Apps Every Entrepreneur Should Be Using
Posted On September 26, 2019 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

Pretty much everything you need to do, whether in life or in business, there’s an app for that.

When you are heading up your own business, you generally wear many hats. On any given day, you’re the sales team, the accounting department, admin services, and customer support. It’s all possible, but at the risk of running yourself ragged, a little help goes a long way.

Productivity and time management are vital entrepreneurial skills. If you’re flying solo, you want to do everything you need to do as efficiently as possible. But if you can’t afford a staff to run interference for you, no rule says you can’t get a little help from an electronic friend.

Best productivity apps for entrepreneurs

To help you narrow down the field, we’ve curated some of our favorite apps right here:

Evernote

Evernote makes task management effortless. Whether you’re taking notes in a meeting or sharing documents with colleagues, or collecting ideas as you browse the web, Evernote will be your virtual back pocket.

Slack

If you work with remote teams, Slack is the app for you. It enables you to create different groups, message people individually or as a team, share files, and more. There is even a feature that allows you to place phone calls from within the app itself. It also syncs between your devices so you can go from desktop to mobile without missing a beat.

Pocket

We all get inspired in different ways. When you’re browsing the web or an app, it’s easy to pass over something juicy just because you don’t have the time. Pocket is an app that helps you organize all of these thoughts by allowing you to save links, documents, articles, videos, tweets, and more for later viewing. With more than 1500 integrations, you’ll be a veritable fountain of new ideas. Best of all, it’s cloud-based so you can access your saved information on any device, anytime.

Mint

Having trouble balancing your accounts or sticking to your budget? Mint keeps your money organized, helps you stay on top of your bills, and allows you to create budgets that really work. Manage all of your accounts from a single interface that can be accessed on your smartphone. It even offers customized money-saving investment tips that can help keep your finances in great shape as you build your business.

Dropbox

The tried-and-true cloud storage solution keeps getting better and better. In addition to being an online locker for your files, Dropbox allows you to share files with anybody, even if they don’t have a Dropbox account. You can also edit versions of files from within the app. It comes with a couple of GBs of free storage, but upgrading to 2TB is as low as $9.99 per month.

These are just a handful of the apps we use every day. Do you have any favorites? We’d love to hear about them. Drop by Lakeview Executive Suites for a tour today and let’s talk tech!

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. Drop by today for a tour or reach out to us directly to learn more.

Five Best Podcasts You Should Be Listening to Right Now
Posted On June 17, 2019 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

Podcasts are gaining ground in popular culture with topics that range from serial murder to sex to the mysteries of the universe and beyond. But with more than 750,000 podcasts and 30 million episodes to choose from, where do you start?

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. Hosted by Rebecca Jarvis, a journalist who is known for her interviews with some of the biggest names in business and technology, this podcast takes the listener on a journey through the three-year investigation and includes interviews with investors, former patients, employees, and the deposition of Elizabeth Holmes. 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)

Hosted by UK comedic writers Jason Hazeley and Joel Morris, Rule of Three talks to comedians and people who create comedy about things that are funny to them. The breadth and diversity of guests and the stuff they get into is brilliant, and it gives us a window into how some of the most talented comics and comedic writers of our time get inspired. Listen on Apple Podcasts.

5.    The Habitat (non-fiction, science)

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.

Doing business locally: Everybody Wins
Posted On May 31, 2019 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

No matter how big or small the town you live in may be, everybody in the community benefits when you do business locally. From the intrinsic character of the place to the way people interact, supporting local businesses just makes sense.

To better illustrate the benefits that small businesses bring to the table, here are five ways that demonstrate how going local makes a difference:

1.     Unique identity

Every town, every city you visit in the world – each one has a particular thing that makes it unique. From the storefronts to the types of shops that populate the main street, local businesses are the beating heart that feeds the population with energy. For many places, that character attracts visitors, new companies, and people looking for the perfect place to put down roots. As the community grows, it becomes stronger, and everybody thrives.

