How Are College and University Students Using Coworking Spaces for e-Learning During The Pandemic?
Posted On October 9, 2020 Posted By: Ysel Hernandez

Instead of completely cancelling all classes during the COVID-19 pandemic, most colleges and universities in Florida scrambled to move their entire curriculum to the internet, with most of this shift happening almost overnight. As students had to move out of dorms and back into their parent’s homes, they were forced to keep studying and taking virtual classes from their childhood bedrooms, living room couches, or kitchen counters. This was OK for a little while, but students quickly found out that this wouldn’t be a sustainable situation for them.

Much like workers have found that working from home is not ideal, students have found that studying and learning from home comes with its own set of challenges. As a result, some students started seeking places where they could find the peace and quiet they need for intense study sessions, and that also had the tech and equipment available to be able to take virtual classes or exams. 

With the right headphones, a quiet coffee shop would have worked for reading and studying, but with indoor dining closed during the pandemic it leaves students with limited options.  

Luckily, they found a better solution:

Coworking spaces.

Coworking spaces offer students everything they need for both studying and taking online classes. These spaces are fully equipped with everything they need to not only allow for but also to enhance their studying activities. 

Here are a few ways college and university students are using coworking spaces for e-learning during the pandemic:

Online classes

To be able to fully absorb the content of online classes, students need a quiet space where they can focus on what is being presented to them, while also allowing them the freedom to be able to ask questions or present something themselves without worrying about being interrupted, either by others or by technical difficulties. 

Coworking spaces are perfect for focused work, and additionally they offer conference and meeting rooms that are fully equipped with everything a student needs to be able to focus and also make presentations, like ergonomic chairs, a reliable WiFi connection, LCD screens and projectors, etc. Meeting rooms can often be rented out for the specific amount of time that the students need making it convenient and adaptable to each student’s needs and budget. 

Some students may find that they can learn better if they take classes when they aren’t sitting alone in front of their computer. By using a desk at a coworking space, students are able to take their classes while not feeling isolated and feeling motivated by the buzz and activity from others around them. 

Studying

Studying alone might also not be ideal for some students who might benefit from forming study groups. A coworking space is the perfect place for study groups, because it is designed to maximize collaboration while following social distancing protocols. 

And when students need to have some intense study time by themselves, a coworking space is ideal because it caters to a variety of working and studying styles. Students can choose to use a desk if they feel more productive around other members, or they can use a comfortable couch at the lounge. They can also book a private office for a few hours if they need a fully isolated environment. 

One of the biggest benefits that coworking spaces offer students at the moment is helping them feel part of a community. Working and studying from home can lead to feelings of isolation, which can dampen student performance. 

Coworking spaces offer an environment that is conducive to productivity, creativity, and inspiration, all of which can help students feel constantly motivated. 

Are you a student in Florida searching for a better environment to study or take virtual classes? Use our coworking spaces for e-learning during the pandemic. Visit us today for more information. https://www.lesweston.com/coworking-space/

The Benefits of a Virtual Office When Working Remotely
Posted On April 17, 2020 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

In the current climate, remote work is quickly becoming the avenue of choice for employers and employees alike. But working remotely doesn’t mean you have to abandon the office.

Enter the virtual office, the savior of the modern working man and woman.

Working from a virtual office means that you get to make your own rules. If you find that you do your best work in a non-traditional setup, a virtual office may be the perfect solution for you. 

What is a Virtual Office?

A virtual office is part of the ‘flexible workspace industry,’ a movement that is changing the landscape of office work as we know it. A virtual office can encompass a host of services, including:

  1. Providing you with a respectable, professional business address and phone number
  2. A live receptionist who answers your calls and takes messages
  3. The ability to book rooms at their brick and mortar offices for when you have face-to-face meetings
  4. A wide array of technical and business support services

Remote work isn’t a new concept, but these days, it’s experiencing a meteoric surge as companies adapt to changing circumstances. Outside of what’s happening in the world, it’s still a popular choice for small businesses, and it’s not hard to understand why.

