  • Well, it really depends on the idea... If you have an idea with a product that is going to be a big difference in steps than a business with a service... I would need some more information before giving any real advice here...

  • OP- I want to start a company for event babysitting. For weddings and things.

  • Well go to your states website and look into the requirements and licensing required for your state for starting a child care business. You'd also have to choose a buziness name and get a DBA and possibly a Tax ID number and an EIN number. And some states have other requirements as well for starting a business

  • In addition to going to the state like Mom2Jack04 mentioned, you need to decide where you are going to have this business. Most towns have zoning laws on where you are allowed to open a business and you may need to register or get a permit if you are allowed.

  • All I wanted was to Stay at home and raise my Own Children...I was
    totally shocked at all the scams on the Internet that were targeting
    people like me.

    I spent months looking, and did pay some "fees" to find out

    about legitimate work from home. None of them were able to offer
    anything more than a few surveys for pay, crafts to assemble, or
    mystery shopping (all of which were nothing more than some spare
    change...not an income).

    I am very excited to now Own my own Home Business.

    I am working at my own pace and I have met and Teamed up with some
    Awesome Mothers and others...that have the same Goals as I DO!

    I would love to share this opportunity with you. Just visit my
    website, and I will contact you with the details.
