When we found a location for our first business, I was so ready to get the keys and get to work on our buildout. I was so adamant that it was the perfect location, that I didn’t even care what was in our commercial lease contract. Nothing was stopping me from putting the petal to the medal on opening our doors. I was a girl on a mission. But if I’m being honest, not taking the time to dive into the nitty-gritty of our commercial lease was not a bright idea. When it came time to open our second and third location, I buckled down and reached out to my network to understand the small print and boy am I glad I did.

Leasing a commercial space is like committing to a long-term relationship. It’s exciting, nerve-wracking, and sometimes a little overwhelming. But just like any good relationship, it’s essential to take your time, evaluate your options, and make sure you’re getting the best deal possible. So, before you get down on one knee and sign on the dotted line, listen to this episode where we break down 16 crucial things to consider when leasing a commercial space. Trust us, you will thank yourself later for taking the time to get it right!
