one who organizes, manages, and assumes the risks of a business or enterprise — Merriam-Webster
If you are here, we will presume that you at least have some entrepreneurial inklings. Starting a business is fun. It is also hard work, and can be terribly complicated. This blog is meant as a resource for anyone who is self-employed or running a business. The goal for this stuff is to be general purpose, easily digestible, and applicable to a wide range of industries. Most of it should be equally relevant in any industry—whether you are a musician, a real estate broker, an SQL wizard, or a vintner. We will try and touch on some fun niche topics too though.
There is little more quintessential to the American Dream than being in business for yourself, yet the regulatory cost of being in business is disproportionately felt by small business owners. It is incumbent on you to become a Jack of All Trades, to know what problems to look out for, and pay the price when you run into trouble. The more general legal information you absorb, the more sustainable your decisions will be. The less liabilities you incur, the more profitable you will be, and that’s the name of the game.
