Make sure you’re ready
Is the timing right for you to start your business? Use the Readiness Assessment Guide from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) to find out if you’re on the right track.
Write a business plan
Every great business begins with a plan. And while that plan will evolve over time, this initial document will serve as your guide over the next 3-5 years.
Choose a business structure
Each business structure has specific legal and tax requirements that you should consider. Use the information from the SBA to research business structures before you decide.
