Successful Business Rule #1: Limit Your Liability
The fear of losing it all if your business goes south can cause more than just emotional damage. It can prevent you from taking the risks that are necessary to succeed and grow your business. That's the reason so many business owners choose to limit their personal liability by creating an LLC. By doing so you can reduce your own responsibility should something go awry while maintaining control over your business. That allows you to do what's best for your business while knowing that even if things go wrong, your individual finances won't be harmed. Stop worrying and find out how to start an LLC.
A Crucial Warning
Before starting an LLC it's important to warn against mixing your business' assets with your individual assets. As the line between your affairs and the LLC's affairs blurs, you assume more liability. You definitely don't want that. So standard precautions such as never using a personal credit card for business expenses and keeping a separate bank account for business matters are extremely important. By being careful and keeping your individual assets completely separate you can ensure that your liability stays limited.
Starting an LLC
The first step for starting an LLC is to file the articles of organization, a document containing some basic information about your LLC. It's also important to publish notifications of the formation of your new LLC. Once these steps have been completed you'll want to create an operating agreement which will detail how to proceed in the event of unforeseen circumstances. Finally, you'll also be looking to obtain an EIN number so that the LLC can have its own separate bank account.
That's a lot of steps, and starting an LLC can definitely be a daunting task. Luckily, you don't have to do it alone because we're here to help.
