The Small Business & Entrepreneurship Council created an index that measures that are the most and least friendly to small businesses. South Dakota was named number in the country.
The least small business friendly, after the District of Columbia, are, in order, New Jersey, California, Rhode Island, Maine, Minnesota, New York, Hawaii and Massachusetts.
What does mean for small business owners in New Yorkers? It maybe time to move! (Just kidding!) Well, I think it absolutely important to ask questions and learn from others who are also entrepreneurs. You can read all the books on starting a business, but the practical truth is that you will not know until you take the plunge. Sharing information wwith others and leveraging knowledge can save you time and money.