With so many busy, on-the-go solopreneurs entering the market, old-fashioned office rentals just aren’t cutting it anymore.

What a Virtual Office Can Do For You

  1. Convenience. Whether you’re at home, a coffee shop, a library, or visiting relatives, you’ll always have somebody taking care of your business.
  2. No Commute. The great thing about a virtual office is that, unless you’re meeting in person, you never have to commute. By freeing up those periods of your day usually spent going to and from, you’ll have a lot more time to focus on the things that are actually important. 
  3. Independence. Working remotely can seem a little daunting at first, but in reality, virtual work is an opportunity for you to become more self-sufficient. By setting your schedule and sticking by it, you’ll quickly learn to self-motivate, becoming a more effective and independent remote worker.
  4. Save Money. A virtual office is super cost-efficient. You don’t have to pay for a costly office lease or the utilities to keep the internet on. You’re basically free from any of the expenses associated with a typical brick-and-mortar office. Depending on the level of service and features you need, virtual office fees are usually less than $100 per month.

No office? No problem!

In conclusion, a virtual office is excellent support for remote work. Lakeside Executive Suites offers all the convenience of a traditional office without the usual expenses. Plans start as low as $69 per month.

There’s never been a better or more socially responsible time to choose a virtual office. Reach out today to find out what we can do for you.

Why Now Is the Perfect Time to Start Your Business in Fort Lauderdale
Posted On July 12, 2019 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

If you live in the Fort Lauderdale area and are getting ready to launch your business, you could not have chosen a better time or place. Florida boasts one of the most powerful economies in America and has experienced steady growth even through challenging times. Small businesses make up more than 99 percent of all companies, employing almost half of the state’s entire workforce.

Add to that the beautiful weather, the white sand beaches, and a vibrant lifestyle and you’ve got a clear winner! No matter how you look at it, there really isn’t much of a downside. So, congratulations on your decision, and just know that Lakeside Executive Suites in Weston will always be here to lend a hand when you need it.

Benefits of doing business in Fort Lauderdale, Florida

There are many attractive reasons why doing business in Florida is a good idea. Here are our top four:

1) You will pay lower taxes

Florida is one of only a few states that doesn’t have a personal income tax, which is particularly great for LLCs. Sales tax is low, and corporate tax is moderate as well and could be as low as 5.5 percent. Additionally, there are a lot of financial and tax incentives for new businesses, prompting many companies to relocate to the area to reduce their tax burden.

2) Access to investment dollars

On the crest of a recent trend, Florida is now home to a large number of angel investors, venture capitalists, and economic hubs dedicated to building startups.

3) Low cost of living

While living in Fort Lauderdale would not be considered “cheap” by any stretch, it is still quite a lot more affordable than most other major US cities, like San Francisco, Chicago, or New York City.

4) High-net-worth

With a combined income of more than $840 billion, South Florida is home to a prosperous population who might need what you have to offer.

How to start a new business in South Florida

Sometimes, taking the first step is the most challenging. There are permits to obtain and locations to secure before you can open for business, but being prepared gives you a solid foundation for success.

Write a business plan

Having a business plan fleshed out is a critical step that should be completed well before you start doing business. A business plan gives you great insight into your competition, your challenges, and your ultimate potential for success.

Fund your business

Whether you are starting with your own seed money or looking for some outside backing, the Small Business Association can help.

Get settled at a location

When you’re just starting out, having access to flexible office space is a great way to save your budget as you grow.

Lakeside Executive Suites in Weston, FL, is South Florida’s premier supplier of professional office services like virtual office packages, coworking memberships, and a wide range of office solutions to help you get started.

Is the Future of Real Estate Offices in Coworking Spaces?
Posted On June 27, 2019 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

Local residential real estate brokers in Weston, FL, are much like any other entrepreneur. They need a place to work and a professional business address, but the reality is that they tend to spend very little time there.

If this sounds remarkably like your situation, ask yourself this question: Why pay for traditional office space, with all the premium expenses, when coworking can provide everything you need for so much less?

Office space is expensive!

