Make sure to get all the proper documents and paperwork to start your business. Business License, LLC, EIN Number, etc…anyone can open a business, but with proper paperwork your business is now official. 9. Poolside Cooking was a GOD movement. It started through the pandemic. The show now airs on WGNT27 in Hampton roads, CW12 in Richmond and Roku worldwide. The show is not just a cooking show but a variety show. We highlight different business owners, politicians, non profit organizations and more. We also close the show out with a local artist performing. What makes the show special and unique is that out of all the cooking shows that air on TV, no one has a cooking show cooking poolside. We became the first in the United States to air a cooking/variety show by the POOL on the outdoor Kitchen! 10. I thank god for allowing me to open these business. The key now is to KEEP IT. My daughter and I will continue to PROVIDE and BUILD a wonderful service in our community. But most importantly…continue teaching and being an example for the next generation of upcoming Entrepreneurs!
