Build a Business & Relocate Stress Free

Sep 28, 2022
Business Plan

There is something so refreshing about starting a business out of your own home. It is a chance to do what you love while also spending time with your family. However, if you find that you don’t have the space that you need to do your work, then it may be time to relocate. If you are in that situation, then we are here to help. At the National Association For The Self-Employed, we love to see people accomplish their business dreams, so we have some tips for how you can move to a bigger space while keeping your new company intact.

Create a Business Plan

Before you move, you will want to get your ducks in a row and ensure that your business gets off on the right foot. You can do that by creating a business plan. Essentially, this document will detail every component of your company and create a roadmap for what you will do to make your enterprise a success.

For instance, it will describe your product or service, how much money you will need to start production, how you will secure those funds, how many employees you will require, how you plan to market your product, and identify your target demographic. Once you have this plan written out, follow it step by step during and after your move so you can stay on track with your goals.

Look at Home Prices Before You Rent or Buy

Before you pack up all of your belongings, you will want to look at potential homes in the city where you plan to relocate. Take the time to research all of your options as you look into the square footage, amenities, and prices of the homes you like the most. You can do that by going online to websites where you will see every listing by price, size, and other parameters. Don’t rush. Take your time when looking at potential houses because you don’t want to move in and find out that the property won't work and you have to move again.

Don’t Be Afraid to Ask for Help

There is no way around it, with a move and the start of a new business, you have a lot on your plate, so don’t be afraid to ask for help. As far as relocating is concerned, consider obtaining the help of professional movers who can help to pack up your current house and move your belongings to the new property. Make sure to do your research ahead of time and read customer reviews so you know you are hiring a company that you can trust.

As far as your business is concerned, if you need funds to help get your company off of the ground both during and after the relocation, then consider looking into growth grants. These are grants that can help small business owners and veterans purchase the items that they need to succeed in a competitive market. Check out our guide, and if you meet the requirements, then apply today.

Upload Your Data to the Cloud

Another trick that you can use to ensure that your business runs smoothly during the move is to upload all of your important files, programs, and documents to the cloud. There are many different cloud computing companies, from Amazon AWS to Kamatera, and each of them will allow you to upload your information so you can access it from anywhere as long as you have an internet connection. That way, if a work emergency comes up, you can attend to it immediately. Plus, many cloud companies offer their own cybersecurity services, so you can ensure that your data is safe

As you can see, with a bit of strategy and a little help, you can move to a new home while starting a business. Consider creating a business plan, reviewing home prices, and looking into growth grants, and you will accomplish your goals.
