  • Tuesday, August 20th Where to Start: Registering Your New Business: How do I register my new business? How do I get an EIN? How do I write an operating agreement? How do I form a legal entity? There’s a lot of bureaucracy and forms to navigate when starting a new business. If you’re lost in the weeds or don’t know where to start, this workshop is for you! This deep-dive workshop will take you through the steps of legal formation and IRS compliance for your new business entity. This webinar begins at 6:00 PM.

  • Tuesday, August 27th How to Grow: Hiring Your First Employee(s): Is it time to start delegating so you can focus on growing your business? Are you ready to hire someone but unsure of the “back office” changes to your business? Your first hire, no matter the job description, is a key employee of your business. Our panel of experts will help you understand the legal, financial, and administrative requirements for employers. We’ll talk independent contractor vs. employee. We’ll talk about employment taxes, insurance, benefits, and best practices for recruiting a key employee. We'll also share a helpful checklist so you have a road map of your next steps.
