I just put it in the mailbox. I will soon know if I can run my lip balm business under the assumed name of Osmosis.
A preliminary check shows no other businesses in MN with the name Osmosis... so chances are great that I'll be able to use it.
I just need to be patient now and wait for word from the Secretary of State. Then I have to run the info in the legal section of the newspaper for 2 consecutive issues.
After that, I can apply for my tax ID and then I should be able to accept your orders!
Thank you for being so patient while I work through all these legalities :)
