Acquiring 10 licenses / registrations ensures that the business is legal

Many small business owners are unaware of the license procedures that are required for operating their business. The license for a business depends on various factors like the type of the business, the regulations, and policies imposed by the government and the area in which they are planning to start the business. The license is a legal permit given by the local government to the company that indicates that it runs an authorized business and it is not only applicable to the new business, but even an existing company has to renew their application after a particular period. There are some businesses that require more than one license to operate their business legally in that state which is time-consuming and expensive, even though it is a tedious and frustrating process, obtaining all the legal documents and certificates enables the business to operate without any issues.

The Modern Twist in the Tale

Most people have grown up listening to the story of the hare and turtle. It is a fable about a race between two animals who could not have been more mismatched in terms of speed and agility – on one side is a hare which is renowned for being lightning quick on its feet, and on the other side is a turtle, a animal that has the unfortunate distinction of being the slowest animal on four feet.

In the original tale, of course, the hare takes off at top speed – leaving the slow-moving turtle far behind – but then he gets complacent. Thinking that there is no way the turtle is going to catch up with him, he sits down for a rest under a tree, and falls asleep. The turtle, maintaining a slow but steady pace, eventually goes past the sleeping hare and crosses the finishing line, just before the hare wakes up and realises its mistake. The moral of the story was that slow and steady wins the race, while there is no point in going fast if you are not going to complete the task. Continue reading “The Modern Twist in the Tale”
