“It’s a trend for small businesses to move more to online,” a CenturyLink Business Communications Specialist, Andrew Allen, said. “Running an e-commerce store has become cheaper and easier than it ever was in the past. That has made it so small businesses can reach a market outside of their local area.”
Quality of life is one of the reasons Netrocon CEO Shirley Vincent moved to Charlotte.
