisable to keep pouring them (or your money) down the drain. It’s not cost-effective and it’s a potential health threat.
4. Drano and drain-off. It’s long been affirmed that these chemicals run off into groundwater and can potentially find themselves back in the potable (drinkable) water supply. So again, if it’s a minor clog, it’s probably OK to use it in a pinch. However, if you are concerned with our environment, you might want to stick to methods like hot water, Baking soda and vinegar and hand-snaking first. Again, if those fail to work, give us a call and we’ll come out and evaluate your situation.
5. Keep in mind potential problems you may not see. There has been at least a few reported cases like the following: A gentleman pours one of the popular drain cleaners into the drain, two bottles in fact! Well, the drain clog cleared out. As time went on he noticed that his floor began buckling. As you might have guessed, the massive amounts of drain opener he used ate through the pipes and began doing physical damage to the structure of his home, costing him thousands of dollars in repair. There was extensive water damage under the sink and floors. Suffice it to say, this gentleman had to replace the sewer pipes and also had to repair the floor.
