Hey guys and gals... I've been toying around with the idea of starting my own bid-ness for a while now, and have recently decided to get the ball rolling. However, being the first in my family to branch out like this, I'm really not sure where to look, who to talk to, and what to do. Any of you fine folks have any insight or suggestions regarding this venture of mine. As a quick background, it will be a consulting company for building code compliance. I've looked around but for every answer I get, another one pops up to contradict the previous one. I've run the gambit of hearing things like, "its simple enough to be a sole proprietorship", to "ohh man, there's no other options than structuring it as an LLC."....etc.. I'm all ears to anyone with any helpful suggestions/opinions. Thanks in advance!
