Over the past three months, a lot of us have had extra time on our hands while staying at home. AdvantEdge Workspaces clients and staff have been busy with a whole host of personal and professional projects! Below is a list of things our community suggests you can do to further your business, relax, stay productive, or help family and friends out:
1. Long Term Projects
Let's get to tackling projects at work that always got pushed to the backburner- like refreshing your website, creating eye-catching new business cards, and even starting a blog! The best way to get started is to put a small block of time on your calendar each day to dedicate to your project. By the time we are back to business as usual, you will be ready to launch and hit the ground running. Click here to learn more about work projects you should complete during these times!
2. Having a Green Thumb
Since home improvement stores are some of the few places that are physically open, eveyone is out gardening! AdvantEdge clients have been working to improve their home gardens, and have even dabbled in growing new plants and vegetables! One client even shares that pulling weeds has been a good project to take on. We agree- it’s an activity you can truly get lost in. Throw in some headphones, put on a podcast, wear comfy clothes and shoes, and your yard will be extra beautiful in no time!
3. Lending a Virtual Hand
Despite the need to still keep a distance from people outside of your household, you can help out family and friends virtually. One AdvantEdge client has been virtually babysitting her niece- a fun way to be with even the littlest of family members while providing parents with some childcare relief. You can also offer up tech support to older friends or family who may struggle to figure out Zoom and other platforms on their own. Another way to help give back virtually is to offer up your skills and tutor or mentor students and young adults who are having difficulty navigating certain school subjects or the job market during these times.
4. Staying Flexible
COVID-19 threw a wrench in everyone’s work life, but some have been more affected than others, with events and other outside schedules drastically impacting businesses. Both staff and clients at AdvantEdge have been focused on dynamically adapting to ever-changing schedules and guidelines. Craig Kirby, founder of the non-profit “Golf.My Future.My Game.” says one of his projects has been adapting to the changes in PGA and LPGA schedules. While there have been a few charity tournaments to tide golf lovers over, it’s safe to say that the absence of sports has posed challenges to businesses and fans everywhere!
In the physical office spaces, client services coordinators have been implementing social distancing protocol, disinfecting shared spaces, and keeping services like call answering running smoothly. The whole team has adapted proper procedures and continue to make both virtual services and workspaces a safe and supportive space for clients.
