To improve the lives of those we meet by providing the support they need to succeed.
One of the greatest challenges to the new small business entrepreneur - and even some who have been in business for several years - is learning the underpinnings of a good foundation to prevent them from making the mistakes that could cost them thousands of dollars or even put them out of business.
When starting a business, most people just want to get out there and go for it. They don't want to be bothered with paperwork and legalities. But that is why we are here. To answer your questions. To give some advice. To help you from making costly monetary and legal mistakes.
This website is the culmination of working with people for over two decades to structure their businesses. Some of the things you will learn here are:
- What type of receipts do you need to keep and how to organize them.
- What is the difference between the different legal business formats.
- How the legal formats affect your tax liability.
- What reports to create to get ready for tax time.
- The basics of marketing your business
- How to manage your time
- The real truth about money and how to manage it.
Because we live our mission statement, we provide all of this basic information for free. Just knowing the basics provided could give you a head start in your quest to build a successful business. We recommend everyone start with the - appropriately named - Foundation Business Courses.
Then you can browse through the Library to find articles that may help you with a particular area of your business progress. We are constantly adding new articles, which are listed on the front page in the 'Our Latest Articles' block. If you have a particular subject you are interested in, just Contact Us and we'll see what we can do to help you.
For those that would prefer more detailed and personalized help, we offer advanced courses that expand on the first three modules of the Foundation Series and virtual consultations to tailor the information to your personal situation. If you have an interest in that, you may click on the Advanced Courses link in the menu or go to the Seagull Technologies Training Courses site.
This site was built to help you succeed in your quest to create a successful business, to avoid the pitfalls we've helped so many people dig out of, and celebrate the completion of your dream. Join the journey.
