Better Days Ahead

Clearwater Executive office
Spring has sprung! As the weather gets better and better many of us are finding it more and more difficult to drag ourselves into the workplace every day. Play? Work? Hmmm, I know the answer to those questions is very different when it comes to getting me motivated out the door at times.
We are all aware that we need to work to be able to ultimately play in the many recreational offerings in the Clearwater, Tampa Bay areas. There are so many times we look outside our executive office or conference center windows and long for the outdoors. Those of us that are able to utilize the luxury and freedom that a virtual satellite office option offers have more of an opportunity to play when meetings can be scheduled within our time frames.
In either situation, the Tampa Bay area is an ideal place to conduct any type of business. From the office suite executives to the landscape architects, and more, we should all find time to enjoy the weather and beauty that surrounds us. When the walls of your office, boardroom, warehouse, garage, restaurant or hotel start closing in, explore Clearwater, Tampa and more. Remember we work to live, not live to work, but if you have to…what better corner of our own little paradise to do it in?!

Is it Spring yet???

Office Space in Clearwater Even though we’ve been experiencing an unusually mild Florida winter, it’s still been a bit cool for those of us long-term residents with thin blood. I think we’re all ready for Spring because it means that summer is not far off. We may find ourselves staying indoors, working a little harder and longer in our Tampa executive suites only because it’s too cold to enjoy our surrounding attractions.

Virtual offices afford us to stay in our comfortable living rooms or home office spaces except to take a quick car ride to the building address to pick up mail or conduct a meeting in the conference room. This too shall pass as the warm weather returns and gives us a reason to take a “mental health” day to enjoy our Tampa & Clearwater fun and sun.

Tourists and spring breakers get a taste of our area, we feast on it a majority of the year. So why not get out of the offices, boardrooms, conference rooms and executive cold, concrete and steel surroundings and take in the sun and surf for a while. Who could blame you, you live in paradise. After all, we work to live, but those of us that may live to work at least we try to find an office that will be a pleasure to go to everyday, like Hodusa Towers Executive Suites in Clearwater. They offer a list of the most sought-after, inclusive amenities in the area with comparable pricing. Stop in for a tour and see what I mean. The receptionists are there to assist you and you may even get a fresh brewed cup of coffee from them. Their ready for your visit at 28870 US Hwy 19N, Suite 300 in Clearwater, FL 33761 or give them a call for more information, 727-799-1555.

Happy Spring…start pulling out the shorts and sandals!

Happy Thanksgiving From Executive Office Space Tampa

Thanksgiving is fast approaching and as I think about all the things that I need to do I am reminding myself of the reason for this most American of holidays.
Being thankful

My reasons for being thankful are plentiful but there is one reason that stands above the rest for without it the other blessings would not be possible. We here in The United States of America have freedom in the true sense of the word. Because of the sacrifice of so many young men and women and their families we have the right to vote for anyone we choose, to read and write our opinions whether popular or not, to express who we are with reckless abandon and pursue any line of work out heart desires. We may not all agree but we have earned the right to disagree. Let us all celebrate the things that are right about this country, let’s build this country back up to the greatness it has earned through the blood and sweat of our forefathers. There is no greater country on this planet and I personally am thankful to be a citizen of the United States of America.

If it is time for your small business or office to grow or make a change, now is a great time at Hodusa Towers.  Here at Hodusa Towers we offer many amenities for our Executive Suite holders, as well as offering virtual / satellite options for your privacy, safety and convenience. We offer several sizes of conference rooms to accommodate our clients and as well hourly rentals to anyone needing a conference room in the Tampa Bay or Clearwater area. Our conference center offers copy, scanning, fax and e mail access. Free wireless internet is provided. The kitchen has hot coffee and cold filtered water all day and is available 24 hours a day. Many of our tenants network with our other tenants and it helps foster a friendly environment to help you achieve your goals. We are conveniently located off of US 19 in Clearwater easily reached from any direction. Come by and check us out. We will be happy to show you around.

Executive Office Parties for St. Pat’s Day

There are many parties celebrated on St. Patrick’s Day! The holiday gives Tampa office workers yet another reason to gather after hours. (as if they need one)  Executive office personnel are reputably known for their office parties. They have been the subject of many movies,  jokes and even Broadway plays.

What better way to melt away the weekly stress of the office environment and board room. Whether you occupy office space, utilize a conference center or work from home and do the virtual office; everyone needsto find an outlet. So when a holiday presents itself as another opportunity or excuse to cut loose, throw off those ties and heels and go for it.

