“Keep your feet on the ground and your head in the clouds. This means stay humble, but always be brave enough to dream big. I’ve often repeated it to other entrepreneurs – that, and to think like a toddler.”
~ Carl Reader, Business Advisor and Author of “The Startup Coach”
Executive Suite as a small business or solopreneur?
Close your eyes.
Think about your current work space. Is it a home office, a subleased space, or a standard office space for your small business? Or are you an an individual entrepreneur or freelancer? Does your location provide you with the ample space and resources needed for everyday operations? Do you feel it is beginning to, or has been, holding your company back from greater client and financial growth? Are you prepared to take your organization to the next level?
Now, think about your dream office space.
Picture the level of success you hope for and what it means in relation to your company’s mission and industry objectives. What do you see?
For many large companies, small business leaders, sole proprietors, and freelancers one of the biggest challenges is creating a business space that represents the company brand with both space flexibility and cost effectiveness. More so, many small business owners believe that they don’t have access to the resources or funding to expand, or to move their business to a growth-driven location.
At Better Office Furniture, we aren’t simply about providing you with the highest-quality and affordable office furniture that improves productivity and streamlines common, long-term office problems, or top-notch customer service. It is also our mission to ensure that we are helping you create your dream space, large or small.
That is why we believe that if you are searching for a more professional presence for your home-based or small business, an Executive Suite may be a perfect fit.
What is an Executive Suite?
An Executive Suite is a temporary or short-term office that provides a C-level, private workplace equipped with shared amenities. This includes conference and break rooms, with other businesses throughout the facility. Not only do they provide rapidly growing SMBs (small to mediums sized businesses) with flexible leasing agreements for small to large office spaces (usually ranging from 100 to 1,500 square feet), they also provide businesses with value-added services, such as low monthly rent for leases as short as 90 days. Some places even allow month-to-month leases.
Why an Executive Suite is Good for Business?
Obtaining an Executive Suite centralizes everyday business needs and streamlines operations.
Imagine walking through the front door, greeting your Executive Assistant and your fellow colleagues, collecting your morning mail and messages, and then walking into your personal office to start the day’s melody of tasks and meetings.
Tasks and responsibilities become easily delegated throughout the organization. While low-level tasks, such as taking phone calls, scheduling meetings, filing, and organizing mail are passed onto the suite’s administrative assistant. In other words, a single short-term space provides better flexibility, general office flow, and coordination of daily activities and provides you with more time to manage current projects and prospective client networking.
Small to large conference rooms and communication technologies are readily available.
No need to worry about where to meet clients, because there are conveniently located conference rooms in the same space as your office location. Collaborate easily with other businesses at the same office location to schedule on-going or new client meetings, weekly team meetings, presentations, brainstorming sessions, staff lunches, team building exercises, and everything in-between. Set-up new or reschedule meetings with the help of the suite’s Executive Assistant.
Plus, have quick and easy access to more current, innovative technologies that you might not currently have available to you as a small business owner or sole proprietor. Whether it is to effectively manage outbound calls, Skype business sessions, presentations, team and client brainstorming sessions, and team or executive meetings, you can ensure that you will always have what you need right at your fingertips.
Renting an Executive Suite is cheaper than working in a standard office space.
Whether you are looking to obtain an Executive Suite for your small business, a simple co-working space for you and other freelancers, a virtual office space, or a shared office space, such can be far cheaper to rent compared to purchasing or subleasing a location. Along with not having to purchase major amenities, rent is typically low and can be leased for short-term (as little as 90 days) or long-term (up to three-years). You will also save on shared utility costs like high-speed Wi-Fi, water, electricity, and trash pickup.
Executive Suites are perfect spaces for business networking and collaboration.
Take your time when you are searching for the perfect new location for your business. Don’t just look at the space itself, be sure to research other companies in the building and meet and greet with other executives and managers. Having a strong variety of companies and industries in the same complex allows you to have a unique networking world right at your fingertips, adding significant value to your business.
An Executive Suite provides a more polished, professional feel without sacrificing small business values and services.
Having a single-space for your organization’s daily work cultures new opportunities for innovation, ensures employee accountability, and allows managers and staff to easily collaborate on client projects as needed. It allows you to rethink your own role as an executive-leader, transform the company’s internal culture across multiple departments, and push more boundaries aiming to help you and your team achieve your company’s mission. It also provides additional space for your employees to step away from the daily grind and projects; which in turn improves employee satisfaction and long-term retention.
