A few years ago, I was a young entrepreneur. I was tired of working for people and wanted to do something I really enjoyed: party planning. So, I opened my own corporation, started a website, and followed all the motions a typical new business owner would. Within a few weeks, I started making some great sales since I carried products for weddings, baptisms, and holidays. It was a lot of work, but I was hoping it would pay off one day. Within two years, I landed my first teaching job and I just didn’t have enough time to run an online business AND write lesson plans, grade papers, and take care of my home. I closed my site, ended the corporation, and felt a little bitterness when I let it go. It was something I did for myself, but I had to give it up for better opportunities for my family.
When starting a new corporation, there are fees involved that many aspiring entrepreneurs don’t foresee. If you are just starting up, finding the funds can be difficult to incorporate. eMinutes is on a mission to provide FREE services to new businesses. They are paying the filing fees for 500 first time entrepreneurs. If the corporation has already been formed, eMinutes lawyers will review the paperwork and determine if the company needs to be restructured to run smoother. This is great for new businesses that aren’t sure how to go about adding more revenue and making more sales. What’s even better is that these services are provided at no charge! Check out this video from Jason Calacanis from This Week in Startups.
