    I'm opening an online business and could use some advice?

    I am opening an online business and I'm trying to figure out what legal things I need to handle. Do I need permits or business licenses? Do I need to trademark my company name? What forms do I need to complete? I'm pretty confused because all the research that I've done, I've only seen forms for physical stores, not online businesses. I live in North Carolina and I'm not sure what laws they have in regards to online businesses. I need some kind of insight!!

    I suggest you check out this video:


    It gives you the basics on what you need, I think.

    Hope this helps!

    Also, check with the small business administration.  They have lots of information on small businesses and loans.  Your state government will have info on any licensing requirements.  You should register your business name.

    You could trademark your company name but it is expensive. I'd reach out to your local chamber of commerce and SCORE.org to look for a mentor. Surround yourself with talented people. Best of luck!
