Heck, lets chat.
 
Have you read about our Corporate Guides difference? The difference starts with you: the customer is always number one, no matter what. There is something to be said about a business that makes you the number one priority, always:

Generations of authors have written wisely about how to solve the puzzle of motivating ourselves to overcome the obstacles to success.

Do you suffer from any of these fears? Some fear all of the paper work and red tape, while some fear being too old to start a business. There's an endless list of "what-if's" when it comes to getting things going. What was/is your "what-if"?

Anyone can overcome these fears.
These fears are real for everyone -- but anyone can overcome them.

MUST-haves for starting your business...starting with those formation documents:
 
If you need help starting your small business, one of the very first places you will need to start is simply right here. You will need to
A. Obtain formation documents for the type of business you wish to start (LLC, corporation, nonprofit, etc.)
B. You will need to designate a registered agent for your business... this goes directly on your business' formation documents!

Keep in mind that this person, your registered agent, is responsible for handling all of the mail and extremely important and sensitive documents belonging to your business. They will also need to maintain a street address int he state where you do business (the more states you do business in, the more difficult this can become). They will also need to maintain regular business hours M-F, 9-5.

Who can you trust?

Do you run your small business from home? What do you love (and hate) about it?

Why do people want you?
 
Why do people hire you or your company? It can be a good exercise for your business to sit down and make a list, then fill in any holes in that list. Why should people hire you? What makes you better than the competition? As business owners, this is what we should be thinking about in order to grow.

Story
Tagline
Chief legal strategy officer and blogger of most things business, registered agent, nonprofit, and more
Introduction
I spent the early years of my life working at a locally owned sawmill and enjoyed living in the woods. My life experiences have crafted a unique real world perspective to the law and real world industries. The logging industry was effectively shut down from the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA); the mill closed, and the town basically died. NAFTA reinvented my career by paying for me to go to law school.

As the chief legal strategy officer, my role at Northwest guides our company and our clients through the vast bureaucracy we all deal with when running a business. I'm interested in helping people start and run successful businesses. I'm always learning and sharing. I have a special interest in nonprofits as well as registered agent services--have any questions? Ask away. 

I've recently begun authoring a blog housed on Northwest Registered Agent that covers a variety of topics concerning LLCs, incorporation, registered agents and registered agent services, nonprofits, and entrepreneurship. It's all about solid, quality information and absolutely no filler:
