Course Outline

Getting an EIN number

An EIN number is like a social security number for your business. We’ll talk about how (and when) to acquire an EIN number so that you can report your finances to the IRS.

Forming an LLC

Before your entity can start as a fully functioning business, you’ll need to properly define its founding members and their respective responsibilities. We’ll talk about how to form an LLC with the core partners of your business, or as a solo proprietor. 

Finding a patent attorney

Finding a business attorney can be daunting, but finding one who understands your vibe will go a long way to set you up for success in the long run. 

Building your unique brand

We’ll dive into the work of building a brand that represents your unique and authentic message so that you can attract your ideal customers and clients.

Finding your licenses

In order to operate legally, every entity needs to have an appropriate license– and that can be a lot of information to sort through. We’ll talk about the legal requirements, tax implications that you’ll need to consider when deciding on a license. 

Choosing a name & Creating a Logo

We’ll walk through specific steps to develop a name and a logo that reflect your brand and your business so that you don’t get stuck in a name rut– or unnecessarily go through the hassle of redesigning your brand.

TESTIMONIALS FROM STUDENTS WHO’VE TAKEN THE COURSE:

Allie

As an entrepreneur who works online, I don’t have many opportunities to meet likeminded ladies. GoGirl Innovation is great because it gives women an opportunity to learn and grow and gain inspiration and advice from those who have succeeded in the industry. I appreciate how information is readily available to help women grow and start a business, release a product or even to expand the business they already operate. It’s so important for women to learn from each other and GoGirl Innovation makes doing so easy and convenient.

About Melissa Knaus

I’m Melissa Knaus. I’m an entrepreneur, patent expert, and business coach with a passion for helping women create the businesses they dream of leading. When I traded in my full-time office job to start a company and patent my first product, there was a lot I didn’t know. How do I form an LLC? Or should I form an INC? What should my patent sketches look like? How do I market and sell my product? What I did know was much more powerful.
