Welcome back to the blog!
In today’s post we are talking about starting a business. Being your own boss and being in control of life is what we are all about here at Queen Jazz Reigns so lets get into it!
So you think you want to become a business owner? Let’s talk about it. Here are the steps I took to form my business as an LLC.
First things first
Make sure you do your research and and plan for your business. You want to make sure it will be profitable. A business plan is a great start. If you need help consider hiring a business coach or strategist.
- Create your business and register it with your Secretary of State ($100). (GA Secretary of State). I used a service like Zen Business to ensure everything was correct from the beginning but you can definitely do it yourself! They also can handle all the filing (steps 2-3).
- Obtain a EIN number (free)
- Get a business license if applicable (check your county).
- Open a business bank account (I opened an account with NOVO).
- Get an accounting system like Quickbooks for your business.
- Get clients or customers!
Those are the simple steps I took and I hope you find it helpful!
