  1. Hi sir Iam try to have own business small business like cleaning mowing things like that so I want to know how to start or what I need to have permit from government to do so

    • Hi Thamir, you can operate as a Sole Proprietorship or an LLC. Those are the most common for small business owners. We’ve written about the pros and cons here: LLC vs Sole Proprietorship. Once you decide on that we recommend calling your city/town and checking on licensing requirements for mowing and cleaning. If you decide to form an LLC, it would be the LLC that gets the license or permit, and not you. Hope that helps.
