Charlotte Business Opportunities Keep The Queen City Going
I live in Charlotte, NC, and I can literally see the growth of my city every time I look out my office window—there are more cars on Providence Road than there used to be, and it seems like the traffic gets worse every day.
I could complain about it. Maybe that’s what I am doing now, but there’s plenty to be happy about, too. Because Charlotte business opportunities are everywhere.
With so many people moving to the Queen City (Charlotte’s nickname), the chance of making a connection with someone goes up. It’s the law of averages. Say I want to find an employee with a certain skill set, or a professional I could form a business relationship with. If I can talk to 100 people, I have a better chance of success than if I only talk to 10 people.
And it’s not just numbers, either. It’s the mix of people, people from all over the country, of all ages. That means any kind of market you can think of is here, whether you’re reaching out to young families, college students, or retirees. There are people in all different fields, and all stages of their careers, too. There are attorneys, CPA’s, business people, mentors, prospects in droves. Looking to build an existing business with people from your hometown of, say, Pittsburgh? They are here. Looking to make new connections with former West Coasters like yourself? I’ll introduce you to my neighbors.
And since so many of these people are recent arrivals, they’re still finding their way around, still very open to making new relationships. Everyone is looking to connect.
When I moved to Charlotte, I felt it was going to get big. If I could have bought stock in a city, 15 or 20 years ago, Charlotte would have been my pick. Instead, I started a business here. I like to think business owners like me are one of the factors that make it a good place to be. And the more people who establish themselves here, the more the investment pays dividends in Charlotte business opportunities. That’s good for me, it’s good for the people I work with, and it’s good for everyone in town.
Despite the traffic.
