29th Anniversary of State and Federal Communications | July Compliance Now
July 1, 2022 is the 29th anniversary of State and Federal Communications, Inc. Yes, 29 years!
I wanted to see the percentage of small businesses who are still around for 29 years. What is the average age of small business CEOs? What percentage of businesses succeed?
Let me just say we have outlasted the percentages. Most research talks about businesses around for only five years. I am far older than the average 44-year-old small business owner. Do you know 70% of small businesses fail after 10 years.
Enough of all that bad news.
The team at State and Federal Communications works together for our clients. That is the most important part of the work we do. We understand each of our clients have different needs and we work with them to help with compliance. Our website has grown and grown because we listen when our clients want additional reference information, want additional municipalities included, and adding additional countries to our growing International Guidebook.
There is a lot we need to do for the future. I am not getting any younger and I want to protect our work and our staff. So, what are we doing?
We are working together to find a new home in Akron when our lease expires in 2024 to be more efficient for the way we operate.
Our senior team will begin the EOS—Entrepreneurial Operating System—which integrates a complete set of simple tools and process to produce powerful business results.
And the largest is to plan to integrate an ESOP—employer stock ownership plan—which gives the staff ownership interest in the company.
There is a lot we need to do even before we start these programs…And we are up to the challenge. If there is something you would like to see us do, please reach out. We are open to your ideas.
Stay tuned…We will have a lot to share.
In the meantime, enjoy your summer. Please continue to be safe and protect yourself from COVID. #MaskUp
