Hi everyone this is my first post here and my understanding of entrepreneurship is still very remedial. I can use some advice for structuring my business'. My vision is to own a Corporation for operating three businesses. The three businesses I plan to have are: 1. providing a cleaning service 2. managing my own rental properties 3. helping to fund young adults college educations I already have the cleaning service and it is generating revenue. Right now it is just a one man show (just myself working), and it is registered with a DBA. Question: Should I buy an LLC in order to protect myself from liabilities? I do not have any rental properties yet, but those are coming in the near future. I may also do some flipping but I am unsure at this point. Question: Should I make it an LLC for operating the real estate and rental business? For helping to fund peoples educations, I think a non-profit might work best. With the non-profit I want to donate a small percentage of my profits from my cleaning service and my rental properties. Question about d/b/a, LLC, and s-corps: Will one s-corp be enough to protect all of my businesses even if they are registered under a dba? I live in Florida. If you can offer any advice about how to structure this business I would appreciate it. Thanks.
