Three Reasons You Need to Ditch Your Home Office Space
Rolling out of bed and into your home office is a freedom that many people never have. As the saying goes, “with great freedom comes great responsibility”. The responsibility to motivate yourself and get work done is squarely on you. While you may enjoy this freedom greatly, it may not be helping you succeed in business. If you find yourself on a plateau, consider these reasons to ditch the home office space and get back to growing your business.
1. You Aren’t Productive
The fridge, the kids, the television, the laundry, the dirty floor. These are just a few of the distractions you encounter when you work from home. It takes a Herculean effort to ignore everything and truly get some work done at the home office. Sure, you can set up a room as your office but working from home blurs the line between work and home life. When are you supposed to work and when are you supposed to relax? Choose a shared office space from a company like Office Evolution to establish a more concrete line between work and home.
2. It’s Unprofessional
If you’re receiving business correspondence at your home address, clients may infer that you don't care enough about your own business to project a professional image. Consider using virtual office services or signing up for a private office at a shared office space. Virtual office services provide things like professional Google Maps addresses. Telephone answering, screening, transferring, and voicemail are also available. Given that you must continue working from home, these can be powerful tools to increase your company image. Private and shared office spaces give you the tools of a traditional office with much greater flexibility. As an added bonus, you’ll also gain access to meeting rooms which are perfect for client meetings and presentations.
3. Social Isolation is Bad
You may have a significant other or kids, but those relationships are different than those you have with co-workers and other peers. It’s important to maintain relationships outside of the family. Shared office spaces are populated with other professionals that are building their own businesses. Connecting with other people in similar situations will give you more than the professional social connection you desire; it may help you find a freelancer to write your website copy, a designer to do a rebrand of your logo, a business partner, a new client, and many other networking opportunities.
It’s possible to crush it working from a home office. However, it can be more difficult. Lack of productivity, professionalism, and social interaction are just a few of the factors that could be holding you back as you work from a home office. It may be time to step your game up and take advantage of resources like virtual office services, shared office spaces, and private offices.
