If you are selling nutrients, you need to consider forming a corporation or limited liability company for your business activities. One of the easiest ways to do this is to enlist the help of the Delaware company that probably does more of this work than any other company. I've used The Company Corporation for years and find them very helpful.
Here is a link to their site. To form a Limited Company, click here and follow their instructions: The Company Formation Site. If you need to reach the Company Corporation by phone, their number is 1-888-340-7239 and please give them my Affiliate Number, 1322. There are various ideas about
Asset Protection that you may also want to consider. This Company Formation information and link are offered as public services and are not intended to create a lawyer/client relationship.
