Productive or Busy. Which One Are You?

If you are looking for more results in your business there is a real important piece of self-evaluation that must be considered in order to get better results.

That is, asking and reflecting upon this question; are you productive or just busy? Perhaps your goal for better results from your business may mean more income, perhaps it is the same amount of income with more time off, more time with your family.

Increase your productivity and your profits!

Increase your productivity and your profits!

Most entrepreneurs are simply busy, with no clear cut goals and they are hoping the busy activity will somehow lead to results. I know, because I have been there! I used to pride myself in working 14-16 hours days, 6 days a week at least, doing a lot of stuff, mostly just being busy. I know I was jumping from one priority to the next, creating new projects while 10 others were left unfinished.

Did I produce results in my business, yes most certainty but it was not a very effective approach. The mere fact that I worked 14-16 hour days was not what determined that I was busy, there are many, many successful entrepreneurs who work 14-16 hour days and are very productive. Tony Robbins is one of them.

Perhaps your goal is not to be like Tony Robbins, but you may have to agree, he has succeeded in his business. Dan Kennedy is another entrepreneur who is like productivity on steroids. When he works, he works, no interruptions!
First, let’s address some characteristics of someone who is busy and not getting any results in their business. You can calibrate to see if you fall more into this category (hopefully not) vs. the productive category.

  • Reactive day. No scheduled calls or appointments
  • Take calls all day. Anyone can call you at any time and you answer the phone because you have no scheduled appointments. You may be unprepared for that call, but you take it, anyone.
  • Randomly on Facebook and the internet throughout the day. No scheduled time.
  • Checking emails first thing in the morning and 10 times per day and will stop in the middle of a project to answer an email.
  • Not delegating any work to a virtual assistant or staff.
  • Not prioritizing your day.
  • No clear deadlines of goals.
  • No stopping time on calls.
  • Not taking the time after a call or meeting to make notes, the next step or some type of summary.
  • Always being available, including having an open door policy all day long where anyone can interrupt you at any time.
  • Not valuing your time.
  • Jumping from one marketing concept to the next without any consistency.
  • Not working on the business to improve the systems and process. Only focused on what to sell or offer next.
  • Never take any time to organize.
  • No monthly budget.
  • Write long email answers.
  • Low energy.
  • Not in shape.

How did you do? Did you find a few items that you might be guilty of? Even as I write them out, there are some, I need to improve with, (not having a set time daily to answer email)
Now, let’s shift gears to the list of characteristics of some of the most successful entrepreneurs.

  • Plan their day and work their plan.
  • All meetings and business calls are scheduled.
  • There is stopping time for each call that is clearly defined ahead of time.
  • Avoid interruptions like the plague. Only a scheduled open door policy at specific times during the day.
  • Schedule time per day or per week to answer emails.
  • Schedule time to post on blogs, Facebook…
  • If there is a 20-minute break they are working on the next project, not playing Angry Birds on their iPhone.
  • Focus on one task at a time (although they may be working on 20 projects and may be at step 2 on one project, step 6 on another, they crank through work, projects, and can do multiple things at one time). This does not mean multitasking, that really is the ability not to focus at the moment and jump all around.
  • Highly value their time, difficult to get a hold of, must pay for time. Can you just call up a major CEO and expect to get him on the phone?
  • Prioritize every hour of every day when working.
  • Delegate, hold accountable and follow up.
  • There is an intensity to keep score and win.
  • Knowing your business and personal financial numbers.
  • Rarely get overwhelmed because they are organized, although many times it looks like organized chaos.
  • They have a lot of energy and can out produce others. They rarely complain about being tired, even though they were up earlier and stayed up later than most.
  • They exercise and are in shape.
  • They take real time off.
  • They quickly get to the point and quickly end a meeting if not appropriate.
  • They reply with a short email.

