Hurting Your Business

A recent article, Step Away From Your Business: Why Your Workaholism Is Killing Your Company by  Susan Guillory says that you may think that the more you work, the more successful  your business can be, but actually it’s not true.  The more you work, the less you accomplish.  Seems a paradox,….

A recent article, Step Away From Your Business: Why Your Workaholism Is Killing Your Company by  Susan Guillory says that you may think that the more you work, the more successful  your business can be, but actually it’s not true.  The more you work, the less you accomplish.  Seems a paradox, but that’s true.

Here’s why you shouldn’t be a workaholic if you really want to succeed in business.

1. Keeping yourself inundated hinders you from realizing your goal.

If you fill your time with every small administrative task that you can think of, you’re really just consuming your time and energy without achieving your main goal. You can avail of virtual office solutions to take care of this stuff so you can focus on the core of your business, planning the long-term potential for your business and determining how to get there.  

2. You are prone to burnout.

The long hours you consume on your business, the harder it is to recuperate. It’s like work out—experts advise you to give yourself a recovery day. You don’t need to take off every other day, but you should take a break from your business in executive office space regularly so that your brain has time to recover. Thinking about work all the time is exhausting! You have to spend time on something personal other than your business.

3. Only your ego cares that you work for extended hours.

You’re in charge now, and there’s no pay increase waiting for you for working endless, taxing weeks. You don’t have a boss to impress that you work on the weekends. Definitely, you’ll sometimes need to work longer hours, particularly while you’re first launching your business. Just don’t allow it to become a habit; otherwise you’ll get depleted.

Conclusion

Being a workaholic will hurt your business, but rather a great workforce and a well designed workspace are essential elements to your success.

A recent article, 3 Things To Do When You Feel Like Quitting by Sasha Kill says that trying to run, manage and grow a successful business is overwhelming. The pressure and stress can either make or break you. But being your own boss and  generating more money while doing something that you love is awesome.

So when you feel like giving up, here are three things to keep you going in your business in a commercial office space.

  1. Realign with your purpose.

When you feel exhausted in your business, it’s because you’re sidetracked. Your purpose is the very essence and the reason why you do what you do. So keeping your purpose at the heart of your business will serve as a steadfast inspiration that will guide you through difficult times including the uncertainty, fear and dismay that can sneak in as you grow.

  1. Remember that it’s not easy, but Worth It

Many entrepreneurs in diverse places in executive suites fail to anticipate that there are unavoidable struggles that lie ahead. You have to continue with the journey and accept the challenges (setbacks and obstacles) ahead as part of the process. With this understanding the road ahead shape and develop you rather than tear you down.

  1. Let yourself throw in the towel for a day.  

Lastly, when things look too consuming, take a break.  Get out of your office in shared office space Lake Mary, take a walk, get some coffee, meet some friends, write a journal or find a quiet place or book a meeting room to reflect and meditate.   By taking a break, you only not allow your body and mind to refresh and restore, but you’re able to view your business from a new vantage point, often shedding light on priorities and goals.

Conclusion

Running a business is not easy, but these three simple tips will help you survive and thrive.

A recent article, 3 Questions Every Leader Should Ask To Succeed by Paul Keijzer says that leaders at any rank in an organization, whether at the very top or somewhere in the middle are always subjected to severe scrutiny. Thus, to stay on course and gratify the expectations that come with the job, leaders should appraise their performance and ability to lead.

Here are three questions leaders should ask themselves if they really want to succeed.

1. Am I being too emotional?

When emotions take over your judgment or decision, your ability to think objectively and logically get impaired. That’s when you make blunders such as retaining an incompetent and lethargic employee, or arguing with an irritating client. Essentially, you’ll be taking action and judgment that won’t entirely be in the best interest of the company.

2. Am I favoring employees?

This “habit” greatly affects employee morale and confidence. The “favorites” often get so much spotlight that others feel their efforts to go the extra mile would go overlooked and unrecognized.  And that’s when you as a leader in a team office space have failed to use and develop every talent’s true potential.

3. Am I sharing my vision with my team?

If you haven’t shared and discussed your vision with your team then your efforts to attain and accomplish them will backfire. It’s because great and successful leaders depend largely on strong, capable and empowered teams. You need to communicate and discuss your vision with them, you can rent a meeting space to brainstorm with your team, get their ideas and feedback to help you execute your plan towards achieving your company goal or vision.  

Conclusion

These three questions may seem simple at first, but their meaning to your success is extremely tremendous. Further, is your workplace an awesome place for your team productivity and efficiency? YourOffice has come alongside hundreds of business looking for everything from staffed flexible offices to agile office space. We know your business is unique, and your office space shouldn’t be any different. Let us match the perfect space or service to fit your business needs.

  1. Use colors and indoor plants

A recent article, 10 Year-End Tax Planning Actions by Barbara Weltman says that it’s almost closing time for the calendar year 2016 and its the perfect time for planning to reduce your taxes due for 2016.

Here are some tips for year-end tax planning for your business.

Meet with your tax professional

Schedule a meeting in meeting space Orlando with your tax professional to review your business cash position and expenditures through the year so you can decide what steps to make before the year ends.  For instance, your CPA can advise you to buy some supplies needed for next year to maximize your deductions for this year.   

Award year-end bonuses

Consider to share your good year with your team in executive suites Orlando to convey your gratitude for their loyalty. Factor in the cost of payroll taxes on the bonuses in determining how much to give.

Have a retirement plan

You can sign the proposal for a profit-sharing plan or other qualified retirement plan by the end of the year if you don’t yet have one, so you can make deductible contributions from your tax returns for 2016. Find rules about retirement plans from the IRS.

Make donations to charitable institutions

The amount of deductions varies with what is being donated (e.g., cash, inventory, appreciated property). For instance, C corporations’ deductions are up to 10% of taxable income.

Purchase equipment and machinery

If you need to purchase new machinery, furniture and equipment (e.g. computer, tables and chairs) to replace the old ones, then you’ll probably be able to write off the cost  even if you finance the purchase in whole or in part. Find rules about deductible equipment purchases from the IRS.
