When Michael and I started all of this entrepreneurial stuff ages ago, just filling out a DBA was scary. Heck, the first time I heard it, I didn't know what it was ("Doing Business As," by the way), so naturally I was terrified to do it, not to mention clueless. And that was just to start a small home-based business with just the two of us - forget something big with employees and all of that fun stuff.
Getting help to start your own traditional business is a must in my book. Did you know that there are states that are better to start a business in? I had no idea. For instance, Florida has no personal taxes, no corporate taxes for S Corporations, and no requirements to be a United States resident or citizen, so Florida corporations are at an advantage over many other states right out of the starting gate. Nevada corporations enjoy no state income taxes, and stockholders, directors, and officers don't have to live or even have meetings in the state! Texas corporations receive benefits like no corporate income tax, no personal income tax, and no tax on intangible property.
So if I'm so dumb about all of this stuff, where did I learn these business jewels? IncParadise.com - they've got all the information you need to incorporate in any state in the Union, including benefits of doing business in that state, answers to frequently asked questions, and quote comparisons of other businesses that offer incorporation assistance so you can be assured you're getting the best value for your money.
I dare you, go pull that dream of your own business off of the shelf and take it over to IncParadise.
