hey man, You can contact your local chamber of commerce. They can help you get started. Ours set us up with a free small buisiness counsler who helped us get things rolling. You should start putting together a buisinesss plan so you have some things on paper when you meet with him. Also your going to need a lawyer if you want to do things rite. You can do it with out but I wouldnt. Talk to the counsler first. Good luck
