Step 3: Choose a location

Your business's location is an essential ingredient to its success. Don't rent office space just because it's convenient for you personally. Think about clients and employees as well. You wouldn't want top-notch job candidates to cross you off their list because of a long commute. And if you plan to woo clients at your offices, make sure it's as easy as possible for them to get there.

When deciding on location, consider the following questions:

Is the building zoned for your particular commercial use?

Is parking available to both employees and clients?

Is the office convenient to public transportation?

Is it within easy commuting distance of a population from which you can attract quality employees?

Is it convenient to the kind of business services you're likely to require (printers, suppliers, shippers, and the like)?

Is it in a neighborhood or region that will lend prestige to your business (for example, Beverly Hills for deluxe goods, Silicon Valley for computers and e-commerce, or Wall Street for investment banking)?

Is it convenient to restaurants, parks, or shopping so that you and your employees can spend your lunch hours pleasantly?
