Dreamscapes by MGR is Southern California’s leading custom swimming pool and landscape contractor and design firm.
Dreamscapes by M.G.R. started business as M.G.R. Construction in 1993. The company worked primarily as the premier masonry and landscaping sub-contractor to some of the most prestigious pool contractors and custom home builders in South Orange County. Many of these contractors do not have the capability to perform these services in-house and relied upon our expertise and experience to do this detailed work. In early 2003 we expanded and renamed the company to Dreamscapes By M.G.R. to give us better exposure with the individual homeowner. We have since become one of the top swimming pool and landscape contractors in Southern California.

Intelligent Office also provides access to office space and conference rooms after hours and during weekends. I did a diligent search prior to choosing to use Intelligent Office, and they were by far the best option for the price. Ever since I began using their using space, they have met or exceeded my expectations in customer service and professionalism."

"Not knowing what to expect as I walked into the suite, I was feeling a bit out of place in such an ‘executive’ environment. After all I am a physical therapist, not an ‘executive’. Filled with doubt about housing a medical practice in such a place, I had many concerns and questions. However, beginning with the introduction and then throughout the process I experienced the staff’s professionalism, warmth, and dedication to fulfill on what they promise and soon became confident that my first business was in the right place! Called a ‘boutique’ office suite, it is designed to fit your individual needs and indeed there are many different types of businesses here which made me much less hesitant to begin a healthcare practice in such an atypical location. I can tell you that my experience here has been almost flawless (you wouldn’t believe me if I said it had been) and my patients have felt at home. In fact I think they are getting a bit spoiled with all the amenities! This is a top-notch environment with amenities and detailed touches, a dedicated and caring group of professionals, and an excellent way to run a small business. Bottom line… I love intelligent office and how it works and could not be happier with my decision. I look forward to growing my business with them by my side and I know they will help me do just that."

Electrotherapy accelerates and promotes the healing process with no side effects and is very affordable.
If you are the least bit open to exploring an alternative to the drugs, physical therapy, surgery and other alternative treatments you have tried – if you are just a little bit curious if there could be a solution you have come to the right place. Most people who come in to see us, are in just this place. They come in saying they have “tried everything” and yet they don’t want the pain to rule their lives and they are open to really seeing if Dr. Lathrop and the FDA cleared medical technologies he uses can make a difference. And 9 times out of 10 they do – significantly!

If you’re running a small business, you probably have some vital and sensitive information about your company and its customers stored online. 63% of small businesses have been victims of a cyberattack and 79% of them do not have a cyberattack response plan*.
Is your business a part of the above statistic? If it is, you need to get to work creating a response plan for when an attack happens. Things you must do are: (1) notify customers of any security breaches; (2) regularly change passwords; (3) secure payment systems; (4) conduct frequent security audits; (5) consider hiring a cybersecurity firm to find weaknesses in your systems and procedures; (6) get a cybersecurity insurance policy. According to Jack J Landers of Teague Insurance in San Diego, these insurance policies are affordable and provide a wide array of policy limits. Many carriers are even offering extra coverage endorsements that can even be added on to their General Liability/Package policies at very low cost.

