Four Simple Tips for Creating a Smart Home Office

home-office-webThe home office is quickly becoming the new frontier of the business world. A designated office space is a crucial part of maintaining productivity, professionalism, and organization. A professional space can help you stay in a professional frame of mind. Are you looking for ways to optimize the space you work in? We’ve compiled a list of four tips for creating a space for success.

Proper Lighting 

Bright ideas rarely happen under dim lighting. The lighting inside your home office can actually affect your productivity and health. Picking a room with a window is a great way to get exposure to natural light while you spend hours at your desk. The natural vitamin D from sunlight will benefit your health and sleep cycle. Avoid eye strain and perpetual sleepiness if you keep your office too dark. An office without a window will need some overhead lighting, so be sure to place accent lamps in various spots around your desk to provide proper lighting for typing and reading documents.

Add Some Professional Reminders

Working from home sometimes means working in your pajamas. It can be difficult to remember that you’re a professional when you’re responding to emails inside a warm pair of bunny slippers. It’s important to fill your office with little reminders of your status as a working professional. Hang reminders of your accomplishments and credentials on your walls. You can frame any diplomas, certificates of achievement, or professional portraits you own. Being surrounded by professional reminders could provide the inspiration you need to maintain a professional attitude during virtual interactions with clients.

Bring in a Coffee Pot

Everybody who works from home understands how important it is to keep work obligations and domestic life separate. Traditional offices always have a coffee pot. Try adding your own personal coffee pot to your home office to avoid the temptation to wander into the kitchen every time you need a java fix. A trip to the kitchen could result in distractions, unhealthy snacks, and lost time. People who don't drink coffee can substitute an electric tea kettle or bottled water.

Invest in a Good Chair

A bad back is always bad for business. You’re probably going to spend a lot of time in the chair in front of your desk. Every home office needs to have an ergonomic chair. The chair you pick could be the most important investment you make for your home office. Be sure to look for a chair with the right balance of support and resistance. Chairs with mesh backs are a popular choice in the corporate world, today. Many office supply stores also offer kneeling stools. A kneeling stool provides the opportunity to change your posture every few hours.

Your home is where you live. Your home office is where you make a living doing what you love. Davinci virtual office solutions want to help you stay caffeinated, motivated, and inspired to always do your best work in your home office. These tips may help you build a global empire without ever changing out of your pajamas.

Making Business Blossom in the Land of the Rising Sun

rising-sun-webAs a business owner, you’ve learned to take advice from the most brilliant minds out there, including Steve Jobs. When it came to business savvy, Jobs—like yourself--knew a thing or two about staying ahead of the curve and doing business with only the best. This includes international opportunities, such as Japan. Jobs once said of Japan, "I think what they do is reinvent things.... In some cases, they understand it better than the original inventor." His observation is right on the money. In a culture focused on streamlining and graceful etiquette, the streets are packed with innovative technology from advertisements to transportation.

Any tech company worth its salt wants a foothold in Japan. It is home to international technology behemoths, manufacturing moguls and biotech geniuses. When you are ready to take your business to Japan's cutting edge economic stage, having an address in Tokyo will give you the presence you need to succeed.

Tokyo real estate is a rare and expensive commodity, and competition for space in premium districts is even more fierce. Business transactions in Japan are very much founded on appearances. The right location can earn you instant respect among potential clients, but once you factor in overhead and staffing, opening a Japanese office can be cost-prohibitive for most businesses. Davinci virtual office solutions open the possibility back up.

Davinci gives you a mailing address in the heart of Tokyo's business districts, making an excellent impression on local and international clients alike. Without paying for a physical location, you enjoy a premier address, lobby directory listings, and a lobby greeter to polish your presence. Clients send mail to your address in Japan, and we forward it to you. We can also help out with live receptionists and meeting rooms when you come to conduct business.

In Japan, the appearance of a respectable business is crucial for financial success. Davinci can bring your business into the thriving heart of technological innovation without gutting your business savings. Conduct yourself with an innovator’s grace and savvy in this land of the Rising Sun.
