I’ve never written in but feel compelled to share our recent development.
Human Companies is a small business-support company that provides mostly bookkeeping services (humanbookkeeping.com) on a national basis. We are in the process of expanding our service offering significantly, both in scope and geography, through licensing and franchising our operation. As such, our plan is to sell our first franchise in the coming months and have decided to do so out-of-state.
While we will continue to keep our headquarters here in Asheville, a city dear to us, we will move our U.S. operations to Colorado with its more progressive policies. Our workforce telecommutes, so the choice is somewhat easy. While no place is perfect in its policies, North Carolina is painting itself into a corner as the laughingstock of the United States — nationally manifesting its insecurities on the larger stage.
I look forward to the day when I open The New York Times and find our gorgeous state more properly represented than crude bathroom humor that I find far from funny.
Best of luck in retaining more of our earnings at a future date based on performance!
