What’s stopping you starting your own business?

Woman Holding Stop SignBefore I started my first business, I had a job. I hated that job – not because it didn’t pay well (because it did), and not because I didn’t like the people I worked with (the majority of them were great) – but because I didn’t like being told what to do. Of course the first thing any employee in any company needs to understand is that they’re going to get told what to do at some point or other – that is unless you start up your own company. Starting up your own business is a lot easier than it sounds – and we here at CorpNet can help you!

There’s no greater feeling that waking up in the morning to face another day of being your own boss – and doing your own thing. With no one else to answer to you really can’t beat starting your own business – all you need to decide is what kind of ownership structure you’re going to employ. Here at CorpNet.com, we can help you in that decision! If you’re likely to want to keep things small and work on your own – a Sole Proprietor business is probably what you need. If you want to reach for the stars and start the next big brand – perhaps you should be looking at forming a Limited Liability Corporation (LLC).

Once you’ve chosen the ownership structure that’s right for you, with or without our help – it’s time to decide on a name for your business. Deciding on a name for your business isn’t as straightforward as you might have hoped – but that’s fine, because here at CorpNet we can help you identify possible names for your company – ensuring it’s fully compliant with state law.

At CorpNet, we can help you every step of the way in your journey to becoming a business owner – we’ll help you obtain the correct business licenses and permits, a Federal Tax Identification Number (Tax ID Number), we’ll help you register with the State Revenue, and we’ll even give you a starting a business checklist! Now you really do have absolutely no excuse not to start your own business, especially if it’s something you’ve been thinking about doing for a while.

Getting back to my first job; it was as a manager at my local McDonald’s restaurant. I started as a crew member and worked my way up – it was fun for a while, but I couldn’t help thinking I would be better suited to working for myself – on my own terms. I put off my departure from my job for over 6 months until one day I decided I’d had enough – and leaving was the best thing I ever did.

If you’re stuck in a job that you don’t like – don’t think you have no option other than to amble along against your will. Start thinking about starting your own business, then once you have an idea and a business plan we can help you. Starting your own business could just be the best thing you’ve ever done!
