If anyone out there has ever had to move their office, they will know exactly what I mean. It’s quite the undertaking to move an office, and I’ve done it a couple of times now.
One of the things I decided to do that helped me out a bunch was to create a spreadsheet with little checkboxes that listed all of the places that I had to change my business address, things like:
- letterheads and all other kinds of stationary
- email signatures
- affiliate accounts (we want to actually receive those cheques we’ve earned!)
- online accounts (things like Carbonite, PayPal, ebay, etc.)
- billing accounts of any kind
And then I would just go through the list and check things off as I completed them. I started off trying to think of everything I possibly could, and then afterwards when the odd item inevitably showed up that I had missed, I would go back and add it to my list for future use.
So this time around there were a lot of items already there, but of course there are more to add every time. So, I suggest to keep an ongoing list for future use, because you never know when you’ll need it again, and who wants to waste all that time trying to reinvent your big list of address changes when there are already so many other things to do when you move your office!
