Top Ways to Grow Your Network at Endeavor

Receptionist Office

By now you know that conducting your business in a coworking office like Endeavor Innovative Workspaces has many clear benefits. However, one valuable resource of a coworking office is often overlooked. The networking potential in a coworking space is tremendous, and these are five ways to effectively grow your network in a coworking office.

Initiate Authentic Conversations

The coworking space is often full of non-traditional, innovative, passionate people. Make the most of these creative minds by initiating authentic conversations with them. Let your conversations go beyond business; be genuine in your interactions and really get to know the people in your coworking office. By getting to know the people in the office beyond their job title, you can make a lasting impression that will cross over into the professional world.

Swap Services and Share Knowledge

Odds are, not everyone in your coworking office has the same skill set. Take advantage of this diversity and offer to share your expertise with people in other fields of your coworking office. By establishing openness to sharing your knowledge, others within your coworking space are likely to do the same. Another approach to the idea of sharing knowledge extends to swapping services. If you work in graphic design and someone in your coworking office is in marketing, you can set up a swap of services to not only support your local business, but also get your work and name out there.

Office-Sponsored Networking Events

Often overlooked, ask your office space if they host any kind of office-wide networking events. Many modern coworking office spaces will host networking events such as monthly catered lunches, office-wide opportunities for collaboration, or think tank sessions with local leaders. Inquire about these opportunities when choosing a coworking office and, if available, take advantage of these opportunities whenever they arise.

Ask and Offer Help

One of the amazing perks of a coworking office is the mixture of people and businesses within the space. Someone with a completely different skill set from you can be next door to your office, and it would be in your best interest to get to know them. Offer any help, business related or not, and they will likely reciprocate.  A first impression when new business come to the space can last for the remainder of your professional relationship, and a positive one can result in a valuable new contact in your networking circle.

By utilizing any of these tips, you are sure to add valuable people and businesses your network within Endeavor Workspaces, as well as get your name out there in a simple and effective way. A coworking office may be in your future.

Best Places to Get Work Done for Every Budget

Office Meeting

Working from home sounds peaceful and even ideal, but how much does working from home cost business-savvy professionals? For starters, the average at-home entrepreneur may find themself consuming more convenience food, such as take-out, delivery, pre-packaged and frozen food options; overall, making purchases from the most convenient places, rather than the cheapest. While these costs may seem small and inconsequential, they can take a toll on the wallet. Then there is the possibility of being distracted by external stimuli like children and pets, which may cause the quality of your work to suffer.

Endeavor is a solution for such entrepreneurs. The 15,000 square-foot space includes high-speed fiber optic Internet, 26 private office spaces (single, double and adjoining), two large conference rooms, a lobby with reception and guest check-in, a kitchen, lounge and game room. The lobby with reception and guest check-in makes a valuable first impression, a moment that can make or break your first business meeting. So why not set yourself up for success? Better yet, follow-up your greeting with a spacious, roomy office of your own to seal the deal.  Having Endeavor’s many resources at your fingertips can also provide you the opportunity to grow your business and lead to valuable networking connections.

Where Should I Meet a Client if I Don’t Have an Office?

Modern Office

You’re living the dream. You have a successful business, and love the fact that you can run it from home, as that gives you the flexibility of coming and going as you please. But what happens when the persistent clients come knocking at your door, and you’re in the middle of baking cookies with the kiddos? Not so good for professionalism is it? While working remotely has its perks, meeting with clients at home is NOT one of them. So, where SHOULD you meet?

While coffee shops are popular locations for business meetings, the hustle and bustle tends to be very distracting, and can affect your meeting, and the decisions both you and your client make immensely. Not to mention, if your business forte requires you to present documents to clients in a manner requires a lot of table space, those little round tables wont do your business any justice – no matter how experienced you are.

Restaurants not only require you to potentially invite your client to lunch or dinner, but you also run into the same old tiny table problem. Not to mention that your sticky food fingers might ruin any important documents you might need to show your client.

