Is It Too Late to Change My, or Your Direction?

This is such a time of change with addition and subtractions and keeping it between the lines and veering wildly off the road to avoid a big pothole (and falling in potholes I don’t see coming) and putting new tires on the car, (while saving the best of the four as backups) – that I feel compelled to comment on it, as sort of a relief valve but also as the first volley in a bonding exercise.
 

Tallahassee ranked as 5th best real estate market in US and top 100 to do business

Who would have thought that Tallahassee could go from being named the pot-smoking capital of the US to one of the best places in the country to do business? Yes, it is true -- and not for the reasons that the previous outlandish award might suggest.

An article posted in the Democrat identified several independent surveys that named Tallahassee as a great place to live, invest and work.

Qualifying Your Clients For a Happier Business

By Deanna Mims, Owner
MarketDone
I’m speaking from experience in my business MarketDone.  As a service provider, it is important to qualify your clients to avoid wasting time and money, and to build the kind of business you envisioned.
When you first meet – perhaps over a free consultation – the questions you should ask your potential client to determine if they are your next perfect client include:
  1. What exactly do they offer?
  2. What the tangible and intrinsic benefits are?

National Small Business week

I love living the United States for one reason above all others --  our appreciation for small businesses. Being an entrepreneur is not an easy thing to do well that is for sure. At the same time, the effort spent in developing a small business offers financial and spiritual rewards that are second to none.  The readers may already be aware that most of the jobs in this country are created by small businesses. Every year the federal government recognizes small business owners  for the American Dream alive!!

Small business week is coming in May, learn more by visiting the National Small Business Week Web site. Get involved! Reach out to your senators to continue their support for tax incentives, education, grants and resources for small businesses!!

Small business killer

The Florida Legislature has finally demonstrated what it thinks about small business.  Free markets for small business? No.  Encourage small business development? Certainly not.  Less government? Yes, smaller and more powerful committees that will not necessarily act in the best interest of their constituents.