How did you do? Being highly productive is no easy task. If you want more financial success to follow someone around for 3-4 days who are very successful and take notes on what they do and calibrate to your most recent business day. What do you notice that is different? This can be tough because you have to self evaluate your own time.
We all would like to justify how productive we are and why the reason we are not getting results is something out of our control, like the economy (it is a tough economy yet there is an opportunity also). It is hard to compare to results many of us got back in 2004-2007 when the market was riding high and credit was freely available to most. Those days are over, so now it is time to really become more productive, and take massive action and develop a laser focus to produce results. Unfortunately, sequential steps, 1, 2, 3 4…will not usually work.

Successful people are doing 10 projects at the same time, each on a different step and have much higher expectations of the amount of work they crank out in an hour, day…

I was at a school play and there was an hour between performances. I was 10 minutes from my office, which was a 20 minute round trip. I drove back to the office, followed up with 5-7 emails, returned two phone calls, delegated 3-4 new steps in projects to the staff and drove back in time for the next performance. I did not play “angry birds” to just pass the time. That is a typical pattern with the most successful entrepreneurs.
Take the time to pick two or three categories that you will commit to today to improve for you to become more productive in your business and notice the results on a daily basis. Look for the small improvements and within 30 days to 60 days, you will be very pleased with your results!

Simple vs. Complex Solutions

What will help take your business to the next level? Perhaps the next level isn’t even a goal, perhaps getting started with revenue is your goal. In this economy I see so many small business owners looking for “magic dust” to solve their revenue or business challenges. This is, of course, fantasy land.
One school of thought focuses on the brutal harsh reality that being successful requires complex solutions.
You want to hold your own seminar because you were at one recently and there were 150 people in the room and you saw all the sales in the back of the room and you thought, “Wow, at least 50 people invested in programs to improve their business and the average price was $2K, which means that event generated over $100K in sales plus ticket sales! That was simple, I can do that.”
What no one tells you is that to get 150 people to show up at an event (especially in this economy) it can take a 75-150 step process, with everything from emails, to postcards, sales letters, marketing pieces, preview calls, training calls, affiliate efforts, etc. It is a very complex process. Unfortunately, most things work the same way; an effective website that drives traffic and converts to leads then sales is a whole lot easier said than done.
In the search for solutions for your business challenges, first, realize that each step required to be a success may involve complex solutions. Nothing wrong with that (other than the hard work and time involved) and when you realize that and become consistent and frequent in the steps you do to create more business, you will be a huge success!
As I’ve mentioned before, Dan Kennedy has said, the reason 99% of the people are poor and 1% are rich is that the 99% that are poor want to buy simple solutions to complex problems. The 1% that are rich, realize that complex problems require complex solutions BUT when selling make sure you offer simple solutions to complex problems. Because that is what people want to buy! They want simple.
Any tools that you invest in to improve your business (some software programs are exceptions) will require a lot more work, time and probably expenses involved then what you are being told on the front end. We would prefer to work with those that realize at one level or another that it really is complex solutions involved.
On the other hand, simple does have a role in your business success. Some will say, “your information is too basic, too simple, I need the advanced stuff.” Yet, they are the same group, who are not doing the fundamentals to be successful.
John Wooden, the great coach of the UCLA basketball team won 8 NCAA championships in a row always preached: Do the fundamentals well! He never spoke about winning, just do the fundamentals well. This may be viewed as keeping it simple, but really, for most, doing consistent fundamentals may be rather complex. And just because they are easy to do, they may also be easy not to do.
Here is a great list of business and personal fundamentals to help keep your life simple and moving towards success!

