MODULE ONE: Selecting the TYPE of your Business

.

Welcome to "Small Business Quick Start Course". It is designed to get your SMALL BUSINESS started with little to no money. Your are not getting a business license, a contractor's license, insurance, a bond, creating an LLC or an S-Corp or opening up your SEP (Simplified Employee Pension) account. YET!  This is just Guessing & Testing to see if you even want to continue with a small business. If you make the moves you will have a solid foundation to build on.

.

What can you do? What would you like to do?  You should know the answer to these questions. 

.

From Window Washing to getting your Contractors License and everything in between. You might work for a Contractor now, a private party bar-tending company, a Cleaning or dog walking service, etc. and have been doing side jobs or moonlighting. Now it is time to step up and make it a real business. You will start part-time and work at it full-time when you are ready.

MODULE TWO: Selecting the NAME of your Business

.

Start with your name then the name of your small business.

Example:  JR'S Window Washing Service

.

What is your intention with the business. Will it be a family legacy or something you want to sell down the road?

Decide on a name to get started. You can change it once you go legit. Remember you are Guessing and Testing.

.

Let's talk about "Future Pacing". In this module, there are a few things you might want to consider in case you want to stick with the name you selected or this process will help you choose a new name for your new SMALL BUSINESS.

You will start your Small Business as a Sole Proprietor. 

.

This means YOU are the company. So we will focus on that and briefly talk about other Business Structures such as: LLC's, S-Corps, C-Corps & Family limited partnerships. Jon ran his small business as a sole proprietor for 20 years before he upgraded to an S-Corp.

.

MODULE FOUR: Getting Your Phone and Phone number

Jon started his 1st Service Business when he was twenty using only his personal land line at the time. JR's Plumbing Service. He never made it into a real business because he had no idea what he was doing business wise at that time. He knew how to fix things in exchange for money, but I didn't know how to make it into a real business. He was going through some guessing and testing like you are now. When he started his Retrofitting Business he got a separate business phone number dedicated just for his new business. When cell phones went main stream he transferred his land line number to his cell phone. He bought an inexpensive one that works perfectly for a Small Business and he still uses it today. He does not have a cell phone payment or insurance on it. If it breaks, He goes to e-bay and I gets another one for $25 dollars. Remember you want to spend as little money as possible. He will show you exactly "how to" do this.

MODULE FIVE: Getting Your E-mail Account

.

Now that you have secured your business name and phone number, you will now create a new E-mail account.

.

If you did your "Future Pacing" assignment you should already know the name of your e-mail account. So this should not take long to create.
