Existing Debts and Future Obligations

Undoubtedly, the more people that see the business regularly, the higher the chance to build a returning client base. A final thought is the basic location demographics. Is the business located in a densely populated city, or is it located on the edge of town? How might the neighborhood average household earnings effect future income potential?
