Event Overview

About the session:

Most people think the first thing they need to do is set up their business as an LLC or S-Corp. Not so. In fact, that’s not even one of the first three steps. Come to this workshop and learn what you need to do to get your business off the ground. Get answers to your questions and address your concerns.

  • "What do I need to do to set up my business?"
  • "Do I need a website?"
  • "How do I figure out what to charge?"
  • "What about quarterly taxes?"
  • "How do I get my first project?"
  • "A potential client has asked me for a proposal. What does that look like?"
  • "The client said yes. Do I need a contract? How do I do that?"
  • "Do I need business insurance?"
  • "There’s so much to do. I don’t know where to start!"

After taking this class, you’ll know exactly what to do to move forward.

Format:

Interactive web workshop with a maximum of ten participants. Be prepared to participate by voice, not using the chat functionality. (Note: You won’t need your web cam for this session.)
