Startups and entrepreneurs are the loneliest people next to those who need help moving. They are pretty much the single parent to their fledgling businesses. All the responsibility lies on them. After completing all the necessary legalities and financing, all the minutiae is up to them, from handling phone calls, billing, mail/packages or finding places to meet other than their homes etc…
This can be time and energy consuming leaving little time for a personal life. If there is, it’s generally clouded by worries of the day to day duties and concerns that come with running one’s own company. The line between personal and professional life is blurred, if it exists at all. That’s all good if the company is growing and begins to require more and more attention from the business owner.
Unless of course, the business or home life suffers or it outgrows the remote or home base. The next step would be a dedicated office space where the line is drawn from the home or wherever. This can be a costly endeavor and a risky one as well. Signing a long term lease has been the ruin of many a startup.
A virtual office is the solution. A virtual office is an office without walls or what a dedicated office client’s receive, but without all the overhead. VO clients receive each month for a small fee, live call answering in their company name, calls transferred to them wherever they are, voicemail to email, faxes to email, mail service/business license address service where mail is delivered to them at a local office space or executive suite who is the VO provider to the business owner, typically with a suite number assigned to them, meeting city requirements to hang a business license, as well giving them a brick and mortar location for their business other than their home or strip mall postal box. In addition, the use of conference room, day offices, or workstations add to the services available to a VO client. All these services are available singularly or together for a customized business package.
Working remotely has never been easier with a virtual office.
