I don’t know why people can’t understand how much it takes to start a new business.
There are classes to take that teach you about taxes, how to approach a bank, getting a business name and registering it, and registering your company with the IRS, and department of labor.
I needed to go to the bank and find out what paperwork I needed to start my business and get a business loan. I also had to write up a five and ten year business plan, along with finding the location and making a list of employees and equipment needed. The last thing I wanted to worry about was building an HVAC website for a company that didn’t yet exist. The people who did the classes insisted a website was important so people knew there was a new HVAC company. You could put an estimated date of opening on the website, and start setting up appointments with customers. Depending on what season you were in, I could think about doing free HVAC services. I didn’t have time to worry about a HVAC website. My wife was in the HVAC business venture with me, and she started working on what was needed for the bank. About six weeks into the process, she had all the paperwork in hand and told me to make an appointment at the bank. I had the business plan and she showed me what else she had. She talked to an online web development company, and they already had an HVAC website ready for when the loan went through, and we had an estimated time for opening.
