Become an Official Business

The easiest and simplest way to become an official business is to register it as a d.b.a. (doing business as).

Becoming an official business is a very necessary step. It establishes legitimacy, and something to be taken seriously.

Quick question: a parent asks “Who should I write the check out to?” The worst answer you can give is “Write the check out to me.” You want to say, “Write the check out to my business.”

So, be sure to register your business as a d.b.a.
