Hi. I recently closed my fitness studio to move out of state. I now want to start networking and gaining contacts in hopes of building a client base in my new location and finding places to teach. I’m in the middle of creating business cards to hand out. My question is, do I use my personal name to market myself or should I use my LLC business name (still a valid LLC in my old state) to market myself? Thanks!
And you may need to register your old business name and LLC in the new state as an out of state or foreign business to use the LLC there. But if you do intend to do that, check what you will need to do if you decide not to continue under the LLC. Some states charge fees to “keep business in good standing” and will report you to credit bureaus if you don’t keep up those payments.
