If you live in the following 3 States: Washington, Oregon, and Utah, consider yourself extremely lucky.

You are in the top 3 friendliest states to operate your ecom business out of, along with low tax rates.

In this video,, we review the criteria you should look at when setting up your eCom business. 

Let’s face it, com and online businesses are taking over. According to Digital Commerce 360, Consumers spent $861.12 billion online with U.S. merchants in 2020, up an incredible 44.0% year over year; that’s the highest annual U.S. ecommerce growth in at least two decades.

It’s also nearly triple the 15.1% jump in 2019. 

That means the opportunity is there for the problem-solvers of the world who want to jump in and make their impact and fortune here. One of the best things about com and online business is the flexibility and how location free you can be. 

You can be located anywhere in the U.S. or even operate your business on a remote island (as long as you have high-speed internet).

With that said, our #1 advice for those who can relocate is to find the perfect mix of a business-friendly environment and tax-savings disadvantage of this geo-location strategy. 

This video will cover our top 3 recommended states to operate your com and online business.
