Something that really jumped out at us from this infographic about small business in the US: The average cost and time it takes to start a business. $325 and 6 days on average?
That sounds like an awfully low estimate, especially when you consider certain industries with notoriously high startup costs and regulations that draw out the time it takes to get the business off the ground.
Another interesting bit from the infographic was the percentage of small businesses that are run entirely from home: 54%. As virtual receptionist and call answering service providers, we know that many of our clients run home-based businesses, but we also work with a lot of law firms and medical offices.
We’re interested to find out how many of you actually run your business from home–would you take a second to tweet @conrecept if you run your business from home?
