Hello, my name is John Niemira, and I'm here on the campus of Steven Henager College in Salt Lake City. I'm an instructor here, and today I wanted to talk to you about becoming a sole proprietor of your business. A sole proprietor is a single owner of a business. A sole proprietor is a simple process and maybe the easiest process for starting your own business, whether it's a home based business, a web-based business, a service industry or a storefront downtown. Sole proprietor is a simple process, go down to your local county government offices, licensing offices and ask for any application - a business application. In the application it'll ask about the different types of businesses, you want to look at the sole proprietor, or a partnership or corporation or a company. A sole proprietor is a very simple process, a minimal fee, be careful with the application, it's probably not an application you need your attorney for, but if there are any questions either get online or ask your business attorney. For any more information on this topic or any other business topic, you can contact me directly at my email
