It's impossible to run a business for free under Capitalism. I'm tired. 

So....convert kit is NOT actually free, they dropped this turd on me after working on their bullshit no-mobile-site-having-ass landing page all frickin day

Fuck 

This is why you need a p.o. box. When you file for an LLC you need an address in the state you're filing in, and you must publish it in a local paper. Lots of people rent p.o. boxes in Albany because it's the cheapest, and still technically in NY State. It's $90-ish per year.

Sounds manageable, but drops in a bucket add up. Web domain, email marketing, annual fees for a registered agent (non-negotiable) plus all the taxes/fees for applications, and then once you get all this shit handled, you need to pay taxes quarterly, which means more accountant fees. NY requires newly formed LLCs to publish a notice of formation in local newspapers, which can potentially cost around $1,500 or more.

I need limited liability insurance because I sell herbal teas. This could open me up for a lawsuit if someone gets sick, even if it isn't my tea that caused it. That costs between $350 to $1,000 per year.

Drops in a bucket.

This is an intentional bar to entry, by the way, just so we're clear.

My bad 

It's $6/month, not $5. In a few months it might be $7. Google is a monolith, they can do whatever tf they want
