Hi Angela. I can definitely see that you've been working hard and I can tell that it has paid off and it will continue to do so. Seeing your end product as well as the direction that you're taking your business is truly inspiring. I am new to this community just joined yesterday actually and I landed on a photo of your products and was truly amazed. I wish you continued success. Hope you are open to me picking your brain from time to time regarding starting a business.
Hi Angela no worries I did have them professionally done by my web master which is also a photographer, it worth it's to have them done by a product photographer, cause if your planning on doing shows that are juried they will ask for a cd of your work . Don't hestiate to contact for any questions you might have
I have not aqcuired my business license yet. My target was to get this completed this month, but since this is almost the end of the month, I will probably do so the first two weeks in December. I plan on operating my business out of my home. Would you please share some of your challenges with acquiring a business license? I live in Winthrop Harbor, Illinois and so far in my research I haven't heard of any restrictions.
First of all, I'm excited for you that you would like to move forward with protecting your brand. My general process work likes this: we have a conversation over email or by phone to help determine the best route of filing depending on the needs of your business. I can also give you some background information at that time, depending on your knowledge of trademarks in general. I do research to ensure the strength of the fiing, and I'll let you know if I see any red flags before filing. Then I file the paperwork and handle the application as it moves through the examination process until registration is finalized.
My rates depend somewhat on your needs (I lower the price per mark if multiple filings are necessary), but I do charge a flat rate for my services so there are no surprises. I also give a 15% discount to IBN members. I never want cost to prevent a small business owner from this process, and all my clients are small business owners.
I would be available to talk this week if you'd like to give me a call; let me know what time works best for you and we can go from there!

I am not sure what you are referring to. I have my FL BUSINESS license and I have a home based business permit from the county I reside in. I am unaware of any other licensing requirements. Educate me...please
Sorry for the delay. I would suggest calling the company you purchased the containers from because some companies sterilize the containers before shipping. Otherwise you can use a bleach & water dilution or a natural sanitizing spray.
All of Taylor Made Organics packing materials (bottles, jars, pumps, etc) are sterile before adding finished products.
