Google my business, etc. directories. I did check with SFI's search tool, which always something to educate us about. But I did not find anything on this topic. In twenty years, I am fairly certain it has been brought up a time or two. So, I assume it is not necessary.
I did a generic search for #affiliate marketing required business license or something like that. I found some of the posts/articles were saying it might be necessary in your local area. Others saying not at the beginning when you are not making much monies. I imagine how much is "making much" is up for discussion. I will use this as a rule of thumb for me. Certainly no recommendation to you. If I am making more per month than I have made in my 9-5 job, then certainly I should give back.
The number one thing that I knew before from other business venture/educating moments, is to protect personal assets. All of the reading I just did said the same thing. For obvious reasons, I cannot recommend how you would get licensed. I am not a lawyer. I guess we have to continue to educate ourselves about this topic.
For more information, reach out to your local business centers in your local communities.
I have several new people on my team. I am going to be posting some recognitions in the duly named category.

DID YOU KNOW?
Most days I log in between 3PM and 4PM EST/EDT. I am here to challenge you in games or for questioning as shown above. I want a strong team with strong minded people that believe in themselves. Self driven, but know when to reach out for help. Do things as it fits their lifestyles. Don't spend what you don't have, unless you can move things around to build up your SFI business without hurting your family.