Let’s face it. Office space does not come cheap. First, you have to commit to a long-term lease, and then you have to outfit your office with equipment, furniture, and staff. There are utilities to pay, cleaning expenses, and all kinds of incidentals – but when do you ever spend more than an hour or two a day in the place?

It just doesn’t make any sense.

According to Inman, the real estate industry’s leading source for real estate information, brokers and agents spend an average of 15 hours per month in the office. When you think about it, that’s a lot of bells and whistles you’re paying for, and you don’t even get to enjoy them that much.

Sure, you need a good color printer, fast internet, and someone to answer the phone, but for several thousand dollars every month, where is the value? Fortunately, we have a solution.

Coworking: a viable alternative to costly office leasing

Coworking offers an affordable alternative to the traditional office lease – without compromising all the perks you need to have to get the job done. In fact, you might even enjoy a few more perks that you weren’t expecting, like a potential pool of buyers, sellers, or developers who could become your clients.

Even if your coworking cohorts aren’t in the market for a home, they may be able to support you in other ways. For instance, you won’t have to look too far to find a graphic designer, a web developer, or a copywriter.

Some of the benefits of choosing a coworking membership over a conventional office lease include:

  1. Low, all-inclusive monthly payments
  2. No commitments, no lease to sign
  3. Business-grade internet
  4. The professional front office staff
  5. Administrative support when you need it
  6. Meeting rooms on-demand
  7. Lots of parking
  8. State-of-the-art office machines like laser printers, faxes, scanners, and more
  9. On-site café stocked with refreshments
  10. Comfortable, casual surroundings
  11. Dedicated desk availability
  12. Secure, 24/7 access
  13. Pay by the hour, day, week, or month

Any way you look at it, coworking has so many advantages over a traditional office rental. For the large brokerage, coworking allows you to scale up or down as needed without compromising on amenities and for the independent, it provides everything you need without having to invest a fortune just to get established.

Are you looking for coworking in Weston, FL? Lakeside Executive Suites has the solution for you! Drop by for a tour today or call directly to learn more about our coworking packages.

To help you save time in your day in the quest for discovery, here’s our hotlist of the five best podcasts you should be listening to right now:

1.    The Dropout (news, crime, politics)

The Dropout is about Elizabeth Holmes, America’s youngest self-made female billionaire, her rise and the plunging fall that ensued after it was learned that Theranos, her disruptive healthcare tech firm, was all based on a lie.

Available on ABC Podcasts.

2.    Monster: Season 1: Atlanta Monster; Season 2: The Zodiac Killer (crime, culture)

Season one of Monster takes a deep dive into the Atlanta child murders that happened in the late 1970s and early 1980s, looking back at the crimes, the killer, and the questions that remain. In the more recently released season two, the producers tackle the Zodiac killer, who terrorized the state of California in the 1960s and 1970s, a case that was never officially solved. If you love true crime, this is a knockout. Listen on iHeartRadio.

3.    Winnetka: A Memoir (culture, literature)

Back in the 1970s, Jessica Harper was a familiar face in feature films like Dario Argento’s cult classic Suspiria, as well as Pennies from Heaven, and Stardust Memories. Rather than writing a book, she has opted to reveal her story as an episodic podcast, named for the Chicago suburb where she grew up. Discover family secrets, social unrest in the Eisenhower era, and a genuinely fascinating chronicle of her life are set against Harper’s original musical compositions. Listen free on www.winnetkapodcast.com or Apple Podcasts.

4.    Rule of Three (comedy, culture)

Somewhere between Big Brother and Lost in Space, The Habitat is the true tale of six volunteers chosen to participate in a NASA experiment who are sent to a remote Hawaiian island to live out a year-long simulation of what it would be like to be astronauts, living in a habitat on Mars. Addictive, to say the least. Listen on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, iHeartRadio, and just about every other podcast service.

The Many Benefits of Offsite Meetings
Posted On May 14, 2019 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

Meetings are a necessary component of any successful business. They help you to connect with your stakeholders and stay on top of crucial and timely details, but every small business owner can probably agree, meetings sometimes aren’t as productive as they could be.

