How to Start a Business?

Thinking about starting a business?

For some people, starting a business is a dream they've had for a long time, while others end up starting a business by accident. Basically, if you're making money from selling goods, digital products, or services, you have a business.

That's when most people ask, now what?

Once you get used to the fact that you have a business, you'll probably start to wonder (or worry) about things like business registration, taxes, and marketing. And while all of these are important topics for a business owner to consider, it can be overwhelming to try to focus on all of them at the same time.

That's why it can be helpful to have someone who has been there walk you through the basics steps of setting up your business. In fact, that's the reason I created a FREE resource called The Small Business Start Up Checklist--to help you know what you need to do one step at a time.

The Joys and Challenges of Starting a Business

When I started my first online business way back in 2012, there was a lot I didn't know. However, the one thing I did know was how to do my small business bookkeeping and taxes. Armed with an accounting degree and CPA license, I wasn't worried a bit about crunching the numbers for my business.

My understanding of finances provided a great business foundation. And over the following years, I learned about many other aspects of business, from writing e-books to growing a list of email subscribers. I also tried different things in my business until I found things that I really enjoyed.

One of my favorite things I do in my business is help other business owners learn how to do their own bookkeeping. I have a YouTube channel with videos that show you how to use QuickBooks Online to manage your small business bookkeeping.
