Module 1 - My Primary Takeaways


This lesson offers a nice introduction to the FBA business model, doing a great job at educating students that while not an overnight money maker, this business can be profitable in a fairly short period of time. 

Additionally, Tim does a quality comparison as he lists the pros of different business licenses. Tim advocates for a Limited Liability Company license for a number of reasons. In my case, I went straight to an LLC as they can be obtained affordably and offer the most flexibility when filing Uncle Sam's dues (taxes).
