Being a startup or entrepreneur takes guts and isn’t for the faint of heart. If you’re one of the lucky ones who has been able to get funding, taken care of all the legal requirements, paperwork et al. You are off and running. Do you find that you are constantly working, that the lines between your personal and professional life are beginning to blur?
You can’t afford the salary and benefits that come with an assistant. Even without the benefits you can barely pay yourself, but you need help. Getting an executive suite with all the perks that come with it, a receptionist, phones, and all the amenities that come with isn’t even an option, although it would suit your needs perfectly.
So you’ve decided the simplest solution is to continue to do it all yourself. You don’t need to sleep, eat, or have any semblance of a personal life. Until everything starts to fall apart. Don’t be delusional about your business, especially if it is growing and you can’t keep up. It is a correct to assume you can’t afford office space.
Virtual office services is the solution to your dilemma. For a small monthly fee, you will receive the following services either combined or as a single service, depending on what your remote or small business need is. Live call answering in your company name, with these calls then transferred to you anywhere you request; home, cell, etc… You’ll also receive all your voicemails and faxes. Perfect for downloading to your computer if you need to save! Mail service or business license is another service that can provide you with a brick and mortar business address other than your home or use of a strip mall post box by exclusive use of the VO provider, typically a local office space or executive suite, with an assigned suite number. This helps create a presence for you in addition, you will receive all your mail and packages for pick in a locked mailbox or held securely for pickup or forwarding. Conference rooms, day offices and workstations also services that are available.
So don’t stick your head in the sand. There’s help and all you need to do is ask.
