How to organize a street business in the USA: a website with instructions for entrepreneurs was launched in California
To become a successful street vendor, you need to have the necessary permits, health certificates and a good understanding of how to manage your money. Where to start, reports ABC7.
К счастью, the Los Angeles public library system created website to help.
The website has been live for a year and includes everything you need to know to become a successful street vendor. You can find short videos about running a business in English and Spanish.
Madeleine Ildefonso, manager of the city's public library system, said several hundred vendors have already used the website and its services.
“We worked directly with street vendors to develop this program. It includes recorded presentations on how to get all the permits, California health certificates, California sellers permits, City of Los Angeles business tax permits,” she explained.
In addition to managing your business, the website also provides guidance on how to defuse tense situations. More and more street vendors are becoming victims of crime, including violent attacks and robberies.

“It's really more about what the trends are for staying on the street using the principles of bystander intervention. You will understand your situation very well,” Ildefonso said. “You will know when to say something or when to take a step back.”
There are about 50 microbusinesses, or street vendors, in Los Angeles, according to the Economic Roundtable.
The beauty of the website, Ildefonso said, is that anyone in Southern California can access and use the information. She said her website has also been approached by sellers from all over the country.
