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.

Working Remotely: Is It All It’s Cracked Up to Be?
Posted On September 11, 2020 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

The working world has been surviving these past months on a steady diet of remote employment. And while it has been necessary, many experts are beginning to rethink the assertion that working remotely is just as good as working in an office.

While we’ve seen the benefits of remote work, we’re also starting to see the pitfalls of hastily-installed work-from-home systems. So what’s the truth? Do the pros and cons of remote work balance out? And is remote work more, less, or equally as effective as office employment?

The Truth About Working Remotely

For the first few months of the workforce’s pandemic-induced isolation, things were just fine. Workers were adjusting surprisingly well, given the circumstances. Granted, there was a bit of a learning curve, but everyone seemed to catch on relatively well. Things looked promising. Surely, this was the beginning of a new era for employees everywhere.

But after four, five, six, and seven months, it is apparent that there are flaws in the system.

The conditions leading to this mass migration from office to remote work weren’t making the situation any easier. The pandemic and its associated isolation, anxiety, and uncertainty took a toll on workers stuck at home. The subsequent mental, physical, financial, and emotional strain quickly became taxing for workers.

When The Workplace is Your Home: Where’s The Balance?

Another major problem? A significant chunk of workers struggled to maintain a healthy balance between their work and home lives. Home was too distracting. Whether that was because of entertainment, chores, children, or other family members, some workers found the home environment simply wasn’t conducive for productivity.

Employees missed the social interactions inherent in the office working model. The truth is, nobody understands your work situation quite like your coworkers. Your toddler or your dog can’t compare to an office pal when it comes to venting frustrations about quarterly reports.

Teamwork Without The Team Spirit

Perhaps worse than the inability to socialize with coworkers was the struggle to complete team projects. Admittedly, collaborative work wasn’t exactly a breeze to begin with. Remotely, however, teamwork became a bit of a nightmare. It’s harder to organize, share data, and hit milestones and deadlines.

Teams were already struggling to communicate within their own office and with third-party companies. Where productivity dwindled, frustration grew. The pressure was mounting, with no end in sight.

Beyond the struggles of at-home workers, employers and managers experience difficulties of their own. When communication isn’t up to snuff, everybody suffers.

Is Remote Work Sustainable?

It is becoming clear that many of the strategies implemented were not built with longevity in mind. Even if workers can stick it out, maintaining this remote work model is simply not feasible in the long-term. Systems were not given a chance to fully integrate into the working model before COVID hit. Some of them were half-baked and rushed out in an effort to maintain productivity.

So we have to ask once again, does remote work have its benefits? Undoubtedly, the answer is yes. It’s allowed companies to survive in an extremely trying time. But is it sustainable in the long term? Perhaps not. Only time will tell.

If your teams depend on a remote working environment, Lakeview Executive Suites in Weston, FL, is here to help. Reach out today to learn more about what we do and how we do it.

5 Skills to Cultivate for Better Virtual Communication
Posted On August 21, 2020 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

Let’s face it: over the past six months, the world has been turned on its head. From grandmothers to entrepreneurs, everyone has been forced to reckon with new forms of communication and networking. So whether you’re instant messaging or conducting video business conferences, it’s important to communicate clearly, be respectful, and make yourself understood.

Since our new reality likely won’t change dramatically for the next while, it’s critical to understand how to conduct business over the web. Your working relationships depend on it, and the future success of your business hangs in the balance.

How to Optimize Your Virtual Communication

1.     Use the Best Technology 

Virtual communication is manifold: it’s emailing, instant messaging, conference calls, video chats, and one-on-one check-ins. While all these methods are effective, video calls have the benefit of allowing us to pick up on non-verbal cues. Eye contact and body language are extremely telling, especially in group settings. When choosing modes of communication, first, know what works best for your team. Then, choose the best technology for the scenario. Lastly, make sure your team has the right tools and knows how to use them.

