I used to write stories for a business newspaper about small businesses, so I’ve got a bit of advice! First of all, build a portfolio using photos from events you’ve created. You’ll also want to create a website so people can find you.

Before you do that, though, I would go to the nsba.com and get some advice from your local chapter. Only part of a business is actually providing a service. You’re going to have to deal with a lot of taxes and pitfalls that you probably won’t see coming unless you’ve done your research. Most small businesses don’t start turning a profit until a couple years into it, but since your planning biz won’t require too much overhead, you probably won’t deal with a huge loss the first year like most. Good luck!

I would find your local small business coop in your area.  They are usually retired execs that volunteer to help guide you throught the process and help you put your business plan together.  They have help quit a few friends of mine get their businesses started off in the right directions.

call a corporate attorney…..probably a sole proprietor…and they can help you set up your business and give you practical suggestions on how to get started.
