Starting Your Own Business

So much of my work finds me in conversation with people who want to start their own business but don’t know what the logistics are with respect to that. At the very basic level, in order to start a small business you need to consider the following:

  1. How do I want to organize my business? Will it be a corporation, an LLC, or a sole proprietorship?

  2. Registration with the state

  3. What type of insurance might I need?

  4. Will I hire employees? If so, will they be W-2 or 1099?

  5. What is the market like for my type of business? Have I done market research?

  6. Do I need any type of special license?

  7. What will my initial investment need to be?

  8. Do I have a business plan in place?

  9. How do I apply for a small business loan if I need it?

  10. How do I market my business both digitally and otherwise?

These are just a few items to consider. If you’d like personal help, please reach out!
