Using you home address for business may seem like the easy and affordable way to go when starting out. There's already a lot on your plate so an address can seem unimportant with all the other considerations in front of you.
Unfortunately, using a home address does more than somewhat diminish your potential business image. It can put you and your family at risk. It should come as no surprise how searchable each of us is and while most of that attention is sought after and intentional, you are also exposing your most personal information publicly and the wrong party could take advantage of that. This becomes increasingly important when inviting new or potential clients to your home. We have been trained and we train our children to never let a stranger in the house yet new business owners often overlook the obvious dangers in that situation because of financial concerns about leasing space.
An inexpensive solution to both of these problems is a virtual office. From a mailing address to a ready-to-go office by the hour, our new clients are always surprised and delighted by the affordability of our services. In one action you can build your business's reputation while safeguarding your home and family.
