I am almost legally a small business owner. I just need to finish up the expensive notices and fees and all sorts of b.s. that I didn’t realize I had to do. I see why people say you should have X amount of money saved before you dive into it. Well, I didn’t. I’m in the middle of this.
Another expense will be clothes. I do have clothes, praise be to the Lord, that because I’ve lost 30+ pounds. I had to wear a dress to drop off cards and am wearing slacks with a chartreuse shirt because I have to deal with some government officials today. I haven’t had to dress up for work since the 20th century. Most of the time I hang in lounge pants, though. Who wants to get glitter on your best rags?
Pay Pal surprised me, too. I have to pay $.30 a transaction plus 3%. It takes four days for money to transfer from that account to my business account. Because of this waiting period, I have to make two trips down-town because I won’t have access to that cash until next week. I’m already eleven days over due when it comes to the fictitious name filing.
I can be a jump in with both feet kind of person. I also can be studious and measured. In this endeavor I am more the first rather than the last.
I’ll keep you up to date.
