First of all it is important to clarify your ideas and to understand what kind of small business you intend to open. Will it be possible to work exclusively online or would it be better to also have a physical store? Will there be employees? What name will be chosen for the small business? If you find it difficult to answer these questions, you may find it helpful to use methods, such as brainstorming , that help you to reflect more clearly on similar questions.

Once you have completed these preliminary steps, you will need to choose the appropriate legal form for your business. Typically, for a small business, options include:

a sole proprietorship, in case you manage the company yourself;
a general partnership if you use a partner;
a limited partnership , if there are several shareholders with their own assets and others with limited responsibilities, who share profits and losses;
a limited liability company , where the liability of the partners is limited to the share of capital invested by each of them.

Finally, its legal form and the realization of its own project must be collected in the business plan, a very useful document that also serves to obtain financing and to encourage potential interested parties to invest in your project.
