Why Every Home-Based Business Should Have a Virtual Office
Posted On August 20, 2019 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

Making the move to entrepreneurship is a smart and sustainable career choice with a long list of benefits.

However, not everything about a home-based business is easy-breezy. The challenges you face revolve around privacy, productivity, professional image, and growth. These are all critical aspects of launching a company that you need to address early in the game to ensure you are ready for whatever comes next.

A virtual office is a great way to support these needs. It is affordable, flexible, and gives you some great benefits you may not have thought about.

The benefits of a virtual office for a home-based business

Running your business out of your home may seem like a smart thing to do—and it is. It saves you money on office space, you can enjoy a better work-life balance, and you can write off a portion of your mortgage or rent on your income tax return.

However, like many good things, there are issues to consider. For example:

1. Privacy. If you are using your home address as your business address, you risk compromising your privacy and that of your family.

The solution: A virtual office provides you with a professional business address so that salespeople and others who are looking for you will arrive there and not at your front door.

2. Professional image. If potential customers look up your address and find a residence, they may not see you as being well-established and professional. Plus, if you needed to have a meeting with an important client, doing so at your home may not be ideal; nor would it be if you arranged to meet them at a coffee shop.

The solution: A virtual office package not only gives you a professional business address, but you will also have access to meeting rooms when you need them.

3. Business growth. If your business grows and you need to bring on more employees, do you have the office space in your home to accommodate them?

The solution: A virtual office will give you some options in terms of administrative help, allowing you to hire support on an as-needed basis. You will also have access to a range of flexible office options in case your home office just isn’t cutting it anymore.

4. The latest technology. Keeping up with the advances in technology today isn’t easy—or cheap—but you need to stay on the cutting edge if you want to deliver what your customers demand.

The solution: A virtual office gives you access to state-of-the-art office equipment without having to invest a fortune. You can use it when you need it and not have to worry about keeping it current.

These are just a few of the reasons why every home-based business should have a virtual office. Lakeside Executive Suites offers a range of customizable virtual office packages that will answer all your business needs and support sustainable growth.

Creative Ways to Boost Your Productivity
Posted On February 25, 2019 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

It’s true for everybody: some days are super-productive; and others, not so much. We all have our moments. But what if you could put a gold star on every day?

Here’s a hint: this isn’t about how technology or apps are going to make your life easier. It’s not about motivation, because that’s something you just can’t maintain—at least, not consistently. What it is about is your mindset.

The truth is, you can train yourself to switch gears at the right time and boost productivity in the process, even when motivation is in low gear. All it takes is a little practicality and some creative thinking to keep those sparks flying.

Here are our top tips on how to boost your productivity every single day:


1. Accept that you will fail

You probably know some successful people. They are that way for a reason – and it’s not because they have horseshoes or a crystal ball. What they do have is perseverance. They don’t give up, even when the going gets tough. If they face rejection, they keep trying until they get results. One of the things that makes it easy for them to keep on going is that they have a system in place for when failure looms. When it does happen, they default to their system and carry on.

How to do this:

  1. Make a list of everything you need to do to reach your target.
  2. Template those steps so you can maintain the pace.


For instance, say you are trying to land an agent or a publisher for your book. First, you would make a list of your prospects. You would then prepare your query letter and make sure your manuscript is ready to go. If you receive a rejection, you don’t linger on it, you just move on to the next name on the list.


2. Calendar your tasks

Scheduling your tasks is a helpful exercise, especially if you have several different projects on the go at any given time. It also helps to alleviate any burnout you might feel with any one task.

How to do this:

  1. Put your tasks into your calendar or to-do list.
  2. Allocate a set amount of time for each task.
  3. Set an alarm so that you switch gears after, say, a couple of hours (or whatever works for you).


When you’re aware of what you have on your plate ahead of time, you won’t be as likely to lose faith and do nothing when your momentum starts to wane.


3. Resist the urge to multitask

Multitasking may seem like a good idea and, for a while, you might actually get a lot accomplished. But it’s not sustainable. Taking on multiple tasks at once will only slow down your work on all of them.

How to do this: give each task 100 percent of your focus, and you’ll be knocking them down like toy soldiers.

Yes, there is life after work. Or there ought to be. Here’s how to get it!
Posted On July 7, 2017 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

It might seem a bit counter-intuitive, but people are actually more productive when they work less.

