    New small business starting point
    I am currently in the planning stages of starting a small business. I know what service we will provide, as well as the clientele that will desire them. I just need to know how to get it started. How can I get this idea off the ground? A rough script would be very helpful.

    Try score.org and sba.gov. Both are great resources for startups.

    Chris, here is your (very) rough script as requested
    The following is for a sole proprietorship. Setting up partnerships and corporations are much more complicated

    Set up a free business account
    Find an accountant, or use software to immediately start creating your statements. The money deposited in the first step is your first entry for "Owners Equity"
    Go to city hall and get a business license
    If you have a fictitious name for your business register it at the local courthouse
    Shop for a lawyer if you have any legal concerns
    Look up if any domain names you want to use are already taken and grab the closest one you can
    Plan to spread the word
    Contact me if you want help getting the word out.:)
