Ten Tips on How to Start a Small Business

Hire an attorney. There are a lot of legalities to consider.

What is in all that fine print, anyway? You need an expert to interpret it all.

All lawyers are not alike. Be sure to find one who knows business or corporate law. Find an attorney you will like working with. Ask about fees and retainers upfront. Most attorneys offer a free initial appointment to talk about their services.

More things to think about: What kind of corporation is best for your business? What are local and state regulations? Do you need to register the name of your business? Will you need contracts for employees?

Check any non-compete agreement you may have signed with a previous employer.
