Working again

My time off has come to an end as I start working again this week. I’ve been hired on contract, working at Bell. It’ll be nice to be working again (although, of course, being off was nice while it lasted.) I suppose I officially started on Tuesday this week, but I’ve had to wait for a few things to fall into place before I can be at work on site. I’m very excited about it — sounds like a fun project!

At present, Reid and I are both sole proprietors. A while back, we investigated incorporating, but decided the negatives outweighed the positives. However, I am required to incorporate to have this job, so we’ll look at that whole thing again. We’ve been getting better tax advice this time, and I think it really does make sense for us to incorporate together. We’ve been trying to decide on a name. It just seems too obvious: we’ll probably call it “T’nir Consulting”, likely dropping the apostrophe. I know it’s an odd name to most, but we’ve had tnir.org for so long, email address at tnir, etc. And Reid mentioned that tnir is officially on the old uucp network maps – so why not?!

If anyone out there has advice for incorporating, feel free to share it with us!

I think someone/something was waiting for my last project to be finished before I got this job. I was just finishing building a cabinet to hold our HD TV when I got the job. Building a TV stand sounds impressive, doesn’t it? Ya, well. It’s really just a box since I really don’t have woodworking experience to speak of. More on that another day.

  1. I started the whole incorporation process but then my site got bought before it was finished. I did get the corporate seal, though, and gave it to Scott M. to use for target practice. 🙂

    Good luck!

  2. You might want to have a look at nolo’s website (self help law publishing company I used to work for in CA), nolo.com. It’s American law, but it’s pretty similar to Canadian, and you might find some useful background info.

    And congratulations!
