Many of us want to become entrepreneurs in today’s economy. Do you own a small business, or would you like to start one? You’ll find some great information here.
There are many kinds of small businesses. On this site, we focus more in-depth on e-commerce and blogging businesses, but there are local shops and service providers, consultants and coaches, who all qualify as well.
When you’re first starting out, you will want to decide how to structure your business. Will a sole proprietorship work for you, or do you need to form an LLC or partnership?
Most likely, your first business will be a side hustle. This means you’ll be doing the work of the business around your full-time job. It may mean working early mornings, evenings, or weekends.
Hey, no one said being an entrepreneur was easy!