2.     Time It Right

Timing is two-pronged: first, be sure to set a schedule for communication with your employees or coworkers. By having a designated time or day for meetings or check-ins, you cultivate a sense of routine, and your team will get into a flow. Second, when you’re in the meetings themselves, it’s vital to stay on track. Respect everybody’s time, and use it wisely. Create an agenda or itinerary to help you stay focused.

3.     Be Considerate

This is a difficult time for everyone, so be conscious of how your team may be feeling. While technology helps to bring you together, it isn’t a substitute for real-life interaction. Members might be feeling isolated, and the energy might be different. Understand that, while you may be meeting together, you can’t always see what’s going on behind the scenes. Be patient, listen, ask questions, and be available to answer them too. Take the time to understand and don’t jump to conclusions. Your team will be grateful for it.

4.     Be Goal-Oriented

Virtual work and communication make it difficult to create momentum. What projects are urgent? What are the timelines? And how should you approach these tasks as a team? Help your employees by tracking progress. Assign measurable objectives and set milestones with actionable items along the way. Update your team regularly, so everyone is on the same page. 

5.     Open and Honest

Keeping open, clear lines of communication does wonders for both team building and achieving your goals. Well-informed employees are set up to perform well. It’s essential that your team feels heard and that they can express themselves and offer input. As a leader, you must communicate openly with them and allow them to do the same. You might be surprised how it can improve interpersonal relationships – not to mention team morale and efficiency!

Virtual communication can be tricky, but you can make your team’s transition to the web virtually seamless with patience, planning, and understanding.

For professional, flexible office support when you need it, Lakeside Executive Suites is here to help. Reach out today, and let’s talk about what we can do for you.

Four Tips to Help Build Better Habits
Posted On July 27, 2020 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

It is challenging to build good habits, but it’s even harder to make them stick. It seems like every time we promise ourselves to do better, live better, and be better, we get hamstrung by the sheer enormity of the task in front of us.

How can you build good habits when you’re running-off-your-feet busy? We’ve got a few ideas!

Good Habits vs. Comfortable Habits

The trick to creating new habits and making them stick is that you first have to unlearn a lifetime of bad habits and decision-making strategies. It is by no means an easy process. But taking the time to lay the foundations for your new practices will make all the difference in the long run.

Bad habits can become comfortable. We are complacent about their roles in our lives. Perhaps we believe that a particular event could change our lives, or one big paycheck could make all the difference. Perhaps they could. But the thing is, these blessings don’t just fall into our laps. Good things come from hard work, determination, structure, and consistency. 

Unproductive habits won’t help you achieve those things. Bad habits are inefficient, frustrating, and cause burnout, which means we may never reach the goals we are striving for. If your habits are not serving you effectively, then it is time for a change.

1.     Identify a Need

The first step to making a positive change is identifying the areas that you want to work on. Take some time to think—really think—about what aspects of your life you want to change and how you’re going to change them. These thoughts need to come from within you, and they need to be realistic. 

2.     Dedicate Yourself

To stick with something, you have to really want it. But it also needs to be achievable. If you overreach at the start, you will burn out quickly. Outline the reasons why you want (and need) to make the change. Remind yourself regularly with affirmations and reflection. If it’s helpful, share your goals with someone who can hold you accountable. 

3.     Have a Plan

Every successful endeavor starts with a good plan. Perhaps that means writing out your goals and listing the steps that will help you get there. Maybe you work better with a partner. Do whatever is most effective for you. Seeing the path ahead of you is crucial to getting you where you want to be.

4.     Easy Does It

Many good habits will not be easy to form, but one way to wedge your foot in the door is by starting with something simple and intuitive. Start slow and lean into it. There is plenty of time to build up momentum, but you need to have a solid foundation. Prioritize consistency over difficulty. You climb a mountain one step at a time, and it should be the same for habit-building. 

Building habits is hard. That’s why it takes a lifetime to do it. But with determination, patience, a goal, and a reliable support system, change is possible. Good habits can, without a doubt, help you to live your best life.