  • When leaving a phone message, repeat your phone number twice (anytime I have an ad for salespeople and they leave their phone number only once, I delete their message).
  • Follow up when you say you will and do what you say. This may include scheduling an action on your calendar to follow up, or send an email. It involves being organized, before, during and after a call! Most just wing it and get on a call then jump to the next one. These are the same people that jump in and start their day without any plan or focus and are reactiveall day long. This does not lead to financial success.
  • Make sure you and your staff are consistent with your vision, brand and unique value proposition. If I call your staff, will I get 5 different answers as to what you do, or will it be the same,
    consistent, powerful message?
  • Answer the phone in a positive and uplifting manner (same with your cell phone or voice mail message).
  • Take time to plan your day each day before you work your plan!
  • Minimize interruptions, including facebook, twitter, email, staff, spouse…
  • Don’t overpromise. If you can’t do something by an expected timeframe, don’t say you can.
  •  In order to become more interesting you must become more interested in others!
  • Ask for referrals and value how you will take great care of their referrals.
  • Pay your referral fees on time.
  • Improve your website (one that NCP is doing soon), your marketing materials, your tools for your clients, your systems and training…You must be improving (growing)… or sliding behind.
  • Be consistent with your blog posts, article submissions, video uploads, don’t do two or three articles and then let 6 months go by without placing another.
  • Set up a marketing calendar and business calendar to track your time. Carve out time to work on or improve your business. That must be scheduled otherwise it will not get done.
  • Meet with staff and follow up on projects on a weekly basis.
  • Train, train and train your staff and yourself to be better.
  • Drink lots of water, get to bed early, eat well and exercise!
  • Offer value first to others. Always come from a place of offering value.
  • Track your personal budget and business budget. Take time weekly to measure your ratios and results.
  • Take time to rest and recover.
  • Focus on your outcomes, what you want, not what you do not want.
  • Do something to have fun on a weekly basis, something you love to rejuvenate yourself!
  • Laugh more often.

This list looks simple (I am sure you have more to add). The key is to take an honest evaluation to determine if you are doing each one of these consistently. If you are, congrats, you’re on your way to more success. If you are missing any, create an outline to measure your current success in each category, then set a goal where you would like to be 90 days from now. Then list a few tips on what has to happen in order for you to make the changes to make your life and business more successful! The key to success is to take IMMEDIATE and MASSIVE ACTION NOW! Best of luck!

Multi-Tiered Structuring Strategies for Maximum Asset Protection

One of the biggest mistakes I have found over the past 20 years is clients who sometimes have that false sense of security thinking they are totally protected with one legal entity.
Unfortunately, I have seen clients lose control of their companies, their personal assets, and even control of their operating business. The goal is to give you the strategies to plug up any gaping holes you may have in your shield of protection to your current and future assets.
Let’s review the basic’s. The first step is to separate your personal and business assets. That means not operating as a sole proprietorship and forming a separate legal entity like an LLC. Nevada offers an extra layer of protection when it comes to protecting the entity veil and making it harder for someone to come through to your personal assets (assuming you were the owner of the entity).
The next step is to separate your “Safe” from “Risk” assets. Most take the first step to separate their “risk” assets by forming a separate legal entity. Shortly we will cover how to add more separation for your business.
Many forget to form a separate legal entity to protect their “safe” assets, like gold, silver, stock in the stock market (even your cryptocurrency)…where there is no direct liability to you. I believe the reason for this is most think they do not have enough safe assets to protect.
There is no magic number, like once you achieve $100K in safe assets (outside your retirement plan) you need to form a separate LLC. The key question to ask is, “How would you feel if you lost all safe assets to a lawsuit, or action by your creditors?”
If you had $40K of investments unprotected, that may be very important to you, if that is all your safe assets. Also, if you have ownership interest in a business, you may be worth millions, but if you own it personally or by your living trust (which is protected from probate, not liability) you may lose control of that safe asset also!
If you own real estate outside of your principal residence, that should be held by a separate legal entity. It should not be owned by your safe asset holding LLC or by your business operating LLC. To this point your asset protection structure should look like the following diagram below. Notice that the living trust is owning the
membership interest in each LLC, which is ok because the LLC provides the “charging order” protection which is a legal remedy that only (typically) allows the creditor to receive an “economic interest” in distributions from the LLC, not a management interest in the membership interest that controls the company. Now, with the charging order and the living trust connected, you have the best of both worlds (still some improvement can be made. I will cover that part shortly).

Above is the diagram that points out the power of the “charging order” protection.

