How to File an LLC for Teacher Business the Right Way
When I first started my blog and my Teachers Pay Teachers shop, all I knew for sure was that I wanted to help other teachers by providing tips & resources to help them be more effective classroom teachers. But, I had absolutely NO idea what I was doing as a business owner. So I found others at a similar point in their own businesses and observed what they were doing & the conversations they were having. I noticed a lot of conversations about filing for LLCs.In all honesty, I didn't even know what the acronym meant, but I knew it was something legal and therefore meant expensive. All I could think about was the fact that I was working sooooooo hard for what little bit of money I was making and I certainly didn't want to spend it all working with an attorney...just so that I could add a fancy LLC to the end of my business name.It wasn't until I met Andrea that I learned why forming a Limited Liability Corporation was vital for my business (and how it protected my family) and how being a "small business" didn't release me from needing to know the important legal stuff.So today, Andrea is answering all of the questions you might have about forming an LLC for teacher business owners, applying for a business license, and the other legal things you didn't know you needed to know!
