I know what it’s like to get started. As a blogger myself, I was in beginner’s shoes once. Starting as a new mom who hired a website designer, I quickly discovered that I wanted to make it easy, convenient, and simple for anyone to start their own boss babe empire or develop their passion.
I’m sure that you may have heard about GDPR by now. I’ve been receiving a ton of emails from other business either explaining what it is or informing me on updates to their policy’s page. We’re also taking the steps to be GDPR compliant.

GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is Europe’s new regulation law on data protection and privacy for Europe citizens. Even though it’s an EU law (I’m located in the US), we still have to comply if their citizens are visiting and shopping on our site.
Why is everyone in a panic?
Because of the fines we could possibly have to pay. But don’t panic if you are. The EU will give you a few warnings before they will fine you. The fines for not complying are up to 4% annual global turnover or €20M (whichever is bigger). Crazy right!? Especially for small businesses and simple bloggers. I believe this law is really meant for huge companies like Facebook and Google but we all still have to comply.
I found a really good article from inLinkz explaining in more detail about GDPR. I highly recommend this read! It has a lot of good information and great tips for ways to make your site/business GDPR compliant.
