    #2033 Answering a major question for first-time founders

    I have to be honest, I was very skeptical as I went through the site today’s guest created. But I I was impressed with it I thought, “I should have come out with this idea!”
    It’s so simple, so brilliant, So elegant. My guest, Bobby Peddi, realized that one of the big questions that many people have when they’re starting a business is: how should Ieven structure my business? Do I even need an LLC? Do I need to incorporate? Should it just be a partnership?
    He answered those questions as simply as he could with HowtoStartanLLC.com. That led to Truic, The Really Useful Information Company.
    I want to find out how he did it.

    Nagabhushanam “Bobby” Peddi is Founder and CEO of Truic which offers free tools and guides to start a business, including How to Start an LLC.

LOVE IT!!!

Andrew is real and honest. He brings on guests that are really insightful and give great advice on how to run a business. This is a must listen!

SO GOOD!!!

Mixergy is one fo those podcasts that reminds you why you started your biz and that there is an entire community of entrepreneurs that exists who have been where you've been and understand the biz owner struggle. Its not only informative but fun to be able to listen to awesome stories and relate to other people's entrepreneurial challenges and successes!

Loveapic ,

A bit unprofessionally done

It’s an really informative show, any one who’s a inspiring or current entrepreneur should definitely listen . I do however find myself having anxiety at times when listening because Andrew has a nasty habit of cutting off or talking over the guest it’s like the conversation doesn’t flow well it will be getting very good and then Andrew will cut over the person, after asking them a question. Then you never hear their answer , just something Andrew wanted to say about himself . Or worst he leads into a sponsored ad. Ugh! It drives me nuts!!!! I totally understand controlling the conversation So the interview isn’t going over however be respectful about it . Let them answer, and don’t do it do you can talk about yourself. We’d like to hear their answers and their information and how they did it. Thanks
