    I currently own Fort Bend Internet Designs (http://www.fbid.net) and have recently been thinking about changing the company name to something else (less local) and getting it TM etc. Should I keep the business small like it is right now, or expand it (ie. take out a loan, get an office, ect.)?

    You have to make the decision about taking out a loan or other financing to expand your business. If you feel your business has grown that much and will continue to then expansion is the logical next step. Careful not to bite off too much too soon however.

    I don't think we are going to sell, business for web designers in Houston is extremely plentiful!

    Congratulations! It sounds like you may be in an area that is not bogged down by hundreds of Internet design "professionals". This is the key point--if you have this advantage now, then expand before someone else does. No matter what market you are in, it helps if you have some sort of design specialty that your company can offer that no other local company can.
    GOOD LUCK!