2.     Creating opportunity

When you support local businesses, you are keeping community resources at home and creating new opportunities for entrepreneurs, new business ventures, and young people just entering the workforce. The more options there are, the more likely it is that the brightest and most talented people will stay and channel their energy right back into the local economy.

3.     Competition breeds innovation

The more shops, services, and businesses there are in the local economy, the more competitive the business climate will be. Companies need to stand out from the rest and will go the extra mile to please their customers – who can then reap the benefits of new ideas, better services, diverse product offerings, and a healthy, vibrant, cooperative community spirit.

4.     Environmental advantages

Choosing to do business locally reduces our carbon footprint in a big way. For instance, choosing to shop at a local store instead of ordering online means fewer delivery trucks on the road, and so less fuel burned. It means fewer freight trains on the rails and therefore fewer derailments. With fewer ships on the ocean, our marine life will not be as endangered, and fewer cargo planes in the air mean fewer delays at the airport, and less air and noise pollution in general.

5.     Keep those tax dollars at home

When we choose to do business locally, our tax dollars stay in the community, strengthening the economy and helping to support infrastructure and other critical initiatives. In most cities and towns, about ten percent of all sales taxes collected go directly back into public coffers. They fund essential public services like transit, roadways, bike lanes, parks, schools, and so much more – the very things that make your town such a wonderful place to live.

Every community is a living, breathing entity unto itself, and like any living thing, it needs sustenance to grow and thrive. At Lakeside Executive Suites, we are committed to strengthening our local economy and supporting the small businesses that make Weston such a great place to live. Drop by today and discover how we can help.

The Many Benefits of a Standing Desk
Posted On April 29, 2019 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

Standing desks are becoming more common in the modern workplace. Employees love them because they alleviate the monotony of sitting all day, and employers love them because it keeps their workforce happy and healthy.

Let’s look at some of the many benefits of a standing desk:

1.     Sitting for long hours is bad for your body and mind

It’s been proven through scientific study that a sedentary life can promote atrophy – not just in the muscles, but in the brain as well. The best way to avoid the damage is to avoid sitting for long periods of time. Even if you’re tied to your workstation all day, a standing desk allows you to change it up, adjust for different heights, and generally keep your blood flowing.

2.     Standing desks may reduce the risk of chronic disease

Some of the medical issues that standing desks can help to prevent are obesity, diabetes, and heart disease, simply by raising your metabolism. One study concluded that standing while you work can actually add two years to your expected life span.

3.     Standing desks may help you lose weight

The number of calories you burn in a day working at a standing desk is significantly more than it would be if you were sitting. Depending on your gender and how much lean muscle mass you already have, you could burn up to .2 calories more per minute. Hey, it’s probably not a substitute for the gym, but every little bit counts!

4.     Standing desks reduce back pain

Lower back pain is the scourge of anyone who works at a desk all day. No matter how perfectly engineered your ergonomic chair is, you are at risk for muscle aches, bulging discs, and more. Most of this pain is caused by postural stress, which can be alleviated by standing. An adjustable standing desk allows you to position yourself optimally so that you can avoid low back pain. A 2014 study showed that people who suffered from back pain noticed a 32 percent improvement after using a standing desk for just a couple of weeks. Another study showed that upper back and neck pain were reduced by more than 50 percent.

5.     Standing desks improve your mood

People that use standing desks tend to be happier, healthier, and less stressed-out than their chair-bound counterparts. Movement itself can be beneficial in boosting energy levels and attention-span, but it translates to a better quality of life overall.

6.     Standing desks boost productivity

If you’re used to sitting at your desk, you might be concerned about how it’s going to affect your productivity if you change things up. The truth is, if you feel better, you’re going to have greater focus and work more efficiently, which means your productivity will get a boost.

