IVstudios LLC

Postby IVstudios on Fri May 29, 2009 6:18 pm

About two months ago I was laid off from my job at the theatre.

So, in an attempt to make the best out of a bad situation I signed up for some self employment classes, hoping to get into doing some freelance Illustration and Graphic Design. To make it official I registered as a Limited Liability Company. That's right, as of today IVstudios is officially a small business! :D

Now all I have to worry about is taxes and accounting and marketing and trying to get some clients… D:

If you do go the self employment rout, I can already recommend taking self employment classes. They've helped me a lot. I don't know if you're working now or what, but if you ever end up on Unemployment look into the SEA program. You get to take the classes for free. (If I remember right you live in NJ? I don't know if it's available in other States)

I am very unemployed right now, if anyone has any good job leads I'm good at a lot of stuff! I live in California, so I'm sure there's some sort of equivalent?

I'm not sure about CA, but if you're on unemployment you can do down to the Unemployment Office and ask if they have and Self Employment programs. If not I'm sure you can take some at a local Community College. But that probably won't be free.
