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.
