Are you creating content as a hobby or have you just not broken the monetization requirements yet? Or maybe you have but you haven’t focused yourself to make a business of your content creation efforts? When is it time to turn your passion into a business; potentially passion into profits? If you are like me, you have probably spent a lot of money on subscriptions like TubeBuddy, VidIQ, Epidemic Sound, perhaps your streaming software, Restream, etc, production tools like microphones, cameras, lights.

How do you at least make back the money you have invested in your efforts? James Hicks of Hicks New Media, https://www.youtube.com/@JamesHicks will be our guest teaching us the Basics of forming an LLC (granted each states’ laws are different), Merchandising, and Affiliate Marketing and his experiences.
