BizFilings' Fourth of July Advice to the Nation's Future Entrepreneurs: "You May Be Independent, but You’re Not Alone"

MADISON, Wis. (June 28, 2010)

While you might think of fireworks and flags on the Fourth of July, BizFilings urges the nation’s fledgling entrepreneurs to think about life, liberty and the pursuit of the American Dream—launching their own business. A leading provider of online incorporation services, BizFilings doesn’t just offer incorporation products—it helps entrepreneurs make their dreams into reality through an array of business support services.

“We understand starting a new business is a big deal for first-time entrepreneurs—there is no ‘try before you buy’ option,” says Karen Kobelski, general manager of BizFilings. “New entrepreneurs are self-starters with insatiable appetites for learning everything there is to know about launching a business. Our customers are looking for much more than incorporation assistance; they’re looking for a partner who can offer helpful and timely advice to manage and grow the businesses over the long run. We’re not about just closing the sale; we’re in it for the long haul. You may be independent, but you’re not alone.”

BizFilings helps entrepreneurs make their dreams reality—entrepreneurs such as Danielle Schepisi, owner of Eclipse Hair Studio, Inc. in Scarsdale, New York. A chronic carpel tunnel syndrome sufferer, Schepisi nearly had to give up her lifelong dream of independence—owning a hair salon—literally because of the pain the condition caused her. Enter BizFilings, which helped better position her business for financing through its incorporation and support services.

“My symptoms were so severe, I could not even lift or hold a blow-dryer; I was afraid I might not be able to run my business anymore,” confided Schepisi. “BizFilings helped me to understand the value of incorporating my business, making it more appealing to lenders. Thanks to BizFilings, I was able to purchase a system that suspends the dryers from the ceiling so they are essentially weightless—this has allowed me to continue my career as a stylist and remain an independent small business owner.”
