Rockefeller Group Business Centers Staff Insights: 3 “Dont’s” of Running Your Virtual Office by David Jakubowski

What are some things to consider when you’re selecting a virtual office for the first time?

1. Don’t pick an address unless…

Don't assume you will never grow into leasing the space, because there is a big chance when your business grows, you eventually can end up in the physical office.  For that reason, we don’t recommend choosing an address unless you are willing to move into the space in the future. You should consider selecting an address that is impressive, but that also meet your business’s culture and personality as well.

2. Don't buy services unless…

You know you need them. To run a business efficiently, we recommend starting with the basic packages and later you can add-on as you need additional services. Ask your virtual office provider, they should be able to design a package that is specific to your business’s needs.

3. Don't sign a long-term commitment.  

One of the most given advice to many business owners is to stay flexible. You never know how the market will change, and depending on the way your market shifts, you may be forced to scale up or down, or you may need to relocate your business. To run your business lean and efficiently, flexibility will ultimately provide you with a great advantage.
