    The Move from Home Office to Virtual Office

    For some freelancers and independent professionals, the home office works well, at least for a time. Others soon outgrow the home setup, especially those who have ambitions to expand their business. Either that or the home office stops working for different reasons.

    The new way of conducting business, particularly for more mobile operations, is to use virtual office solutions. Our New Jersey coworking center in Hackensack is a perfect example. We'll look more into Office Evolution in Bergen County, NJ shortly.

    Time management for the modern-day solopreneur

    More and more people are choosing to be their own boss rather than work the 9-5 grind. And why not? The flexible working hours, the opportunity to pursue your passions and the control you can have over your work day is too good to turn down. Our research found 85 per cent of people working for themselves were happy with their current work situation and 74 per cent planned to stick to self-employment for at least the next ten years.

    10 Motivations to Drive You from the Home Office to a Coworking Center

    Let's be honest here, the home office is convenient, it's comfortable, and it saves on the daily commute. But what if your business is more than a solo web designer or freelance writer? It never takes too long before entrepreneurs outgrow the spare bedroom. Don't worry. This doesn't mean you'll have to throttle your finances and invest in a costly traditional office lease.

    Office Evolution is in Bergen County, New Jersey, and growing throughout the US. We’re a professional shared office co-working center with many workspace options.

    Why Every Solopreneur Needs a Business Plan

    Business plans get a bad rap for being stodgy, outdated, lengthy documents that no one reads. Business plans don't have to be jargon-filled, endless tomes, though. They're meant to be useful guides toward success. And that's why every business owner, even the smallest of eCommerce solopreneurs, should consider writing one.

    Here are three reasons why:

    Scheduling Meetings Effectively When You’re Self-Employed

    It’s important for all professionals to use their time efficiently. But it’s particularly essential for the self-employed, who have far more discretion about how to structure their days.

    Without corporate mandates such as weekly team meetings or biweekly project check-ins, entrepreneurs have the ability to wipe out bureaucratic red tape and reach new heights of productivity. But far too often they end up at the other extreme, frittering away their days because they’re unsure of how to leverage their autonomy.

    Not Ready for Commercial Office Space? Shared Workspace Might Be for You

    Your small business is up and running. But are you wearing out your welcome at the local coffee shop? Or is your family finding more and more of your business supplies overflowing from your work area?

    It may be time for a business workspace.

    While working remotely or from a home office can save you a lot of money as you grow your business, there may come a time when you grow out of your initial setup.

    It can be a triumphant moment for you and your business, but it can also be a scary one. Office space can be expensive.

    Working from Home

    Maybe you’re just sick of the commute. Sharing the freeway with crazy people is getting old. I don’t blame you. Idiot sightings are up and it’s hard to get through an intersection in one try with everyone feeding their phone addiction.

    Maybe you’re dreaming of starting something special. A service that comes from the heart, dished up for people that you care about. The world has waited too long for this, you say. It’s time. You’re going to launch it and the fuzzy slippers routine is the way to go.

    Places to Meet When You Work From Home

    Picture this: you're a solo professional or small business in or around Somerset County, trying to make your mark in the world. You've just received some great news that a prospect wants to meet with you and discuss some potential work. Okay, so far so good. The only problem now is that you work from home. Even if you have a nice place, it's still home and so may not do much to make a good first impression.
