I love to see new businesses start in Joplin because more new businesses means a stronger community for all of us. I was thinking about how to make it easier for people to go through those first crucial steps to get their business off the ground, and I thought a good first step would be to make a guide walking through the steps you need to take to open a business in Joplin, Missouri. I talked with the Joplin Chamber of Commerce because they are also always looking for ways to strengthen our business community, and they gave me some great feedback. So, we are jointly publishing this 10 Steps to Starting a Business in Joplin guide. Please download it here and share freely!
