The sense of self-importance is mind-boggling.

Give me a break
Here would be some business (or personal) advice, then. Don’t take people’s opinions on the internet so personally. If you plan to start your own business, you’ll need to learn to think in a more level-headed (and professional) manner to be successful (as opposed to emotionally reacting or throwing verbal jabs; it’s a waste of time). A clear, concise business plan is what you need to establish - and would help you, at least partially, to answer your own question per my original comment. Otherwise, it’s not taken seriously - and starting your own business should be serious - yes? Again, good luck.

Thank you for your condescending lecture.

Anyone with thoughtful, considerate, mature professional opinions is welcome.

Investors are going to take one look at the complicated structure and pass. Getting out from under personal liability is not as easy as starting companies, a holding company, big brother, or any of that. In point of fact, some business owners find it simpler to assign all personal assets to their spouse prior to starting. That has its own risks.

I was able to incorporate my niche business as a subchapter S on my own - after consulting with my CPA. In California, I wouldn't even begin without business plan, CPA and attorney on board, and a pile of money I was prepared to lose if things went pear shaped. I'd also be paying close attention to any and all liability issues and have contingencies in place.

Thanks Harry. Always appreciate your advice (and your sense of humor - from your past posts).

Starting a company in California is not ideal, but it is where I live and a greater resource to draw from. So it's a mixed bag. I have gotten good feedbacks on my IP, including from the US government, but I am pursuing this cautiously.
