    Starting an online business (OPT holder with H1B approved)

      Hi guys


      I need advise. I am planning to create my own online business where I will sell peruvian foods but I am wondering about my immigration status. I am working right now in New Jersey, USA with my OPT and my H1B application was approved. Thus, I would like to know if I can register my business right now with the OPT or I have to wait until October 1, 2008 to receive my H1B visa.

      If I am the only one who will manage the business can I have problems with my H1B? because I read other posts saying that H1B holder cannot be paid from the company.

      Please help me

      Thank you for your time
