Every day there are more entrepreneurs finding the courage and passion to find their place in the business world and trends show that these entrepreneurs are taking that leap earlier than their parents. A study from the BNP Paribas Global Entrepreneur Report shows there are more people between ages 20-35 starting more companies, managing larger staff and gunning for higher profits than their predecessors. According to Fortune Magazine, there could be two reasons: a) it's easier to create a business than it was before and b) millennials may be open to failure more than baby boomers because our parents said, "It's OK to fail because you can get back up on that horse and try again".
But the takeaway here is more businesses are popping up and are being led by younger, inexperienced CEOs every year. They might be a genius at coding or amazing public speakers, but to run a start-up and to see it grow, they may need to handle a lot, if not everything. They'll learn about all the daily administrative tasks, internet search on how to do payroll, ask a friend to do a free and simple logo design and boom, they have a business!
Except they had to neglect other parts of their work – possibly parts they're most passionate about – just to make sure everything else surrounding the new business is up and running.
That's where Office Depot's Business Services can become your best friend, co-worker, or both! With Office Depot Business Services, you can have professionals supporting you, your business and your customers so you don't have to drown in administrative duties: web design and hosting, digital marketing, accounting and finance, and all things tech – everything that can take you away from actually running your business. Office Depot's mission is a personal one: making sure you do what you love and be successful at it. We'll do the rest.
The phrase spreading yourself too thin comes to mind. When running a business, you need A+ work in EVERY facet of your company, not A+ work here, B+ work there and C+ work out there. Office Depot recognizes this and that's why we are undergoing a massive transformation that supports a vital part of our economy - providing much-needed business services for our small, mid and enterprise businesses.

It's the all-in-one platform to find professionals to work with you in handling the stuff that takes you away from your strengths.
