Scottsdale office lease

So you spent the summer living it up and relaxing. You swam, camped, and traveled. You’ve eaten more frozen yogurt than you care to admit.

Blurred Lines approach to balancing work and personal life

Almost exactly one year ago, Harvard Business Review published an article written in support of a more “blurred lines” approach to balancing work and personal life. The theory is that if you try to keep those boundary lines rigid, you feel a performance-compromising amount of stress when you’re at work, and a thought about home or the weekend pops into your brain. Ditto for when you’re on a family picnic and you remember a work email that you need to send. So much stress, in fact, that the thought can deplete your energy and focus from the thing you’re trying to concentrate on. The article reports that study participants who allowed their personal life to seep into their work day, or who allowed themselves a few moments of work during times with friends or family, were less stressed and performed better overall. With small business owners who are working to

To App or Not to App?

Scottsdale Small Business Office for Rent

So you’ve got your business license and business plan. You even have Scottsdale office space that you secured through Advantage Office Suites to make your business plan happen. So now what? What is the best way to attract customers? Gone are the days where businesses can grow through word of mouth alone or even through a catchy website or ad.

Up until even a few years ago, many small businesses believed that getting an app was an excessive luxury; too expensive to hire an app developer, and too complicated to tackle independently. Now, app-development programs allow business owners to take on the app-building task in a much more affordable and feasible way. Still not sure? Consider the fact that about 75% of Americans check their smartphones at least once per hour,
