Your business plan is written, you've gotten a loan, you're hiring employees... but where is all of the hard work and success going to take place? In your garage? Maybe. It's worked for many. Look at Apple Computer. But... maybe the garage isn't the best choice for your business. Besides, where would your car live? What are your options when it comes to office space? Should you buy or lease your space? Would a virtual office work? Could your employees telecommute? What about the location?

In this edition of HowStuffWorks, we'll take you through the process of figuring out how much space you need, finding the right location, inspecting the place, and negotiating the deal. And as always, we'll provide you with lots of links to resources that can help you make it happen.
