Mindfulness & Controlling Stress in Business
The holidays are over and it’s back to business. Owning a business means constant pressure to grow, meet payroll, deal with health insurance decisions, be involved in the community and comply with laws and regulations — some that you may not even be aware existed.
Enter your local Chamber of Commerce. We’ve got your back.
We can ease your mind and remove stress when it comes to business compliance with local government and new state legislation. It’s so important to know you have a Chamber that is advancing the business friendly climate of this region on your behalf.
We understand what it means to own, manage and successfully run a business. While you’re busy growing your business, making products and services better, meeting deadlines — all while juggling family responsibilities and hopefully caring for your health — let our team of experienced individuals cover local regulations and new state legislation on your behalf. We’ll keep you apprised of what you need to know to do business in Brevard County..
Often times, small business owners don’t know what they don’t know, especially in the 2020 world of technology in which we live. If you are a contractor with the Department of Defense, you have cyber security compliance levels that are unprecedented, with the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification body being approved and ready to begin assessments.
If you are building a home, are you aware that due to the shortage of skilled labor in construction that it might take up to nine months currently to build a mid-level home? We’re working to fill that gap of skilled labor. How about your lower-wage employees — how are they making it to work on time, although they likely live farther away from your facility than your higher paid workers? Public transportation funding and workforce/affordable housing are issues we are working to address with your local and state bodies of government.
Beyond those issues are even larger issues facing most, if not all, communities across our state and nation. When massive problems arise that have far-reaching impacts on every community stakeholder — for instance environmental concerns plaguing a local body of water, it is the power of the united voice that becomes the impetus for action. Add your voice to your local chamber and be heard. And allow your local chamber to speak on your behalf, in your favor, and you will surely reap the positive rewards.
Partner with your local chamber when it comes to speaking up for business friendly regulations and laws, and put your mind at ease.
