Reasons why you should do business and work in smaller environments

Many people worry that they could encounter big problems when doing business in a smaller environment. The purpose of this article, however, is to explain why things are not quite as they seem.
1. Transportation What would life be like without crowds? Every day, traffic jams occur in big cities, and we cannot avoid them.

Whenever we are late, waiting for transportation, or in a hurry, we feel nervous and depressed. The traffic jams in London, Pariz, or Milano are well known to everyone. The traffic, especially in the morning when you get to work and in the afternoon when you get home from work, is extremely congested with cars that stand still and move slowly.

The same kind of scene cannot be seen in smaller towns, because there are fewer vehicles when fewer people live there. However, that's not all. Walking, bicycling, or taking public transportation are usually the most convenient ways to commute from home to work.

The ride is still faster even if it's a long distance from home to work since there aren't that many vehicles on the road.

2. The cost of living is lower

Following up on the first positive thing - transportation - is the second positive thing.

Gas prices have skyrocketed, so we don't spend much on fuel.
Additionally, smaller towns offer lower prices for almost everything (though there are exceptions, particularly in touristic areas). The gym, sports activities, groceries, children's food, coffee in cafes...

In Zagreb, for example, everything is priced higher due to the highest surcharge. Taxes and surcharges vary from place to place. Many local governments also subsidize certain taxes for specific business activities that affect prices.

Throughout Europe, many smaller towns have significantly lower property prices than larger ones. The average apartment in Lisabon or Madrid is more expensive than a beautiful house with a garden in some smaller towns, for example.

As well, JLRS have begun to publish more and more public calls for co-financing to address the housing issue of young people in smaller communities. 3. Having more free time There is some connection between this and the transportation to work.

You can spend more time with family and friends, enjoy hobbies, or enjoy nature if you don't waste two hours a day driving from point A to point B and back.
