You are going to want an attorney to help you set up the new legal entity for your venture as well as have him or her, review contracts on your behalf. A trusted CPA will provide guidance on setting up your accounting system. Your CPA will also work closely with your book keeper on monitoring monthly revenue and expenses.

Your existing contacts may be crucial in helping you decide which works best for you. Your existing base of connections may be just what you need to get that signed contract that gets those wheels spinning to profits.
