Getting paid by check:

Looks more professional when written to a business instead of an individual... ie:

You: "Ok that will be $xx"
Customer: "Who do I make the check out to?"
You: "XYZ Computer Repairs"

instead of

You: "Ok that will be $xx"
Customer: "Who do I make the check out to?"
You: "Joe Schmo"

Now in order to cash/deposit a check made out to "XYZ Computer Repairs" you need a business bank account under that name.

Then you're more of a hobbyist than a professional.


There are some here who think that you're not a 'real' businessperson unless you have a storefront. I set the bar at a business account and insurance. Until you have those, you're just practicing on people's computers.

I like repairing PC's as a hobby but would like to turn into cash flow.

You mean I have to have a store in able to a real business person?

I am also a stocks investor that I do from home and I don't have a store and do well. I believe a lot of things we do in life is business. Saving money and being frugal is business.

He didn't say that, he said some people believe that. His standard is insurance and a business account.
