Are you thinking of starting a new business but have no clue where to begin?
Running a successful business can be an art form. It's not easy and you might find yourself jumping through several hoops when trying to launch your brainchild.
That's where FindLaw comes in. We have a free mini-guide to help you navigate through the entrepreneurial waters. This free download is loaded with valuable information.
This helpful mini guide takes you through all the steps needed to get your business off the ground, such as:
- Drafting a business plan. Every good business needs a good business plan. It's the roadmap of your success; the detailed process you plan to get you from startup to profits.
- Selecting your business structure. Should you form a sole proprietorship or a partnership? What about forming a Limited Liability Company? Or, you could opt for the most traditional choice and form a corporation. Each of these entity choices come with legal issues and technicalities.
- Hiring employees. What documents and contracts do you need to hire employees? What laws govern employment relationships? Should you classify your workers as "employees" or as "independent contractors"?
- Applying for business permits and licenses. Many budding entrepreneurs have no idea that they need to apply for business licenses or permits. Are you aware of your permit and licensing requirements?
Our free mini guide is a great starting point for when you launch your new business. And if you still have specialized questions you could always speak to a qualified business attorney.
