E|SPACES Cool Springs and Belle Meade

I really dislike paying taxes. I dislike all the work it takes to pull together records to pay taxes. I dislike paying someone to figure out how much I owe in taxes. I hate reviewing 50 pages of forms with equations that only a theoretical physicists would love. I dislike going to the post office to pay for special postage so I can prove that I paid the taxes. I hate remembering a deduction I didn’t take five minutes after I mailed the taxes.

Grow Your Company From Start Up to High Value Grow Your Company From Start Up to High Value

You do not want to miss Jim Lackey’s presentation April 10th! It is easy to start a company. Many do it every day. And some develop into good businesses and provide a living for the founders. But few break through to become great success stories and generate high financial returns for the founders and investors.

So what is the difference? How do you take the next steps from a small, comfortable business that may offer lifestyle revenue, to a company that offers multiple exit opportunities—acquisition, merger or even public offering? Maybe an even more fundamental question is, “Should you?”

Wedding at E|SPACES

By Phil Gibbs on February 18, 2011

Comments

And you thought E|SPACES was just a cool work and meeting space. Over the weekend E|SPACES was transformed from workplace to wedding venue and looked quite astounding. White draping hung from the ceiling to the floor, chairs were lined up for the walk down the aisle, and arrangements of calla lilies filled vases. The back of the space was transformed into a gorgeous reception area by geraniums, white candles, and a tower of Gigi’s Cupcakes.

Before the wedding started, guests mingled near the main television to watch a picture slide show of the soon to be married couple. At the reception, two whiteboards were displayed so friends and family could write loving messages to the newlyweds. A Dream Come True Catering added to the mix with delicious food such as stuffed mushrooms, roast beef sandwich bites, and tangerine-topped chicken salad.

E|SPACES is not just a workplace, but also a great venue to throw events. And if you ask the bride, you might find out our concierges have talents far beyond business concierge. According to the bride, “Dale has done so much for me and has been there every step of the way, I feel like he should be one of my bridesmaids.”
