A Little Nudge, LLC

Hi, my name is Erica Ettin, and I founded the business A Little Nudge where I help people with all aspects of online dating. How did the SBA help me? Even though I have an M.B.A., they don't always teach you all of the actual steps you need to know to start a business. When I first started my business, I was a bit unsure of what steps to take. I actually went on the SBA web site and found the 10 steps to starting a business. Of course, a business plan was included in there and I used the template that they offered to help me write a business plan. I also wasn't sure what form of business. Should I be a sole proprietor? Or should I be an LLC? There was a great explanation on the SBA web site as to how to decide which type of business to be. I don't know that I would have planned the business the way I did without the SBA web site. Why I love being a small business owner, that's easy. I set my own schedule. I love what I do. I'm very passionate about helping people with online dating. I write their profiles. I help them choose their pictures. I even set them up on dates. It's extremely rewarding, especially living in Washington, D.C. when so many people are busy with their lives, and their jobs. I feel like if I can make one small change, or if I can help one person find love, then everything's worth it. Thank you so much.