The fresh air is always nice when you work inside all day, but you might want to keep the park as a weekend activity location. The lack of Wi-Fi tends to be a big deal when you need to show your client something online, and not to mention the Ft. Myers, Florida sun is unbearable and will have you AND your client sweating like a dog 12 minutes into your meeting.

So, now that we’ve covered the taboo meeting locations, let’s go back to our original question… where SHOULD you meet?

Co-working office spaces are the ideal location to create a powerful impression with your clients. Rentable executive suites are available to rent at Endeavor Innovative Workspaces, and not only do you have the space to meet, but you also have the space to work. Endeavor provides you with all the necessary tools for running a successful remote business, and it’s easy as pie.

Endeavor gives you the option to rent offices for a special occasion meeting, or opting for a monthly membership that provides you with 24/7 access to the space – giving you the sense of an office on its own, AND it’ll make your wallet feel a lot heavier than the rent overhead you would be paying for an entire office location. Enjoy amenities including a copy room, kitchen, lounge room, showers, and game room, all fully equipped with high speed fiber optic Wi-Fi and secure access to the facilities.

Kick start (or improve) your business by opting for the professionalism it deserves. Spruce up your meetings, and get work done efficiently and who knows, the biggest perk of having a remote location is the fact that getting you out of the house gives you the potential to meet prospective clients! How’s that for a cherry on top?

 

What Do The Best Co-Working Spaces Offer?

Startups Collaboration

It is estimated that 40 percent of the workforce will be made up of freelancers, solo-entrepreneurs and independent contractors by the year 2020. That is where co-working spaces come into play. They offer the most bang for your buck, especially for start-ups and freelancers. But what do the very best co-working spaces offer?

 

One major problem the modern freelancer faces is social isolation. Sitting in front of a computer screen all day can be exhausting, even if you’ve only physically moved away from your desk to grab a snack in the kitchen. By definition, co-working spaces remove the element of isolation with shared offices, work tables and coffee lounges. However, the best co-working spaces offer more than a lounge. Look out for game rooms, gyms, on-site bicycles and unique locations to make your work experience not only more productive, but more engaging as well. If done right, a co-working space can be collaborative, not just convenient.

 

Another common problem solo workers face is inflated rent rates for traditional offices. Co-working spaces can eliminate the possibility of getting locked into a lease, but the best spaces offer multiple pay plans with the opportunity to add services and perks, à la carte. For example, Endeavor Innovative Workspaces offers its members daily and monthly passes with the capability to add extra services, such as call answering and routing, or printing and lamination. If you want a private office, we’ve got it. If you want a dedicated desk, we’ve got that too. Don’t settle for a co-working space that puts you in a box and limits your options.

 

The beauty of a “pay as you go” model is that you don’t have to pay all year for an amenity you will only use twice. Picture this: a small start-up company signs a year-long lease for a space that doesn’t have a conference room. This is not a problem for months, until one day it is. The right co-working space will make these perks available but not mandatory. At Endeavor Innovative Workspaces, you don’t have to bundle. Our members can pay monthly for an Associate Membership, and upgrade to a Prime Membership for a month if they need to use a conference room.

 

Another common problem the solo-entrepreneur on-the-move faces is a lack of accessibility. The nicest co-working spaces may only offer traditional hours. However, the most sought-after spaces have options or plans available that allow 24/7 access. This flexibility means you work when it is most convenient for you, not most convenient for your landlord. If you are a morning person, you can arrive at 6 a.m., and if you are a night owl, you can leave at 8 p.m. It also means you have office resources at your fingertips at all times, from the printers to the conference rooms. Endeavor Innovative Workspaces offers 24/7 access to members who pay for private offices.

 

When shopping around for the best co-working space for you, make sure you do your research. We suggest making a wish list detailing everything, from price-point to perks. Chances are you will find something that meets your needs and provides those little extras that will be the icing on top of the cake.
