Last week, I filed the paperwork with the IRS and the State of Ohio, and my new company officially exists now.
Yesterday, I registered my domain name and a friend of mine coached me through getting the domain and email services set up on his server. (Thanks Bakaitis!) I don't have a website yet, but at least I'm heading in that direction.
Today, I made my first sales call, to set up a demonstration of the software for a potential new client on Monday, October 1st.
One of my husband's friends is working on developing a logo, and I'm looking forward to seeing his concepts tomorrow night. Once that's done, I'll be having some business cards printed right away!
Next week, I'm going to be attending a conference with the software company that I'm partnering with. They'll be using the conference to introduce my company as their "Sales and Implementation Partner" for the United States. (They're based in Switzerland, so I'll be responsible for helping them develop a client-base here.)
After several weeks of waiting, I'm excited that things are starting to move!
