If you’ve ever dreamed of being your own boss, you may have considered starting your own business. When you thought about your company, did you consider all of the steps necessary to get your business up and running? A lot of planning is required in order to start a successful, profitable business. This guide explains the many facets to starting your own business.
Create a business plan. This will lay the groundwork for your company, and allow you to keep track of company progress. Start a business plan by outlining the major goals you wish to accomplish. Establish what good or service your company will provide, and create a mission statement. This will allow you to form core company values, business policies, and eventually, a brand. Your business plan should also define:
Your finances should break down all of the supplies your business requires to run each month, and how much your business needs to bring in to cover those costs and turn a profit.
Set a legal structure. A major element of your business plan will contain the legal structure of your business. The form of business you choose will determine what income tax form you’ll need to fill out. This will ensure your business is legal, as well as help protect the profits of the business and your livelihood.
The most common types of businesses are sole proprietorships, partnerships, LLCs, and corporations.
Funding and financing your business. Once you’ve established a business plan and pooled enough money to get your business off the ground, consider all of the supplies your businesses is going to need to run efficiently. Determine how much money is needed to get your business started with the essentials, like desks, printers, computers, and an office space. If your business requires equipment to produce your product or provide your service, you’ll need to finance this machinery. Financing companies like Liberty Financial Group provide leasing on expensive equipment, allowing you to start your business sooner and at a lesser cost.
Choose a location. You should ask yourself a few questions to determine the location of your business:
Taking these questions into consideration will help to ensure you choose a space that will be functional and beneficial to your business in the long run.
Name your business. Choosing a name for your business will help you to build your brand. Ultimately, your business name should say what your company does and evoke a sense of your brand. The name you choose should appeal to you and the type of clientele you wish to attract. Avoid choosing a name that is long, confusing, or misleading to customers.
Obtain licenses, permits, and tax identification. Businesses must file certain taxes with the federal government, but they also have to pay state and local taxes. First, file for your Federal Tax Identification Number, or the EIN mentioned previously. Each state has their own tax laws for businesses, so check your states tax obligations to ensure you file the right forms, such as income tax, employment tax, and state and territory tax.
Hire employees. Prior to hiring people to work for your company, there are several forms you’ll need to fill out and file. First, you’ll need to obtain an employment identification number (EIN). This will be used to report tax information to the IRS. When you file, be sure to keep records of the taxes you are withholding, including Federal Income Tax, Federal Wage Tax, and State Tax. The next step in hiring an employee is to prove their eligibility to work in your state. Then, establish workers’ compensation insurance for your employees, and make your new hire aware of company policies and their rights and responsibilities under labor laws. Once you’ve offered a position to a new employee, register them with your state’s new hire reporting program, and file your new tax forms. Businesses that pay wages need to file the Employer’s Quarterly Federal Tax Return.
Market your business. Once you have established your business in the eyes of the government and hired employees, you’ll need to get the word out about your business. Advertisements on the internet, in newspapers and local publications, and word of mouth are great ways to attract customers to your business. Use mediums and strategies that will appeal to the customer base you want your business to attract.
Starting a business is quite an undertaking, but with the right action steps in place, you can be your own boss and create a successful company you can call your own.
Liberty Financial Group, Inc. provides direct financing and leasing for all types of new and used essential commercial equipment, specializes in the transportation industry (trucks and trailers) and the construction industry (yellow iron).

A successful dry cleaning business can certainly be a satisfying and financially rewarding small business. It is a relatively recession-proof business that can provide you with additional income through services such as dry cleaning delivery, alterations and clothing repair.
A well-run dry cleaning business can provide predicable, and steady income; however, the decision to devote oneself to this undertaking should not be taken lightly. Machinery alone can cost about $150,000, and other up front expenses such as a storefront and other necessary business equipment including furniture and supplies can add up to a significant start-up investment.
The following is a checklist of considerations to make when starting a dry cleaning business:

Commercial equipment financing, admittedly, is not the topic of conversation most likely to elicit the largest or most excited conversation at your next dinner party. Old friends don’t get together over coffee to reminisce about the good old days of commercial truck leasing. The next pop song devoted to the professionalism of our financing and leasing account managers will be, well, the first.
But here at Liberty Financial Group, Inc., providing direct financing and leasing for all types of new and used essential commercial equipment is all we can talk about.
We understand that providing the necessary funds to help our customers succeed by adding the greatest value for every equipment dollar, can literally change business — and subsequently change lives. We think that’s pretty cool and worthy of conversation.
We pride ourselves on our ability to customize a financial solution for our partners and business clients. As a direct lender and national syndication originator, Liberty Financial Group, Inc. can offer many different types of leasing and financing programs that accommodate the unique needs of our customers. Unlike our competition, we can be flexible and creative, offering nontraditional structures and special programs when appropriate.
We may not be the subject matter of the next Hollywood Blockbuster, and we’re fine with that. We believe that building long-lasting relationships with our business partners, making time to truly understand our customer’s business and providing real financial solutions is all the recognition we need.
Although a theme song would be nice.
