What is the State of Your State? Business Friendly?

Big Red Car here, as usual. Going to be a nice day in the ATX, as usual.

What about the status of Texas?

On Earth as it is in Texas! Why not?

Texas is one of the best business environments in the United States.

Don’t take my word for it — though you can never go wrong listening to a 1966 Chevy Impala convertible — I’v seen a lot of stuff in my day, y’all. Believe me.

Take a look at this report from Thumbtack.com which provides a wealth of information about the best and worst environments for business by state and city.

Thumbtack.com Report

It is very illuminating and it has been around for a long enough period of time that it can capture the trends. Remember: “The trend is your friend. Get acquainted.”

OK, that’s it for this addition of The Musings of the Big Red Car. Homework assignment — look at the report and see if you agree.

One last thing — if you are getting ready to start a business, why not go somewhere that is “friendly” to business? Why not?

But, hey, what the Hell do I really know anyway? I’m just a Big Red Car. Be kind to someone you really love — like yourself, mirror mad man.

        It is important for state officials to know how their state is perceived. In many instances, they are clueless.

        I remember a tale that Gov Rick Perry was told that it was taking a couple of months to get a drilling permit from the Railroad Commission (the oil regulatory entity in Texas).

        He feigned ignorance but he said it shouldn’t take more than 48 hours to get a drilling permit if your paperwork was in order.

        Voila — it takes 48 hours or less to get a drilling permit in Texas.

        He didn’t know. He learned. He changed it. Texas does not have a friendly business environment by accident.
