Wealthmas List, Gift 4: Do I Need a Registered Agent For My New Business?

I remember when I started my business ... I was happy and my little independent tail self wanted my name on EVERYTHING!

Just like I had graduated from college and was issued a degree, I had this urgent need to fulfill for my name to be on the business, too!

But, this isn't necessarily the answer when you are building a legitimate business that's meant to outlast your current last name ...

Read that again!

So before you consider putting your name on public documentation that generates income, consider answering these questions beforehand!

  1. What is your exit strategy for your business?

  2. Does the name of your business stand the test of time to outlive you?

These two questions lead to one overarching principle: The business has to be scalable to last multi-generationally.

And part of that plan to check the box for a multi-generational plan is business structure within your government documentation.

I promise, we will get to strategies to scale your business in the future, but the instructions in this gift is to help you understand how to keep your name off of your legal documentation.
