Question: What is Business As Usual in Florida?

As a business owner who travels quite a bit, I’m often asked about the business climate in Florida and Tampa Bay. I keep my eyes on news and online conversations to stay up-to-date on what others outside of our region perceive as “business as usual.” Often on Twitter, what surfaces is mostly clichés or complaints. But recently, Florida ranked highly on some pretty prestigious lists.


I think there is another story to tell that validates the work being done by our city, county and state economic development organizations. So, let’s start a new conversation, a positive one that portrays a positive Florida business climate. Join us at #CRBusinessAsUsual.
