Six and it's my final offer!
I didn't think we were that far apart on this iddee. We're not. I'm certainly not advocating foisting a hobby off as a business. If it's a hobby, fine. If you want to call it a business then you should do so with the clear intention of (eventually at least) making money- otherwise, it's a hobby, and you're in the wrong business [img]smile.gif[/img]
That said, if your business doesn't make money for a while, that's perfectly OK and actually to be expected. I already said that most small businesses fail in the first 3 years- what I didn't say is that they fail because they're under-capitalized i.e., they didn't have enough seed money thrown at them in the beginning to get to the point where they ARE profitable.
I also firmly believe it is our duty as citizens of this country to pay the least taxes possible while obeying the law. That's what the really rich people do [img]smile.gif[/img]
