  • It's definitely a good idea. I would talk to a lawyer with a background in business law before you do anything. Keep in mind, laws vary state to state and if you make more than $10,000 annually you need to file taxes.

  • I know lots of sling makers and I doubt they all have insurance. We have several on the cafemom street team feel free to join and ask any questions there but remember these type of questions are best left to legal experts :) Your best bet may be getting an LLC license :)
