Resources

Naming Your Business

Every business has to have a name.  Get some inspiration if you don’t have one yet.  If you do, check to make sure that the name you want is available

 

Business Plans

A business plan doesn’t have to be a 100-page document but it does have to encapsulate the key areas of your business.  Get started writing a simplified version

 

Legal Help

Consulting a lawyer early can protect your business and save money in the long-run, but it doesn’t have to be expensive.  Consult a local small business attorney in your area or find help online.

 

Claim Your Digital Properties

Grab your URL, build a website and claim your name on social media so your future customers can easily find you

Don’t forget to set up your business’ bank accounts and lines of credit if you’ll need them.
