Tips and Happenings for Business Owners in Chattanooga
Chattanooga has recently been dubbed one of the best places to start a business due to low startup costs. Places that offer these low costs and business help or coaching, such as a business incubator, may require you to have and submit a business plan, limit your terms of occupancy and may want a piece of your business earnings for having supported your company from start-up. What about growth and sustainability beyond start up? Incubators are solely interested in your beginning, which is perfectly great.
Five reasons, is one reason a part of your business life?
At home, piles of laundry and dishes in the sink will stare you down. Or if your kids are home, there’s sure to be noise and bustle. Working from home also blurs the lines between relaxation and actual work.
At coffee shops, hipsters mingle, customers are in and out, and that frappe blender is a blendin. It can be hard to concentrate, have phone conversations, or meet with clients in spaces that aren’t separate from life’s daily excitement. Have you also noticed that Wi-Fi at coffee shops is slow or cuts you off right in the middle of that important “something”?
