Permit me to talk about permits and licenses for businesses

I am convinced, technology make our life easier. Back in the old days (pre-internet), entrepreneurs had to burn shoe-leather trying to jump through all those hoops of starting a business. Unless one was lucky, a hoop was missed, wasting time and money. With all the tools available online now, we can concentrate on growing a business rather than starting it. The article “A Start-Ups’ Guide to Business Licenses & Permits – Be Compliant from the Get-Go” tells about online resources that help entrepreneurs — websites such as Permit Me that gives information specific to a business type in your city or zip code. I have tried to do this for Hickman County, Tennessee on the website, but use this has helpful information too.
