How To Start Your First Business

You don’t have to go the standard “get a degree and get a job” route. As a matter of fact, to some of us, that sounds absolutely terrible! For those of you that want to turn a hobby into a side hustle, or turn your side hustle into a full fledged business the only thing stopping you….is you!

Make sure you check out the video description as well because I have linked the most important resources that you will need to use to start your business!

The Small Business Administration: Why You Should Use it!

The best thing about the Small Business Administration is that it is free! You give them a call, schedule a meeting, and they will step you through the process from creating your Doing Business As (DBA), to taxes and licensing, to help with marketing and everything in between! If you’re wanting to start a sole proprietorship (easiest business structure) they should be the first stop on your list!