Here’s an excellent habit to cultivate; ask for help when you need it! Lakeside Executive Suites offers professional office solutions, including virtual office packages, to help you get more done. Reach out today to learn more.

Open For Business: Reopening After the Lockdown
Posted On June 15, 2020 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

It’s not easy for a business to bounce back from perhaps the greatest economic downturn of our lifetime.

In all likelihood, things will not go back to the way they used to be. Our world, and the way we do business, has already seen some fundamental changes. As the impact of COVID-19 continues to spread far and wide, business owners everywhere have pivoted in an attempt to save their companies. Some have been successful, and others less so.

Today, we’re finally starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Many of us are asking ourselves: how do we move forward from this? We can’t dwell in the past anymore. Business is all about looking ahead and planning for the future.

Creating A Solid Reopening Plan

So what can we do? We’re not out of the woods yet, but as of now, we must start planning our next moves. Businesses will have to hit the ground running to build up a head of steam as the world begins to reopen.

Here are a few steps to getting your business back on its feet as restrictions begin to ease.

1.     Marching Orders

Bear down and prepare to make binding executive decisions. Gather your team around you and brief them on the changes to be made. You’ll have to make some tough choices about who is permitted to reenter the physical office while others stay at home. Formulate a plan regarding physical safety measures; establish new policies and procedures before you start to accept customers again.

2.     Assess the Damage

Take a long, hard look at your business plan. Going forward, it’s going to look a lot different than it used to. Your assets, supply chains, and likely your entire business model has taken a hit. Formulate a realistic business valuation and approach the situation with an open mind and through a pragmatic lens.

3.     Ask the Hard Questions

Now is the time to be realistic with yourself and your employees. While we all want to hope for the best, it’s important to plan for the worst. Have a contingency plan in case the virus deals your business another blow.

Ask yourself: how long will this go on, and how long can we afford to ride it out? What do customers want and need right now? If they want or need your products or services, how much are they willing to pay for them? How can you convert consumer interest into actual sales? How can you meet their needs?

4.     Move Forward, Not Back

Don’t cling to past successes. Adapting your ways of thinking and using innovative strategies will make all the difference right now. Embrace new channels of sales, new methodologies, and modes of communication. One of the worst things your business can do right now is stay mired in the past, unable to move forward.

5.     Play the Long Game

Ultimately, you’re going to need long-term solutions to sustain your business. Even though the worst has passed, the market will continue to be rocked by shockwaves for weeks, months, and even years to come.

In conclusion, don’t take shortcuts, as they will only lead to short-term success. Invest your time, energy, and money into sustainable strategies that will serve your needs well into the future.

Above all, be kind and patient with yourself, your staff, and your business. You’ll all need each other’s support to face the future.

Tips on Dealing with Uncertainty in Your Business
Posted On May 15, 2020 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

If there’s one thing we know to be certain, it’s that life is filled with uncertainty. There’s doubt that you’ll encounter adversity at one time or another, especially in the realm of business. Business is unpredictable by nature. It’s risky, but if you play your cards right, you can win big.

Knowing the risks and being well-prepared will help you make the best of any situation that may come your way. So what are the most likely factors to cause uncertainty in business?

  • The Economy. The economy is constantly in flux. But when it experiences a major downturn, you have to be ready to ride it out.
  • Health Factors. SARS, Ebola, and now COVID-19 are all perfect examples of how illness can severely impact business proceedings on a global scale. But even something as small as an office-wide cold can take its toll.
  • Shifting Trends. Businesses live and die by shifting consumer behavior. Having your finger on the pulse will allow you to interpret the indicators better.

 

Tips To Help Your Business Weather Uncertainty

1.     Anticipate 

No one can accurately predict the future. What you can do is anticipate potential scenarios. Don’t rule anything out just because it may seem unlikely. Very few people could have predicted the catastrophic outcome of the novel coronavirus. However, businesses that were prepared with contingency plans and were able to move quickly to put them into practice are better off than those who were slow to act.

