I'm about to do all the state and government aspects of starting my cafe, and it's daunting. I'm forming a LLC. Legalzoom.com seems to be the perfect solution. They'll do all the name searching and paper gathering and whatnot. The hardest part about starting my own business right now is determining what forms I need. What insurances are mandatory? What does the IRS need? The state? It's mindboggling. I did some research last night on the prices of various forms I can submit, and this could either cost me a hundred or two, or thousands. They certainly don't make it easy. No information is easy to find, and none of it is particularly well explained, if at all. How did you fellow entrepreneurs go about this stage of the game? Did you hire a lawyer? Did you go it alone? Anyone use Legalzoom? Advice is greatly appreciated. I feel like a fish out of water at this point. I know how to apply for loans, and I know how to make coffee, but the papers I'm getting into now are so vital legally, I can't afford to misstep. God forbid I land in prison because I submitted form 1357A instead of 1020D.
