You probably are thinking, "Great, I am done!" Nope! You should register your business name with your county. They will need to check your name against previously filed names to make sure business name you chose isn't already taken by another business.
Just imagine working for months or years with an unregistered business name and then getting a notice in mail to stop using someone else's business name. You would have to start all over from scratch again. You would have to toss your business cards, letterhead, envelopes, invoices, and everything else you printed for your company into trash. And what a disaster you would have created on web. You would have to find everywhere that is linking to your page and ask them to change your business name. What a mess! So, register your business - it is worth it!
Before you fill out paperwork to register your business name, pick 3 names, so you don't have to refile if they reject your business name. Also, scan your phonebook and do web searches to make sure that you cannot find name that you have chosen. I recommend using mamma.com or google.com for your search.these are 2 most comprehensive search engines on net.
Now that you have registered your business name, go on ahead and print business cards, letterhead, and invoices. The business name you have chosen belongs to you!
