Transcript

  • 1. The Right Space at the Best Price without the Usual Hassle www.OfficeFinder.com  Operating a small business can be both exciting and lucrative. More and more people are leaving the traditional workplace to open their own ventures and becoming quite successful. Many startups begin with only the owner working in the business which makes leasing or renting office space the largest overhead expense. There are practical ways to cut this big overhead item by thinking creatively. There’s no reason that every business needs a walk-up storefront or High end office space in order to succeed.
  • 2. The Right Space at the Best Price without the Usual Hassle www.OfficeFinder.com  Share an Office: If you have friends or colleagues who are also in businesses Split the expenses equally. This reduces the costs for electricity, internet, janitorial, and other equipment leases. Instead of each office partner procuring a copier, fax, and other equipment that both parties use, only one item is needed, significantly cutting the cost.  Be sure there won’t be a conflict of interest or direct competition.

  • 5. The Right Space at the Best Price without the Usual Hassle www.OfficeFinder.com  Co-Working:  Much like a work lounge. Each of the co-working partners conducts their own business in their own workspace in the shared office and the co-workers may share support staff such as receptionists or clerical staff in order to keep overhead costs low while providing everyone effective support for their small businesses. This concept is growing into a great solution for hundreds of like-minded small business owners.
  • 6. The Right Space at the Best Price without the Usual Hassle www.OfficeFinder.com  Virtual Office: Today, you really don’t need a specific location for an office with walls. With mobile wireless internet services, hot spots available in most metro locations and even urban areas, multiple personal data devices, and smart phones that do almost everything a computer does, it is possible to work anywhere at anytime.  You can operate your business from your living room sofa, poolside, in your vehicle (please stop your vehicle in a safe location before texting or computing for safety), in a coffee shop, at McDonald’s, and right at your client’s desk.

The Right Space at the Best Price without the Usual Hassle www.OfficeFinder.com  Lease a Desk in a Business that Buys Your Services:  Often, a small business begins because on business requires the services that will be offered.  For example, an insurance company may regularly require the services of a licenses investigator.  If your small business is complimentary to a local business, check into leasing a desk in an unused area of the office.  In tough economic times, many offices are willing to lease a desk space to a small business that is not in conflict with their own business.
  • 9. The Right Space at the Best Price without the Usual Hassle www.OfficeFinder.com  Home Office:  The vast majority of small business startups begin in a home office. This allows the entrepreneur to begin conducting business without making a huge commitment to overhead expenses.  Also, many owners of small startups begin their venture while working a traditional career, making certain their business will succeed before giving up the regular paycheck.  Some of these small businesses never move out of the home office, even after hiring an employee or two.  Many virtual service businesses never leave the home office.
