Myself and my two sisters are looking to relocate to Atlanta from buffalo this april. I have have so many questions and so many concerns about the move but most importantly to be successful live comfortable and make good money and make something of ourselves. Do you think that Atlanta is a key place to become successful if so why do you think that and what are some tips that I cn take to become successful as well.

Not really. At least not in the long term. Atlanta is currently experiencing unsustainable growth, with no expansion of basic services necessary to support the ever-increasing population, and no expansions seriously planned. Other cities with more stable outlooks would serve someone looking for long-term success much better. Most of these cities are more expensive than Atlanta of course, but that's because they're more desirable.

To be successful at what? What are your goals and expectations. What type of work do you do, what is your age and education etc.

If your goals not realistic, Atlanta alone can't fix that.

Why do you have two threads that are similar in topics going at the same time ?

Is this thread a joke? You can't even get the area code of the Buffalo right in your user name (I'd give someone else the benefit of the doubt that such a decision was intentional, but not you, given the rest of the content you've provided), and you might wanna leArn the ropes of spelling before you attempt to learn the ropes of becoming a business owner. You're certainly going to be reliant on others to do the marketing for you, that's for sure.

LOL! This is true. Atlanta is trailer parks, ghettos, sprawl, plastic McMansions and ground zero for the Tea Party. Doesn't that sound like fun?