Tampa Bay, Clearwater and surrounding metro areas offer some of the most sought after executive spaces. Buildings for sale or lease offer many amenities and options for the corporate executive staff as well as the entrprenurial sole proprietor just getting his shingle hung out for his new business venture.

At home workers that just are not in a position to take advantage of the office suite lease, can still be a virtual office space client and join their genre at the local St. Pat’s Day parties, too. No one would even know that their office dress code is jammies, sweats, shorts & tees. Or even that their coffee break may be taking place pool side in the backyard. Lucky Duck!!! Now, now cut them some slack…I’m sure their stress levels rise too! Especially when they can’t find their flip-flops to go out for the morning paper or walk the dog!

Bottom line is no matter what your situation is, take advantage of the green beer, corned beef and cabbage at the local pub with your fellow “Irishmen”! Share ideas, tell someong about the great office suite locale & deal you found, hints and tips to help one another cope with the additional stresses  the world and economy has laid on our plates, and know that we can all sail the same rocky boat a little easier after a few hours of comradery. And don’t forget to partake moderately in those green beers!

Enjoy and stay safe!

We are at the onset of yet another holiday season

New Year from Executive Office TampaWell, here we are at the onset of yet another holiday season.

The turkey is eaten and the leftovers have probably appeared in every new possible recipe one can create or find online.

So, now we are on the downslope to Christmas. I say “downslope” because I’ve been seeing Christmas decorations everywhere since Halloween!!! If it weren’t for the big Thanksgiving dinners and grocery special store ads, I think if Iblinked it would have passed me right by.

It seems as though we are breezing through the holidays faster and faster with each year that passes. They come and go almost without thought of their true meaning. By the time the actual day arrives, we’ve been inundated with ads, specials, sales and hype, we can often lose some of the celebration exitement.

My only saving grace is to approach the holidays at MY pace, trying not to get caught up in the commercialism, and concentrate on the important parts of the season. Family, fellowship, love and hope come to mind. Especially in the difficult times we are experiencing, these become my priorities.

I also find that my gift giving thoughts are heading in a more traditional direction, too. Homemade gifts have been my primary searches on line and there are so many ways to individualize gifts. For instance, do a family gift basket so that they can all enjoy your choice and remember you while they’re indulging. Such as a Christmas morning breakfast basket filled with everything they need to cozy up to a warm home cooked meal. There are so many options. Maybe a large decorative mixing bowl filled with pancake mix, a few flavored syrups and jellies,New Year from HodUSA muffins, cocoa mix, some coffees, a mixing spoon and they’re on their way. Even a basket with spaghetti or lasagna fixins, a bottle of wine and some glasses would be welcome. Have a movie buff in the family? How about putting together a video, popcorn, a variety of old-time movie candies, and a couple of sodas for a nice quiet evening at the old homestead?

Once you start, the possibilities are endless and can only grow from there. Even if you still want your friends and families to be able to tear into a gift… consider knitting a holiday scarf (the easiest think on earth), take one of your favorite pics of them and photo shop them into a festive or funny holiday scene, or get everyone a silly pair of holiday socks.

No matter how you chose to celebrate or what you do, make it safe and happy!


Tampa Bay is the Way

Tampa Executive Office SpaceTampa Bay is a well-known area and often visited by internationals from all over the world. It’s chosen for vacations, events, meetings and so much more because of it’s appeal and location. Tampa International Airport is the hub of many travelers. It has been priviledged to host everything from Super Bowls to Political Conventions. Just to name a few, downtown Tampa touts Ybor City for the night-life, the famous Columbia Restaurant (since 1905), and if you fancy an after dinner, hand-rolled cigar, go right next door to Gonzalez y Martinez Cigar Factory  is the place to go.

You can get to so many other well known attractions from Tampa. There’s the ever popular Clearwater Beach where many of our college youth make their way for Spring Break. Aside from the youth attraction, everyone can take advantage of the star rated restaurants, lounges and shops. Not to short change Clearwater, even a little bit, it has become star-struck with Winter, the dolphin, starring in “Dolphin Tale” and becoming a famous Hollywood star. She continues to call the Clearwater Aquarium her home.

Just a road trip to the east will put you in touch with Mickey and friends at Disney in Orlando. Orlando, like any other areas lead to more attractions and possibilities.

