Consulting is a thriving career. Cutting across a range of sectors and businesses, professionals are opting for independent consulting as a preferred choice of career and reaching out to companies who seek their expertise. While having an expert on board without hiring full-time works well for companies, for consultants, it’s the idea of working for different organizations and being paid for doing it.
Amidst all the closed-door meetings and ‘consulting’, managing things could become challenging. Though it’s a “one man army” brigade, consultants would still be required to have their business registered, run and manage the end-to-end of it. From answering calls, sending/receiving emails and documentation to picking up business-related couriers, not always can it be managed with ease. What is the way forward?
Also, when traditional office space in a prime location demanding a premium, minus the benefits and facilities a consultant could use to streamline his/her business, how can one setup office space and enjoy all benefits too, without paying the moon?
The Answer: A Fully Managed Virtual Office
The concept of a virtual office setup does seem like it was made for these independent consultants and entrepreneurs. Indeed it is. From providing a horde of value-added services to offering customizable solutions, a virtual office space is an apt solution. The key is, for any consultant, to focus on core business and leave the rest to a virtual office assistant.
We’ve compiled a few beneficial factors of a virtual office space, which will help independent consultants who are looking to set up their office space.
Business Address: A great location is everything. It saves time and money and a lot of it. Imagine: business address at a prime hub, located in one of city’s plush areas and comes in quite easy on the budget. Might well pass off as a fairy if not for a virtual office address.
