Publisher's Summary

It is easy to make mistakes when you are creating or reorganizing your business.

The path to true wealth is having your own business. But there are so many laws to navigate and options for the legal organization of your business that it can seem overwhelming. Lawyers, accountants, and business advisors can be expensive, but so can picking the wrong kind of structure or forgetting to file the right documents. What you need is the knowledge to get it done right without breaking the bank.

It doesn’t have to be complicated.

This guide makes it fast and easy to form your LLC and get your business started on the right foot. The aim of this guide is action. It gives you, the business owner, the knowledge you need to get your LLC up and running without making costly mistakes in the process, or being so paralyzed by the overwhelming nature of organizing your company that you keep putting it off.

Avail yourself of the many advantages an LLC offers.

The Limited Liability Company is a uniquely American invention. It solves the “double taxation” problem inherent in corporate structures by functioning as a “pass-through” entity for tax purposes. At the same time, it still provides what is often cited as the most desirable feature of a corporate structure by limiting your liability to the assets of the company and keeping your personal assets safe.

Learn the secrets so many wealthy and successful business owners already know.

This easy guide walks you through everything you need to know including:

  • Limited Liability Company Types
  • Forming a Strategic Alliance
  • Setting Management Powers
  • Reporting Taxes as an LLC
  • Creating and Dissolving a Limited Liability Company
  • Raising Capital for Your Limited Liability Company
  • Owning Personal Assets
  • Informally Borrowing from Family and Friends
  • Incorporating Other Members into Your LLC
  • And much more

This book definitely opened my eyes to the pros and cons of starting a Limited Liability company, and I've actually decided to hold off on creating an LLC now until I get revenue coming in on a higher level. This decision is based on the information provided in this book.

Good book content, but the narration is...

The Good:
The actual content in this book is pretty good. It covers a lot of really important topics for starting an LLC, and I feel like I have a much better understanding about how that all works, and what to look out for now.
The Bad:
I found the narration irritating and somewhat distracting. The narrator used a unique phrasing style which deterred from the delivery of the content. If I were to describe his narration style, I'd say it was something like a poor mix of Garrison Keillor from Prairie Home Companion and Count Dracula from Sesame Street.
Bottom Line:
If you can get past the distracting narration, this book still presents a lot of good information specific to starting an LLC. However, I found another book, "Starting a Business QuickStart Guide" by Ken Colwell PhD MBA which is superior in overall content and FAR superior in narration delivery. If I had to pick one book as a person trying to learn more about starting my own business, I'd choose, "Starting a Business QuickStart Guide" without hesitation.

Great Information for Beginners

This is a great book if you are looking for the basic information to start an LLC. Most of the info can probably be found online, but it is nice to have it all in one book .
