How unproven is that fund?

That’s not unproven at all lol If their performance has been good and their funds are >$100MM, that’s a good fund, assuming it’s not competing with the giants in SF/NYC

Not necessarily investment advice, but I am applying for an EIN for my LLC. Single member LLC, plan on doing social media and possibly some consulting work depending on the client. My question is should I file a Form 2553 to have my LLC have an S corp status? I would like to use the revenue to pay my rent or for other discretionary income outside of my 9-5 (less than 2k/mnth). So does it make sense to do a form 2553 so I can pay myself as the sole prop, deducted that payroll from taxes?
