Taking the first step can be very intimidating when starting your own business. There are several things to consider.
One of the first is determining the best business structure for the business. Is a Sole proprietorship, LLC, Corporation, etc. best for you? Consulting with qualified and experienced Attorneys, CPAs or Tax Practioners are generally a great place to start.
