I attended a conference this morning and one of the topics focused on was TIME. As we all know, there are only 24 hours in a day and most of us haven’t mastered the true art of time management.
Most professionals and business owners are juggling careers, employees, office responsibilities, families, relationships, business operations, and business growth. Once time is spent, there isn’t any way to take it back. It’s Gone.
At Businessuites, we help to free-up your most valuable asset – YOUR TIME. By managing the day to day operations of the office and creating an environment that fosters success, we allow clients to spend more time on other, more important, areas of their lives and businesses.

BusinesSuites serves as the business home for thousands of professionals, entrepreneurs and employees of large companies through a growing network of locations across the US. We offer premium executive office suites, virtual office services and meeting rooms to companies of all sizes.
Take back some time at BusinesSuites.
Lately I’ve felt a lot like the Goldilocks of office space. My search for temporary office space has led me to spaces that were too small, too large and to a few that were just right.
A few months ago a colleague and I hosted a small event in a large venue. The space had an artistic, intimate aura that filled the space where the intended audience would have been. This year my colleague and I are planning to use the same large space and hoping to fill it with a larger audience.
The main culprit of the last event was timing: the event was scheduled for the same week students were scheduled to leave campus. This year we won’t make that same mistake. But one thing from the last event that I will definitely be repeating is sharing space. After setting up our event my colleague and I invited another group to set up in our reception area. The other event was the launch of a magazine. The launch attracted a similar audience and our event invited them to stay. Both events benefited from the space: the feel, location and size allowed both events to feel successful even if we didn’t use the numbers as a measure of success.
Though it is months away, we are already looking for other organizations and events to share space with for this year’s event. We have arranged a musician to perform in the opening and in between readers and will add a question and answer portion to invite the audience to participate. We are actively looking for partnerships to make use of a large welcoming space.
Are you getting the most out of your space?
Sharing space by creating partnerships with other groups, organizations and businesses may help you use “extra” space effectively.
The team at BusinesSuites Hill Country Galleria planned a special Client Appreciation Week.
Monday – You Mean the World to Us Kick-off
The week’s theme, “You Mean the World to Us!”, kicked off on Monday with cake, punch, prizes and drawings! Clients took home inflatable globe beach balls and globe key chains as fun mementos. Below is a picture of the Hill Country Galleria team showing off the week’s activity poster. Clients also marked on U.S. and world maps showing where they were from, which turned out to be great fun as clients were able to meet other clients from their same home towns!
Tuesday – Italian
The team continued the world theme on Tuesday, highlighting Italy by serving pizza and gelato to the center’s clients.
Wednesday – Japanese
Wednesday was the day we say “Anata no aru hoto no tame arigato!” to our clients (Thank you for being you!), with various kinds of sushi.
Thursday – Mexican
Now around the world to Mexico, where the team treated clients to a festive and delicious taco bar! The piñata got to go home with a lucky winner!
Friday – Texas, USA!
Time to wind it up with a good ole’ Texan Barbeque! The team at BusinesSuites ends the “You Mean the World to Us!” Client Appreciation Week today, but will continue BusinesSuites’ efforts of “Providing the Freedom to Succeed” for each client!
A few months ago, my local bookstore moved to a new location. It used to be situated near the library, but now is across town near where I live.
The library seems like an ideal location for a bookstore; with book lovers already in the vicinity and likely to stop in. However, it turns out the competition was too much. The bookstore changed locations in hopes of boosting business and creating their own clientele.
I visit the library regularly and, honestly, rarely went in the bookstore. Now that the bookstore is closer to my home, I’ve become a more frequent shopper. Their strategy has worked on me.
The bookstore downsized in the move and no longer has room for readings, author signings or book clubs. It seems like location may have improved but their business may be affected in other ways. Without enough space for patrons to interact with their products, they may find other stores to fill that need. The bookstore used to provide an experience, not just books.
If your space feels too small to host events that get clients in the door, it may be time to consider hosting events in other spaces. Your competition isn’t going to disappear just because you’ve moved farther away from them. Don’t let space stand in between prospective clients and your business.
Great service helps your business because it delights customers, but also because not-so-great service drives your customers away. When someone buys from you, they’re essentially giving your company a vote of confidence. That confidence builds on itself or it can be easily eroded.
BusinesSuites strives for exceptional service every day. We do that as representatives of our own company, but also because we’re often the face of our clients’ businesses.
The teams at our centers are ready to serve and accommodate you so you can focus on great service for your clients. If you need a place to meet for the day, you can use one of our premium office spaces. While you’re there, our team will become your support staff. Whether it’s helping you set-up projection, making copies, or even notarizing a document, our staff will be there to help you get the job done.
