The best routes to take are to research the process of starting a business as well as the industry you’re interested in. I recommend checking out the SBA, Entrepreneur, The Start Up Journal & Nolo. All 4 are great informational resources for the new/ small business owner. I posted links for you in the source box. Associations may be a good avenue to explore. These organizations will address many of the thoughts, questions and concerns you’ll inevitably have as well as many you haven’t anticipated yet. See the source box for some relevant links. Research, research, research â€“ this cannot be stressed enough. Read as much as you can about the industry. Here are some book titles that are relevant: Tax Preparation Specific: * Bookkeeping & Tax Preparation: Start & Build a Prosperous Bookkeeping, Tax, & Financial Services Business by Gordon P. Lewis * Starting and Building Your Own Accounting Business, Third Edition by Jack Fox * Getting Started in Tax Consulting by Gary W. Carter * Start & Run a Bookkeeping Business by Angie Mohr Georgia Specific: * How To Start A Business In Georgia (Legal Survival Guides) by Charles T. Robertson, Mark Warda * How to Form a Corporation Llc or Partnership in Georgia by W. Dean Brown There are plenty of free informational resources out there.
