When people open the business, they often miscalculate & underestimate their initial expenses or hidden cost.
I created the list, from my own experience, what newly open business must absolutely have for the first year.
Not just business, but anyone who plans to relocate to a new area. I was lucky enough & previous owner was kind
enough to live me some contact information, such as lawn mower they used, etc. Otherwise, It took me over a year
& "kissing" couple of "business frogs", until I was able to build a good contacts list of reliable people.
I also learned, over the years, working for private businesses, corporation & various non-profits, that, ALL of them run
based on the same principals. I believe donating to Charity & contributing to one, is a great way to preserve business
success in a future. So, this list, applies to every New Business. As "a Must". In my opinion.
In the regions with a lot weather changes, especially snow & storms, having alternative to the plane or the bus, such as
train, can be a great options. In United States, not many travel sites offer train tickets, as a primary transportation choice.
I used Amtrak in January 2021, from Sacramento, CA to Chicago, IL. It was very interesting trip, and great alternative
to the airport cancellation. I added Amtrak on my list. In America, on the West Coast in particular, trains are probably the
least common form of transportation, while cars & planes make majority.
Public transportation, such as bus or NY subway, in US has a "bad wrap", as not the safest form of transportation. I did not include any form of general public transportation under travel options. Some rides on Uber or the Lyft cost less than cup
of late grande, plus they are safer.
I selected companies for this list based on:
Knowledgeable in their field
Do they have a Valid License to operate?
How Long have they been in Business?
Do they able to answer the phones in case of an Emergency?
Do they communicate details & able to answer questions?
Being on Time
Do they give a Time Frame for Arrival?
Do they actually Arrive on time?
Do they offer a Text or Email appointment confirmation?
Do they offer online appointment booking & selection?
Do they offer online invoice pay?
Being clean & accurate
Do they Provide Installation?
Do they Clean up after the repairs? Does it cost extra?
Quality of Final Service or Product
Do they offer any type of service warranty?
Do they have a discounts for returning customers or legacy program?
REAL ESTATE & DESIGN SERVICES
You can not exist in the thin air, you need a physical address
HEALTHCARE & WELLNESS
Non-traditional healthcare, but every day necessity
MOST AFFORDABLE, YET HIGH QUALITY HOTELS
I don't like to feel uncomfortable during any travel
