My name is Shantel Collins. I officially launched my corporation, TaLisa Designs, Inc in 2006. I spent most of 2007 doing the planning and visualizing. I currently operate two different businesses through my corporation, with a third one in the works for spring 2008. I have TaLisa Designs, which is my handmade stationary business. I have been creating stationary for 17 years. I also operate an online fragrance store, Gabriel`s Romance www.gabrielsromance.com. In the spring of this year I will launch my lingerie business Wyatt`s Brassiere`s, whew! That`s a lot I know, but I am so firm on the philosophy of having and obtaining true wealth through entrepreneurship.
I just opened my online fragrance store and I`m looking for some feedback on ways that I can improve the site. I`m not interested in making it very flashy because I feel that simplicity is best. Not very many consumers like flashy sites that take them 10 minutes just to get to the front page, but I do want my site to pop out enough to attract a variety of customers. Thanks in advance to everyone who responds.
My website is www.gabrielsromance.com
Wow!!! I can`t thank you all enough for all the advice you have offered me here. Its hard enough to start a business but starting it on your own makes it double the effort. I did some reading on Paid in Equity to get a better understanding of how it works.
I had long since decided against seeking out financial loans for my business starting out, because my personal credit is not that great and I know that with a new business the owner`s personal credit usually becomes liable with applying for financing.
Anyway thanks again ladies. I hope that I offer assistance to each of you some time in the near future.
Basically you want to be the next Napster. My advise is to research Napster`s business model, that is of course the model they constructed after going about things the legal way. Concentrat on finding out how they obtained their licenses to distribute music. Whatever you do you have to make sure that its beneficial to the music labels, from which you would obtain the necessary license for distribution.
I think the market is fairly strong enough to handle another music distributor.
I have a question that I have been trying ot get the answer to on several other websites with no luck.
I just recently started my business and I incorporated my business mainly to protect my personal assests from my business assests. Well, because I work full-time I knew going in that I had every intention of funding the start-up costs for my business myself. My question is simple the money I use to invest in my business is that deductible in anyway. I want to deposit money monthly in my business bank account from my paycheck. What are the tax implications for doing things this way if any at all.
Thanks in advance for any reply