I find that most seem to forget that if you form an S or C corporation (except in Nevada, which is the only state that has the “charging order” protection for corporations) and you are sued personally for something unrelated to the operating company, you could lose control of your entire company AND ALL the assets of the company, including ownership to your website, bank accounts or any other assets titled to that company. Many seem to forget even who their website is owned by, which for any online marketer may be their biggest assets they lose control of.

The key part is to ask the question: What would happen if my business was sued at the operating level? Do you have any type of business liability insurance to handle the first hit? Most small businesses owners do not have any liability insurance. This means if your business is sued, your business is on the hook for all the legal fees to defend the business. You could lose all the assets, domain names and bank account balances in the lawsuit. The good news is your personal assets should be protected because of the separate legal entity.

The second important question becomes: What would happen if you were sued for something unrelated to the operating business at the personal level? Would you lose control of your company? Would you have a new business partner in your company? This is why so many business owners are vulnerable as a corporation where you own the stock personally.

Let’s discuss a couple powerful strategies involving multiple layers of entities to protect you and your business.

The first strategy involves the use of Single Member LLC’s disregarded for tax purposes to accomplish two goals: 1: to isolate liability to the main operating business (the main assets) and 2: to reduce your federal tax return expenses ( a single member LLC does not have a separate federal tax return due when it is taxed as a disregarded entity vs. an LLC taxed as a partnership would have a 1065 due federally which may be $400-$800 each).
Let’s assume in our example the husband and wife have an internet marketing business and they realize they do not want all their eggs in one basket with their growing business. It is typical if you are a speaker from the platform that would be a separate legal entity, also, if you put on your own events that would be a separate legal entity, and your coaching program would be a separate legal entity.
Each business has its own level of liability and forming a separate legal entity for each to isolate liability is a smart move. You may want all the profits and losses of each business to flow to one entity for tax purposes to simplify the tax structure. In the diagram below you will see this example and how the profits will flow through an LLC taxed as an S corporation to the individual owners.
Ideally, the individual owners will have a living trust set up for estate planning purposes to complete the planning. In this strategy make sure you separate each LLC for each business on all the websites, bank accounts, credit cards… to run them as separate legal entities.

The next diagram is an advanced strategy taking the previous strategy to the next level.

Let me share a story that shares the purpose of this diagram below. A couple of years back, I had a client from Hawaii who had a very successful flooring business doing about $3 million per year in annual revenue. He had a partner and they operated under a Hawaii LLC taxed as a partnership. The one partner was involved in a high profile divorce and the spouse (non-partner) engaged in the charging order, again the LLC as one of the assets involved in the divorce.
Even though the charging order protected the LLC’s assets, that spouse was able to subpoena all the business records of the LLC to determine if any expenses were hidden or going to other companies that the spouse had control of. This was very disruptive to the operating entity. Although the charging order did its job, this was disruptive.
When the partner finalized the divorce and moved to Las Vegas to open a similar business with his same partner, we added a layer of protection at the ownership level. Each owner formed a separate LLC to hold only safe assets, and the safe asset it would own was the ownership interest in the operating company. NOW, if either partner had a legal issue, personal, or another divorce, instead of a charging order against the ownership interest in the operating
company, it would be a charging order against the safe asset holding LLC. This would insulate the operating business from any legal issues with any of the owners.
This same strategy works well with an investment group, with many owners, to require each owner to have their own separate LLC to own the ownership interest in the investment fund. This would help avoid any disruptions to the investment fund.
In this example, the flooring company may have different divisions, each with its own product line, and a single member LLC may help with the other structure for each division for liability reasons. See the diagram below.

In conclusion, a multi-tiered approach is a very powerful, yet underutilized strategy that many times can be the difference between growing your net worth and not having any at all. It is not if you will be sued, but when. The more protection will help you keep more of your assets for you and your family.

Is Your Business Financially Naked?

