A Look at Small Business Incorporating in Florida
The choice to incorporate a small business in Florida has several advantages. Corporations are separate legal entities and, as such, the corporation rather than individual owners pay both the taxes and the liabilities. If you are thinking of running (or are currently running) a small business, incorporating in Florida might be a good idea because you would no longer held personally liable if your business suffered a downturn.
Small business incorporating in Florida also means that you do get to enjoy the perks and incentives that come with running a small business. For example, businesses in the technology sector and certain manufacturing sectors can qualify for grants if they are deemed to be beneficial towards national defense. Additionally, the U.S. Small Business Administration might qualify you for one of its loan programs.
With regard to Florida's general business climate, the state offers very good tax advantages. For example, Florida does not tax corporate income on subchapter S-corporations and state personal income. There additionally is no corporate franchise tax on capital stock, no state-level property tax assessed, no property tax on business inventories, no property tax on goods-in-transit (up to 180 days), and no sales and use tax on goods manufactured or produced in Florida for export outside the state. In addition, there is no sales tax on purchases of raw materials that are incorporated in a final product for resale, no sales/use tax on boiler fuels, and last but not least, there is no "sales" or "use" tax on co-generation of electricity.
Some specific industries receive additional support in Florida. For example, the Florida Aerospace Finance Corporation (FAFC) is a valuable resource for Florida-based businesses in the aerospace sector. The FAFC was created to expand aerospace business opportunities within the state. This entity promotes Florida as "The Place for Space" by providing direct loans and innovative financing strategies for small aerospace businesses.
These are just a few examples of the business supports in place to help a small business grow in Florida.

Secrets to Washing Fleets of Trucks from a Nationwide Fleet Washing Service
Washing the exterior of a truck. Sounds easy right? Well, it's not really. When you soap a truck, it is very important that you are careful to soap around all the handles, turn signal lights, steps, and wipers. You want to soap all that stuff by hand. Use a one-foot by one foot lamb's wool square-not a mitt, they don't work well. You can use a brush for the rest of the truck, but you have to get in around the handles and stuff by hand. There is no shortcut if you wish to maintain quality.
Pressure Washing and Hospital Accounts
Most pressure washing companies never look into some of the best niche markets. One, which you may not have thought about is Hospitals and if you run a pressure washing company it can mean good steady income. When contract cleaning you must figure out the needs of your clientele; Hospitals have special needs, which are not common to other businesses and if you are careful to address these needs you will be well served. One recommendation I give pressure washing companies is to bundle services. This does two things; 1.) It prevents price wars with low bidders or first time entrants into the industry and 2.) It enhances the monthly invoices for services rendered.
SBIR vs STTR
SBIR vs. STTR: If you are participating in the SBIR program you may also want to consider participating in the Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Program. The STTR program is considered SBIR's twin sister, although there are some added hoops one must jump through in order to participate. Like SBIR, the STTR is the US Government's way of providing "seed" money to spawn technology growth. The key difference however is in the structure of the effort, whereas a small business must partner (via a subcontract) to a university or non-profit research institution in order to acquire STTR funding.

Challenging the Gospel of Growth -- Must Business Grow to Survive?
A cherished business doctrine is that growth must be a primary business purpose: "grow or perish" is a mostly unquestioned truth. At South Mountain we favor certain kinds of growth, but not expansion for its own sake, which author Edward Abbey described as "the ideology of the cancer cell." We embrace growth to achieve specific goals, but always with consideration of the consequences: it may disrupt and endanger treasured qualities. We look for ways to develop and thrive without enlarging, thereby holding to limited growth. When we grow, it is by intention rather than in response to demand. We think about "enough" rather than "more"-enough profits to retain and share, enough compensation for all, enough health and well-being, enough time to give our work the attention it deserves, enough communication, enough to manage, enough headaches.
