I got my license application approved last week and now I’m itching to get started. I’m going to start off the first six months doing part-time - my day job pays too well for my wife to let me switch cold-turkey - and fortunately I have a large number of friends who happen to be real estate agents or insurance brokers.
I’m confident in my technical skills but my business acumen is lacking. I have a good name for my business in mind, but am not sure about Florida law and tax implications - as a sole proprietor, should I just register a “fictitious name”, or is there any real benefit to incorporating? I want to be able to do my own taxes, and I would like to take checks made out to the company name, and eventually get credit card processing as well.
