The Best Time to Start Your Business is NOW!

Hi there.

I'm Mike, the founder of How To Start an

I started this site after pulling my hair out, trying to figure out how to get my own company off the ground. Instead of being out there, getting customers and clients, I spent weeks trying to figure out how to start a limited liability company.

My goal is simple: to walk you through the 5 easy steps and get you started on your journey.

While every state is slightly different - it only takes 4 steps to start an LLC:

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

Sure - there's stuff after that too, like opening a bank account, registered with the IRS and local tax authorities - but it's all covered, too.

Ready to get started? Just select your state below from the list!

Good Luck and Success,


P.S. My lawyers wanted to bill me for a few extra hours, so they want me to remind you that I'm not a lawyer, I'm not an accountant, I'm completely unqualified to offer legal advice, and this site is meant to serve as a reference for you on your journey. If you have concerns or questions, contact a qualified lawyer and accountant who can help you.

P.P.S As a general rule, never take random legal advice on the internet.
