Hey all .. In case you haven't seen it yet, here tis. There's a million things I'd change, of course, but for my first time on LIVE national tv ... getting interviewed by THAT GUY via teleprompter ... well, I'll take a partial win.
We're picking up where we left off a few months ago with digitally interviewing awesome entrepreneurs! This will be a regular series in which we conduct ichat interviews with entrepreneurs both locally and not, some within Lady Rogue Business Network, others supporters from a distance.
Our very first "IMterview" (term coined by Ed himself!) is with Ed Jewell (right) of… Continue
In the spirit of collaboration that Lionel Flax mentioned at the meeting last week, I wanted to offer some basic legal help to the new business owners out there. So, I wrote an article this morning about how to form a basic LLC entity that will protect your personal assets and provide some nice tax benefits.
A lot of LRBN members are busy working full-time while trying to launch a new business or get a fledgling business off the ground. It's understandable to want to use the corporate e-mail account, mobile phone, Blackberry or iPhone to send messages regarding your personal business. What if your employer finds out and doesn't like it? The Supreme Court is getting ready to decide how much privacy we can expect while using corporate e-mail accounts. It's worth a read for all busy… Continue

We are heading into our one-year anniversary of the Lady Rogue Business Network, and we are proud to say that we're 230 members strong.
I think we're on to something with authentic, non-sucky networking. I think our members have a lot to offer each other. We'd like to develop a more robust model for LRBN that would create revenue for the people who contribute to it.
We have a lot of ideas brewing over at rogueApron HQ, and… Continue

Hey guys ... I noticed our last two blog posts were rather promotional in nature. We are all here to promote our ventures and share expertise, but I'd rather we kept these blog posts in the nature of educational/requests for help/great things we read/etc.
I needed personalized cards for Thank You notes in the night club industry. I contacted Natalie and told her what I had in mind. She created a packet of cards for me at a great price. She's really awesome to work with and very fast at producing them. Keep her in mind if you ever need personalized cards made for your business or personal needs.
The final design is below and links to her profile on LRBN.
Well, as most of you know, I created the pseudonym of 'Lady Rogue' in order to preserve a modicum of privacy with the rogueApron project. But as time passed, I started to realize that I didn't personally need to "be" Lady Rogue ... Lady Rogue could be any of us who are working hard to create our dream futures.
I've gotten a chance to meet so many other amazing Atlanta ladies who are starting their own businesses and should really meet each other. Hence - the Lady Rogue Business… Continue