The #1 Reason Businesses FAIL is Lack of Cash Flow.
Does your Business have the Proper Lines of Trade Credit and Cash Lines Established? Are You Losing Business Because of a Weak (or no) Business Credit Profile? One of the main reasons you incorporated or formed an LLC was to separate your business assets from your personal assets. This will help you limit your liability and have a better marketing advantage when it comes to joint ventures (the fastest way to grow your business especially host-beneficiary relationships).
The key is to separate for success. The biggest mistake we see is many entrepreneurs invest all their money to separate their personal and business assets but NEVER separate their personal and business credit (at least not properly).
4 Critical Reasons to Separate Business Credit (in your entity) from Your Personal Credit:
1. It is how your business will be evaluated for business and joint ventures. You may be losing clients, bids, vendors and joint ventures without even knowing about it. Why? The best way to check out a company’s financials is to invest $60 $150 with Dun and Bradstreet® to pull a report. This will tell you everything you need to know about someone’s business. Most of you will NOT like what you will see on a report of a joint venture company or key vendor. FYI, an 80 Paydex score will not cut it.
In fact, I would strongly recommend you pull a report on your own company. Go to DnBCredit Report for the options, you may be shocked as to what you see (or don’t see)! How do You Feel Standing Financially Naked in Front of Your Customers? Now it may be time to fix that and put your “financial clothes” on. Look at it this way; how does someone check out your company and what you say about it? Does your story add up? Can someone simply call the bank to pull your last three months of bank statements? No, that will not happen. Can someone call the IRS and ask to see your last three years tax returns to see if the numbers add up to the “story” you are painting about your successful company? Absolutely not. The best option that one can do to “check you out” is to invest the $60-$150 at D&B® and pull a report on your company. Company’s right this very minute are losing millions in revenues because JV partners, clients, vendors, and potential customers are deciding NOT to do business because of a very weak looking D&B® report. Now your business should have a strong business credit profile with Corporate Experian® and Business Equifax® in addition to D&B®. It is not only about separating your personal and business credit and securing access to more vendor and cash lines of credit, this is vital to any business success.
2. Whether you like it or not, Corporate Experian® is NOW creating profiles on companies through the SOS’s database on new filings. This means a profile is being created and you do not know what it will say to your potential customers (unless you know how to develop it properly).
3. Develop vendor lines of credit to protect your cash flow AND put your business in a better position to secure CASH LINES of credit to grow your business. As you know the banks have raised the bar dramatically on what is required to secure a bank line of credit. One key component is the amount of vendor credit granted to your business-not just an 80 Paydex score.
4. You will protect your personal credit (whether it is good or bad) from your new business. If your personal credit is strong, you will want to minimize personal guarantees with vendors that may jeopardize your personal credit plus develop cash lines of credit in the name of the entity under the EIN number (yes, it is personally guaranteed but the debt will not show up in your personal credit bureaus-which will help protect your personal credit score. If you have a bad personal credit score, you MUST develop your business credit profile to put the business in a position to qualify for credit on its own. The Biggest Mistake? Waiting to develop your business credit profile until you need the vendor or cash lines of credit. If your business is doing well and you feel you do NOT need the credit that is the best time to develop it. This is what George Ross; the attorney for Donald Trump told me when I asked him the best time to develop relationships with banks. Develop credit before you need it. Are you an International Owner of a U.S. Company?
 
Take these four steps and make sure your business is not financially naked!

