Hello Business Owners,
Are you working today? I hope your business is flourishing, but today I truly hope you're preparing for something good to eat, laughter, and fun with your friends and family. Life is so short. Today is a good day to enjoy as Memorial Day unofficially marks the beginning of summer time (which is a great season for our industry).
Honor, Praise, Tribute ... Thank You
On a more serious note, here's a quick cap of this important holiday and what it's really all about:
What is Memorial Day? This federal U.S. holiday is observed on the last Monday of the month of May. Previously known as "Decoration Day," it commemorates United States Service Members who died while in military service.
First enacted by formerly enslaved African-Americans to honor Civil War Union soldiers, it was extended after World War I to honor Americans who have died in all wars.
Please join me in giving honor, praise, tribute ~ and many "thank yous" to our men and women in service, then and now.
Enjoy your families today!

Tip: To locate your County Clerk's Office, GOOGLE phrases like "Your County Name" and County Clerk; or "Your City Name" and "County Clerk".
Search for Business "Licenses and Permits" Regulations by State: Every business needs one or more federal, state or local licenses or permits to operate. Licenses can range from a basic operating license to very specific permits. Regulations vary by industry, state and locality, so it's very important to understand the licensing rules where your business is located. Not complying with licensing and permitting regulations can lead to expensive fines and put your business at serious risk.

Help Devising a Zip Code List: In your effort to come up with a list of zip codes in which your company does business (or in which your company can do business), use the United States Post Office's Zip Code Finder. You can find a ZIP Code by entering an address, and you can also search for a partial address, such as "Green Street, Los Angeles, CA." Find it at this link: http://zip4.usps.com/zip4/welcome.jsp.
D-U-N-S Number Tip: Don't "pay" for a D-U-N-S Number! Some companies charge $149 and up when they box it with other services. Getting your number is free, free, free if you are signing up as a vendor on government contract registration websites.
