How to Start an LLC for Teacher Business Owners

Learning how to start an LLC for your teacher business is not easy without the proper guidance. There are just so many forms to fill out & questions that aren’t the easiest to answer. So you either plead ignorance and hope for the best (this is not a good idea by the way…) or you find an attorney who can walk you through the process.

When I first started my blog and my Teachers Pay Teacher shop, all I knew for sure was that I wanted to help other teachers by providing tips & resources to help them be more effective classroom teachers. But, I had absolutely NO idea what I was doing as a business owner.

In all honesty, I didn’t even know what the acronym LLC meant, but I knew it was something legal and therefore meant expensive. All I could think about was the fact that I was working sooooooo hard for what little bit of money I was making and I certainly didn’t want to spend it all working with an attorney…just so that I could add a fancy LLC to the end of my business name.

It wasn’t until I met Andrea that I learned why forming a Limited Liability Corporation was vital for my business (and how it protected my family) and how being a “small business” didn’t release me from needing to know the important legal stuff.

So today, Andrea is answering all of the questions you might have about forming an LLC for teacher business owners, applying for a business license, and the other legal things you didn’t know you needed to know!

Andrea is a practicing attorney, entrepreneur, and founder of, where she helps women DIY the legal stuff in their business so they can be protected and grow with confidence. She lives in Louisville, Kentucky with her husband, four kids, two cats & a dog.
