Let’s face it, navigating your 20s and 30s is no easy feat, but doing that while looking to start a business is even more difficult. From initial funding processes to increasing your online presence, to tackling accounting and more, there’s a lot that goes into getting your business off the ground. Even with all this, it doesn’t have to keep you up at night.
Luckily for today’s cash-strapped entrepreneurs, Intuit QuickBooks has created a new, free tool that answers so many questions asked in those first few months of launching a business.
Getting Started is Easier than You Think (No really, it is).
With Intuit QuickBooks’ new online resource, entrepreneurs will be guided through the key areas needed to set up a business and actually get it running. By answering a few simple questions like, “where will your business be located?,” you’ll be prompted through the guide and given access to all the information necessary to get started in what will seem like just a matter of minutes.
Setting up for Success.
Believe it or not, one of the most commonly asked questions we hear is “what type of business do I need to set up?” Understanding the difference between a sole proprietorship to C-corp to LLC isn’t always easy, but this online tool breaks it down in simple terms. While there are a lot of options, it doesn’t have to be overwhelming. This new resource is here to help with structuring your business and getting the right paperwork in place to make it a success.
Show Me the Money.
There’s nothing like your first sale. Intuit QuickBooks’ new online tool also helps entrepreneurs determine the best way to get paid. While it seems like one of the easier items to figure out, there’s a lot of options out there, so understanding what’s right for you will fast-track you to raking in the money.
Creating a Website.
Everyone knows you need a website and online presence to be successful in today’s age, but not everyone knows where to start. Many entrepreneurs lack the tech skills needed to build a website – there’s only so many DIY coding videos you can watch. The online tool will provide you with a ton of platforms for quick and easy web design, as well as providing some guidance on building out our social media presence. No longer does building a website and social media footprint have to be a daunting or expensive task.
Hiring Fast and Smart.
Business adventures are more fun when you’re tackling each challenge with a team. After all, there’s only so much you can do on your own before you want to rip your hair out. Building out a team to help man the frontlines can be both exciting and terrifying. That’s why this tool is here to help find the right employees, arm them with the right forms and get them started with the right salary.
Help! I Need Somebody!
As an entrepreneur, you’ll have a lot of best friends. Accountants, lawyers, mentors and fellow entrepreneurs will be essential players in your journey to success. The new tool will provide users with direct access and links to peer-reviewed data bases and referral networks in your individual community. Hop online, make an intro and start drafting your dream team of best friends.

Getting your business up and running can be overwhelming and confusing, but it doesn’t have to be! The free new online tool from Intuit QuickBooks is the best way to start your business off on the right foot without feeling completely overwhelmed or alone in the journey.