Tips for International Clients Doing Business in the United States

There are many advantages for international clients to establish a U.S. company. Two that are top on the list are to help you develop more trust with the largest consumer market in the world ($158.3 BILLION in online sales in 2010) and to help establish joint ventures with the U.S. market. A U.S. consumer would much rather prefer to do business with a U.S. company. If you are in Australia, the UK, or New Zealand, you appear offshore to the U.S. consumer…and that means potential problems when it comes to recourse, or for other issues. If you are overseas, it may be very expensive to get basic issues handled with customer service or refunds. In this case, the U.S. business owner or consumer would rather do business with another U.S. company. That is where you can come into play if you are international. You can establish a U.S. company (your U.S. Cash Machine) to access this market.
There are a few tips to help you do more business in the U.S. Market:
1. Utilize your U.S company. Actually, set up the merchant account, have revenue going through it, file U.S. tax returns and get the ball rolling. Don’t just wait until a big launch comes along. Operate it as a real separate company.
2. Promote your U.S. company online (just as you would your main company). It will look better if both your home country company and your U.S. company both have a lot of articles, videos and traffic online vs. just your U.S. company used like a “shell” just to store money from a launch you did in your home country. This gives the impression as someone searches on line that the U.S. company is for real!
3. Protect Your Name in the U.S. If you have a name that can be trademarked (listen to the August 2009 Top 5% Club call with Chris DeMassa on the process of trademarking your name). This will add more value to your company and set you apart because you are protecting your name. Even most American internet marketers and small businesses do NOT trademark their names. This will send a message that you are for real!
4. Promote Joint Ventures Through Your U.S. Company. Even if you normally do all your JVs through your home state country, start establishing joint ventures (host/beneficiary relationships) through your U.S. company, which will establish that as a separate business and identity. This will help you with U.S. JVs in the future, plus help separate your business assets from your home country and what you have going on in the U.S. market.
5. Consider U.S. Vendors. This will put your business in the position that your team is not totally “offshore” and will connect you with more U.S. businesses. Especially if you have a customer service team or call center that is remote from your business, in the U.S. we would prefer to hear from U.S customer service. Yes, it is true that many U.S. companies outsource to India and other countries (it is different when a big telephone company does that vs. a small entrepreneur).
The U.S. is a huge market that is going to need more of your support and solutions. The debt crisis may only get worse, as banks are not lending to small U.S. businesses and individuals are having difficulty securing credit. That means if you are offering solutions for businesses or how to make more money (especially online), you may have a goldmine in front of you.

Did You Start Your Business With A Dream Or A Vision?

FAST BUSINESS CREDIT Helps You Make It A Reality Faster Than Anyone Else!

Let me ask you an important question: What is your dream, your vision? Are you one of the 500,000 every month looking to start a business? Perhaps you will become an Awakened Entrepreneur, as Michael Gerber describes in his recent book, Awakening the Entrepreneur Within. (Be sure to listen to my timeless interview with Michael Gerber, a valuable bonus that you’ll receive as a new FAST BUSINESS CREDIT client that will inspire you to take your dream to a new level.)
Perhaps, your dream for your new business is to provide quality services to your clients and make a difference in your marketplace.  You’re no doubt excited, yet maybe feeling a bit overwhelmed. You may have the ability to start a successful business, yet may not have a handle on the key strategies to get you there quickly.
If anything rings true here, I know how you feel. I was there six years ago when I started FAST BUSINESS CREDIT . I was on a mission to provide top-quality service for those who wanted to incorporate in Nevada.  I considered it my duty to dispel the misinformation that was so prevalent back then (and still is) about this valuable, yet misunderstood strategy.
Believe me; I know what it’s like to be an entrepreneur. Over the last eleven years, I have invested an enormous amount of money with many top professionals to ensure conscientious, accurate service for our clients, including fees paid to Deloite and Touche, multiple law firms and other professionals. I have personally worked many 70-90 hours, seven days a week.  I have made (and learned from) every mistake in the book along the way, especially in the HR and employee area.

First, The Harsh Reality…

Here is some of the background of the uphill battle the small business owner’s face when it comes to getting capital and what some of the options are and some of the difficulties they may have.
Local, regional, and national banks had one-page application loans, where they lend between $5,000 and $100,000 unsecured loans to businesses.  It was based on their credit score.
That product that was available 3 to 6 months ago up until it basically disappeared. Also credit scores on the principal owner was approximately 680 credit score.  That credit score has gone to 720, 730.
Even with Help by the Government Banks Still
Have Problems!
Now instead of looking at the individual, the banks are also looking at the person’s business.  It’s virtually impossible to get a small business loan in this environment now, because the banks themselves don’t have the liquidity to advance this money to the merchant and they’re finding reasons not to give loans.
Now, in this special report, you will learn the best secrets to put your business in a position to gain access to cash and capital and to retain 100% ownership in your company! As you know, the financial and lending world it a moving target. It is quite possible that several of the secrets may change over time.
The key is to focus on the strategy behind the secret so you are in a better position to ask better questions for your bank or financial professionals. You will now be armed with better information and a structure from which to ask important questions about what has to happen in order for your business to be in the best position to gain the most cash and capital!
Plus you are likely to receive different opinions on certain approaches and criteria. Successful people looks for what works and move forward….unsuccessful people look for one part or pierce of information not to be accurate or off with current standards and therefore disregard the rest of the information. Don’t fall into that trap! That can be a costly mistake!

