My Start-up Process – Part I


I composed a list of related tasks I have accomplished over the past few months (not necessarily in order). These are items I felt that I had to get out of the way before moving on to the next steps. Whether or not I took the best approach to some of these tasks is still up in the air. 🙂  But remember, starting a business is a learning experience and mistakes will be made! (Talking to myself).

The Legal Stuff
Business License – Which is obtained though the county in which you’re business resides/conducted
DBA or Fictitious Business Name for Green and Chic and Which is obtained though the county in which you’re business resides/conducted.
Business Entity – Obtained through the Secretary of State. I chose LLC. I’m not sure if that was the approach, but its done!
Tax ID or Employer Identification Number – That was the easiest to obtain. Just one phone call to the IRS and you will get it right over the phone.
Resale License– Obtained though the State Board of Equalization.

Domain Name – It took me several weeks to come up with a name that I know I would love and one that’s not already taken. It was harder than I thought it would be.
Hosting – I use Hostway for now
Start-up website– I’m currently updating it using Joomla! 1.5 on the backend. The updated site is not live yet.

Later, I will go into other aspects of starting the business, vendors/products, marketing, research, etc.
