No matter how many computers you have at your business, you’ll need a few other things — things like sticky tape, paperclips, pens, and reams of paper.
Well, on to more substantial business things. How about office space? A conference room? A receptionist? Somebody to take out the trash? Oh, yes. That’s what you do when you close up your place for the night, on your way out. After you turn off the lights.
Some of these ancillary business activities can take too much time away from the main thrust of the business. So, business people look around for a way to unload some of these nuisances.
“Today’s technology allows you to be very flexible,” says Robert Haver.
He’s referring to all those pieces of a business that can bog you down. He owns and operates Clinton Office Suites located at 54 Route 22. These furnished suites are equipped with the latest telecommunication systems and data infrastructure.
All sorts of professionals find that Clinton Office Suites can handle their business office problems efficiently. Insurance and real estate professionals, financial advisers and social workers, mental health experts and psychologists have found business homes here in the past.
“Also, people working for large companies who have been assigned to work at home come here,” adds Robert. They need a place with fewer distractions. And personal concerns always seem to be present when working at home.
An ever present danger at home is the cookie jar that has found a new home beside your laptop. Or, sometimes there can be an unexpected visit from a neighbor?
Distractions aside, there are additional considerations.
For smaller businesses — especially those just starting out — the costs associated with providing a full complement of business services can be prohibitive. You don’t want to suddenly be confronted with repairs to the equipment. And you don’t want to go searching for janitorial services because the one you had suddenly went out of business.
The spaces at Clinton Office Suites are fully furnished and have high speed Internet and wireless connectivity. A local telephone number can be supplied, and live phone answering services are provided — along with call forwarding and screening.
Packages here are flexible, and services can be tailored to meet client needs. Contracts are usually short term — and do not extend beyond one year.
Robert Haver owns the building — it’s a three story freestanding structure with parking. For more information, call him at 908-894-6230 and visit ClintonOfficeSuites.com.
Like most of us, Linda Morrow has been paying bills ever since she became an adult. And she’s handled the bookkeeping and bill paying for others for years.
With 20 years experience handling a family member’s finances, she recently decided to set up her own business. It is a continuation of what she’s been doing for all that time, and she is now getting her Bookkeeping & Billpay Service off the ground.
“My bill paying services offer peace of mind,” she says. “Especially if you have personal and business affairs that conflict with managing your daily affairs.”
Bill paying means meeting due dates, and in today’s fast world, due dates can zip past before one notices. In addition, the older we get, the more quickly the days fly by — the elderly are especially prone to miss the due dates of bills.
“I can either come to your home or office and pay your bills right there,” she explains. “Or I can bring all the documents back to my office and pay them.”
Arrangements are made on an individual basis — what might work for one might not work for another, and vice-versa. Linda’s Bookkeeping & Billpay Service is personalized and flexible.
“The services that I offer will be keeping an accurate account of all monthly, quarterly and miscellaneous bills due–and paying each one when due,” she says. “Monthly statements will be sent to the client showing what bills were paid for the month. I can also maintain personal documents, wills, life insurance policies, annuities, etc. to make sure all policies stay current, and premiums are paid when due. And I am fully insured.”
Linda covers Hunterdon, Somerset and Morris counties — and some adjacent areas. She’s based in Califon. Call her at 862-251-2990.
