Imagine for a moment that your startup has grown large enough to move into an office. You’ve closed many more clients than you had projected, and your billables have increased 2200%. You just landed a prime piece of real-estate on the corner of a main intersection a few months ago. The perfect opportunity for more people to notice you. You’re making moves and business is great.
