Key Takeaways

  1. Open separate business bank accounts. This helps with budgeting and making sure your business is profitable, but it's also absolutely necessary if you have an LLC. Without a separate business bank account, a court could decide your LLC never existed.
  2. Do your research on local permits and licenses you may need to run your business. Most online business owners won't need any, but it's important to double-check your local requirements to make sure.
  3. Put your website policies in place! Without the right website policies on your website (or landing page, sales page, opt-in page, etc.) you could face fines or get your website shut down.