Beyond that, prepare yourself for multiple potential outcomes. Don’t assume that the likeliest conclusion will be the one that sticks. The more situations you anticipate and plan for, the more effectively you’ll be able to respond when the time comes.

2.     Stay on Top of Current Events

Keeping abreast of market trends, economic indicators, and consumer demands will help you make the best decisions for your business. And while you can’t predict exactly how these factors will play out, there are usually signs along the way. It’s important to know how to read them. Get educated about national developments and federal decision-making that may impact your industry. Stay informed, and you’ll always be ahead of the curve.

3.     Static Cling

In periods of uncertainty, change is likely to follow. When it happens, your business needs to be able to adapt to the times. Don’t cling to the exclusively tried and true. Methods that have worked in the past may not always serve you in the future. That doesn’t mean you need to discard them entirely, but don’t let old thinking prevent you from allowing innovation to thrive.

4.     Keep Connected

While technology is an excellent tool, relationships are the true heart of the business. Don’t let your personal and professional connections fall by the wayside. It’s essential to maintain healthy business relationships, as these are what will pull you through the rough patches. Connections help keep you stable, even when all else is uncertain.

Is your business ready to handle uncertainty? Don’t wait! Expect the unexpected and plan for whatever may come. And if you need a little business support during these uncertain times, Lakeside Executive Suites is always ready to lend a hand. Reach out today and let us know how we can help!

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.

Resources for SMEs and Entrepreneurs to Weather the COVID-19 Pandemic
Posted On March 30, 2020 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

As the economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic starts to affect entrepreneurs and small businesses in Lakeside have created a compilation of local and federal aid available to our clients to help them weather this emergency successfully. 

U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA)

This government agency provides support to entrepreneurs and small businesses. They summarize their activities as the “3 C’s” of Capital, Contracts, and Counseling. 

As an entrepreneur or small business owner, you might want to look into their Disaster Loan Programs, which have been updated to reflect the latest developments with regards to the Coronavirus Pandemic and the impact it already has had on the economy. 

Through their Economic Injury Disaster Loan Program, every small business owner is eligible to apply for a low-interest loan due to Coronavirus (COVID-19) of up to $2 million in working capital.

The SBA also has several loan resources available, including express loans, microloans, exporting loans, and many more.

Head to the SBA’s website for more information.

Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act or the CARES Act

Signed into law on March 27th, 2020, this bill addresses the economic impacts of, and otherwise responds to, the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak. The bill authorizes emergency loans to distressed businesses. The bill also provides funding for $1,200 tax rebates to individuals, with an additional $500 payments per qualifying child. The rebate begins phasing out when incomes exceed $75,000 (or $150,000 for joint filers). The bill establishes limits on requirements for employers to provide paid leave.

Facebook Small Business Grants Program

Facebook is also offering financial support to small businesses in the form of cash grants and ad credits for up to 30,000 eligible businesses worldwide. They will be taking in applications in the next few weeks and you can sign up to receive more information as it becomes available. 

Check out their website here.

The Florida Small Business Emergency Bridge Loan Program

This state-funded, short term, interest-free working capital loan program of up to $50,000 is available to Florida for-profit businesses with 2 to 100 employees. You can apply until May 8, 2020.

How to Thrive in a Coworking Space
Posted On March 12, 2020 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

Although the concept of coworking emerged with the hackerspaces of Berlin in the 1990s, the first coworking space was founded in 2005 in San Francisco by a guy named Brad Neuberg.

While the hackerspaces were similar, Neuberg’s vision of coworking is much closer to what it is today: a workspace dedicated to supporting independent workers, providing them with enough community and shared resources to help them thrive.

Why Do People Thrive in a Coworking Environment?

If you are a remote worker or a freelancer, you might think you can work from anywhere. As long as you have an internet connection, you can work, and all is right with the world.

However, if you are still working from home or the local coffee shop, you also know that there are inherent obstacles to getting your work done. Distractions, noise, and the lack of privacy are a detriment to quality work, but working alone isn’t the answer either. It can get lonely, and you might pine for the days where your coworkers were just on the other side of the cubicle.