Based on a report from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, the San Diego region comes ninth for the number of technology patents granted with over 34,000, among other metropolitan areas from 2000-2013. The amount of intellectual property has more than doubled in the last decade!
Most of the innovation has been in biotechnology companies established in Sorrento Mesa and La Jolla. But what about non-biotech, non-clean-tech or non-software businesses like yours? What have you done in your organization in the last 1-2 years that has “wowed” customers and has given you an edge? Has it been better productivity? Have you come up with a product, process, or way of delivering your services that has put you ahead? If not, what is stopping you? Is it cash? Better planning? More creativity? Perhaps you are making some decent profits and don’t want to “rock the boat” too much?
A lean, practical and reasonably priced business strategy that uses a combination of virtual services may be the place to start. With many entrepreneurs and solo practitioners, we’ve found that what triggers innovation is when they start to think differently about using professional space or admin support.
Remember: it’s your business and your life. You make it what you want it to be.
There’s a lot of hype about “chatbots” lately in Silicon Valley. These are little artificial-intelligence programs that work like personalized assistants.* Microsoft talks about a bot that is a personal digital assistant that knows you, knows about your world and helps you with everyday tasks like ordering pizza using text, Skype or Slack. However, the digital beings (e.g., Alexa, Operator, Assist, x.ai, Siri, Magic, Fin, Messenger) that claim to make our lives easier, organize us and even make us feel emotionally better off are not the Nirvana we expect. Many times, chatbots cannot accomplish a task without the help of a human being in the “back office” somewhere around the world (be more inquisitive about this the next time you use a bot!). The bots may misinterpret what you want done because of your accent, tone or the way you phrased your question or need.
And in the business world, they won’t help you with handling a critical client or an irritated caller. It is very challenging to replace human interaction in day-to-day business dealings and settings. Assistance is not just about ordering things or playing the music you want. It is about paying attention to tone of voice and acting in consequence; it is about anticipating what your needs will be; making your clients feel taken care of; it is an exchange of information on a daily basis; it is about the nuances in a conversation to better interpret what you and your clients need.
The underlying reason chatbots exist is for companies like Facebook, Apple and Microsoft to keep you as a client/subscriber for their core services. So ask yourself whether the AI services you are using are putting you in the path of “wallet domination.”
*Please refer to “What Chatbots Reveal About Our Own Shortcomings”, by Jenna Wortham, The New York Times Magazine, April 21, 2016.
Virtual Impressions Matter
You’ve heard the old expression “first Impressions matter” when you meet someone. The same applies to your callers. Customers and prospects form an impression of you and your business within 7 seconds of initial contact, and 87% state that the tone of voice highly impacts their experience.
Though we see many improvements in customer service technology, customers still prefer to connect with a human being.
Having a friendly and professional person answering your phone creates a great experience for callers, opens a personal connection, builds trust, and increases the likelihood of repeat business. A virtual assistant can transfer calls to you wherever you are, and take messages when you can’t or don’t want to be reached. Your callers get the attention they deserve, you save on hiring a full-time employee and you get the freedom to do more with your business.
A top notch virtual assistant service will know how to handle prospects, current clients, solicitors, vendors and family/personal. These calls can be prioritized (e.g. create specific instructions for certain types of calls) and based on your schedule (there are times when you don’t want to take calls or only calls from certain people or companies).
What else can a Virtual Assistant do?
Remember, first caller impressions count for a lot!

In total, nearly one-third of employees are spending an hour or more a day on Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites during work hours, a study by virtual office space franchise Intelligent Office found.

Technology Fueling Workers' Desire for More Choice on the Job, Including Greater Flexibility and Mobility
DENVER, Apr 17, 2013 -- A new survey has found that technology is fueling workers' desire for more choice on the job, including greater flexibility and mobility. In a survey of more than 1,000 people in the United States and Canada, 61 percent want to use a more mobile device than a desktop while at work. Additionally, a third of respondents now want to work for a company that allows them to use their own technology. These are results of the newest survey from the Intelligent Office Work IQ brand, which looked at the use of technology and social media in the workplace. Read the press release.
In a world increasingly dominated by smartphones, it seems natural that the workforce is developing into a mobile one. No longer do workers need to go to the office to accomplish their daily tasks. They can answer emails, conduct meetings, take notes and keep organized on a calendar — all on a device that is not much larger than a business card

Your business is ready to take off. All you need is a launch pad that is more professional than the corner coffee shop. So consider a traditional full-time office, shared, or part-time, flexible office and staff without the overhead. You’ll have a private, fully furnished office with phones, internet service, conference rooms and a locked mail box. Our receptionist is your receptionist -always ready to handle your calls, schedule your appointments, and almost anything else you need. No more missed important calls, amateurish cell phone answering or business calls going straight to voicemail. And it all comes with a professional address worthy of your vision. There’s no stopping you now.
Image is critical in your business. So even though you still work out of your home office, your ambitions are bigger. You need an address to match. Something professional, prestigious. A place where you can meet with clients, receive packages and have someone answer the phone who doesn’t refer to you as Dad or Mom. Your hours are your own, so you’ll want secure access that lets you come and go as you please 24 hours a day. And mail forwarding when you don’t feel like going in to your office. All at a price that remembers you’re a freelancer, even if you are an ambitious one.
You don’t wait for clients to come to you - you go get them. You’re out there, solving their problems every day. Paying for an office you’re rarely in doesn’t make sense. But it sure would be nice to have access to a fully furnished and equipped executive office when you need one and wherever you go. Especially when you need to make a presentation. And that’s what we give you - a private office in every one of our North American locations. You get 24 hour access with all the amenities. Executive furnishing, phone and internet service, white boards and flat screens, conference rooms and even a kitchen. All available on an ala carte hourly, daily or weekly basis. Whatever fits your changing schedule and business needs.
Your docket is always full. So you rarely have time to sit in an office. Your clients only call when they need you, and that could happen at any time. You could be in your car, at home or in a place where a phone is off limits. Voice mail isn’t going to help your prospects and clients. They want a real person to answer the phone - and a highly trained, professional one at that. Our receptionists answer, screen and transfer your calls to any number you want. Our Intelligent Assistants can do intakes, confirm meetings and schedule your appointments. All from an office that looks incredibly buttoned up, on those occasions when you actually need one.
