Business Readiness and Foundation 101

If you have a dream to be a successful business owner, one of the things you can do is prepare yourself for the success that you desire. Preparation means business readiness, establishing a solid business foundation, having a separate business bank account, having your EIN, filing your LLC, keeping up with annual fees, obtaining insurance and having your own space on the internet. Being a successful entrepreneur is not an easy fit. You have to wear many hats and play different roles in your business. However, whether that is client preparations, bookkeeping, content creation, getting out in front of new customers, or increasing your visibility and production, preparedness and business readiness will help you set the foundation for your business success.
