Feb. 1 marks National Freedom Day, originally recognized as a day to commemorate President Lincoln's 1865 signing of the resolution that proposed the 13th amendment to the Constitution and abolished slavery. This day has been nationally observed since Feb. 1, 1948, when President Truman signed a bill proclaiming Feb. 1 as a day when citizens reflect on the many different freedoms that the United States offers.
One of the many freedoms our country offers is the freedom to pursue dreams by starting a business. According to the Small Business Administration, more than 600,000 new businesses are started each year in the United States. Starting a business begins with incorporation, an important step that helps determine how businesses will be run, frees individuals from personal liability, and builds credibility for entrepreneurs and their start-ups.
"Each year, thousands of individuals are seeking opportunity and financial reward by starting their own business," says Karen Kobelski, general manager of BizFilings. "Incorporating a business puts you on the right track to succeed and can make sure that your personal assets are free from your business's liabilities."
