The many benefits of offsite meetings
Posted On August 16, 2018 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

Meetings are an essential component of any business. Meetings connect your departments, provide a forum for ideas and innovation, strengthen your company culture and your employees to stay in touch with your company’s mission and vision. That said, there are many benefits to conducting your meetings off-site.

Let’s look at some of the ways that offsite meetings can help:

1.    Offsite meetings minimize distractions

When your staff is away from their normal working environment, they will be less tempted to wander off or worry about calls they are missing, and so on. A change of scenery reduces stress and often provides a boost in productivity that can be energizing and highly stimulating.

2.    Offsite meetings feel special

Your employees likely don’t get the opportunity to spend time working outside of the office. Offsite meetings encourage them to express themselves more freely and will likely lead to better retention of the information you cover during this time.

3.    Offsite meetings are great for team building

Being outside of the office gives your employees a chance to get to know each other better. They will be better able to understand how their unique skillsets complement those of their colleagues and the process will serve to strengthen your company culture in the process.

4.    Offsite meetings give you access to technology you may not otherwise have

If your office operates on a lean budget, you may not have access to all the bells and whistles of a high-tech environment. Choosing an offsite meeting space will provide you with the latest audiovisual equipment as well as next-generation conferencing and webinar technology. Having these tools at hand will help you bring your work to life in ways you couldn’t normally do. Additionally, if you work with remote teams, video conferencing technology can be very helpful as it will allow your home office group to get to know colleagues who work from other locations and collaborate with them in real-time.

5.    Offsite meetings boost productivity

There is nothing like a fresh environment to stimulate the creative flow. Studies show that an offsite meeting space encourages out-of-the-box thinking, which could lead to major innovation as well as creative solutions to problems you deal with every day.

6.    Offsite meetings give you a chance to connect with your team

While you may work with your teams on a daily basis, how often do you get to sit down with them in an intimate setting and really see and hear what they have to offer? Having a direct connection with your employees will foster loyalty and openness and will provide a level of comfort between you and others that may not have existed otherwise.

Lakeside Executive Suites in Weston, Florida, is dedicated to empowering small businesses, startups, and entrepreneurs with flexible office solutions designed to help you grow. Our on-demand meeting rooms come fully equipped with today’s communications technology, helping you accomplish more without breaking the budget. Call today or schedule a tour to find out more.

Things to do to prepare for hurricane season in Florida
Posted On July 25, 2018 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

 

Hurricane season is upon us and with it comes thoughts of how bad it’s going to be and what we can do to plan. Though we’d all like to think that this year, maybe we’ll be spared, the reality is that doing nothing is probably the worst possible strategy.

To help you stay on top of it, we’ve put together some tips to help you prepare for hurricane season – because being ready is far better than bearing the brunt of it without a plan in place.

Plan your evacuation route in advance

When hurricanes hit, we often see an unusual and incredibly rapid surge in water level. This could mean flooding – even if you don’t live along the coastal areas. When the evacuation call comes down, you need to be ready to move fast. This means knowing where to go and what route you are going to take. Check the City of Weston website in advance of coming storms to get up-to-date information on local shelters and evacuation procedures.

Prepare an evacuation kit

Having a well-equipped kit on hand in case of emergency could mean the difference between your survival and having to depend on others for it. Pack your kit into a large, air and water-tight plastic bin and make sure it’s in a handy place so you can grab it and go when you need to.

Some of the items you should include in your kit:

– Clean socks and underwear
– A spare pair of shoes
– Battery-operated or hand-crank radio
– A variety of batteries
– Flashlight
– Flares
– Strike-anywhere matches
– Lighter
– Protein bars
– Non-perishable nutrient-dense foods
– A few gallons of water
– Toiletries: shampoo, soap, toothpaste, etc.
– Blanket/sleeping bag
– Local maps
– Whistle to signal for help
– First aid kit
– Copies of your property deeds, ownerships, and insurance certs “just in case”
– Pet food and supplies (if you have pets)

Make copies of your most important documents

After a major storm, there is no telling what resources you may have to access. Make sure you have copies of all your insurance policies, ownerships, and land titles just to be sure you can prove your claims if the need arises. Put these copies in a safe, water-tight zip-lock and keep them in your evacuation kit.

Back up all your computers and devices

If your computers are lost, you can still access all your data – if it’s backed up to the cloud. Backup your data to a cloud backup service to be sure your personal information will always be accessible when you need it most.

Seek out local pet shelters and animal services

If you have pets, be sure you know where you can take them in case of an impending storm event. Whatever you do – don’t leave them behind! Be prepared by making sure they are up-to-date with all their shots and have adequate carriers ready to take them to safety. Many shelters accept pets, but it’s always good to be on the safe side.

South Florida Entrepreneurship
Posted On May 3, 2013 Posted By: admin

The South Florida Entrepreneurship spirit is picking up and more resources are becoming available and facilitating the jump to full business ownership. Our local Sun Sentinel recently reported some truly inspiring case studies.

Sheree Blum was a special education teacher in Palm Beach County before founding her artistic glass business, Kicking Glass by Sheree. She was thrilled when the retail chain Anthropologie recently bought her vintage-looking lacey plates.

Fort Lauderdale construction worker Bernard Jackson worked briefly in auto detailing and found he enjoyed the work. With the help of the Urban League and Broward’s small business agency, he now has his own business, S Squad Auto Detail and Pressure Cleaner.

