You have come to the right place, if you are in the early stages of thinking about starting a small business, or even, if you have started up your business, and realized you missed a few things. If you are thinking about “becoming your own boss” this is a chance to get an overview of the things you need to know.
Join attorney and SCORE presenter, Frank P. Farmer, Jr., in a discussion of the ‘nuts and bolts” issues that should be considered when starting and operating a small business. Frank will discuss topics including the need and usefulness of developing a business plan; selecting a business organizational structure; fictitious name registration; licensing; hiring employees vs. independent contractors; obtaining tax identification numbers and other related topics (as time permits).