These reasons—all of them—are why people like you thrive in a coworking space. You have access to a desk or seating that is conducive to work. There’s always lightning-fast internet, state-of-the-art office equipment, and best of all, it costs a fraction of what a traditional office does.

What makes a coworking space so magical? One word: community.

Just as Brad Neuberg was searching for a meaningful connection, we all need to feel like we’re not alone.

As a solo worker, you might feel disconnected and maybe a little discouraged because you work and communicate almost exclusively online. There is no teamwork, camaraderie, collaboration, and no culture, no networking, no meetings, no way to tell if you are doing great work or if you’re just flailing. And if you are—flailing, that is—there’s nobody to help you get back on track.

Community and culture are just as important as skills and experience in terms of driving results. Just because you are working on your own doesn’t mean this is not true for you, too.

Even if they aren’t working on the same projects or for the same company, studies show that coworkers are more likely to thrive than those who choose to work from home. Coworkers see their work as more meaningful, and they feel a strong sense of identity with the community, although they remain autonomous.

In fact, working with people who are engaged in different kinds of work can make your own identity stronger. Case in point, interactions in a coworking space often revolve around describing what we do, and this activity alone makes our work more exciting and unique.

As a bonus, there are no office politics to navigate, no bad managers, and no pressure to adopt a “work persona” so that you’ll fit in.

In the end, coworkers thrive because they have everything they need—beyond fast internet and desk space—to do so.

Six Best Golf Courses in and Around Fort Lauderdale
Posted On February 21, 2020 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

Whether you are in Fort Lauderdale for business or pleasure, if you’re a golfer, you know that there is no better place to be to indulge your favorite pastime. Many courses feature stunning ocean views and palm trees waving in the breeze, and the bountiful sunshine means you’ll be spending more time on the course, which is exactly where you want to be.

The Six Best Golf Courses in Ft. Lauderdale

To help you find your golf haven, we’ve picked our top six favorite public golf courses. Try them all and let us know which ones you like best!

Coral Ridge Country Club

This 18-hole championship course features waterfront vistas and meticulously manicured grounds. The country club itself opened in 1954 and is a favorite with locals and visitors alike. The club also includes 11 tennis courts, a swimming pool, and three restaurants.

Grande Oaks Golf Club

Perhaps the Grande Oaks’ biggest claim to fame is that it was the site where the movie Caddyshack was filmed. Originally called the Rolling Hills Country Club, it was one of South Florida’s first championship courses. Since it opened in 1959, it has been a favorite course for many famous people, including Jackie Gleason, Joe Namath, and George C. Scott.

Davie Golf Club

Known for its undulating greens, the Davie Golf Club is a challenging 18-hole course designed by Arnold Palmer’s senior golf course architect himself. Formerly known as the Arrowhead Golf & Tennis, the course opened in 1973 but underwent a major re-design in 2008, resulting in the unique lakes and rolling slopes you see today.

Jacaranda Golf Club

Considered by many to be in the top three of all golf courses in South Florida – including private clubs – Jacaranda Golf Club is considered semi-private. However, visitors can take advantage of lessons, golf vacations, and various golf packages to suit any skill level. The club features two courses, two restaurants, and is host to several championship events.

City of Lauderhill Golf Course

Located right in the middle of Broward County and just off of I-95, the City of Lauderhill Golf Course is an 18-hole executive-length course that has been delighting local golfers since 1968. Located in the middle of the city, it’s easy to enjoy a few rounds in the afternoon, giving you a respite from the office and making your meetings a little more interesting.

Colony West Country Club

Rated in the top 50 public courses in America by Golf Digest, the Colony West Country Club is an 18-hole course that is open to the public. Currently recently underwent a major facelift and reopened last fall with a brand-new clubhouse, cart barn, and a stunning lake expansion.

These are just a few of our favorite golf courses around Ft. Lauderdale, but they’re not the only ones. Which courses do you love to play? Let us know!
