Hey guys, So I've been into internet marketing and such since I was in the 8th grade. I'm 19 now, and have learned tons, tons, tons of stuff. Point is, I want to bank on my knowledge. I live in a big city, have a good amount of knowledge about SEO, and am great at talking to people (comes in handy to get clients). So it will be just me, a sole proprietorship. Now, the questions begin: 1) Should I register a sole proprietorship (I live in California)? Or could I simply start, see how things go, and always do that later? What would be the advantages of registering as a business from the get go? 2) How much it could cost to get a nice website set up for my "company", and to get some business cards? Anything else you recommend I spend a little money on? Where do you recommend I look to have my site designed? Freelancer dot com? 3) Any other advice for me? I'm hoping for the best (success), but ready for the worst (failure). I mean, lots of successful businessmen have failed their first and second businesses. Nonetheless, I'd much rather minimize my risk of failure, hopefully through some advice from my fellow BH'ers who have taken similar ventures on. Thanks in advance everyone!
