I have done a fair amount of research into different ways to set up a firm and am undecided on which is the best way to go. I do not want to be a self proprietor because of the risk of exposing my personal assets to any liability. I don't intend to hire anyone so it will be a firm that consists of me. From what I can tell, an S-corp sounds reasonable, but I don't get this meeting and minutes requirement. Who do I meet with? Myself? And all the paperwork and forms I would have to fill out! An LLC sounds OK, but there also is the LLC as an S-corp option that has me confused and bewildered. I contacted the local SBDC and have set up a meeting , but have to wait a month. I am not sure I want to wait that long. Can you help me?

We have a small custom furniture business which specializes in Murphy Beds. We contract the furniture construction out, then we deliver and install the Murphy Beds and cabinetry. There is some liability with these beds so I want to make sure our business is set up correctly in an effort to protect our personal assets. Who should be listed as the "owners" of our fictitious name? Our fictitious name is just the name of our business excluding the LLC part of our business name. Currently myself, my wife and the LLC are listed as the owners. Should we remove our names as the owners and make the LLc the only owner? Thanks so much!

I understand I can start a business (an LLC) in my own right as a non-resident alien. 1) Is an LLC my only option as a non-resident alien? 2) My L1-Visa is initially valid for 3 years. If I left my existing company would I be able to live and work for the newly created business? (I realize I may need a different forum for this one). Thanks for your input, greatly appreciated.

I am currently a full time student with no real source of income. I graduate in a year and I have what I believe to be a good business idea and I know me and my partners have what it takes to make it work. We have a bit to go before we try to fund the company but we are getting close. I'm worried my age and experience will hurt my chances, so I have to believe it will take a lot of effort to compete with established businesses. But say my idea will work, what should I do to overcome any disadvantages my age will cause?

It has been daunting as the costs to design a site are pretty steep. As a recent college graduate I do not have much to offer for collateral on a loan and I am skeptical about the idea of equity investing. I have come up with an idea and wanted to get feedback on what you all thought. In exchange for development of my site I would offer a percentage of the total revenue for the first year after launch(which is projected to be upwards of $150k+ based on the market), up to a specified max. The business that I plan on starting can be very lucrative depending on the site quality, which is why I need a great designer. Feedback on how to go about implementing this strategy would be very helpful, also if you know a great web developer that may be interested in such a deal I would greatly appreciate you passing the info along.
