Doing Your Business On The Road

Do you spend a lot of time in your car and frequently need to take materials to client appointments or business meetings? When your vehicle is an extension of your office and you conduct business at numerous locations, having a system for transporting documents and supplies and keeping your car well organized is critical for making sure you arrive at your appointments on time with everything you need.

Files-on-the-go

If you need to transport paper files to meetings, a briefcase or tote bag that can hold several hanging files or a portable accordion file holder can be good solutions for keeping documents organized and easy to find. Each section can be designated for meeting handouts, marketing materials and office supplies you frequently need such as name tags, thank you cards, envelopes, tape, and a stapler. You might also need a file for expense records, or you could use a plastic envelope to keep your receipts.

It’s the small things . . . 

In addition to documents, there may be other items you frequently need that would be good to have organized in your car. A pencil box, pouch or other small container keeps pens, paper clips, sticky notes, flash drives, and other small office supplies organized and easy to find. Transparent pouches like the kind sometimes used for cosmetics are particularly handy since you can easily see the contents; these also work well for small electronics and charging cables. I also keep a Travel-Pouch (my mom called it a ditty bag) it’s kept in my front seat organizer compartment that contains a toothbrush/toothpaste, bandaids, aspirin, chapstick. Small blush compact, lipgloss and a stash of energy bars for those days when there is no time to stop and eat lunch. If you aren’t using an electronic notes system on your smartphone or computer, a small notebook kept in your car tote or vehicle console is helpful for noting mileage, expenses or other short notes.

Plan ahead

A key aspect of being well organized is good planning. When your day involves driving from one meeting to another, planning the night before to make sure that your car tote is well stocked with everything you’ll need will save stress in the morning when you are busy getting ready to leave. I put in the addresses of where I’m going on a particular day into my MAPS APP on phone.

A checklist will help you remember to pack everything you need:

  • Have you printed all necessary meeting handouts or presentation materials?
  • Do you have an adequate supply of brochures/flyers/business cards?
  • If you will be using a whiteboard do you have dry erase markers, eraser and marker remover?
  • If you will be using a computer or laptop to give a presentation, have you copied the presentation to your laptop and backed it up on a portable flash drive?
  • Do you have your laptop, mouse, smartphone, headset and charging cables?
  • Do you need to pack a lunch and water bottle?
  • Do you need an extra set of clothes and shoes?
  • Do you need a coat or jacket for later in the day?

It’s More Than A Lavish Luxury

 

meeting planningSMALL BUSINESS CONCIERGE

Small businesses sometimes need extra support for specific projects or ongoing needs, without the need or hassle of hiring an additional employee.

 If you don’t want to take on the added expense of a full or even part-time assistant or additional employee, you can still get the help you need… just when you need it. 

 A cost-effective solution, our team can serve as a personal small business concierge that makes phone calls, arrange travel or other bookings, provide internet research or complete to-do lists. 

As part of a growing trend of outsourcing business tasks, small business concierges are playing an important role in today’s business workplace by providing cost-saving benefits to businesses and individuals. 

Concierges can perform many of the same services as office-based employees but without the associated costs such as payroll tax, worker’s compensation, superannuation, sick, and other leave, or training, office space, cell phone, etc. 

The list is endless; just let us know what your goals are and we can create a customized program to suit your business needs. 

Please communicate the details – the more specific information from you helps to ensure the fastest and most accurate response possible. Feel free to contact Cheryl @  CC Home Concierge Co. to schedule a 30-minute complimentary consultation at (860)961-6824.

 

Are You Trying To Do It All? Why?

Why use a concierge service? Because trying to “do it all” is really hard…and stressful.

Like, trying to get to your kid’s soccer game (before it’s over!) when you still have to get across town to the dry cleaners before they close.

Or, trying to get a plumber for the clogged sink in the kitchen when you’re already running late to a business meeting.

Does This All Sound Familiar?

I get it, the constant pull you live with and the feelings of overwhelm, guilt, inadequacy and frustration that comes with it all.

Home and Business Concierges can help you with life, not just your lists!

Quick Guide: Planning The Awesome Holiday Office Party

Office-Christmas-Party8 Simple Secrets to planning an Awesome Holiday Office Party

If the thought of planning the holiday office party has you hoping that the Grinch DOES steal Christmas – Just hang on, I can help you out along with taking away all the stress of planning.

 

  1. Get Organized – Recruit a couple of Elves (your teammates) No one should do it all on own! You can create a list of tasks and then delegate to your Elves (teammates)..
  2. Get Ideas – First, you need to get ideas for the party from the employees. There are two ways I have done this, that’s by setting up an online questionnaire, I use Survey Monkey . The setup is easy, but since you are delegating task this is a good one to give to your Tech Department Elves. The other way of collecting ideas is a simple Suggestion Box (they still are the best)!
  3. Choose a Theme – After, you have collected all the ideas, now choose a theme for the party. If you usually are partying around all your daily equipment-desks, computers,xerox machine, it’s kind of hard to get into the Festive Holiday Spirit. Think of unique and different options – Here is a short list of suggestions: Art Galleries, Museums, Wineries, Country Inns, Community Barns are fun, you can create a New England Christmas in Connecticut feeling!
  4. Donation Area – Tis’ The Season For Giving. Employees love to give – set up an area for your employees to bring a non-perishable food and/or Toy. Choose 2 charities, arrange to have items picked up the night of the party by a certain time. Announce that the items need to be in the boxes by 7:30 pm for example. What a great way to spread some Holiday Spirit and Magic!
  5. Hire Music – Hire a live local band that you know does a Unique Christmas Repertoire or hire a DJ that will keep the party in a positive party vibes.
  6. Make it Night-Time – Make the party an evening event, this way the employees can invite a guest, their spouse, or family.
  7. Designated Driver – Set up with Uber night of party, if anyone needs a ride home (paid for or discount) or with your Employees, create a designated driver program, they can earn merchandise or money.
  8. Give Real Gifts – As a meeting service concierge I have cleaned up after many of company Christmas parties – I had observed my first year that employees would leave behind the box or bag with the certificate and card. You know, the one you have to go online and order your gift for a certain value. I have seen employees leave certificates worth $1000 and over. They want the Real Stuff – The gift they can take home and share with their family.The gift that when they look at it makes them feel good that their management took the time to think of them.

Enjoy!

How To Chi in Some Energy With Feng Shui . . .

I have been studying Feng Shui  lately – I would like to add this service to my Home & Office Concierge Service. I suffer from depression, I am looking for a more holistic way to treat it and I read an article in a wellness center over the summer about how Feng Shui has been found to help with people suffering from depression . . . I was intrigued.

Cleaning and Organizing for people in their homes and offices for over 20 years, I do understand the concept of placement – and in other blogs I have written about how a home, office, and/or space has its own “heartbeat”. So, I am beginning to understand placement along with symbols to energize an area. I’m getting there!

If you would like to work with me in this very infantile stage of my learning the powers of Feng Shui – please reach out to me (860)961.6824 (leave me a message that you’re interested in FENG SHUI and I’ll get back to you), we can learn together – it will be very affordable to start out at this stage of the process in  developing an outline for this service.

*Side Note – I chose this video not only because Nancy is simple in her explanation of the process – but I love Olivia Newton-John . . . Who doesn’t right? Enjoy . . . . . . . .
