This is the million dollar question! How do I form my business? Which one is the best one? And what is the difference? Many mental health entrepreneurs prefer to start out as a PLLC (a form of LLC). The PLLC indicates it is a Professional Limited Liability Company and is the designation required for clinicians in Texas. I am not sure about other states, however, so I advise that you check with a business attorney familiar with your specific state requirements. Since I am NOT an attorney, I'd rather give you access to information from an attorney regarding the differences between these two types of formation. Of course, there are other types of business formations such General Partnerships, Corporations, and Limited Liability Partnerships , however, Mental Health Entrepreneurs typically choose between LLC (PLLC) and Solo Proprietorship.
