Entrepreneur’s Thanksgiving: Reasons to be thankful in running a business

83_4238945Thanksgiving is such a special time, and for those of us who have been fortunate enough to be able to start a business, we have more to be thankful for than ever. I was thinking of my own life as an entrepreneur and CEO of CorpNet. Every day running a business, marketing my business, working with my treasured small business employees and customers, I feel an overwhelming sense of gratitude for so many things.

Here are a few of my favorite reasons to be thankful:

  • I’m thankful for the flexibility and freedom of entrepreneurship. Ever since I decided to start a business, I get to work my own hours, chart my own course, have an awesome career and still get to be a mommy to my four children. I’ve written before about how when women decide to start a business, they can truly “have it all” – I’m grateful every day for being able to spend time with my kids, and the flexibility that comes from being my own boss makes this even easier.
  • I’m thankful for my husband and business partner, Phil Akalp. Because we decided to start a business together, we get to work together as best friends and business partners every single day, and we get to spend time together at work and at home. It’s not always easy being married to your business partner, but we love it! I feel like we have our very own Ron and Nancy Reagan kind of love story going on – and I’m grateful for every day that we have together.
  • I’m thankful for CorpNet’s employees. I don’t really consider my small business employees as “employees,” I consider them family. I love coming to work and spending time with them and laughing together all day – we have a great time together! Who says that work has to be boring? and remember great employees are the foundations for great companies!
  • I’m thankful for our amazing team of talented bloggers who help me create the content for the CorpNet blog and continue to serve as a valuable resource to our readers.

Fears of Entrepreneurs: The “Scariest” things about Starting a Business

367_2885661In honor of Halloween, I’d like to discuss a few “frightful” topics. I’ve helped hundreds of thousands of entrepreneurs over the years start a business by setting up an LLC or Corporation. Here at CorpNet.com, we talk to entrepreneurs every day who are starting on an exciting journey to pursue their dreams.

But the truth is, entrepreneurship and running  a business is not always a dream. Sometimes it can feel like a nightmare! People who decide to start a business often experience a lot of fear and uncertainty. So as we prepare for trick-or-treating and all the fun things that go along with Halloween, I’d like to discuss some of these most common fears of entrepreneurs, and explain how you can overcome them.

Top Fears of Entrepreneurs:

  • Fear of failure:Every entrepreneur has moments of being afraid that the business won’t succeed. What if customers go away? What if the positive “buzz” that surrounded your new business launch dries up? What if your business slides into complacency and mediocrity, and enters into a slow death spiral? How to manage this entrepreneurial fear: Accept and embrace the possibility of failure. Failure is a constant specter for any entrepreneur. Every successful business might eventually fail; it’s a fact of life. The “creative destruction” of the U.S. economy is constantly rewarding winners and weeding out the companies that can’t keep up. Don’t become paralyzed by fear. Instead, every day, look to find proactive ways to make a positive difference. Embrace failure. If you try a new idea or introduce a new product and it doesn’t succeed, use the experience as a learning opportunity. Find out what works. Keep adapting and exploring and connecting with your customers. Failure doesn’t have to be something to fear. Instead, facing up to the prospect of failure is part of the discipline of keeping your company on track.

All About the Limited Liability Company (LLC)

705_3546162Here at CorpNet, one of our biggest services is helping business owners form an LLC and manage the business filings to register their business with the state authorities. Deciding to form an LLC can be one of the best business decisions you’ve ever made, especially if you want flexibility with regards to taxation, ease of including partners or operating as a sole proprietor, and most importantly, the “limitation of liability” to protect your personal assets from the debts or liabilities of your business.

Since we work so often with entrepreneurs who want to form an LLC, we’d like to dedicate today’s blog post to tell you all about this unique, flexible, adaptable corporate structure.

What is an LLC?

LLC is short for “Limited Liability Company,” (NOT a Limited Liability Corporation)  which is an interesting definition – unlike a C-Corporation or S-Corporation, an LLC is not technically a “corporation” in the same sense. The LLC acts like a hybrid business entity, giving the owner some of the same characteristics as a corporation, but with the pass-through taxation and flexible operations of a sole proprietorship.

What are some of the main advantages of incorporating a business as an LLC? Continue reading “All About the Limited Liability Company (LLC)” »

When You Start a Business with CorpNet, You Get Personalized Service!

At CorpNet, we believe that entrepreneurs want to be in business “for” themselves, not “by” themselves. You don’t have to go it alone when figuring out how to incorporate your business. CorpNet has a team of business formation specialists who can help answer your questions, evaluate your options, and recommend the best ways for you to incorporate your business and manage the business filings along the way.

Other incorporation services tend to be higher-volume, more automated and less personal. They often are dealing with higher volumes of calls and so they might just want to quickly make the sale and get you off the phone.

Hire CorpNet to Start a Business? We’ve Done it Before!

If you’ve never done it before, incorporating a business can be confusing. The forms and requirements are often poorly written with lots of “legalese” and ambiguities. How do you know which legalese applies to you? How do you know that you’re doing it right?

We’ve heard from lots of customers that when they try to incorporate a business or form an LLC on their own, they quickly discover that they’re “in over their head” and need help.

Even if you manage to fill out the forms by yourself, then you have to spend time driving to the post office or the Secretary of State’s office to file the forms. How do you know you filled out the forms correctly? What if something goes wrong? What if there’s a delay or error that results in you not being able to start your business? What if someone else swoops in and takes your chosen business name? Continue reading “Hire CorpNet to Start a Business? We’ve Done it Before!” »
