OK boys and girls or OK girls and boys This is my first attempt at a “blog”. I don’t even understand what it is. To start with, it is my first priority to be FUNNY. At my age, if you ask a woman or a man what is the most important thing in a marriage they will say a sense of humor. Those of you 40+ out there know what I mean.
So you want to start a business. This hopefully will be a series of do’s and don’ts of starting your own woodworking (((or what ever ((for the Wife(her name is Sue))))) business. That’s what happens when you try to be politically correct. Someone (or was it someones wife) mentioned the “wife” didn’t think the wives liked being called the “wife” or… You get the idea don’t you. Did you know (or remember) that there was a time when unknown gender was masculine. That was proper English as was a ship was feminine. Not “he or she” did this or did that.
This is going to be a recap of what I (we) have gone through, Thought about, wrestled with, or just plain did to get this business going. I (we) live in California where government thinks it should control your every move. The part that drives me crazy is so many think this is the way this state should be. That is, just as long as it does not apply to them. We adapt and learn to live with all of the regulations and the nosy neighbors that make you law abiding. Except for New York, you all should have an easer time with regulations than I did.
I will discuss business licenses, resale numbers, tax I.D.’s, permits, arts and crafts shows (and their fees), Wholesale selling, and the dreaded arts and craft show commissions. I am still gathering my thoughts as to how to organize this. Therefore the title … look up.
