Planning a Move and Opening a Business? This Guide Can Help!
Are you a busy entrepreneur with a business that’s outgrown your home? If so, a move may be in your future! Managing a move and a thriving new startup all at the same time can be pretty stressful, but this guide from Beasley & Henley Interior Design can save you time and tension.
Let’s Take Care of Business
You don’t want to stress about your business while you’re managing your move. So before we get into planning those steps, let’s talk about some must-do professional tasks. Including:
Forming an LLC
If you want to protect your new business, you should think about whether forming an LLC is the right move. LLC’s help to shield the personal finances of entrepreneurs from liability while also setting these individuals up for additional tax savings. You can get started with your LLC paperwork online to avoid paying legal fees but be sure to research the requirements and regulations for LLCs in your particular state. Each state has its own rules.
Designing a Workspace
Before you move into your new home, you want to make sure you have a productive and dedicated workspace set up. This can be a major project to take on when you’re also trying to manage a fledgling business and a move. This is why you may want to enlist the help of experienced interior design professionals, like Beasley & Henley Interior Design.
Flip through their interior detailing lookbook to see some of the many offices and homes they have transformed to get ideas for your own space. Then schedule a consultation to get more information on bringing this project to life for your new business.
Hiring a Virtual Assistant
Getting help with the design of your home workspace can relieve some pressure. Since you’ll be managing a busy schedule and to-do list, however, you may also want to consider looking for a virtual assistant. You can hire a freelance assistant just to keep you organized during the move, or you can keep this pro around whenever you need help in the future.
Now, Let’s Work on Your Move
Enlisting help and setting up the right entity can set your new business up for success. With these items checked off the list, you can start planning your move. Here’s what to work on:
Hiring Professional Movers
Your time is valuable. Particularly if you are a busy entrepreneur. Since packing and moving can take up so much of your time, it may be in your best interest to hire a professional moving company. A full-service move can come with higher costs, but the savings for your time and stress levels will be priceless. Give yourself plenty of time to shop around for the best rates but book your movers ASAP, so you won’t miss out on your preferred dates.
Setting Up Internet and Utilities
If you plan on managing a new business out of your new home, you want to be able to hit the ground running. As soon as you close on that home, go ahead and begin to set up any utilities needed for your personal and professional life. There are resources available to help you get everything you need for your home and business connections.
Staying Connected on The Go
Now this one can be tricky if you’re planning a long-distance move. Internet service can be spotty in hotels and isn’t always secure. That’s why if you plan to drive or fly to your final destination, you may want to invest in a mobile hotspot. You could also use the hotspot feature on your phone, but this can drain your battery. Besides, if you want to travel and work in the future, having a top-rated mobile hotspot can come in handy.
It’s not impossible to balance a move with a successful new business. However, it does take some preparation and planning to manage both at once. You can also relieve some stress and pressure by hiring professionals to help you with each of these projects. If you need help designing a new home workspace Beasley & Henley Interior Design is here for you.
