Starting Your Biz

What’s in a name?  Well, in the case of ANJÉ Soirees, it’s the names of two of South Florida’s brightest stars in the event planning industry – Andi Dyal and Jen Schwartz.  When questioned about the way they began their successful business, they said the following:
Before the “fun” starts with a new business, there is a lot of necessary paperwork that needs to be completed.  First, you need to decide if you want to run with this idea on your own, or work with a partner.  We decided it would be more fun with two!  So, we did the necessary research and did the following:
  • Incorporated our business with the State of Florida.
  • Applied to be an S-Corporation in order to receive our Employer Tax ID Number which we would need for all necessary paperwork going forward.
  • Confirmed the potential name for our company was available after many brainstorming sessions and visits to GOOGLE.
  • Put together a business plan after meeting with each other several times and deciding what the company goals should be and what type of client we wanted to represent.
  • Met with an attorney and created a partnership agreement to ensure we both agreed on the basics of the company and could foresee resolutions to potential issues between the two of us.
  • Opened a company bank account after researching banks and credit card companies for the best rate.
  • Created a website after receiving bids from different designers and choosing the company we trusted the most.
  • Ordered business cards and promotional materials from a trusted vendor after carefully choosing the colors and paper quality we wanted to represent our company.

After completing the items above, we were ready to officially launch our company and begin networking and advertising to build our brand.  While the beginning parts to starting a business can be costly and time consuming, it’s the only way to ensure your company starts off on the right foot.
