This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of ZenBusiness. The opinions and text are all my own.
Instagram may have you believing that running a business is all private jets and company retreats...
But I've been running my social media shop for a decade, and can confirm: There is no shortage of unglamourous tasks to keep the payroll running (including payroll).
ZenBusiness helps me take care of the business tasks so I can focus on what I'm good at (writing punny captions, duh).
Want to start a business of your own?
Here are five first steps.
1. 𝐒𝐢𝐠𝐧 𝐮𝐩 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐙𝐞𝐧𝐁𝐮𝐬𝐢𝐧𝐞𝐬𝐬! Not only has ZenBusiness helped hundreds of thousands of people with every step mentioned below, they also have continued learning, where you can glean small business insights, and find opportunities for women-owned businesses.
𝟐. 𝐆𝐞𝐭 𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐨 𝐟𝐨𝐫𝐦𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧. What's the difference between an S-Corp and an LLC? Which is right for you and your business? Find out the answers to these Qs and more.
𝟑. 𝐎𝐩𝐞𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐛𝐨𝐨𝐤𝐬. Payroll. Invoicing. Banking and more. ZenBusiness helps you build a financially independent business… right out of the gate.
𝟒. 𝐒𝐚𝐯𝐞 𝐦𝐨𝐧𝐞𝐲 𝐨𝐧 𝐭𝐚𝐱𝐞𝐬. Having a ton of clients is awesome, but makes your taxes much more complicated than when you work for a single company. Look into your small business tax options.
𝟓. 𝐁𝐫𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐛𝐮𝐬𝐢𝐧𝐞𝐬𝐬. ZenBusiness has got that too! From registering a domain to building your website, make sure your company is findable (and then call me for social media services). ;)
Good luck, and enjoy the confidence that ZenBusiness is there for you every step of the way.
