Centrifugal Force of Market Constraints and Government that Hold You Back
What rules do you have to follow? There are so many, it’s hard to stay out of trouble with someone. Federal government, state government, and municipalities all weigh in on this. The many tax rules will not only drive you crazy, but will drive you to take actions—such as large corporations keeping their cash in foreign countries and local companies choosing to locate in special economic development zones.
You might also subscribe to working within the rules of some trade association or non-profit that you support. You might be a member of the Better Business Bureau or the local Chamber of Commerce, both of which require certain behaviors. Rather than allowing your business to accelerate and grow, these can feel like a centrifugal force holding you back and making you spin in circles.
