6.1 Now what?
Return to your business plan. See where the material in this lesson either clarified issues for your plan – or raised more questions. Where you have more questions, look into some of the resources noted in this Lesson.
6.2 Potential Advisers and Assistance
There are government websites where you can get a deeper treatment of some of the issues.
Copyright Office: www.copyright.gov.
U.S. Patent and Trademark Office: www.uspto.gov.
Internal Revenue Service: www.irs.gov/businesses/ (for information on starting and operating a business, including employment taxes)
This may also be the time for you to start seeking out advisers of your own, so that you can get answers to your specific situation.
