I know because I've gone online trying to find them before going out to their location, and I came up empty handed. It's really disappointing, and a bit discouraging when you can't find what you're looking for online. Plus, I'm not a fan of driving around town only to return home without having accomplished my goal.
Anyhow, before I venture out, I need to know a few things. I'd prefer answers from people in the U.S because that's where I'm located, and I know that you can relate.
The first thing I'm wondering is whether or not I need a business license?
I'm going to be working in my name, accepting payments in my name, but of course, there are laws about conducting business. And, I really don't want any trouble there.
Do I need a business bank account?
Again, I will be accepting payments in my name. But, because it is for a business transaction, do I need to deposit those funds into a business account or is personal fine?
When you approach business owners, what title do you designate for yourself?
I've heard many say that this is a type of consulting business. In all matters of professionalism, I'd like to present myself honestly while conveying the message that I do know what I'm talking about.
I've got more questions, and I'll be checking this thread often. For now, however, that is all.
Thank you for your assistance in this matter. Your responses are greatly appreciated!
