Licensing the business

People have asked me numerous times if I've gotten my business license. I keep saying no because it's not going to bring in that much revenue and I don't have a seperate location for it, yadda, yadda, yadda. But the more I thought about it, the more I kind of wanted to get a tax id# and maybe secure my business name. I mean, this world is not big enough to handle two Creatividads!
So I'm diving in! As of Monday the 16th I'll be applying for a Sole Proprietorship license and securing my trade mark name. Kind of exciting! As I've researched, this license will be fairly easy because I'm not bringing in enough revenue to worry about extra taxes but it will make me more "official" in that I can participate in some Wedding Associations and other organizations that will help me network and spread the word! Yay!