If this is occasionally the case at your company, consider the many benefits of offsite meetings as they could be a way for you to breathe some new life and energy into the “same old-same old.”

The truth is, we spend a lot of time in meetings. Studies show that managers, in particular, attend in the range of 60 meetings every single month. For an activity that consumes so much of our time, it’s in everybody’s best interests to make sure these meetings are delivering the results you need.

Here are some of the benefits of offsite meetings:

1. Offsite meeting benefit #1: improve productivity

Offsite meetings bring your team into a fresh, new environment. Since you won’t be in the office, you will be removed from the usual distractions, such as ringing phones and other demands on your time and attention. Attendees will focus on the planned topic; resulting in improved productivity with your meetings.

2. Offsite meeting benefit #2: access to amenities

Holding an offsite meeting allows you to access technology that you don’t have at your home office, like state-of-the-art video conferencing or audio/visual equipment that can take your presentations to the next level.

3. Offsite meeting benefit #3: employee networking

For companies that have more than one location or who employ remote workers, an offsite meeting gives you the chance to bring everybody together. No matter how well your team works together, having a personal connection is always beneficial to the result.

4. Offsite meeting benefit #4: encourage innovation

Innovation tends to stagnate when people are looking at the same four walls, the same people, the same view out the window. New perspectives encourage new ideas, and this is what your business growth hinges on. Additionally, people tend to cling to what’s familiar and can easily get stuck in a rut; an offsite meeting will expose them to new faces, encourage interaction outside of their comfort zone, and stimulate new perspectives.

5. Offsite meeting benefit #5: show your teams that you care

While your staff might not jump at the thought of yet another meeting, they will likely be excited at the prospect of getting out of the office and having a change of scenery. With an upgraded meeting experience, a nice lunch, and the opportunity for some face time with team members they don’t often see, you’ll be demonstrating how much you value their contribution.

Are you looking for a location to hold offsite meetings? Our meeting rooms are available by the hour, day, or week, giving you access to the latest technology and every possible amenity to make your meeting a success. Call today to learn more about how we can help.

Five Tips to Maintain a Healthy Relationship with Social Media
Posted On March 26, 2019 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

The rise of social media has changed the way we view the world. More than 70 percent of Americans are actively engaged on at least one social platform, but if we’re talking about millennials, that number climbs to about 98 percent.

In business, these numbers are too significant to ignore. If every customer you want to reach is on social, it stands to reason you want to reach them in that way. It’s part of your marketing strategy, it helps you generate new leads, and it’s a way to stay on top of the competition.

And what about your personal social profiles? Everybody’s got a few. The average person in the United States maintains seven social profiles. At the end of the day, that’s a lot of time spent on social. At some point, if you don’t get a handle on it, it’s going to start to affect your real-world, terrestrial life.

But how do you turn away when there’s so much going on all the time?

The truth is, turning away will do you, your relationships, your productivity, and your psyche a lot of good. The problem is, that’s easier said than done.

Here are our five top tips for maintaining a healthy relationship with social media:

1.    Schedule your daily social media time

Determine a set amount of time to update your pages, post content, and respond to messages on social. Set the timer on your smartphone and don’t ignore it when it goes off.

2.    If you really want to talk to your friend, call them

Along with being a super-computer, a CMS, and a fabulous camera, your smartphone is actually an excellent tool for making phone calls. Miss that person? Give them a call! Don’t have their phone number? They’re probably not your friend.

3.    Disable social notifications

Notifications are a great way to kick your social media anxiety into high gear. In your settings, you’ll find that you can disable them. This way, you can check in during your allotted time (see #1) and otherwise just get on with life.

4.    Embrace the moment

Authenticity is cool. Authenticity is all about being who you are. However, you can’t be authentic if you’re always focused on what other people are doing. Take the time to revel in your own life. Make your own moments. Because there is nothing more authentic than just being yourself.

