This section of quiltjazz.com is designed for the New Business owner or anyone thinking of starting a new business.  I have included here many valuable resources.  Take the time to scroll through the sites and read the articles.  Each topic is extremely helpful and provides valuable information!

The place to start is http://www.irs.gov/businesses/small/article/0,,id=99336,00.html.  Here, not only will you find information for the legal aspect of starting a business, but you'll also find many informative reports and tools.  This is, without a doubt, the first stop on your journey to a new business.  A few of the topics:

  • Small Business Videos
  • Is It A Business or A Hobby
  • Selecting A Business Structure
  • Checklist For Starting A Business
  • Online Classroom

Obviously, you'll also be able to get all the tax information relating to businesses.  You'll learn how to get an Employer Identification Number, known as an EIN.  One of the most critical aspects of a business is to make sure you are following IRS guidelines and filing your taxes on time.  Many businesses fail because they don't track and file their taxes!  I highly recommend you start your business venture here!  http://www.irs.gov/businesses/small/article/0,,id=99336,00.html

When it comes to operating a business, www.sba.gov has proven to be the source.  SBA provides programs and services to help you start, grow and succeed!  Resource topics include:

  • Manage Your Business from Start to Finish
  • Expand Your Business with Programs and Services
  • Increase Your Business and Knowledge
  • Free Online Training
  • Marketing

You'll also learn how SBA's loan guarantee programs can assist your business.  New and Cool:  they've just added an Assessment Tool for starting a new business which will help you determine if you're ready.  Each month, SBA provides an Online Business Chat, in which you can participate in Q&A discussions with experts on a variety of small business topics.   www.sba.gov

One of the most helpful sites that I have used is www.score.org.  SCORE provides entrepreneurs with free and confidential business advice from successful business advisors.  SCORE is a team of volunteers who are successful entrepreneurs and executives that love business and want to share their knowledge with you, so you can succeed too.  SCORE is a non-profit group of 10,500 volunteers across the country who have been in your shoes.  Take advantage of their expertise through:

  • Online Counseling
  • Face-to-Face Counseling
  • Online Workshops
  • Numerous Forms and Business Tools

The Forms area has been the most useful for me.  In this section, you'll find forms for:  Creating a Business Plan, Profit and Loss Statements, Cash Flow Form, Start-Up Expenses, and so much more!  SCORE volunteers are your go-to mentors!  Don't be afraid to ask.   www.score.org