Typically, the average person who is working full-time – and this includes digital nomads, entrepreneurs, freelancers and remote workers as well as your average office employee – spends between 7 and 10 hours a day working. The higher numbers tend to refer more to the entrepreneurial types, as they dont punch a clock and will often continue to work until they cant anymore.

So, what happens to your social time, your family life, or your hobbies? If youre like many Americans, these things just might fall by the wayside in favor of getting more accomplished. Whether that decision is fueled by deadlines, finances, or simply a drive to finish what youve started, the result is the same: overworked, burnt-out, and ultimately headed for the ditch at some point.

Too much work comes at a cost, too: besides the emotional withdrawal from your loved ones and causing harm to your relationships, there are health implications too. Depression, heart disease, stomach problems, high blood pressure, hair loss, poor sleep – all of these things can happen, even to the most resilient among us.

You might be thinking: thats impossible for me. How am I possibly going to get time off or make time for myself when I have so much on my plate? The answer is simpler than you think.

Heres a few tips to help make it happen:

Make YOU part of your schedule

If you are always juggling a full calendar, think about scheduling yourself into the mix. Make a commitment not to work on weekends, or pick a day (preferably two in a row), and stick to it. Its all about setting boundaries. All you need to do is make that decision and stand by it. This will give you freedom to attend your kidsbaseball games or school picnics, or afford you some free time that you can spend with your friends doing something you love. Even if you stay at home all day watching Netflix, youre allocating time for yourself, and thats the important thing. Remember – if youre not doing well, physically, mentally and emotionally, youll be little use to anybody else.

Turn off your technology

One of the biggest obstacles to unfettered personal time is probably your smartphone. Pick a day of the week, maybe Sunday, and resolve to not look at any emails or texts, or take phone calls for any work-related purpose. Unplugging, even for a short time, releases a great deal of anxiety. If you cant manage to do it for an entire day right off the bat, try it for a couple of hours each evening, and work up from there. Youll be surprised at how much more attuned you are to things that happen in the moment, and hopefully youll realize that there is more to life than – well, you know. Work.

Get active

Make a daily habit of getting outside and connecting with your physical self. You can go for a walk or a run in the morning, or take your dog for a long walk in the evening, go to the gym for an hour a day, or join a community sporting club (but remember to leave the phone at home)!

Getting your blood pumping helps to lubricate your brain, and when you get back to work, you will feel energized and ready to take on whatever may come.

Dont give in to distraction

When youre working, focus on work. Dont get caught up in office chit chat, dilly-dally, or allow something non-work related to take your attention away from what youre doing. The sooner you get your work done, the sooner you can leave and get back to that life youve been hoping to have. Turn off your social media notifications during work hours. Delete non-work-related emails. If you can, remove all but your own chair from your office so that nobody can park their butt there and keep you from getting things done.

Tips for Building a Successful Distributed Teams
Posted On June 7, 2017 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

With the rising prevalence of remote working, distributed teams are becoming more the norm than they ever have been in the past. For employers, it offers the opportunity to work with the most talented people they can find, no matter where they are located. For employees, it opens up a world of opportunity that is unrestricted by geography.

Like every good thing, there are always drawbacks. Accountability is a factor, as is making sure the entire team is connected, and knows who is responsible for what. In a distributed team, it is more important than ever to have a team that is united toward the same goal, but with the right leadership and transparency in communication, managing your distributed team should be a snap.

1. Communicate regularly

Make a point of holding a regular team meeting, just to make sure everybodys on the same page. This gives everybody an idea of what the rest of the team is doing, and what hurdles, if any, need to be overcome. There are several communication tools for teams to help stay connected: try Slack, or HipChat for messaging, or dive right into Skype for Business (which comes standard in Office 365 or Microsoft Exchange), or Google Hangouts to give everybody some face time. Those in leadership roles should always leave their virtual door open so that if questions or roadblocks come up, there is always a recourse.

2. Establish clear roles and responsibilities

Its inevitable that your distributed team members may have different opinions about the way certain things should to be done. In this light, its important to establish a clear definition of what everybody is doing to avoid any potential clashes and minimize conflict. Assign tasks according to expertise, so that graphic artists are working on design, and copywriters are working on writing copy, developers are writing code, and so on. This serves several purposes, in that you are building on your teams strengths, and you are building trust within the team as a whole: trust that the right people are doing the right jobs, and that if there are any problems or overlaps, they all know who to turn to.