5.    Choose your social platforms wisely

In business, as in life, there’s no point in investing time into something that you’re not going to get any value from. Having too many social profiles dilutes your efforts, and if you aren’t active on them, it could actually do more harm than good. Choose the platforms that are most beneficial to you and delete the rest.

Do you have any great tips for maintaining a healthy relationship with social media? We’d love to hear about them! Drop by Lakeside Executive Suites for a tour and get some honest-to-goodness face time.

Why Larger Companies are Choosing Coworking Spaces
Posted On March 17, 2019 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

Since their first appearance in the 1990s, coworking spaces and shared workspaces in general, have been disrupting the way we all get things done.

The fact is, many of the world’s top corporations, GM, IBM, and Microsoft among them, are renting coworking space. In 2018, big companies like these accounted for 30 percent of coworking’s monthly business.

Here are some of the reasons why larger companies are choosing coworking spaces today:

Coworking is more cost-effective for larger companies

Per square foot, a coworking membership is far less expensive than traditional office space

With more and more of the workforce opting to work outside of the office, coworking spaces are seen as a more viable choice, financially.

Coworking memberships give companies a way to offer their employees the tools and support they need without having to allocate permanent office space, workstations, parking spaces, and so on. It is also an easy way to scale up or down as the need dictates – and you’ll never have to worry about not having enough office space – or having a bunch of empty offices.

Coworking offers a better workplace experience

Trends aside, studies show that more than half of all employees of enterprise companies are looking for new jobs. Gallup’s State of the American Workplace found that 85 percent of enterprise employees are disengaged at work.

These alarming statistics are, in part, urging large companies to find ways to offer their employees a better workplace experience. Coworking spaces contribute to company culture in a positive way and chances are, if an employee is happy in their workspace, they may stay in their jobs longer.

Coworking offers proximity to innovation

With a booming gig economy, top talent is getting harder and harder to nail down. Coworking spaces, especially those that cater to the tech sector, are a hotbed of talent, giving larger companies easy access to the innovation they so dearly seek.

The collaborative element is so prevalent in coworking spaces that it’s relatively easy to connect with talent this way. Along with the cost savings and vibrant atmosphere, it’s a way to add value without taking on the expense of recruitment and full-time payroll.

Coworking helps large companies expand into new markets

For companies looking to expand into new territory, a coworking space provides a way to establish a base of operations and test the waters quickly. Companies save time by not having to secure office space in advance, and they save money by not having to invest in technology or other office amenities. It’s a turnkey situation from which just about every corporation can find benefit.

Faces of Weston with Zeev Fragachan
Posted On January 23, 2019 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

This month, we were excited to sit down with our member and COO of Dynamic Integrated Security, Zeev Fragachan, and learn more about him and his business.  Dynamic Integrated Security provides the architectural and engineering resources necessary to develop programs needed for optimal protection. Their expertise includes: workplace violence prevention; electronic systems design; access entry control; closed circuit television; communications and control; organization, policy and procedures; guard force development; executive protection; expert witness testimony and consulting; disaster planning and emergency preparedness; and critical incident management.

Dynamic Integrated Security assists all of its clients in the development of customized cutting-edge security systems and programs to enhance protection. Too often a security system’s problems are only realized after a situation has occurred, but Dynamic Integrated Security’s approach is to conduct an analysis to identify the components that may cause future complications.

Zeev breaks it down by saying, “Essentially, we integrated the human side of security and combined it with the most advanced technology and developed our own software that allows us to customize our solutions for our clients.”

Many people in this field have interesting backgrounds and Zeev is no different.  He started in the Israel Defense Force and served for six years on a special force’s unit.  Then he moved to South America to work as a military advisor promoting Israeli defense industries before moving into the private sector.  From there he was a security advisor for Nestle, Four Seasons International, Amway, Johnson & Johnson and Wyeth Laboratories.

We asked Zeev what made his security firm stand out from his competitors.  “We are the only security company in the state of Florida that assigned body cameras as a standard issue to all of our employees.” He continued, “we also operate a fleet of vehicles equipped with network video recording, audio, GPS and remote data transmission in real time.

