Garrett Sutton goes through all the reasons why doing business as a person is a bad idea. If you operate under your own name, you open yourself up to liabilities which can wipe you out financially and emotionally, often through no fault of your own (except for ignorance). You also pay much more in taxes than you should have, based on higher tax rates and less options for legitimate deductions.

He then goes on to describe the different forms of entities you can form to operate under, and clearly explains the pros and cons behind each one. Some are really no different than operating under your own name. Garrett labels these 'bad entities' and steers you clear of them. The remaining 'good entities' are explained, with many examples, so you can find one that fits your particular situation. There is no 'one size fits all', as the examples will make quite clear.

Asset protection, tax benefits, estate planning, succession planning, these are all covered in enough detail to be useful, but not so much that your eyes glaze over. This book is no replacement for an attorney's advice, or a CPA's, and Garrett is also very clear on this. It will, however, give you a leg up so when you do talk to your own advisor(s), they will not need to explain every little concept to you, and if you get billed by the hour, then this book will save you many hours.

Highly recommended, and a credit to the Rich Dad Advisor series.

I gave it 5 stars because of the way it was written which makes it easy for new entrepreneurs to understand and apply its principles. Now I know how risky it is to start a business as a sole proprietor or in a partnership. The author convinced me that in order to protect one's wealth, it is important to create a corporation. All in all, this book is the perfect complement to Robert Kiyosaki's book, Rich Dad Poor Dad.

I really got a lot out of this book. I was skeptical about how much information would really be availbale in a book. I was pleasantly surprised. I espeacially appreciated the stories, it created a visual and I was able to grasp what was being said. I recommend this book for anyone who wants to get a head start on owning your own business. It'll save you a lot in attorney fees.

I've formed 2 LLC's and 4 corporations for my businesses. And every time, I had to do internet research in order to refresh my knowledge again about what entity would be the right fit for different types of businesses in terms of tax treatment and corporate formalities. I know I should probably hire an attorney or a CPA to do it for me but I'm a research guy. I just couldn't find one definitive and authoritative source I could refer to until I saw this book by Garrett Sutton.

I've been a Rich Dad books reader and Kiyosaki mentioned Sutton a few times as part of his advisory team. When I saw that he released this book, I knew I had to have it for my personal library. And it didn't disappoint. Still one of my favorite books along with the latter release, Run Your Own Corporation.

You decided to start your own business and things are looking bright. However, where there is light, there is always shadow. Have you considered what could go wrong in this journey? Do you know what you are exposing yourself to by starting a business? What can you do to avoid risks?

This and many more questions are reviewed and addressed by Garret Sutton by means of scenarios and real life experience. This book really helps first time entrepreneurs understand why corporations are a must to protect your dreams and future.

Interested in how to "avoid", not "evade", certain taxes? Start Your Own Corporation helps, those looking to start their own business, with a better understanding of various corporate structures, recommendations on where to get reliable tax advice, and what states are best to incorporate in. DO NOT INCORPORATE BEFORE READING THIS BOOK.
