Balancing Work and Social Life

August 12, 2016

Trivett, Dakota Posted on August 12, 2016

Are you spending too much time returning calls, sending emails, and confirming appointments playing catch up in the office? The stress of those extra hours can affect your relationships, family, and health greatly. That’s when we as virtual assistants come in to play. We are able to help you regain that balance between work and family life.

Creating a work life balance is not easily obtainable this day in age. We have way too many ties to our offices with smartphones, tablets, laptops, and other technology these days. Learning to shut down and leave the office at the office isn’t always easy for today’s society. Our lives have become steadily more hectic until we lose ourselves in the everyday hustle.  Home becomes the office, dinner with family and friends becomes checking emails, relaxing and decompressing becomes a thing of the past.

Your family and social life should not suffer in order to have a successful business. When your personal and social life start to suffer is when it is time to step back and learn to delegate. We here at 317 Virtual Services step in where we are needed to cater to your business’s needs. Taking the stresses of having to work those extra few hours off your shoulders so you can attend that soccer practice or not miss that friend’s birthday party is what we here at 317 can do for you. We can assure our Virtual Assistants will take the daily stresses off your shoulders and do it with pride!

Happy Birthday Frank Mascara!

Around 550,000 People Become Entrepreneurs Every Month

August 5, 2016

Reader, Grace “Around 550,000 People Become Entrepreneurs Every Month” Retrieved on August 4, 2016 Posted on August 5, 2016

The rate of new entrepreneurs in the United States has been steadily growing for two years, according to a new report.

The Kauffman startup index found that the rate of new entrepreneurs — or percent of non-business owning adults that started a business in a given month — has gone up from 2014, when 280 out of 100,000 adults became business owners, to 2016 when 330 out of 100,000 did. That translates to around 550,000 new entrepreneurs across the national, state and metro level every month.

Two years ago, the index saw its lowest rate of new entrepreneurs in 20 years. Today, the index is at its fifth highest level.

Other interesting tidbits from the report:

  • Women in particular have seen an increase, as the rate of new entrepreneurs jumped from 220 out of 100,000 adults to 260 from 2014 to 2015.
  • The rate of Latino entrepreneurs increased dramatically in the past 20 years. In 1996, 10 percent of new entrepreneurs were Latino. That rate jumped to 20.8 percent in 2015.
  • There are now more older entrepreneurs than before. The rate of new entrepreneurs ages 55 to 64 increased from 14.8 percent in 1996 to 24.3 percent in 2015.
