Starting a Business

The richest people in our society tend to be people who have started their own businesses. Starting a business can be risky, depending on how much money you invest in it to start with, but sometimes the risk can pay off greatly. If you’re ambitious and want to try this method of earning money and becoming self-sufficient, you should certainly go for it.

Here are a few basic things you should know before getting started:

  • You need to have your business listed with the state. This process is called incorporation; your business must be incorporated. Incorporation costs money, but the fee varies from state to state. In some states it’s quite low, and in others it’s hundreds of dollars.
  • Most products and services businesses sell will cost money to make or prepare for. For instance, if you want to start a business that sells amazing clothing designed and made by you, you’re going to be spending a lot on fabric, sewing materials, and so on before you make any money.
  • If you’re under eighteen, you will need an adult to file some of the paperwork for you.
