Relocating a Business in Georgia: A Military Family's Journey

But, like you, I'll definitely need to get involved in some other groups or organizations to get the word out there. Thanks for the advice!

We are a military family and my dh will be retireing in Feb. We are planning on buying a house in Georgia. Has anyone moved their business. How long did it take you to get restarted?
 
We moved, but only about 20 miles away, so that wasn't a big deal. But, there was a workshop on this at conference!! I believe they'll be making all conference workshop topics available on CD, so you may want to keep your eyes open for that. It would definitely be worth the money to purchase one. I don't think they're expensive, maybe $5 or something.

Thanks for the info!!! I'll look for that. I wish our move was just 20 miles! Hawaii to Georgia is a big move!
 
movedi did i moved from Utah to Nevada (3-4 hrs) and i have been doing ok im finally starting to pick up business, i have been doing 2 shows a month and really hope to get more on Tues, I also moved after my 1st super starter month. What I did was i talked to a lady in my church and I mentioned PC and she said she loved PC so I asked her to host a party for me and she did and it helped me to get to know the people in my area, plus i did get bookings off of her show :)
 
Hi Christy - we are a military family too. What branch are you? My husband is getting out of the army in alittle less than a year (woohoo!) and we are moving back to Texas (near family) from Oklahoma. So I'll be starting my business in a new area too. But I do know alot people in the area we are moving to so I am not as nervous about it. Anyway, my advice to you would be to get involved in the wives clubs or FRG groups. That will be a great way to get to know people and to spread the word about a PC consultant living near them! Hope the move goes smoothly...Hawaii to Georgia is a huge move! Good luck!!

My dh is a Marine. I'm very involved in our wives group here which has helped a lot with my business. But since he will be retiring I wont have that when we move. I'll be teaching there so hopefully that will help with contacts.