Both South Florida residents turned to the Small Business Development Centers in Palm Beach and Broward counties for help with their business plans to build a solid foundation for their companies.

“With the economy the way it is, everybody needs an alternate source of income,” said Sharon Geltner, a certified business analyst with the SBDC at Palm Beach State College in Boca Raton. Starting a business on the side of a full-time job is often recommended by business counselors.

For some, what they start as a part-time income producer becomes their full-time work. But they often need help with marketing, e-commerce and financial resources to succeed, Geltner said.

Creativity develops into business

After teaching for 20 years, Blum said she was ready to do something else.

“I worked with kids who were bright, they just had problems,” said Blum, 56, who had taught emotionally handicapped children in Pahokee, troubled teen-aged boys at Department of Juvenile Justice, and at Eagle Academy and Crossroads Academy in Belle Glade. She’s also the mother of four, now adults.

Blum’s business started with a curiosity about the art of Venetian glass. She attended a summer-long program in Winter Harbor, Maine, to learn a technique developed by Bill Sydenstricker of Cape Cod and Wayne Taylor from Lee Art Glass, which has locations in Maine and Mount Dora.

“I had a knack for it,” she said. “It just seemed to fit my personality well.”

She began making plates and showing them at art and craft shows in South Florida, in North Carolina and Georgia.

At the green market in Wellington, a buyer for Anthropologie came by and bought $100 worth of glass. She was excited about that. Then she got a phone call and an order for 2,400 plates from the store.

She makes as many as 40 plates a day in her kiln. “I watch them like babies,” Blum said, referring to the delicate process of changing temperatures in making glass.

Thanks to help from SBDC counselor Gelter, Blum said her business is set up properly. Gelter also connected her with an e-commerce expert. Now Blum is seeing a small profit.

Construction worker starts auto detail business

Former construction worker Bernard Jackson, 32, was going through a transition after divorce and looking for a new way to support himself. Through a program with the Urban League of Broward County, he saved $500 toward a business, took classes about starting a business, and created a business plan. The Urban League then referred him to Broward’s SBDC for additional help.

Armed with information, he realized: “I can own my own business if I just apply myself.”

From the SBDC, he learned “it’s important to get all the details of your business out on the table. The best way to do it is to do it right.” The small-business counselors helped him improve his plan for the auto detail business.

With the help of his brother, Cedric, he’s working primarily in Broward County, but plans to expand throughout South Florida.

“Once I do that one person’s car in a building, the next week we’ve got the whole building,” Jackson said.

The business was more expensive to set up than he expected. He raised about $15,000 from friends and family to invest in car-cleaning equipment.

Jackson said he is optimistic about his business’ success.

“There are a million cars coming off the assembly line. How can you not make money? Even if they transfer to spaceships, you’re still going to need detailing,” he jokes.

With business ownership comes many great responsibilities. Budget control is one of them and maintaining a low overhead is a priority. An office suite can provide several of the benefits of a large company feel at a fraction of the cost.

Fort Lauderdale Economy
Posted On February 5, 2013 Posted By: admin

Fort Lauderdale Economy

The Fort Lauderdale economy and Weston’s business environment have been more resilient to the past economic downturn compared to its regional neighbors such as Miami and its surrounding communities. Although Fort Lauderdale and Weston count Hospitality among their top industries, International commerce and technology are becoming the fastest growing ones. According to the City of Fort Lauderdale…

Fort Lauderdale has emerged as one of the fastest growing markets for global trade, with more than 40% of local businesses engaged in or supporting international commerce. The City remains at the forefront of South Florida’s emerging “Internet Coast,” a region that is home to more than 6,000 high technology firms.

A growing list of nationally-recognized corporations have established business operations in Fort Lauderdale with corporate or Latin American headquarters, including: AT&T, AutoNation, BankAtlantic, Citicorp, Citrix Systems, Galaxy Latin America, Hewlett-Packard, Microsoft Latin America, Motorola Latin America, Republic Industries, South African Airways, Spherion Corporation, SportsLine.com, and Voicestream Wireless.

Ranking Fort Lauderdale as one of the “100 Best Places to Live
and Launch” a business, CNN/Money reported:

“. . . Fort Lauderdale has felt less impact (from the real estate market) thanthe regions in and around Miami. The hottest businesses here are a reflectionof the subtropical climate and locale. Pleasure boat construction and services are a major sector, while the tourism industry, in general, stays strong, thanks in large part to the Canadians and Europeans attracted to the weak dollar. What’s more, a 600,000-square-foot convention center plays host to trade shows that bring a variety of industrial leaders from all over the country in contact with local businesses. Besides the usual pleasures to be expected from a city by the sea (sun, surf, sailing and swimming), Fort Lauderdale offers a lively downtown, with museums, galleries, live music, theater and fine restaurants. And for sports-crazed fans, there are no less than seven pro teams to root for in the surrounding area.”

With no lack of reasons to start up a business in the Weston/Fort Lauderdale area, an Executive Suite is the perfect office space setting for a new business. Call us for more details.

Renting Office Space in South Florida
Posted On September 27, 2012 Posted By: admin

Office Space

In today’s world of home businesses, contractors and sales people and entrepreneurs, renting office space in South Florida, or anywhere for that matter, is not as one dimensional as it used to be. 10-15 years ago, if you worked for an organization, then you were given an office with furniture, a phone, and anything else you needed in order to do your job successfully.

Even with these newly defined roles and home business offices, there are times when a professional setting is needed.
