Resources you need for your business
There are a number of useful sites to guide anyone who wants to start a business. Below are the most useful ones.
In addition, another source to find useful information on starting a business is your local library. Here is a link to some of the most useful books on starting a business available on amazon.com. I would suggest that you read the reviews before choosing the ones that you like.

When you decide what type of business to provide – service, product or a mixture of the two, it is then time to decide on the business structure. From personal experience, I would suggest that you stay away from sole proprietorship. I was forced to change the name of my business when I realized that the name I had registered and used for more than 5 years was a name used by other registered businesses in my state.

Business Name Registration
You may ask, what is in the name of a business name? Everything! As a new business, it’s best to have a name that immediately hints potential customers about what services you offer or what you’re selling. Although a catchy name like “Fella’s” may be appealing,the name doesn’t attract potential buyers. On the other hand, “Mama’s pizzeria” suggests homemade pizza & the name is likely to appeal to new customers. Research the name that you choose to make sure that it’s available at CorpNet® .

Free business Ebooks
I would suggest that at least you glance through all the books because you need to understand some basic concepts relation to marketing in various domains. Each of the ebooks listed specializes mainly in one aspect. Again, it’s best to read at least half of the book before attempting to open another link so that your attention is not diverted from the topic you’re reading.
