As a mother of young children, I would like to run my own business instead of returning to corporate life. How do I get started?
To help customers identify the first steps to starting a new company, we've developed a Business Startup Checklist. You can review and print our 20 tips to beginning a successful business here. Becoming familiar with these common requirements should simplify the business startup process.
As we mention in our Business Startup Checklist, we recommend that all entrepreneurs develop a business plan. The plan should detail the goals and objectives for your new company. A well-written business plan will demonstrate your commitment to your business. For help creating a business plan, view our tips for writing a business plan.
To officially register your new company in your state, you will need to select a business name and structure. incorporate.com can help you incorporate or form a Limited Liability Company (LLC). We even offer a Business Startup Wizard to help you determine the right business structure for you.
