It Just Keeps Getting Better! Revised (Already)

In the most recent CNN Money report on "The 10 Best States For Starting A Business," the great state of Virginia came in at number 9.  I'm tempted to jump and down and shout woooohooooooo!. 

CNBC listed Virginia at #1 in their "America's Top States For Business In 2011."  In that study, Virginia was listed as #2 in business friendliness meaning it's a great environment for business in relation to regulation and litigation.  Virginia ranked #10 in access to capital, # 8 in its economy and #6 in education.  Five of ten rankings were at 10 or below.  Virginia is a great place to raise a family and do business.  

A few weeks ago, Inman News reported that Winchester, VA is one of the "10 Best Markets for Real Estate Investors."

In less than two weeks, the economic community has broadcast to the world, "Move to Virginia," and if you do, "Move to Winchester!"  And, if you move to Winchester, VA call Mike Cooper to find the home of your dreams 540-722-6029.  OK, I added that, but it's true.

I couldn't be more proud of my state.  We have a great governor.  Watch him.  He is showing the nation how to pull itself out of this financial quagmire it's in.  We are rich in history.  We have mountains.  We have beaches.  We are a great place to start a new business, and we have a field ripe for the investment community to harvest! 

Come one, come all to Virginia.  We're open for business!

Thanks D & J.  It has been a good month.  I used to live in Tulsa and Broken Arrow.  Loved it out there, but I missed the mountains.  Thanks for stopping by.

Congrats to Virgina -- with more business being attracted to your state, it should lead to more housing demands.

I sure woulda thought Texas would be higher than 7, but anything in the top 15% can't be bad!

Absolutely, Ron. I'm sure Texas will show up on the top ten places to get a job.  It should anyway.  Thank for commenting.

Mike-I have to agree Va is a great state in which to live. Can't beat the mild winters. Now the summers are too hot but I guess it is a trade off for no snow to speak of and no -20* temps. I have been living in Va for 5 yrs now. It is home now.
