How to Start Your own Charter Boat Business

“The person who goes farthest is generally the one who is willing to do and dare. The sure-thing boat never gets far from shore.”

Dale Carnegie

Are you ready to captain your own boat and business?  Do you already have a portfolio of customers looking to embark on an expedition at sea? There are endless possibilities, but there are a few formalities that may prevent you from quickly turning a profit.

What happens if there is an accident caused by inclement weather? What if a bad employee files of unemployment or sues for discrimination? What city, county, or state should you obtain a business license for? For answers to these and other questions count on StartUp, Legally!
