The strategy should also take into account contingencies such as illness or death.
- Liability Protection: Protects your small business in the event of a lawsuit for personal injury or property damages. It will usually cover the damages from a lawsuit along with the legal costs. Depending on your business needs, liability insurance can be purchased in many forms.

- Entity Formation- LLC, LLP, Sole Proprietorship, Partnership, S-Corp: This decision will be based upon, in large part, the type of business you are creating and the extent to which the entity will protect its principals from personal liability. Determined by the size and scope of the business, and its anticipated management and ownership.
- Registered Agent Services: A registered agent is a person or entity, designated in the articles of incorporation / organization, who can accept legal documents and notifications from a state office on behalf of a corporate entity.