Florida is truly the Sunshine State when it comes to weather, but it can also relate to the “sunny” feeling you get when vacationing, exploring or visiting the endless areas of interest throughout the entire state. From Pensacola to the Keys and everything in-between, you are sure to find your ideal spot or island escape. Locals are more than accomodating when it comes to showing you where they go to enjoy the fun, food, entertainment and “Old Florida” flair if you tire of the commercial, touristy attraction.

You are never too far from sun, fun and sand. A day at the beach means so much more than sunbathing. There’s usually kayaking, jet skiing, fishing, parasailing or windsurfing rentals nearby, just to mention a few.

Let your imagination run free like sandpipers along the surf! Come on down! Florida’s waiting!

Conference Center Hourly Rentals Perhaps is What You Need

Executive Office Space TampaWhether you have a home office, a satellite/virtual office, or actual executive office space; there are times where a separate meeting space is needed to accomodate you and your clients.

The home office does not always offer the optimal conditions under which you can conduct your individual business meetings. As convenient as it is to save on expenses by having a home office, you may still find a need for larger, alternate space. Maybe it’s a privacy or security issue. This could also be the reason you’ve elected to set up a satellite/virtual office. This option presents itself with great area expansion options for one’s business, but it is just that, “virtual”. No walls, no rooms,  no extras. Finally, the Executive Office space. Sure you have professional office in a nice building in a great location, but it may be just a bit small to accomodate more than one or two more people, and that’s where the Conference Center comes in for consideration.

The Conference Center typically offers other professional services, as well. There are usually various size rooms (many with phones), some offer the option of  using their wi-fi connection, along with copy and fax machines made available for your use. There may also be a receptionist at the facility that will meet and greet you and your guests which adds a personal, professional touch.

Here’s an example of someone that would utilize this type of service…

The attorney who is detached from a large firm who hung his/her shingle at an Executive Office building and is leasing space in order to make a name for themselves via private practice. He/she has expenses and overhead just like anyone else, so they opted for the smaller office space. They have depositons, meetings and/or mitigations and do not want to uncomfortably force their clients or their attorneys into the small office area, as elegant and professional as it may be. Now the conference room becomes the sensible way to go. Everyone has enough elbow room to spread out paperwork. The option to have a conference call with other parties, such as a magistrates or judges, is viable and the attorney has improved on his/her level of professionalism.

More and more Conference Centers are available daily and offer reasonable hourly rates. Some will work out a full-day rate, which can save more. Many have refreshements, such as coffee, tea, or water for you as well as your clients.

See what possibilities lie ahead for you and your business!


Economy Driven Office Space Option

Small businesses are still the backbone and driving force in our nation. However, the recent turn of economic events has forced many businesses to find alternative methods of staying afloat and avoiding very hard hits.

In an effort to regain some capital by saving the expense of outside office space, perhaps the Virtual Office in Tampa or Clearwater is a viable solution. This affordable option lends you the professional atmosphere of an office. Our Clearwater Executive Office buildings help you extend your market area without having to set up a facility. We can provide the most sought after business amenities:

Virtual Office Space – Virtual office gives you a chance to own a high profile reputed address in a city of your choice, at a fraction of the buying or renting cost of such an address.

Phone Answering Service – Virtual office phone answering service bridging the gap between you and your numerous clients.

Professional address – A prestigious building to be used as the business address. A professional address alleviates the privacy and personal security concerns of running a home-based business. A user can expand into new markets by utilizing a provider with multiple locations to establish a professional presence in the desired growth markets.

Mailing address – The professional address can be used for accepting, sending and forwarding mail without the connotations of a Post Office Box. Some VO providers offer 24/7 access to individually assigned and locked mailboxes. This allows the staff of a VO user to have a centralized location as a convenient vehicle for the secure transfer of paper documents 24/7. A mail only provider may be subject to USPS regulations.

Reception Courtesies – Receptionists at the business address can receive and sign for incoming overnights, deliveries, packages and provide document drop-off/pick-up services. On-site witnesses and notaries may be available, depending on the provider.

Business Meeting Space – The on-demand use (hourly, daily or weekly) of conference rooms and offices for meetings. Meeting space can often be rented at short notice.

Executive Suites – A small percentage of VO users lease space full-time time

On-site amenities – A full-service virtual office will provide wireless internet, fax-copier-printer, phones,  kitchen (often with beverages) and a business-worthy lobby/waiting area.

This could be the answer you’re looking for as a short-term recovery or even a long-term way to expand your market areas.
