I recently used SCORE to help with my business plan and they haven't been helpful.



I need help with things like payroll, insurance, switching to an LLP, etc. Is there another place that can offer guidance/coaching?

Are you just putting together a business plan at this point or have you already started doing business?

I already started doing business. However, I haven't done any business this year because I work full time at another job. Plus I would like to restructure and make a lot of changes to my business.

You might try going to a Small Business Development Center or even look on your state's website and see if they have a small business section with a checklist of things you need to do.

Not exactly sure what you're looking for though, no one guides or coaches you through this. If this is your business, you get to research, make decisions and take care of all these items yourself. You can choose to switch to an LLC by doing it yourself or by hiring and paying an attorney to do it for you. If you want insurance, you research your options and call local brokers and buy a policy. When you get to the point where you need a payroll service, you research and then decide if you will pay a big company or an online service where you just punch in the hours your employees work.

More important than everything above - do you have the drive to work this business, do the cold calling, sell the product/service, have what customers want/need, able to price it correctly so they're happy and you can make a profit?

I assume since you had sales last year that you're good with your product sources, invoicing, bookkeeping and tax reporting already.
