Seriously though, starting your own business is not for the faint of heart or wallet. Take for example, starting a business in my neck of the woods. You'd be down about $900-1000 bucks just for filling out the state formation and franchise tax papers. This doesn't include any sales tax deposit, or city business tax expense. Nor professional fees.
This is all before you rent a space, deal with health dept costs, get insurance, and assorted capital expenditures.
Then what if you want to hire an employee? That's a whole other layer of complexity with payroll taxes, workers comp, unemployment...
