When you consider the weather and attractions, its not shocking that Florida was one of
the most-moved-to states in 2021. Maybe you’re already a Florida resident but are
relocating to a new city. No matter where you’re moving, you don’t have to put your
business dreams on hold. Here are a few tips that can help you more effectively juggle these
Become a Time-Management Expert
Develop a schedule, especially if you don't have one already. On your schedule, include time
to pack your belongings, handle any processes associated with home buying, and manage
your business. For instance, during the day, focus on your family, current job, and moving.
In the evening, set aside time for your business. If you need to make phone calls, you might
need to switch this up a bit.
Besides scheduling, you also need to get organized. Paperwork laying on the table for your
business and half-filled moving boxes on the floor can add to the stress of moving and
starting a company. Unfortunately, stress can make achieving your goals more difficult. By
staying organized, though, you can feel more in control, which ultimately equates to
accomplishing more. Consider creating short-term and long-term to-do lists to stay organized. Be sure to stay
focused on one task at a time rather than jumping back and forth.
Know the Home Buying Process Well
If this is your first time buying a home, get to know each step. First, you need to establish a
budget, which you can do by comparing your debt-to-income ratio. Before you start
shopping around, it helps to have a preapproval letter. This makes the process go more
quickly and smoother.
Next, identify your wants and needs. Think about whether you want to invest time and
money into a fixer-upper or would rather have something move-in ready. Keep your
business in mind because you might not have time or money to invest in both endeavors
While buying as-is could initially save you money, the repairs and remodels could cost you more in the end. For this reason, consult with a lawyer and have the property inspected. It also helps to look at the land records so you don't receive an unpleasant surprise.
Now, comes the fun part — house shopping. It could be in your best interest to have an
agent, especially when you’re making an offer and closing on the house.
Simplify Business Management
Divide your time as smartly as possible. One way to do this is by making business
management easier. For instance, establish a company type that most suits your needs,
with taxes and personal liability in mind. Moreover, if you plan on taking on investors, it's
simpler with a corporation. Plus, most people find a corporation to be less risky.
You can establish your business type online or on your own to avoid costly attorney fees.

Make Multitasking Easier Any Way You Can
Relocating and starting a business are both difficult in their own ways, but you can make
both tasks easier with time management and organization.
