Juan Ramirez, Owner of Marcelita's Cookies, specializes in Hispanic gourmet cookies. He has created a corporate gift idea that offers unique and personalized packaging to help you thank your customers. Juan joined VirtualOffiCenters in August 2016 and has rapidly become a frequent user. Below, he shares how VOC has helped him to be a better connector.
For many years, I have always worked out of my home-office and, when meeting with clients and prospects, I would frequent the local coffee shops. I probably know where most of them are in the Twin Cities. Unfortunately, they had become too crowded, loud and challenging to conduct business in. Then, I was invited to meet at OffiCenters and, the more I learned about it, the easier it was to join it. (Thanks Don Hoffer and Dr. Rebecca Amstutz).
VirtualOffiCenters is an ideal set up for me. I can still work out of my home office, but when I need to meet with clients and prospects I now have 5 locations to choose from. I always give them a mini-tour of OffiCenters and they are always quite impressed with the facilities and the friendliness of the staff.
I have been fortunate in having several customers and providers already being members of OffiCenters but I have also established new connections of potential customers, referrals and business partners. I always enjoy meeting other entrepreneurs and business owners who are committed to grow their businesses, personal development, etc., and OffiCenters certainly makes it easier. Although, I have been a member of Virtual OffiCenters for a short period, my investment has been easily justified: I have become more productive, it has helped my corporate image when meeting with customers, and my network of contacts has increased. Overall, OffiCenters is now a key part of Marcelita’s Cookies to do business.
I am always available to meet and would love learning more about your business as well as letting you know more about Marcelita’s Cookies.
