Entrepreneurs have a different way of doing things. They think outside the box and try not to conform to the norm. There is almost a culture of the way things are done by conformist. This works well for some people, but for those who don’t live by the rules and want to change the status quo, doing things their own way is part of their lifestyle.
This is also true for the way in which they manage their businesses. Being creative and willing to try something new is another trait of an entrepreneur. The willingness to bend the rules or to embrace the changes of society without fear is another. Learning to use social media to expand their reach for older business folks was hard at first, but they know that being innovative means learning new things. Trends and updates to business happen very quickly and being adaptable is paramount to the entrepreneur.
Another fast growing trend in business is working remotely. Sometimes this is out of necessity, but more often than not it’s a choice. The freedom and flexibility of working remotely has so many benefits it’s not hard to see why so many have opted out of the nine to five grind. For others the choice came when the economy of the mid-2000’s it was a necessity than soon turned into the realization that this was an affordable way to operate successfully with profits.
However, from remote work came the rise of the virtual office. A virtual office is a series of services provided by local office space or executive suite providers to remote businesses. These services include live call answering, mail service and conference room usage along with additional small services such as copies, faxes, etc…For less than $200/month, far below the expense of having a dedicated office, remote businesses are perfectly suited to these services.
Not only will they alleviate some of the duties involved with the day to day activities of running a business, but they do so much more by presenting the remote business with a professional image, a presence in the market and create a sense of trust between the owner and client.