3. Put a priority on local leadership

If a remote team lacks leadership, there is far more likelihood for attention to drift away. Having a locally-based leader on site goes a long way to building a strong local team. It also helps keep people on-task, and gives your remote workers a better understanding of the company culture in general. With strong local leadership in place, you will be building a localized culture that, in and of itself, will become a strong asset to your bottom line. It also gives the parent company a good connect point into understanding the specific culture and challenges of the area, giving them better insight into who their remote team members really are.

4. Use the right technology

Your technology should serve you well, but it should also serve your distributed workforce. Dropbox, Google Suite, Office 365 and One Drive are all great for file sharing and version control. Video conferencing should also be one of your standards, and ideally there should be one person on the distributed team who is responsible for initiating meetings, and making sure everybody is accounted for. Be mindful of time zones to make sure tasks and meetings are delivered and arrived at in a time that makes sense to everybody, and make sure everybody has a way of connecting when they need to.

5. Hire the right people

While this might be easier said than done, your first couple of hires are probably the most important. They should be able to work autonomously, and ideally, will have done some remote work before. They should be highly accountable, motivated self-starters who are responsive to communication. They should also be as open and honest as possible, as the standard they set will establish the basis for your distributed office culture.

How Coworking Powers Weston’s Economy and Community
Posted On March 13, 2017 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

Coworking has revolutionized the way people choose to work. For many, it has become the obvious choice to set up shop and get down to business. And if you’re wondering, yes, the coworking phenomenon has a place in Weston too.

Yet, many still feel skeptical about coworking; they just don’t get it. This, of course, happens among those who haven’t had a coworking experience, those that haven’t been lucky enough to walk into a space and interact with the people there and see first hand what all the rave is about.

Here’s a quick hint–it’s not the design, or the location, or the amazing coffee (although these all certainly help). It’s the people factor that draws many in and keeps them in. Simply said, coworking wouldn’t be the hit it is if it weren’t for the sense of community it consistently fosters.

And while you might be thinking that this applies only inside the walls of the physical space; that is not true. The impact coworking spaces have on the local community goes beyond providing networking opportunities and shared resources to get work done.

Here’s how coworking spaces are powering Weston’s economy and community by encouraging innovation and promoting local businesses.

These spaces are the physical manifestation of community and collaboration. Regardless of your trade, these workspaces welcome anyone and everyone, finding ways to make it easier for you or your business to succeed. Successful business, as you know, drive a healthy and strong economy.

Because they are located in the heart of neighborhoods, these spaces allow for people to easily walk or to commute via public transportation. Not only does this allow people to get to know their surrounding environments better, it also means that they are more likely to step into a restaurant or coffeeshop for a quick break, keeping the business going for many local companies.

Coworking members actively seek ways in which they can collaborate with one another and help each other out. Whether you’re an accountant needing a programmer, or a designer needing a writer, chances are you will find someone that’s a fit within your coworking community or they will know someone that knows someone. No need to outsource or hire a total stranger–it’ll be someone that will feel more of a personal bond with your project and what you want to accomplish.

If you’re not convinced yet, come check us out. We promise you’ll want to keep coming back. Find out more about coworking spaces in Weston here.

Need an excuse to sit back, relax, and take in a good movie? Lakeside Executive Suites is about to give you four. As small business owners, we know you are always looking for ways to learn, develop, and further grow your business. Fortunately, inspiration and enlightenment aren’t limited to scholarly publications, journals, or diplomatic speeches. They can also be found on the big screen.

Recommended by Zach Cutler, contributing writer for Entrepreneur, here are 4 movies to enjoy from the comfort of your recliner, couch, or office chair that are sure to inspire any business owner.

1. Deli Man
Deli Man is a fun documentary about the rise of delis in the U.S. during the 1930s. Learn from Ziggy Gruber, a third-generation owner of the tremendously successful Kenny & Ziggy’s deli in Houston, about how to care for your business and customers. He is energetic, obsessed with high quality, and loves what he does. Overall, the movie illustrates the importance of passion and heart in business and shows that those who find their passion will find success.

2. Woman in Gold
Woman in Gold tells the story of an elderly Jewish woman who 50 years later tries to reclaim artwork taken from her family by the Nazis. She begins a long legal battle with the Austrian government to get her family’s paintings back. The movie depicts the struggle between knowing when to give up and knowing when to persevere. It is a story of strength and conviction.

3. The Wolf of Wall Street
The Wolf of Wall Street details the corruption of real-life stockbroker, Jordan Belfort. The film depicts how greed can affect your personal and professional success. This movie will remind you that there are no shortcuts to succeeding in business and in life. Take the time to grow a credible business built on solid values and ethics.

