LOCATION OF THE BUSINESS Choosing a location for your business can be very difficult. You have a number of factors to consider. These involve both money matters and non-money matters. The best solution is to balances out money matters and non-money matters. A very important element is the cost of land. You preferably want land, which another business has not previously used. If they have the land is already going to be much more expensive. I will need to locate an area that will enable me to exploit the market.
