Building a business is hard work! How do you know who to hire? Where do you find the right wholesale opportunities or meaningful collaborations? Will you have to spend sleepless nights in front of your computer? We asked Emily Ley all of this and more, and we think you’ll find her answers just as perfect her product line.
I use Dropbox to store and organize all of my business files. I love it because I can easily access all of my files from any computer, anywhere in the world—or in my case, anywhere in my home from a variety of devices.
Most days I am working from my home office on an iMac, but sometimes I like to grab my laptop and work from the sofa . . . or my bed. That’s one of the pleasures of working from home, right? And I still haven’t been able to kick the habit of bringing my laptop on vacation, just in case.

The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) goes into effect on May 25, 2018, and my inbox is flooded with emails from Google, ConvertKit, Etsy, Typeform, and all the other services I use for my business, telling me how they are changing their policies in order to comply. It got me thinking about my own website and whether or not I need to update my policies.
Have you been wondering the same thing? Or are you just deleting those emails thinking this is something for businesses much larger than yours? Or perhaps you have no idea what the GDPR is . . . in either case, you should to keep reading. I’m going to tell you how to make sure your website complies with the new regulations and stays compliant, for life!
But first, let me tell you a little story about how my business website may have been breaking the law . . . or maybe not. We’ll never know.
