How is this possible? When you lose the large office space or give up trying to do it all yourself, you’ll find you get more. This is true in life and sometimes in business. Give up large car your leasing and get a used one. You’ll save more money on payments, car insurance and gas. The same is true in business. If you give up the large dedicate office space or trying to do it all yourself, you’ll save yourself money and/or stress.
Let’s say you’re a starting your own business. Being your own boss sounds like fun until the business takes off or your personal life grows, i.e. family. Then working from home or out of your garage seems a bit ‘messy’. You’re clients aren’t exactly going to be thrilled if they ever find out your environment. Not exactly the sort of thing that you want them to know or works to creating an all-important sense of trust.
Try a virtual office. When you rid yourself of doing it all, you’ll find that with the help of a virtual office provider you’ll gain more freedom and the professional image your startup needs. Virtual offices are leased by local office space providers. The difference between them and a dedicated office space is merely your presence. For a small monthly fee, your business will receive services that include live call answering, forwarding to you most anywhere. Voicemail to email. Faxes to email. Business license address or mail service. Mail to a physical, brick and mortar office building where your business address is now located with your own assigned suite number. Here your mail will be held in a secure manner for pickup or forwarding, as you request. Conference/meeting rooms available for your use, along with day office or work stations at some locations.
Finally, do your homework and make sure the business address you lease with is a good one and that the provider has positive reviews. In the end, you’ll find that by losing any kind of ‘office space’ that isn’t meeting your growing business’ needs, you’ll gain a lot with a virtual one.
