    Starting a business

    I am considering starting up a business (totally unrelated to web design/development) and was wondering if any fellow SitePointers knew of any good websites/business resources which I could tap into and learn from.

    Incorporation

    Hi Saltire,

    Nice to see you want to start a business, I love enterpeuners.

    When I wanted to incorporate my business and/or learn more about the different kind of corporations I couldnt find any better site than CorpAmerica.com

    Besides providing superior services, they have helpful explanations of things that I understood which was good. I'd be happy to help in any step of the way.

    Best of luck.

    Question

    What type of business are you starting? That might help.

    Saltire, the most important thing is the country that you are in as it varies greatly form country to country! For example, in the States you could set up a corporation but in the UK it would have to be a limited company and there are very defined lists of dos and donts for setting up a company.

    American Express has a great site on small business information... I don't know exactly where it is in their site but I'm sure you can find it from www.americanexpress.com

    It was invaluable to us when starting our business, we learned how to create business plans, get SBA loans, etc.

    Howdy!

    I ran across a site called www.smallbusiness.com.
    They have an area where you can ask for advice from fellow users. Much different setup than a straight bulletin board, but I have seen some good topics in there for small businesses.

    GOOD LUCK!!

    considering you are in Australia, try www.business.gov.au this is a really good site, considering it is a .gov its quite surprising... even visually stimulating wich is a plus
