Ending the Year with Charitable Giving
Posted On November 30, 2018 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

As the end of 2018 draws closer, our thoughts naturally turn to the holidays and giving. For businesses of any size, charitable giving has long been a way to end the year right. It’s a great way to ease the tax burden, but best of all, it’s a way to get involved with causes that mean something to you and to make a difference in lives of those less fortunate.

At Lakeside Executive Suites in Weston, FL, we have chosen a cause that is very dear to our hearts. Children’s Harbor is a community organization dedicated to helping children in foster care, siblings, and teen mothers a place to belong and call home during some of the most trying times of their young lives.

They provide residential services and more, offering counseling, mentoring, and a way for siblings in care to stay together while issues such as abuse or neglect are being addressed.

They also offer residential maternity support for pregnant foster teens between the ages of 14 and 18 years, helping to break the cycle of abuse by helping them complete their education while addressing medical, psychological, and mental health issues that may impede their progress to independent living.

Of course, there is so much more that Children’s Harbor does, but the point is that they are providing essential supports for vulnerable children as well as the people who need it most. During the holidays, it is especially important to ensure that the children in their care have the ability to delight in the season and smile with the joy it brings. This is something we feel should be their right and we are proud to count ourselves as part of the solution.

 

Charitable giving for businesses: how to do it

If you are a new business, you may not have thought a great deal about charitable giving and what it means to you.

Here are some tips that you might find helpful:

1.    Choose a charity that has meaning to you

Just as Children’s Harbor has meaning to us, you can find a cause that pulls at your heartstrings. Heart and Stroke, cancer research, a local hospice, church group, humane society, homeless shelter, or mission are all great organizations you can consider.

2.    Time is just as valuable as money

Even if you don’t have a lot to give in the way of cash, you could find ways to help that are hugely supportive that don’t necessarily involve money. Help out by donating your time or business services to a local charity. Saving them money is just as valuable as giving it.

3.    Do your research

Don’t get taken in by a scammer this holiday season. There are plenty of disreputable people out there ready to relieve you of your cash for a cause that is either shady or non-existent. Check national non-profit databases like Give.org or Charity Navigator to be sure your donations are not falling into the wrong hands.

Do you have a favorite charity? We’d love to hear about it! Drop by Lakeside Executive Suites in Weston anytime and find out more about how we can help.

 

Make your Meetings More Productive
Posted On May 9, 2017 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

Meetings are a necessary part of doing business, and essential to a team environment where there is input required from all of your colleagues. But if the mere mention of a meeting has your workforce running for the hills, maybe its time to rethink your meeting strategy. Meetings should be productive, they should encourage new ideas through discussion, and help co-workers understand what others are concerned about. However, if half of the room tunes out before its even begun, your meeting productivity is already out the window.

Here are some sure-fire meeting management tips to supercharge your productivity and maybe change the way your team comes to think of a meeting in general:

Meeting management rule #1: Be realistic.

Dont try to cover a hundred things in one hour. Having this kind of expectation always leads to the feeling that you didnt get anything done at all. Look at the key points you need to address, and focus on that.

 Meeting management rule #2: Make an agenda in advance.

Second to being realistic, having a clear agenda before you walk in is probably job one. take some time to consider everything that needs to be discussed, and prepare a list of topics to be covered, with bullets under each item to stimulate discussion. This will also help you remember to cover everything that needs to be addressed. Then, make a copy of this agenda for every attendee and have them ready at each chair when they arrive.

Meeting management rule #3: Make sure your technology works BEFORE you start the meeting.

There is nothing as frustrating and time wasting as taking 10-15 minutes to get your technology up and running. Make sure your meeting room is fully equipped with the latest technology and offers a plug and play environment so you can easily connect to devices such as a smart TV and a VOIP phone for conferencing

Meeting management rule #4: Everybody should have something to bring to the table.

Make it imperative that each person is responsible for one thing in the meeting. If its a general meeting, then assign each individual to bring an issue into the meeting they would like to discuss. This will keep them on point through the proceedings and help them feel like they are actually contributing.

Meeting management rule #5: Only invite people who need to be there.

