It took quite a long time to get the corporation to go through (see processing times). The trick was to hire a courier in Sacremento to submit the articles of incorporation directly in person so that we could take advantage of the expedited processing. It took us a while to figure that out, but now that the articles went through, we are officially a corporation!

We should be moving to a new site soon, and with it doing a little redesign of the look and feel. Keep your eye on

This has been a long time coming. When my wife and I first filed for a sole proprietorship back in October of 2006 I thought (correctly) that I would be doing the work, and my wife Chantal would be doing the books. As our daughters got a little bit older Chantal started verturing out into the world of consulting as well. These days she is doing almost as much consulting as I am. However – and herein lies the rub – she does not consult in the field of software. Instead, her consulting is all in the field of Bioengineering. It obviously makes sense to use the same tax EIN, but it doesn’t make sense for her to do business as a company with software in the title. Our tax guy said that the time had come for us to upgrade to a corporation instead of a sole proprietorship, so we used the opportunity to change our name from “Brain Hz Software” to “Brain Hz Consulting, Inc.” We got approval to use the name and I reserved the domain. Today, we officially filed for a C-corp with the secretary of state. As soon as that goes through we are going to switch over to the new site.
