Boosting Your Business


While you’re moving, it’s only going to be natural that your company will need to slow its momentum down a bit. This isn’t to say you have to stop growing or working, but you should expect to be going at a gentler pace than when you’re not also juggling a major move in your personal life. However, that makes this a great time to work on planning for your business’s future.


Think about what kind of moves you should make in order for your business to thrive down the line. For example, you might want to consider creating a limited liability company. Setting up an Idaho LLC for your business can protect your assets from litigation and bring tax benefits as well. Many business owners choose to hire a formation service to file so they can keep their focus on running their company.   


Finding a Home


While you’re looking toward your business’s future, however, you should be thinking about how to find your perfect home. If this will be your first time owning your own house, take time to research the process. Buying a home is more complicated than many first-timers anticipate. This is one reason why it’s so important to work with an experienced agent. Rebecca Van Camp can help walk you through the trickier parts of home buying so you feel confident in your decisions.


Before you start searching in earnest, you should reach out to your bank to get pre-approved for a mortgage. This is a process wherein the bank confirms you’re able to get a certain type of loan and gives you a letter stating as much. You’ll need this letter when making offers: Pre-approvals have become pretty standard, and you’re not likely to find a buyer willing to move forward on an offer without one.


Packing and Moving


Once you’ve found your next home, it’s time to organize your move. Starting early is a smart decision for anyone, but it’s an absolute must for business owners. You’re going to be pretty busy throughout your whole move, so you need to give yourself plenty of time to knock everything out. Start packing a month in advance, and pack items from least used to most. Set aside essential items for a clearly marked “open first” box you can use right away in your new home.


You should also consider hiring movers for your actual moving day. Yes, you can ask friends or family to do it for you, but you run several risks that route. First, your loved ones might not really have the strength to get the job done, and you could wind up with some getting injured. You also run the risk of having broken items, and no recourse should that occur. Professionals are also fast and efficient, and you’re not going to wind up angry with your best friend for misplacing the box with all your favorite mugs. It’s just cleaner.


We hope these tips help you plan an efficient move while keeping your budding business growing as well. We know how stressful this time can be, but with the right approach, you’re sure to handle your move like the pro you are!
