== Steps ==
  +
#'''Click the "Sign in/create account" link''' in the upper right corner on the Wikipedia website.[[Image:Create a Wikipedia Account Step 1 Version 2.jpg|center]]
  +
#Click the link "Create One" above the boxes. This will take you to [https://ift.tt/2WPkAGk the account creation page] (of course, if you are reading this on line, you could use this link directly instead of following step one and two).[[Image:Create an account page of Wikipedia(updated).png|center]]
  +
#Type the captcha. Wikipedia now presents people with a simple captcha to solve to prevent against computer activated programs signing up. Type it in the box below (refresh the image if you must) and move on to the next step.[[Image:Create a Wikipedia Account Step 3 Version 2.jpg|center]]
  +
#Read the text below all boxes.[[Image:Create a Wikipedia Account Step 4 Version 2.jpg|center]]
  +
#Enter your desired user name in the "Username:" box. This will be the name of your account.  For suggestions for usernames, see below.[[Image:Create a Wikipedia Account Step 5.jpg|center]]
  +
#*Scramble your real name.  No one will know.  Make it an anagram, meaning that they are words that can be rearranged to form, in this case, your real name.
  +
#*Look to social media.  If you have a social media account, you can use the same username as your social media username (if it is not taken), but you may not want to do so if you are a famous user.
  +
#*Think creatively.  Have any passions, including computers, languages, companies, etc.?  Choose a username suitable for your interests.
  +
#*Don't choose a username that promotes another business, flags you as a vandal, impersonates an admin, or is just plain annoying.  Those get blocked quickly.
  +
#Enter a [[Create a Secure Password|password]] in the "Password:" box. Make sure that you can [[Create a Password You Can Remember|remember your password]], but for it to be hard for anyone else to guess.[[Image:Create a Wikipedia Account Step 6.jpg|center]]
  +
#Re-enter the same password as above in the "Confirm Password:" box.[[Image:Create a Wikipedia Account Step 7.jpg|center]]
  +
#Enter your e-mail address in the "E-mail" box if you want to. For more information about this, see below in the "[[#Tips|Tips]]" section.[[Image:Create a Wikipedia Account Step 8.jpg|center]]
  +
#Click the big "Create account" button.[[Image:Create a Wikipedia Account Step 9.jpg|center]]
  +
#Congratulations! You are now a registered user in Wikipedia![[Image:Create a Wikipedia Account Step 10.jpg|center]]
   
A person wanting to set up a business has to consider what legal form the organisation should take. A business also known as an enterprise or a firm is an organization involved in the provision of goods and services, to consumers to achieve a collective goal and make profits.

== Video ==
• Goods are items that be used of consumed. Example food, cars, books
+
• Services is an offering for someone to carry out a task for you. Example fixing dinner, getting a haircut at the barber
+
 
• A consumer is an individual who purchase goods that are produced or used services provided in an economy

== Tips ==
• Producers are individuals or organizations that produce goods for customers or consumer as a whole,

*By creating a Wikipedia account in any language, you can use the same login info for any other languages and Wikimedia project.
    People start their own business for many reasons. These reasons are as follows:
+
*The e-mail is there to enable for other registered users to contact you via e-mail and for password recovery. Wikimedia Foundation, the host of Wikipedia.
 Income Potential
+
*If your IP is blocked, or you cannot complete the CAPTCHA, then request an account at accounts.wmflabs.org.
 Pursuing a Passion
+
*If you wish to create an account in a non-English Wikipedia, but still read the text in English in the Wikipedia, here is good information: in the login page (not the create an account page, but the page before this), there is often a row with the "Other languages" in the language of Wikipedia. The language name is written in the language (for example, English is written English, French is written Fran├žais). If you click your language, the text will be changed to the language.
 A Good Idea
+
*There are many advices regarding proper user name. It is stated in the "Steps" section, but again, please read these '''before''' you create an account. If you do not follow the advices, you may be blocked from editing Wikipedia.
 A NEW lifestyle
+
*An account that is '''auto-confirmed''' can upload files and edit semi-protected pages. An account is auto-confirmed after four days (plus 10 edits) from registering.
 Self-expression
+
*If you do not want to leave out your E-mail address, you can create a new one, for instance at [[Use Gmail|Gmail]].
 Create Employment
+
 
 Make Profits
+
== Warnings ==
When you start your own business, you have the opportunity to earn an unlimited income based on your own efforts and the success or failure of the enterprise. This differs from working for a company, where your income may be limited by a salary structure or the evaluation of your performance by your superiors. Starting your own business allows you to make a living while pursuing something for which you have a strong

*Remember that once your account is created, it '''cannot''' be deleted. If you decide to abandon your old account due to privacy issues, simply create a new account without establishing connection to the old one. Be careful to see if your old account hasn't got any sanctions such as blocks or bans, because if you create a new account and display the same editing behavior, then you run the risk of having your new account blocked.
  +
*Think carefully through if you want to use your real name as user name. Remember that anyone with access to the Internet will have access to your name.
  +
*'''''Never''''' give your password to anyone. If someone takes control of your account, you probably can not prove this and therefore, you are most likely responsible for what the person who took control of your account did using it.
