Build a Career With Virtual Office Solutions

DVO_week26_2According to some workplace studies, around seventy percent of workers in America are unfulfilled in their jobs. That's even higher than I thought it would be. I was thinking career dissatisfaction would be more around 50 percent - much like marriage dissolution levels.

When you think about it, careers are a lot like marriage. Some jobs even come with contracts. The main difference is that it is usually easier to get out of an employment contract than a marriage. Divorce is also more expensive and traumatic. Unless you're a celebrity and you signed an agreement to perform and then renege!

Going solo is often the best way for a lot of people in life and in work. There's really nothing like being your own boss - and nothing more challenging. However, if you take the time to find satisfying work above all else, chances are it won't be that hard to survive as long as you keep expenses under control.

Finances are a top concern for entrepreneurs. Many people don't even take a salary for the first few years, but the fact remains, you need to create some kind of standing to grow the business. This is usually not going to be done without a professional appearance that is not developed by taking all meetings at the corner café, even if you buy lunch for your prospective clients. But who can afford an office when they are starting out?

Enter virtual offices! You get all the benefits but without all the cost. For just a few bucks a month, you can get a professional address where clients can be greeted, phones will be answered, and mail accepted. You can even rent an office for a day or a few hours to work and take meetings.

Truth is, research has shown that like love, money doesn't buy career or happiness. Looks like the best thing to do is examine what you really want to do and do it. For many, that means starting a business. Virtual office solutions make it more possible than ever to do just that.

How to Save Money with a Davinci Live Receptionist

When it comes to business, it's not all about the Benjamins. It's about the Washingtons, the Lincolns, and the Jacksons, too. Companies are always looking for new ways to save money, and a remote live receptionist is not only a money-saver, but a helpful business strategy as well.

A Davinci Live Receptionist is an off-site secretary who forwards phone calls, answers customer questions, takes messages, and responds to emails.

No Salary Costs

A live receptionist is a service provided by Davinci for a low monthly fee. Companies can decide on a suitable service package, which relates to the number of employees in their business. In some cases, the monthly price for a Davinci Live Receptionist is comparable to the cost for one to two days of work from an in-house receptionist.

Businesses don't pay for the live secretary's wages, which means they also don't have to pay for additional healthcare costs, dental costs, retirement pensions, and other expenses often associated with a traditional employee.

No Utility Costs

An in-house receptionist requires a desk, chair, computer, and telephone, and contributes to the monthly utility bill of lights, air conditioning, heating, and water. All of these expenses are eliminated when businesses chose a Davinci Live Receptionist. This can mean hundreds of dollars saved each month in utilities alone.

No Costly Impersonal Greetings

Most people prefer to talk to a live person than to go through the steps with a machine to receive quick company information or to reach the right person at a company. A live person is more personable and more open to customer questions. This personal approach means happier callers, which can turn into easier sales. It's costly to lose a potential customer to an impersonal message, which is why a live voice is a much better option for savings and profit growth.

Money is as money does, and the more money a company has, the more possibilities they have to grow. A live receptionist saves companies money while helping them stay ahead of the competition.

Irvine Virtual Office Solutions Lower Stress

DVO_week26_1Most everyone today in the work day world faces stress on one level or another, whether it is organizing, marketing, or servicing clients. While deadlines, logistics, and all the things running a business entails is an expected part of the process, keeping a business going really doesn’t have to be as stressful as it often is. Here’s an idea. Rather than focus upon getting more done, how about having less to do? Sounds good to me! I’ve spent a lot of time in my life trying to prioritize and cram as much into my day as possible. Frankly, that just doesn’t work. All that seems to happen when I work like a maniac is that there is more stuff to do! Each time I think I am achieving more and “getting more done,” all I am really doing is clearing the way for more tasks to magically appear out of seemingly nowhere.

 

It can become very frustrating. There’s nothing more defeating than thinking that there are never enough hours in the day or that you will never achieve business goals. Yet, this is what new businesses are faced with every day. The whole process can be very overwhelming. However, when business owners learn to delegate they will find that their work lives go a whole lot smoother.

 

A lot of people probably think, “Yeah. Delegating is fine. But I don’t even pay myself a decent salary, so how will I afford staff to delegate to?" Well, there are many ways to delegate. For instance, with Davinci Virtual Office Solutions you can get a prime business address in Irvine for around $79 a month. They'll greet clients, accept mail, and answer phones. You can also opt for mail forwarding and other business services.

 

Using virtual office solutions make it possible to change the goal from getting more done to having less to do. When business owners and entrepreneurs outsource admin tasks using virtual office solutions - they can locate, serve, and potentially grow their client base. Isn’t that why a business owner starts a company in the first place?
