The title phrase of this post has long been regarded as one of the “three great lies.” (Along with “the check is in the mail” and “of course I'll respect you in the morning.”)
Given the highly regulated state of things in the great Garden State, visits from representatives of New Jersey government historically have struck terror into the hearts of those of us who are trying to run businesses. At long last, however, state government in NJ is helping businesses cut through the bureaucracy and red tape so they can actually get things done. No, seriously, they are.
If you have a problem with permitting, site location, financing, and the like, call the New Jersey Business Action Center. They will do their best to help. I have spoken with representatives of the Administration, and they are completely serious about this. The Center is under the supervision of the Lt. Governor and provides a “one stop shop” to assist businesses with all kinds of business related applications and approvals.
It makes sense, and it's about time. Spend a couple of minutes looking over their web site, NewJerseyBusiness.gov.
Or call them at 866-534-7789. Heck, it's even toll-free.
While they can't replaxce your team of business professionals, they can smooth the way for a more productive and efficient business experience.
