When creating my own business she threaten me with saying we had a verbal agreement that I cannot open a competing business in our city. 1) we never had a contract anything 2) I was a minor and left due to being kicked out before 18.Next would be about the events I have done with her company, when creating my website she saw I listed events I did with her company. She told me this was illegal and will press charges if I do not take down. So to appease her I took it down .I recently have had some of my pictures named fabulous faces princess party, her business name is ***** ***** by "her name"She messaged me telling me I have her business name on her website and she will press charges of I do not remove fabulous faces princess parties.Her name is ***** ***** as fabulous faces by "her name" and llc fabulous faces "her name" llc.So is me naming pictures what I did illegal?Once I removed to appease her.

I want to operate the websites as part of the S corp, instead of setting up a separate companies for each of websites.

DBA ABC Truck Driving School (Certified Programs above $2500)2. DBA ABC Truck Driving Rental Company (Non-Certified Programs below $2500)Also, if this is possible, does the governing body that certifies us have to recognize the DBA's as separate entities?
