Independent professionals, such as yourself, have a lot more control over their work lives than traditional employees. Many of you are probably working from home or out of the local coffee shop. You may enjoy these spaces, but they aren’t the best for growing your business. Fortunately, the growing number of co-working and shared office spaces provide a great alternative that will help you accelerate your growth. Let’s take a look at how this is possible.
Improve your productivity.
Let’s face it, working from home can be one giant distraction. Anything from the television to cleaning can suck you into a black hole of procrastination. Before you know it, 5 o'clock has come and all you’ve gotten done is the laundry. By removing yourself from these distracting environments and creating a space that is solely for work, you create a separation between work time and personal time.
Find the right people.
As an independent professional, it can be difficult to outsource tasks to others because you’re used to doing everything yourself. There will be a time when you need to contract other professionals to do work for you. For instance, an independent lawyer might want to redesign his website but doesn't have the time to learn the necessary skills. Because shared office spaces are populated with professionals with a wide variety of skills, it’s likely that there is a web designer just a few desks away that could help. That same lawyer might also benefit by providing legal services to the early stage startup sharing the same workspace. Shared office spaces are bursting at the seams with talented professionals committed to success. Networking with those that share the office space is a great way to make new connections and land new clients.
Reinvest cost savings into your business.
Co-working and shared office spaces are cheaper than a traditional office space. Not only does this allow you to keep more of the money you make, you can reinvest it into growing your business. Maybe you’ve been putting off updating your website because you’re paying for a traditional, expensive long-term office lease. Or perhaps you’re spreading yourself too thin because you’re trying to save money by doing everything yourself.
You want to make your business as successful as possible. It is vitally important to ensure that you are being as productive as possible. This is difficult to do working from home or a coffee shop because those places are inherently distracting. Shared office spaces allow you to separate work from personal, and in turn focus on being productive while you’re at the office. The ambitious professionals that use these spaces will also encourage you to be productive. These people can also be an invaluable resource as you encounter problems outside of your area of expertise, and some may even end up as a client or business partner. And because these spaces are cheaper than a traditional office, you’ll have more cash to invest in your growing business. It’s hard to see how your home office could be a better option than shared office space.
