Announcing a Bouncing, Baby... Company!

Yes, I have been away from UXCentric for a few weeks. A number of year-end projects have kept me hopping—and I have an exciting project of my own.

On November 22, UXCentric became more than a blog. Give a hearty welcome to UXCentric, Inc.! Business has been good and it was time to take advantage of the benefits offered by the corporate structure. And the change will spur me toward some exciting things in the future.

The process was remarkably user-friendly thanks to the always UXCentric assistance of Nolo, a leading provider of "do-it-yourself legal solutions for consumers and small businesses." I especially recommend Working for Yourself: Law & Taxes for Independent Contractors, Freelancers & Consultants. And How to Form Your Own California Corporation provided wonderful step-by-step guidance, checklists, forms and advice.

For the heavy lifting, I turned to my CPA and the services of BizFilings.com, a leading Web provider of incorporation services. The process was smooth as silk.

Now I'm surveying insurance and payroll providers, jumping through the usual federal and state hoops and beginning work on a new business and marketing plan. I love this stuff, so reminiscent of my long-ago retail management days.

So things may be lean here at UXCentric the Blog for a few more weeks. But I'll be back in 2006!

Just out of curiousity, did you Incorporate as a 'S' or 'C' Corp? If the former, can i ask what you found were the major advantages over Sole Proprietorship, other than liability issues?

In general, a great source for information on this this e-guide at Nolo.com, "Choose the Best Legal Entity for Your One-Person Business."