Dynamic Integrated Security is excited about their future.  The company is putting forth an aggressive marketing campaign with the goal to double in size.  Over the next five years, they plan to consolidate their share of the market by including new government clients while also pursuing new accounts.  Additionally, they are planning to invigorate the security market with the launch of new security products aimed at the corporate market.

Originally from Venezuela, Zeev moved to Israel when he was 17.  He credits his time in the military with his success today.  “I was very fortunate to serve in the Israeli military and learn my trade from the very best; especially as it relates to adapting to a changing environment.”  He continued, “I am part of an industry where the key element is adaptation.  Security firms have to adapt for the new realities of the market and the debut of new technologies.  Our ability to adapt, our specialization and our professional approach will be essential to compete in the market.”

When not working, Zeev enjoys volunteering with his wife, Jhonelba, at the Jewish Federation of Broward County on various charities; especially ones that involve new Jewish immigrants.  He also covets his family time with his daughter Rebecca and son David.  When he has free time to himself; he escapes to some competitive shooting. 

With the goal of expansion, choosing the right office space was essential.  He was introduced to Lakeside Executive Suites from a friend while working from a Regus location.  Zeev says moving to Lakeside was a great decision.  “Ysel and her team are the best, the location is convenient, clean, modern and the neighbors are great people,”

To learn more about Dynamic Integrated Security; you can visit their website.  You can also follow them on Facebook or connect with Zeev on LinkedIn.

Closest places to Florida to see fall foliage
Posted On November 16, 2018 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

While we’ve got pretty much the best of everything here in Florida, one of the things we miss out on is the riot of color that the fall foliage brings to the northern climes. However, there are a few places within easy driving distance where you can drink it all in while it lasts – and some of them are right here in our state!

If you are hoping to experience the beauty of autumn foliage, we’ve got you covered. Head for the hills! Higher elevations bring cooler temperatures and that’s what nature needs to get those reds and oranges going.

Here are some of our top picks for the closest places in and around Florida for fall foliage:

Torreya State Park

Just west of Tallahassee you’ll find Torreya State Park. Its high bluffs overlook the Apalachicola River whose slopes are replete with Acer maples, sweetgum, and sourwood trees. Late October is the time to go if you want to experience fall color here in all its splendor. Note that currently the park itself is closed due to storm damage from Hurricane Michael, but surrounding areas of Bristol are still accessible to traffic.

Edward Ball Wakulla Springs State Park

Traveling south from Tallahassee, you’ll find plenty of maple trees in full regalia at Edward Ball Wakulla Springs State Park. Boat tours are available too, where you’ll be able to see the sights while touring some of the state’s deepest freshwater springs and discover places where dinosaurs used to roam free.

Ormond Scenic Loop and Trail

Here, you’ll get the best of the fall season in a uniquely Floridian way: imagine seeing colorful trees, dolphins, manatees, and whales all in the same excursion! The 30-mile loop takes you through some of the state’s oldest forests as well as pre-civil war plantations, lagoons, and more. Storm advisories recommend checking road closures before setting out.

Out-of-state fall foliage destinations

If you’re up for a slightly more ambitious excursion, you can always venture out-of-state. North Carolina, Georgia, and parts of Alabama are gorgeous in the fall – and what better excuse is there to get out of town and explore the majesty of the season?

Asheville, NC, in the western part of the state, is well-known for its fall foliage. The Blue Ridge Mountains and the Great Smoky Mountains feature 6,000-foot elevations, supporting one of the longest fall color seasons in the country. With a window that lasts up to five weeks or more, you’ve still got plenty of time to plan a long weekend trip.

If you’re looking for a little urban adventure to go with your nature-tripping, try Atlanta, GA, on for size. The landscape surrounding the city is blazing with color right now and you can spend your evenings discovering Atlanta’s nightlife or culinary scene.

Lakeside Executive Suites is dedicated to supporting local businesses in Weston, FL, with flexible office solutions that answer every need. Drop by for a tour today and find out how we can help you get things done.
