I am am guessing that means: I have a business license with a TAX ID number so I can pay taxes yay! I don't know what Bonded means Insured for liability and theft. Found these guys ( http://www.tcpinsurance.com/ ) Am I on the right track? Do you guys think it is a smart choice to get these things taken care of before I try tackling weddings as the lead photog? Also: I was wondering if anyone could give some input as to be an LLC or a sole proprietor. I understand that an LLC is its own entity so I was wondering how I would go about transferring ownership of my current equipment from me to the new LLC. If I chose to take that route. Further more as far as computers go, if I were an LLC and those computers owned under the LLC would I be able to use them for personal use? i.e laptop for class and what not. And finally Could anyone make an EDU about how to make a hard cover wedding book or the steps I need to do to go about it. I have no clue how to do it. Do I just send my photos to a book making site and they design it and what not, I really don't know how it works. I found some sites but it was just confusing.
