It took me 4 months to get around to it, mostly because of being super duper busy all the live long day! But I finally took Miny Moe to the next level, i.e. being official and legal with the law! I decided to go with a sole proprietorship because at the level we're at now, it's not worth the extra effort and expenses of going for an LLC. So, all there was left to do was register a Business Certificate with the Kings County Clerk's office for "Doing Business As" Miny Moe. Cost me a whopping $120 and a venture to the Supreme Court in Brooklyn Heights (carrying 20 pound Kenzo in his Mei Tai wrap... so heavy.....).
Basically, you purchase the Blumberg X201 form ("Business Certificate"), fill it out, and have it notarized all at a little kiosk across the street for $14, or was it $16? Shoot, now that I think of it, I didn't get a receipt. Damnit...
Then you march over to the court house which is all big and intimidating, go through their metal detectors, downstairs and to a series of counters: you hand in your certificate one place, pay at another, and pick up the your certified copies at another. I was SHOCKED at how un-busy it was. It literally took me 5 minutes to proceed through the stations. I asked if it was always so quiet and they said yes, so I made some joke about it being the easiest government office I've ever been to and they chose good in working here and not the DMV! LOL.

In other Miny Moe news, I'm working on starting collaborations with some great baby planners and maternity concierge companies. What's that you ask? Will have a guest post coming soon to tell you all about it!
I've also just added a custom pack - $10.99 for 10 diapers mixed and matched as you like from any of the 7 brands in any of the 3 sizes we carry!! So, if you don't want to bother with all 6 brands in the regular pack, but just want to try out a couple of the budget brands, or if you want to see if the greener brands are worth the hype, this is the pack for you!
