Paying yourself is still important!

An important tip is to ensure you get paid.  It is easy to skip a check to yourself, but you will find that you are going to be working a lot more now that you are an accountant, janitor, secretary and president.  You will have to wear many hats and it’s important you pay yourself for your efforts.

Additional tips:

– Set aside a “Self Employment Tax” quarterly and pay your estimate tax payments no matter what
– Ensure the legal structure of the business is set up properly
– Set aside 10% of your gross revenue for marketing
– Build a quality website and social media marketing plan. Don’t skimp on this!
