Turning your DBA into an LLC (limited liability company) is a fairly easy process that can be done yourself or with the help of an attorney or business formation service.

Converting your business to an LLC separates your personal assets from your business assets, providing you personal liability protection.

As long as you are operating as a DBA or Sole Proprietorship, your personal assets are at risk should someone sue your business or should your business face hardships and owe money.

Each State has their own forms and state fees for changing from a DBA or Sole Proprietorship to an LLC, but the transition process is pretty similar in each State.
