NYC has pretty strict zoning prohibitions for home based business in apartment buildings. Best to check. Mostly those places are concerned with parking in non business zoning areas.

Is there an easy and fast way to find out?  Should I Google it?

Your building manager may know.  You could also try contacting the Department of Buildings.  http://www1.nyc.gov/site/buildings/index.page

There are so many different rules/regs when it comes to NYC and home based businesses in apartment buildings. I've had a few members who were unable to start home based business due to those restrictions.

Thank you for the response. I'm definitely going to look into it. I really hope I don't have that issue. I've been wanting to start this business for years now, but haven't because of my fear to fail.

We don't revise it every year.  Only when we feel that there is information that needs to be updated.  It was last updated in 2013.

NYC is hard to get business license to operate out of apartments. Need to call business licensing and zoning but I can tell you it's REALLY hard out of an apartment in NYC, rarely do they allow home-based businesses in the city.

I did some research on operating the business out of my apartment. And I was told its fine as long as it doesn't get in the way of things, as far as traffic and loud noise in my apt.
Also the last update for the revised book I'm looking for, I found the 2014 version, but I was looking for a more updated one.

Thank you anyway.

It is due for an update but that is the most current version.  When we update it you can get a copy of the updated version free if you have previously purchased it.

Thank you.
I have never purchased the book, but do you know when the new version is coming out, so I can buy it?

I don't have a date yet.  We try to revise all books regularly but we also go by if there is new/current information on that topic.  If you do purchase the current version you are automatically eligible for the updated version as soon as it is released.  I would think it would be early in the coming year.

I have a question for PMRNC.  You said you quit your full time job after signing 2 or more physicians. Were their any issues when you informed them that you had a full time day job?

PMRNC has not been able to get on to respond to your question but I was in a similar situation.  I was employed full time by a major insurance carrier when I started my business.  I didn't inform my first few clients about my full time job unless specifically asked.  However when I did tell them I just assured them that I would be available if they needed me and I would absolutely get their work done timely.  I explained that my full time job was only until I had enough work to leave.  They were ok with that because in my situation I was telling them that I worked for a major insurance company but that I wanted to be working on the other side, for the doctors.  I just made sure that I checked my messages regularly and returned their calls quickly on my breaks.  Most of my first clients were smaller ones who were understanding.
