On today’s Atlanta Small Business Show:


Co-Working Spaces in Metro Atlanta

IgniteHQ - Co-working spaceAmazon, Google, Apple, and Disney…All small businesses started from homes or garages. Homes are great places to start small, but an office environment provides so many things a home just doesn’t. In the past ten years, several co-working spaces have been created across metro Atlanta. While many are located in densely populated urban areas, some locations have been established in the suburbs as well.

We have a list of the most popular co-working spaces in the metro Atlanta area, starting with Roam Innovative Workplace, located in Dunwoody and Alpharetta. It has a full-service cafe, business class wi-fi, elegant meeting rooms with a/v and apple tv displays. Roam also partners with local food vendors to provide catering for business meetings.
The second location, Strongbox West Co-Working Spaces in West Midtown. Visitors can expect free parking, mail and packaging services, an onsite coffee shop, high-speed internet and access to conference and event rooms (depending on membership). The third location is Nex Atlanta in East Atlanta. This space offers file cabinet rental and mail service, a notary, weekend and evening access, and 24/7/365 access.

For a more in-depth look at the list of five locations and what they could possibly provide your small business, check out the full article, Five Co-Working Spaces for the Metro Atlanta Urban or Suburban Entrepreneur.

Why Written Contracts are Preferred Over Verbal

contractsAs a small business owner, you understand the importance of having contracts that present a clear, concise and fair message. You also know how important not having one impacts your business…instead, relying on a verbal contract.

You’re a friendly person and might have arrangements with associates in where a written contract might not make sense. For example, you may have agreed over the phone to make a process or business tool-trade with someone you’ve done business with in the past. But let’s say their equipment or process was defective and the associate denied anything was wrong with it. You might want to take them to court, but have no proof of an agreement between the two of you.

In a recent blog, small business attorneys (Lerman Law Associates) say it would be difficult for a judge to uphold the terms of your verbal contract when it’s your word against your associate’s. There are some cases under the statute of frauds in which you will need a written contract to be valid in court, including the following:

  • Transactions involving more than $500
  • A job expected to take longer than one year to complete
  • A real estate or land transaction
  • An agreement to pay off someone else’s debt
  • Marriage

As a Small Business Owner, the Rent is Due Every Day

Rory VadenAs a small business owner, how long do you need to do certain things like: work hard, being disciplined, pushing it to the limit, motivating yourself…Basically, when will the moment arrive where you can cross the invisible finish line?

In a conversation with Rory Vaden (author of the New York Times best-selling book Take the Stairs and Co-founder of Southwestern Consulting), Rory says there is no invisible line because success is never owned. Success is only rented and the rent is due every day.
