HOW TO START AN LLC

The New Business Owner's Guide to Forming Your Company

THE BEST TIME TO START YOUR BUSINESS IS NOW

Hi there. I'm Mike and I created this site after pulling my hair out trying to get my own company off the ground. I spent weeks ignoring potential clients while sorting through the ins and outs of how to start a limited liability company... and then realized that, while every state is different, it all boils down to 4 easy steps. My goal here is simple: to walk you through these steps and get you started on your journey.

1. Name your company.
2. Select your registered agent.
3. File the paperwork with the state.
4. Create and draft an operating agreement.

Sure, there's stuff like opening a bank account and registering with the IRS and local tax authorities - but I'll cover that, too. Ready to get started? Just select your state from the list below.

ABOUT HOW TO START AN LLC

I'm an entrepreneur myself. When talking to others who want to start their own business, they often get wrapped up in the nitty gritty of paperwork and forming the company. They forget that what really matters is customers, sales, and profit. That's why I created How to Start an LLC.org: a simple resource and guide so you can spend less time on forming your company, and more time on building it.

My lawyers want me to remind you that I'm not a lawyer and that I'm completely unqualified to offer legal advice. This site is meant to serve as a reference for you on your journey. If you have questions or concerns, please contact a qualified lawyer (or accountant) to help you. Also, as a general rule, never take random legal advice on the internet.
