Shawn HunstockThe Pybus University class on Tuesday, March 12 at 7pm is entilted: “Small Business Start-up: Tips, Tricks and Lessons Learned.” The instructor is Shawn Hunstock.

If you are considering opening a new full-time business or a part-time side business, this class will give you information you need to get started. Starting a new business can be a daunting task. Where do you start? IRS? DOR? L&I? Shawn Hunstock will walk you through some of the options and steps in the process, discuss things that need to happen in a certain sequence, and share resources you can take and refer to later.

Did you know that local zoning or HOA rules can put the brakes on your new business even before it gets started? Do you know how to get a new tax ID and what your options are? Did you know that more than one business license might be required? Thinking of having employees and don’t have a clue what the implications of that are?

Our discussion will focus primarily on the financial and administrative issues surrounding opening a new business and beginning operations. A brief overview of some of the issues and options for opening an online business will also be discussed.
