New Year, New…Business?
Happy New Year! And then what?
January is the time for taking stock of where one is: physically, emotionally and financially. It is the month where more resolutions are made than any other. We make “to do“ lists that include such items as “exercising regularly”, “eating healthier”, “saving more money”, and “calling our parents more often”. What about adding, “Start my own dream business”?
Is that on YOUR resolution list in 2017?
Here at REDI, you may already know that our mission is helping businesses launch, locate and expand here in Rockville. On our website you will see testimonials from Rockville companies on why they have their businesses here. You’ll find demographic information about moving your company to our city. You’ll even find resources for Montgomery County and the state of Maryland with regard to having your company based in our region. But what if none of that answers your resolution?
If you’ve decided to start your own business and you don’t know where to start, www.RockvilleREDI.org is still the place for you to go. Did you know we devote an entire section to information on how to start your business?
We’ve even mapped out the steps for you.
