Have you been running your business as a sole proprietor thus far?

What's made you think of going to an LLC?

Basically in a nutshell you can have a sole prop LLC. That is how mine is setup.

Well even if your customers pay you, that is a real business. DBA only means 'doing business as.' There is no reason you can't do business as yourself. That is how plenty of people get started. I don't think there are any laws that force you to register a business name when you are using your own name.

Would you want to change your business name to something else? What's your view?

Hi MJK,

It's good to see you thinking these things through. Registering under an LLC would be a good idea if you are concerned about protecting your assests.

Are you planning on registering it yourself or having an accountant do it?
