If you’re the owner of a business or organization in Georgia, there’s a strong chance that your base of operations is located in or near the bustling city of Atlanta. With a gross domestic product of over $270 billion, Atlanta ranks in as the 15th most economically powerful city in the world and 6th in the nation. Indeed, Atlanta’s metropolitan area is known globally for its five million person population and expansive business districts.
