Nellie Akalp is an entrepreneur and legal business expert. She is an interesting guest on the podcast and shares nuts & bolts tips for our entrepreneurial community.
Nellie is a mom of four children who is married to her husband and business partner of 18 years. She and her husband started their first online legal document filing service in 1997 in their small apartment living room after purchasing a domain name for $100. In 2005 that company was acquired by Intuit for $20 million.
They soon found out that the corporate way of Intuit was not a good fit for them so they stepped down from the previous company and took a few years off. Too motivated to retire young, the couple got back to work in 2009 and launched CorpNet.com where they help entrepreneurs start, grow and maintain their ventures. Throughout her career, Nellie has formed well over half a million LLCs for entrepreneurs across many industries.
Nellie shares tips on how to legally start a business at Forbes, Entrepreneur, Mashable, Huffington Post and more. She would love to share some info for your entrepreneurial community about topics like business structure basics, why incorporate, what state to incorporate, when to incorporate, etc and/or just chat about her entrepreneurial story to inspire others to go after their business dreams.