What’s the Difference Between a Dedicated Desk and Coworking?
Posted On April 16, 2019 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

With all the flexible office options available, you might be wondering what the differences are in each program and, ultimately, which one is right for you. If you are trying to decide between a dedicated desk and a coworking membership, we’ve put together a handy guide to help you make your choice.

Coworking: pros and cons

Coworking features an open-office environment and amenities like business-grade internet, copy machine, printers, and complimentary coffee and tea. You have 24/7 secure access, so you can work whenever you want, and on-demand amenities like meeting rooms and administrative support are available to you if you need them.

Coworking pros

  1. Coworking is affordable. You can join for the day, week, month, or you could purchase a long-term membership for access to the space and all its amenities.
  2. Coworking is flexible. You have complete freedom to come and go as you please or even discontinue your membership if you’re not going to need the space for a while.
  3. Coworking supports your business growth. If you need to hire new employees, you don’t have to worry about outfitting a whole new office for them. Your coworking space allows you to scale up or down as needed.
  4. Coworking is collaborative. Whether you find talented people to help you grow your business or connect with others who need your expertise, it’s a vibrant and creative environment that can help you get where you want to be.

Coworking cons

  1. Little to no privacy. Coworking is an open-office concept, so if you need to make a lot of phone calls or require quiet to do your work, you might not have much control over the situation.
  2. You have to take your stuff with you when you leave. Since you are sharing a space, you don’t leave your computer or other work items behind, which might be an inconvenience.
  3. Lots of distractions. If you are easily distracted, a coworking space might encourage your procrastination.

Dedicated desk: pros and cons

Still unsure? Let’s take a deeper dive and look at what a dedicated desk can offer:

Dedicated desk pros

  1. You have your own desk. You have your own storage space, and you won’t have to pack up your computer when you leave. If you prefer to work with multiple screens, this is great news.
  2. Professional business address. A dedicated desk comes with access to our business address, which can be used on all your printed and online marketing collateral.
  3. You can personalize your workspace with photos or desk amenities.
  4. You have access to all the benefits of coworking, with an additional layer of features.

Dedicated desk cons

  1. Potential for distractions. You are still in an open office, so the tone in the room can change quickly as people come and go.
  2. You are stuck in one place, looking at the same view every day.
  3. Dedicated desks are more expensive than coworking.

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.

Are you interested in touring our coworking space? We’d love to show you the finer points of what we do. Drop by for a tour of Lakeside Executive Suites in Weston, FL, and let us show you how we can help.

Faces of Weston with Samuel Rubert
Posted On February 19, 2019 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

Did you know that there is a field in Alcohol & Beverage Law?  Neither did we until Samuel Rubert joined Lakeside.  We had the pleasure of sitting down with him and learning more about his unique business.  Samuel Rubert Law is a full-service law firm specializing in the alcoholic beverage industry.

They represent industry members, restaurants, bars, hotels, liquor stores, brewers, distillers, wineries, and wholesalers in all of their legal needs.  They manage transactions, including purchases and sales of business and assets, stock sales, leasing, and coordinate financing for our clients.  They represent them in obtaining all of the necessary licenses and permits to operate an alcoholic beverage business, including federal, state, and local licensing.  And when their clients need it, they aid in litigation with the regulating agencies (administrative litigation) as well as commercial litigation over contracts.

Samuel has an interesting journey into law and the alcoholic beverage industry.  After graduating from Columbia University with a bachelor’s degree in Math and Religion, he enrolled in culinary school at the French Culinary Institute in NYC.  “I wanted to explore the field after working as a bar back and bartender in college.”

After graduating, he began working at a 3-starred restaurant as a line cook.  Although he fell in love with the industry, working nights, weekends and holidays was not appealing.  So, he made the decision to enroll in law school at the University of Miami.  “I was hoping to be a ‘restaurant lawyer,’ not knowing if such a thing existed and I was fortunate to find a lawyer to mentor me, and the rest is history,” Samuel recalls. 

