Virtual Assistant Association Hosts Teleseminar on October 16 to Help Small Business Owners Learn More About Business Formations

Released on: October 7, 2008, 5:16 pm

Press Release Author: Danielle Keister

Industry: Small Business

Press Release Summary: Small business attorney Nina Kaufman to discuss various
business formations and how Virtual Assistants and other small business owners can
choose the one that rights for them.

Press Release Body: Solopreneurship is on the rise. In particular, the growth of
women-owned businesses has exploded over the past two decades—and these companies
tend not to have employees (approx. 75%) and tend to be service-based (over 50%).
According to a 2006 study conducted by the SBA's Office of Advocacy, home-based sole
proprietors generate $102 billion in annual revenue.

However, operating as sole proprietorships means that their personal assets— their
homes, their cars, their jewelry, their bank accounts—are at risk of being seized if
a disgruntled customer gets a judgment against them. Educating solo service
professionals, like Virtual Assistants, how to identify the legal issues that they
face so that they can protect themselves economically has been a calling for Nina
Kaufman, an award-winning small business attorney, edutainer, and entrepreneur.
Given that 80% of all businesses fail within the first five years, and that
ltigation costs have grown four times faster than the overall economy since 1930,
small businesses need protection more than ever.

On October 16, Nina will be presenting a teleseminar entitled, "Are You Exposing
Yourself? How Choosing the Right Business Form Provides Protection and Peace of
Mind" to the Virtual Assistant commuity. Sponsored by the Virtual Assistance Chamber
of Commerce, this teleclass will help Virtual Assistants and other solo
professionals identify the benefits and drawbacks of different business entities so
they they can take steps to protect themselves, their businesses, and their

A few of the issues that will be covered include:

the different kinds of business entities that will protect your assets
how to weigh and balance the options to choose a form that's right for your business
the drawbacks to handling business formation online
how to find the professional advisors who can guide you to your goals
