Well, this is just great.

RI, NJ and NY Ranked Worst for Small Businesses
From the New York Post:
New York's punishing taxes give it the third worst business climate of any state, a new report says...

"What I see is that New York has an overly complicated tax system," report co-author Curtis Dubay told The Post...

The only states that fared worse, according to the report, are Rhode Island, which ranked dead last, and New Jersey, which came in at 49th of the 50 states.

Wow! Who would've known that the top 3 worst states for small businesses would be RI, NJ, and NY. Being from NY, I can attest to the fact that taxes are way too high and often the reason for businesses failing. If you're unfortunate enough to live in one of those states and are trying to get by, you should check out this really cool contest that I found the other day called “Make Your Dreams Come True with Mirassou.” They are awarding one aspiring business woman $50,000 plus a team of highly professional consultants to help kick start your business. Check it out here http://www.mirassou.com/women_in_business/dreams.asp for more info and to enter. This could be the thing you need to jump start your life from freelance to supersuccess, as well as to get the advice you need to deal with those tax woes if you happen to live in RI, NJ, or NY. I work with them, so I have the inside scoop. Best of luck! Great blog Kristin!