When asked what is something most people don’t know about your industry, Samuel laughed and said, “that the alcoholic beverage industry even exists”.  He continued, “most people don’t even think that there are Alcoholic Beverage Law attorneys.  Most people think attorneys spend all day in court or on real estate transactions, but when you stop to think about the fact that there are TWO (2) Constitutional Amendments relating to alcohol and counting all of the alcoholic beverage outlets you pass on your way to work every day, you start to realize how heavily regulated and widespread the industry is.  These businesses have unique and particular needs that vary, sometimes slightly and sometimes greatly, from most other businesses, and we provide the insight and expertise they require.”  

Samuel stays busy expanding his client base further throughout the state and country; but also finds time to spend with his family.  He enjoys traveling with his wife and daughters and opening up his daughters’ eyes to what a big world we live in with endless possibilities.

He also enjoys cooking, especially ‘low and slow’ barbecue, middle eastern food, and pasta.  “I also enjoy riding my bike to burn off all of those delicious calories,” Samuel adds.

Lakeside Executive Suites has been a great home for Samuel Rubert Law due to its proximity to his house, major roadways and reasonable pricing.  “I have stayed (and I love Lakeside) because of the people that work here (both staff and other tenants).”  Samuel continues, “I have had offices in other shared spaces, and this is by far the best.  The camaraderie, events, and value are as good as I have been around.  While I hope to grow my business, I hope I never outgrow Lakeside.”

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.

 

 

Top Tips for holding effective interviews
Posted On October 12, 2018 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

Interviews are important on many levels. No matter the reason and no matter which side of the desk you are sitting on, it’s crucial to keep in mind that an interview can make or break a relationship. It can begin one, or, it can end one before it even begins.

The success of the exchange lies as much with the interviewer as it does the interviewee, but let’s talk about you. You’ve got a full plate as it is, but you have several candidates to meet with. You don’t have the luxury of an HR department and you need the process to go as smoothly as possible so you can get the results you need and get back to what you do.

Here are our top 10 tips on how to get the most out of your interview:

Before the interview:

1.Know the job that you are offering

Familiarize yourself with every detail of the job and its requirements. That way, you will be in a better position to assess whether the candidate has the basic goods to do the job.

2.Get to know your candidate

Review your candidate’s CV and work history. Take a close look at everything he or she submitted during the application process – cover letter, references, and so on. Make careful note of any employment gaps, ambiguous job titles or personal information that may have a bearing on their future performance.

3.Create an interview agenda

There may be several areas you want to cover. Determine how much time you have for the interview and set time limits on certain aspects so you can get everything you need covered. Be sure you start on time as much as you can. This will demonstrate that you respect your interviewee’s time as well as your own.

4.Prepare interview questions in advance

As you go through the candidate’s CV and portfolio, make note of any specific questions you want to ask about their work. Think along the lines of what you need and prepare questions that help you determine whether or not they will meet those expectations.

On the day of the meeting:

5.Meet in a professional environment

First impressions are everything! Even if you are an entrepreneur or startup who doesn’t have a physical office space, it’s important to project a professional appearance. On-demand meeting rooms are an affordable way to host interviews – and it’s a great way to lay the groundwork for a working relationship.

6.Give your interviewee 100 percent of your attention

Make sure you have a quiet environment for the interview. Choose a location that is comfortable and has a minimum of distractions. Mute your phone, send calls to voicemail, ask to not be disturbed.

7.Ask behavioral questions

Ask for specific examples of how the candidate handled certain stressful situations and ask for both good and not-so-good scenarios. Asking behavioral questions will give you a good idea of how they will handle similar situations for you.

And finally, never forget the golden rule of interviewing: Listen first. Because you’ll never learn anything if you are the one doing all the talking.

Lakeside Executive Suites is a premier supplier of flexible office space and services as well as meeting rooms on-demand. Book your meeting room today or call to learn more.
