Is there a checklist for starting a business? What is required for a home based business? I am teaching adults for a city run park and recreation department.  I have just been informed do to new federal regulation, my status has to change from a contractual employee to independent contractor.

This is not as daunting as it seems at first.

You will basically be becoming a "Small Business" and there are a lot of resources open to you to learn the ins and outs.

Night Schools often have basic small business classes, your library will have all the books on it, your Better Business Bureau probably has hand outs and classes. Take advantage of all this low cost, accurate and geared for your state advice.

Often we artists are scared of paperwork, taxes and financial planning ... but you will find it simple if you take it a step at a time.
