So you are running a virtual business. You've got a virtual office set up and virtual employees – but real communications challenges with mobile workers running from one part of the city to another.

Here's some good news: Communication doesn't have to be a challenge, thanks to modern virtual office technologies. All it takes is a little coordination and you can keep the communication flowing across your virtual staff.

One way to promote communication, teamwork and camaraderie among employees is to organize periodic "state of the company" business meetings.

Here's how it works: Each employee goes to the conference room of your virtual office provider. If you have a state-of-the-art virtual office provider, those conference rooms will be equipped with audio and or video conference capabilities.

In this "state of the company" meeting, all virtual employees have an opportunity to share knowledge, ideas and plans for growing the company, solving challenges and otherwise streamlining business. When employees get back to their regular workplace, each one can write up report that details an action plan pertaining to his or her area – and then get ready to run.

The keys to running a successful virtual business operation are flexibility, discipline – and regular communications. With technology abounding and with access to brick-and-mortar conference rooms, your virtual business can have the best of all officing worlds.
