Success Requires Being Prepared for Opportunity - Start Now!
Luck Is What Happens When Preparation Meets Opportunity
This quote, attributed to Roman philosopher Seneca, reminds us that we make our own luck.
The difference between lucky and unlucky people, as we've seen before, is all in our perspective.
Luck isn't just about being at the right place at the right time. It's also about being ready for new opportunities.
It is important to your success in obtaining a license that our firm has already formed your corporation (Step 1) and you have completed as many of the Department of Control's online application requirements (Step 2) before the City or County opens its application window.
The City and County application windows are short for the amount of information they require.

Step 1 Forming a Corporation or LLC
This is the foundation of your business. Why, because your entire business model will rest upon your choice of business structure.
A basic business course teaches the main reason for forming a corporation or LLC is to limit the liability of the owners.
In a sole proprietorship or partnership, the owners are personally liable for the debts and liabilities of the business, and in many instances, creditors can go after their personal assets to collect business debts.
If a corporation or LLC is formed and operated properly, the owners can be protected from all such liability.
Once your corporation or LLC is formed, owners of the business will be named and issued stock or membership certificates to verify their ownership interests.
Step 2 Apply for State and Local Jurisdiction (County or City) Licenses
Now that you have successfully formed your business, you are now ready to start the application process for your State and Local Jurisdiction (County or City) Licenses.
One of the first and most important questions asked for in the application is: WHO ARE THE OWNERS? WHAT IS YOUR EIN? PROVIDE A COPY OF THE BUSINESS FORMATION DOCUMENTS - BYLAWS - MINUTES - OWNERSHIP INTEREST. Which have all been prepared in Step 1.
