ATTENTION: There was a mistake made around the 3 minute mark. I failed to mention something about #2 on the Certificate of Change. If you hired a Registered Agent and used their address for your “address for forwarding of service of process“, then you’ll also want to select #2 and change the address back to your address. I apologize if this caused any issues.