If youre talking about finance, you dont need sales and marketing personnel in your meeting. If its about human resources, you dont need sales. Make sure the right people are at the meeting. If you only invite essential people, it will be easier to stay on track.

Meeting management rule #6: Dont stray off topic.

Sometimes its inevitable that the discussion goes off in another direction, but if you see it veering too far afield, even if its interesting and valid in a broader sense, rein it in and table it for another time. You only have so much time.

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.

 

Flexible Office Space for Your Growing Business
Posted On July 21, 2016 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

Starting a new business can be expensive and time-consuming.  When you simply want to focus on your business, you will soon find that opening an office can be more challenging than you originally planned.  All too often, small businesses settle for a less-than-desirable location because of the up-front cost required to establish a new office.  Some of these challenges include long-term leases, purchasing of furniture, IT infrastructure, and the management of the space. Flexible office space, like Lakeside Executive Suites, makes it possible for businesses at any stage to have a professional office in a great location at an affordable rate.  Most importantly, the workspace solutions offered by flexible office spaces are turn-key and can help get your business up and running immediately with minimal cost.

Are you a startup?

Over the past 3 years, virtual office business at Lakeside Executive Suites has expanded by 30%.  When asking our clients why they decided to sign up with us, the consensus is that a PO box or a home address does not represent the level of professionalism that they are looking to portray.  With a customized virtual office plan, your business can project the professional image needed to succeed in today’s corporate environments. Services included in virtual office plans are a professional business address, mail and package receipt services, live professional answering, business support services, 24/7 access to meeting rooms, touchdown space and community café with gourmet coffee.  Virtual office plans provide highly desired flexibility to help your growing business thrive without the large office overhead or long-term contractual obligations.

Business is growing?

Your small business is growing but you are not quite ready to make the investment in a costly office build-out or a long term lease.   With a private office in a flexible workspace, your home based business or virtual office can expand to full-time workspace with flexible terms, allowing you scale your office with your growing business.  A private office space can be customized to include a fully furnished office, live professional answering service, fast & secure internet, 24/7 access to meeting rooms, business support services and community café with gourmet coffee. Making the transition from part-time to full-time office space in a flexible office environment combines the freedom of having your own office space with the convenience and benefits of being part of a community.

Need a Place to Meet?

Give your team the resources they need to succeed without breaking your budget.  Need a place to meet with your clients or your team?  You can easily schedule a day office or meeting room in a flexible office space with no monthly commitment.  On-demand meeting rooms are available by the hour, day, or week with services such as catering and notary available upon request.

The 411 of Serviced Office Space
Posted On February 15, 2016 Posted By: Author

What is a serviced office?

A serviced office is an office space fitted and furnished in a professional business environment. Unlike traditional office space, it comes equipped with many benefits and is ready for immediate occupancy.

Why chose a serviced office?

In a competitive marketplace, time, money and effort are the three key components in driving business. Operating a business in a serviced office is a way to optimize all three of these elements simultaneously.

What are some of the benefits of a serviced office?

Serviced office space providers take on the responsibility of maintaining the office premise and providing a range of business services such as personalized telephone answering, administrative support, conference and meeting facilities, and high speed Internet access. Serviced offices are typically found in desirable business districts at prices most start-ups can afford.

What is the difference between a serviced office and a traditional office?

One of the main differences between a serviced office and a traditional office is the cost savings. By doing away with initial set-up costs, furniture and decorating expenses, and maintenance costs, you give your business the best start possible at generating revenue. With a serviced office, your business also gains access to meeting space and the latest technology without the cost of building, furnishing, or purchasing it. Serviced offices also have flexible, renewable agreements which allow you to “test the waters” in new markets without a large financial obligation.

What types of businesses can benefit from a serviced office space?

A serviced office is a viable option for any type of business. If your business can benefit from a professional, furnished workspace, personalized phone answering, a prestigious business address, meeting space, state-of-the-art telecommunications system, and day-to-day administrative functions performed by a professional administrative team, then your business can benefit from a serviced office.

The growing need for flexibility and the ability to respond and adapt to the rapidly changing needs of the marketplace are what keep serviced office space a top contender for workspace solutions. Come see for yourself what a full service office space can do for your business at Lakeside Executive Suites, or call (954) 389-2511 to learn more.
