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!
I would use my name for the time being. If you want to open a business in the new state, you may decide to change the LLC name (or the old name may already be used in the new one and you need to change it anyway). Even though I have a business name, most people think of me by my personal name.
