The Top Three “Fake It ‘Till You Make It” Hacks for Entrepreneurial Millennials

Consider this:  77% of millennials* say flexible work hours make them more productive, while 64%** seek jobs with flexible locations.  Millennials are shirking the 9-5 office job to pursue their own business ventures—and now they’re looking for tools to make their dreams a reality.

According to  VoIP provider Ooma — office phone system designer for startups — there are a few smart tricks that can help you get your next big break. Here are three “hacks” entrepreneurs can use to cast a bigger shadow:

HACK #1: TAKE THE CALL NO MATTER WHAT

Make your smartphone double as one of your business phones. With a 2-in-1 mobile app, the invincible network, crystal clear audio, and universal coverage of your business phone extends to anywhere you need to be—since you can’t afford to miss a call.

HACK #2: BUILD A TEAM BOTH BROAD AND DEEP

Make expertise and innovative thinking your #1 hiring factors—don’t let location scare you from a rockstar candidate. With today’s office phone systems and other remote work tools, your team can stay hyper-connected no matter what zip code they’re in.

HACK #3: INVEST IN YOUR COMPANY FOUNDATION EARLY

The right organizational structure is sink-or-swim for your future growth. Set clear responsibilities and roles—and invest in tools like a business phone system, CRM, and project management software in the beginning so that scaling is seamless.
