As of a couple days ago, the description of “local” public relations and social media professional Ray Young no longer fits.
The president of Razor Sharp Public Relations put his Lincoln house on the market, and he and his wife and business partner Christine Young packed up their seven kids and began their move to Texas.
The Youngs will live in Leander and operate Razor Sharp PR from Austin, Ray Young said in an interview Friday evening before hitting the road on Saturday.
“My clients are spread out all over the country,” he said, adding that he has no clients in Sacramento. “I can do my business from anywhere.”
“It makes more sense to do it from a place where the economy is doing well … and where it’s a better place to do business,” Young said.
Young said he has many reasons for choosing Texas, but key considerations are the challenges of doing business in California and what he considers to be a more business-friendly climate in Texas.
