Small Business Development Center

I had an appointment with the SBDC today, and found out some great news! I don't need a business license for my type of business. I do need to create a corporation or LLC before I can start doing events, which I already knew. However, I can promote my website and receive income from advertising on my website- all I have to do is register my business name with the state. That's only about $50! I've been holding off on promoting my website, because I didn't want to get myself in trouble. Now I know that I'm good to go. So, next month I'll register the Natural Living Resource Center name and get to work!

  1. That is exciting! That probably means I don't need one for my business either :) Did they provide you with lots of resources and ideas?

  2. There's a lot of resources on their website, and booklets and pamphlets in their office. They also have books you can check out, but I didn't this time. Mostly I was there for the free counseling session. The counselors are all business owners themselves, and the one I spoke to was very knowledgable.
