The Traveling Entrepreneur: 5 Reasons to Choose a Virtual Office

By Townes Haas   |    February 13, 2014   |    11:59 AM

Many entrepreneurs must travel around the country to meet new clients, visit current ones or even connect with colleagues and employees. When you’re in another city, however, it can be difficult to find adequate office space that doesn’t involve hotel lounges or coffeehouses. 


Virtual office spaces provide traveling entrepreneurs with everything that they need even when they are nowhere near their home city. A virtual office basically feels like a real office with conference spaces, desks, phones, etc. The difference is that you don’t pay for the overhead. You rent the space from a virtual office service provider that takes care of the staffing and leasing the commercial space.

Virtual Office Benefits for an On-the-Go Entrepreneur

If you’re always on the move, then a virtual office space offers many different benefits to a busy entrepreneur, including:

  1. Always a place for a meeting: If you’re constantly on the road, you can’t exactly have meetings at your dedicated office – you might not even have a dedicated office. A virtual office allows you to have meetings where you are – whether it’s a face-to-face gathering with clients or a web conference with employees. You are set to go whenever you land, and you maintain your professional image with your clients.

  2. Access to everything you need: No more searching around for a coffeehouse that has a decent WiFi connection. Whether you are in Austin, San Francisco, or Toronto, you can walk into your virtual office and have access to a fully-furnished office with all necessary business needs, including landlines, voicemail and high-speed Internet.

  3. Reception services: For meetings in other cities, you may need handouts or special presentation materials that would be hard to carry on a plane. With a virtual office space, you can send the materials to the office, and a receptionist will always be available to sign for and receive the packages. No more worrying if the hotel received it, and if it did, where the hotel put your packages when they arrived.

  4. Full amenities: When anyone from colleagues to clients visits your office, you want to be able to offer them full amenities, including access to kitchens or break areas. Your virtual office comes fully stocked with items like coffee and snacks and includes necessary amenities like lounges and parking facilities.

  5. Still only pay for what you need: As a traveling business person, you know the importance of keeping your overall costs down, and a virtual office helps you do just that. No matter if you are in your home city or in one halfway across the country, you still only pay for the hour, day or week of space that you need.

Even when you are on the go, virtual office services from Intelligent Office can help you with all of your professional needs.
