Hello from Laura Kesler Photography LLC!

Hello, and welcome to my very first blog post!

I am so happy to be here and to be getting my business and blog up and running!!

Ever wonder what it takes to start a new small business? This is something I have been researching and learning about for the past year.  And despite the risk and uncertainty involved, I took the plunge this summer, creating Laura Kesler Photography, LLC. 

There is a lot more to it than originally anticipated - but for those who are curious, the initial steps involved forming an LLC...registering for and purchasing required business licenses...obtaining federal and local tax ID numbers...getting the business website up and running...consulting with attorneys...drafting and purchasing contracts and business forms...and a myriad of other tasks.

Now that the basics have been put into place, I am ready to get to work creating photographs for those in my area. The question before me now is, how do I get my business "out there" into the community? How do I connect with others who may be interested in our services? How do I best go about connecting - and forming new business relationships - with members of our community and with fellow photographers in my area? 

Starting a new business can be scary. Its takes significant investments of time, energy, effort, and financial resources - with no guarantee that there will be a need or place for the services and products offered. Here's hoping there is a place for me in the world of photography and in my local business community!
