Starting Your Own Business In Miami
| Intro

Have you dreamed of starting your own business? If so, it can be a wonderful source of income and satisfaction. If you have self-discipline, perseverence, enjoy being your own boss and can live with a certain degree of risk and uncertainty, the life of an entrepreneur may be the life for you.

Starting a business will be as simple or as complex as the type of business you choose. For instance, "putting out a shingle" as a home-based bookkeeper will probably take less much time and planning than opening a produce market or a manufacturing plant. No matter what business you choose, however, it will require a good degree of planning, strategy and foresight to succeed.

This guide is designed to help you choose the type of business that is most suited to your talents and interests. It offers the basics about choosing the appropriate legal structure for your business, locating funding sources to start up your business, writing a business plan, setting up a bookkeeping method, paying income and employment taxes, obtaining local and state permits, leasing and labor laws, and more. In addition this guide contains a number of links to excellent business planning resources, notably the Small Business Administration website. Good luck and happy browsing!
