ACC 220 Week 2 CheckPoint Proprietorships, Partnerships, & Corporations The task of beginning a new business can be a challenging one. If I were starting a new  business, I would carefully weigh the advantages and disadvantages of sole proprietorship,  partnership, and corporation to determine which of them fits best into my overall business idea.   The term 'sole proprietorship' is used to refer to a business that has only one owner.  Businesses that have sole proprietorship are relatively inexpensive and easy to start, and the  decision making can take place according to the abilities of the owner. The owner of a sole  proprietorship receives all business profits; however, he/she will be legally liable for all risks,  debts, and obligations associated with the business. Businesses that have sole proprietorship  are limited in terms of ability to raise capital and expand.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