4. Boyhood
Boyhood chronicles the childhood of a young boy, and is the first to use the same actor as he aged over a 12-year period. The movie’s filmmaker, Richard Linklater, took on an industry first by carving out only 39 shooting days over 12 years. The movie was powerful and thought provoking.

Is a Virtual Office Right for You?
Posted On June 2, 2015 Posted By: admin

As your business grows and develops, you might be faced with the tough decision to take your business elsewhere or stay in your home office. The need for a prestigious business address, 24/7 professional meeting space availability, and live phone reception service can necessitate the change from a home office to full service office space. However, there is a third option…one step in between…that might be the perfect compromise between the two workspace solutions…a virtual office. A virtual office gives you all of the convenience of a home office but with the support you would expect from a full service office space. To help you with this crucial decision for the future success and vitality of your business, following are some pros and cons of working from home and working via a virtual office.

Work from Home

Benefits: Convenience, most affordable and accessible option, work whenever-however.

Virtual Office

Work Commute Times on the Rise — Time for a Virtual Office
Posted On April 15, 2015 Posted By: admin

The distance between where people live and where they work is growing in most metro areas. Work days are starting earlier and commute times are getting longer as jobs are getting farther and farther away from where people live.

The new analysis of demographic and employment data completed by the Brookings Institution revealed that the number of jobs within the typical commute distance for residents of the nation’s 96 largest metro areas fell by 7 percent between 2000 and 2012. The new study also found that amongst 37 popular metro areas there was a rise in employment rate but also an increase in distance between jobs and residents.

Despite job growth in suburbs, suburban residents found themselves farther away from employment opportunities than city residents. The analysis found that 60 million suburban residents live in neighborhoods with declining proximity to jobs compared with around 33 million city residents.

Proximity to your place of employment is a very strong consideration when searching for a residence. No one wants the extra added stress of long commute times to your job. It takes a toll on your mental and physical health. The new data shows that regional economic development officials should not only make overall job growth a goal, but also consider where these jobs are going.

Fortunately, Lakeside Executive Suites is one step ahead of the game. Lakeside Executive Suites, a full-service office space provider, is conveniently located  in Weston, Florida accessible within minutes from I-595, I-75 and the Sawgrass Expressway.

Shark Tank coming to Miami
Posted On January 9, 2015 Posted By: admin

shark tank

Wanna swim with the Sharks?  Well, here’s your chance!  The ABC unscripted, hit reality television show “Shark Tank” will make an open casting call this week in Miami Beach on Thursday, Jan. 15 at the Miami Beach Convention Center.  The show, which allows entrepreneurs to pitch business ideas to wealthy investors, will send its casting team to the Small Business Expo to hopefully make a few local entrapraneur’s dreams come true.

The Sharks — tough, self-made, multi-millionaire and billionaire tycoons – are on a continual quest to find and invest in the best businesses and products that America has to offer.  The Sharks coming our way are: billionaire Mark Cuban, owner and chairman of AXS TV and outspoken owner of the 2011 NBA championship Dallas Mavericks; real estate mogul Barbara Corcoran; “Queen of QVC” Lori Greiner; technology innovator Robert Herjavec; fashion and branding expert Daymond John; and venture capitalist Kevin O’Leary.

The entrepreneurs who dare to enter the Tank must try to convince the Sharks to part with their own hard-earned cash and give them the funding they desperately need to turn their dreams into million dollar realities. The Sharks have an end goal as well—to get a return on their investment and become a part of the next big business idea.  Over the past 5 seasons, the Sharks have offered more than $45 million to fund a variety of innovative ideas.

Interested entrepreneurs should bring a completed “Shark Tank” application, available to Hall C of the convention center between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. to receive wristbands. Interviews will go from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.  University of Miami is also offering tips for entrepreneurs from “Shark Tank” alumni.  Susy Alvarez-Diaz, director of entrepreneurship programs for the business school said, “Know your numbers inside and out.  The sharks are very savvy people, obviously. Don’t be mistaken and think that you can go there and wing it, because you will be challenged very harshly.”

So, here is your chance to chase the American dream and potentially secure a business deal that could make you a millionaire.  And whether or not your play date with the sharks leaves them biting, you’ve got another opportunity that is at Lakeside Executive Suites.

Lakeside Executive Suites, a full-service office space provider, is a partnership with million dollar potential just waiting for you.