What Does NCP Have to Offer That Other Entity-Forming Services Do Not?

Nevada Corporate Planners is in its twelfth year in business. In that time we have worked with more than 5,000 business clients!
NCP is used exclusively in Nevada by nationally-renown attorneys, such as:
NCP develops tools to keep you on track. You’re going into business to do what you do best, NOT to become a corporate or LLC expert.  That’s our job.  NCP sends you key reminders via e-mail during the first six weeks of your business to keep you and your new entity on track.  Plus, you receive tax e-mails at important times throughout the year to ensure you’re in compliance.  You’ll also find our extensive “Members Only” section invaluable for keeping abreast of every step in the corporate protocol process.
NCP constantly updates its research. What does the IRS say about S-corporation salaries versus distributions? Is the charging order still powerful? What’s the latest on trusts? How can you best protect your residence? You’ll be on top of the latest information and research about your business and how to protect your financial future.

NCP provides business support after formation. Most business owners think the most difficult part of forming their new entity is determining which structure to choose, in which state, and when to get started. The truth is, that’s only the beginning! NCP’s PROACTIVE support is the key to getting your business off to a fast, successful start during those critical first 90 days. You’ll receive follow up calls and e-mails, plus a comprehensive walk-through of your corporate or LLC record book.
NCP surprises you with frequent bonuses. We believe that you deserve — and should get — more than just what you pay for, and we know that it’s is in our best interest to see you succeed.  That’s why we give you many powerful bonuses after you become a client.  Just for starters, you’ll learn all about asset protection with the latest book by a top U.S. attorney.  Marketing genius Jay Abraham’s transcripts then teach you how to exponentially grow your business (and at $5,000 an hour, Jay knows what he’s talking about!)  With gifts like these (and many more) you’ll be fully armed for whatever the business world throws at you.


NCP has many happy, successful clients. When all is said and done, it all comes down to results — consistent, ongoing success. Virtually every website has testimonials, but NCP is one of the few that date our testimonials.  Why?  We want you to know that our many success stories from satisfied clients continue to come in, week after week.

How Does NCP Compare to The Competition?
I actually encourage you to compare! I want you to feel comfortable knowing you’re getting the best value for your money, and the best support and commitment to help see you succeed!
The key is to compare “apple to apples.”  It’s hard to know the questions to ask until you have a grasp on the big picture of what to expect from truly great professional service.  To help you, I have assembled a list of criteria… listed in the xt blog post.

Do I Need An Attorney To Incorporate?

An attorney is not a legal requirement to incorporate. You could prepare and file the articles of incorporation yourself.  But, you must fully understand all the requirements of your intended state of formation.  That’s what NCP is here for.  We make sure you know everything you need to know, and give you the tools to make sure you’ve done everything you need to do. NCP does not require a retainer before you get started. You will receive all the fees up front so you know exactly what you be charged! Costs are not out of control with NCP!
In fact, when people hire an attorney to incorporate, the attorney often actually outsources the work to a company like NCP (and then tacks on a $1,000 fee for his trouble!)  Working directly with NCP is like buying wholesale instead of retail.  This will save you money up front.
You can use NCP’s service to incorporate and not only save money on attorney fees, but you’ll rest assured that all forms are filed properly. We recognize that there are areas where an attorney should be retained, especially when it comes to shareholder and buy/sell agreements, raising money, contracts, or to have your documents reviewed.  However, NCP will conscientiously inform you any time an attorney should be consulted. If you need a referral, NCP is happy to provide one for you!
