Make no mistake – there is even more business going on in Las Vegas than people visiting may believe. All of those hotels, shows, and casinos depend upon it. In fact, starting a new business in Vegas still requires an infrastructure that says you are serious and established to prospective clients. No matter what business you happen to be in.
But entrepreneurs, as well as businesses desiring to expand will find that like anywhere else worth being in the country, it costs a pretty penny to get set up. The cost of renting space is one of the biggest bugaboos to get past. Add to that the cost of an assistant, office supplies, and equipment, and that nice office address becomes so far from affordable it can make you want to pack up your toys and go home. And many people do – as in work from home. Read more... top ▲
It may sound corny, but it’s true – Chicago is my kind of town. It’s also a lot of other people’s kind of town. While it’s far cheaper to live and work there than the west or east coast, that’s not saying much.
Especially when it comes to business. The money grubbing Illinois government charges such a fortune in business taxes that many have gone screaming off to Wisconsin. Maybe that’s why so many of their governors wind up in the slammer. Not that corruption doesn’t exist everywhere, but Illinois enjoys the distinction of having the most of their fearless leaders in jail – to the tune of 4 of its last 7 governors!
But it’s true what they say about the Midwest. When I was downtown once, I stood on a street struggling with a map. Someone walked up and instantly helped me. And no, it wasn’t a vendor who wanted my money. Turns out, everyone was so helpful that I never did need to look at that map. Read more... top ▲
I must admit I love evolution. Well, maybe not the Darwinian kind exactly, but usually evolution pertains more to forward thinking. Take, for instance – the cloud. For those who’ve been living under a rock (sad, but true), the cloud is where it’s at in terms of business. That’s slightly ironic since it’s in cyberspace, hence where is it really located? Oh, that’s right. In the heavens. Good place for it in my book. Beats battling the traffic!
But, seriously, for any small business, success is going to depend heavily upon how well the company is managed. And that includes that magical term, efficient – challenging for any business, let alone ones with limited resources.
Most would agree that it takes a lot of moxy and a great deal of time and money to start and operate a business. What investors care about – and that includes the owners themselves (they are investors too – in fact, the biggest ones) – is that there is a high chance of turning a profit. Read more... top ▲
One of the things I love most about Atlanta is how progressive it has become – especially when it comes to new business. In fact, startup companies are so welcomed in Atlanta that they even have a contest for them! The Startup Atlanta contest is designed to attract and help new business owners get started. It’s a grand idea, especially since it is so expensive to do business anywhere these days.
But how can a new startup enter a contest when they don’t even have an office? That’s simple. Get a virtual office! For around $50 bucks a month, I get a snazzy business address where I get my mail and packages and even have them forwarded to me for a little extra. They have a receptionist and a live person answer calls and take messages or forward calls to where ever I happen to be. Read more... top ▲
Los Angeles is one of the main business hubs in the country – if not the world. As part of the big three – New York, Chicago, and L.A. – there is no mistaking its importance. The sheer breadth of types of businesses in the region is astonishing. One of the main reasons entrepreneurs are attracted to the city is its progressive attitude.
However, it is still enormously expensive for any startup to think about setting up shop in L.A. So much so that some just decide to go elsewhere. But for those companies who will rely upon the entertainment industry or weather-based tourism, it won’t do much good to go elsewhere.
This is where virtual offices can provide just the type of solution necessary to get a new business off the ground. Both literally and figuratively. Because a nice business office with an established address runs merely $60 near the downtown area. Compared to what it costs just to rent an office there, that is an unbelievable bargain.

Some people think that a virtual office just exists online or uses technology. While it does use those aspects, the term also applies to services offering professional business addresses in a prime location. Having business addresses for mail and marketing also adds credibility to companies.
These services can include receptionists and administrative assistants, lobby and directory listings, mail forwarding, and access to day offices and conference rooms as well. The business support centers and resident agent services are helpful for companies of all sizes. They even offer virtual assistants with state of the art technology services and even catering!

Virtual communication solutions include everything a company needs to get started and grow, such as:
- Local and toll free telephone and fax numbers
- Digital voicemail
- Electronic fax
- Fax to email
- Online command centers
- Unified messaging
- Voice and video conferencing
There are many reasons people flock to Miami. The weather is to die for, the culture is diverse and it is just — well, cool. Some of the biggest celebs have been drawn to the region, from the rich to the notorious: Gloria Estefan, Jennifer Lopez, Madonna, Rosie O’Donnell, Hulk Hogan, Lenny Kravitz, Matt Damon, Sylvester Stallone, Robin Gibb, Shaquille O’Neal, and fashion icon Gianni Versace.
Before O.J. Simpson became a full-time resident of Lovelock Correctional Center in Nevada, he ran off to Miami when he was no longer welcome in the tony Brentwood neighborhood on the west side of L.A.
The only other place that seems to have as many celebs is L.A. But Miami is said to be more accessible than Los Angeles. In fact, Barry Gibb of music group Bee Gees fame also lives in Miami and is said to be quite welcoming. Although… that could be because he comes from the U.K. Read more... top ▲
