While many entrepreneurs envision the time in the life of their business that they will graduate from the garage or kitchen table to a bricks and mortar location the logistics and costs of such an endeavor can sometimes also be quite overwhelming. If you’ve never priced out a space for your office in a retail center or office building the numbers can be shocking!
But that doesn’t mean you’ll never have that place of your own for your business to reside – somewhere further away from the refrigerator and the kids’ toys. There are many options available in graduating degrees that we often see people take advantage of in order to move themselves along the growth chart of their business to their very own office.
Coworking. All the cool kids are doing it. Coworking is often essentially working in an open shared space with other coworkers. Usually there are desks, bar tops, study carrels or cubicles available for you to spread out, plug in your computer and get to work.
Day Offices. Day Offices are set up and staged for entrepreneurs, remote employees and guests to use on an hourly, half-day or daily basis. It looks like your office – you can put a picture of your cat or kids on the desk while you’re working. And it is private for the time that you are working, meeting clients, or doing a much-needed planning day off-site.
Part-Time Offices. We often hear from business owners that they don’t really need an office every day. Some need it a few times a month. Some once a week. Some two days a week (Monday and Thursday for example). And some need space a couple of times a week, but not always the same days. You’ve just described a Part-Time or Flex office that can accommodate more than one business in the same space. Some spaces will include a locking file cabinet so that you can leave papers, computers, your cat’s picture, etc. locked up rather than tote it back and forth every day. And the great thing about Part-Time or Flex offices is that as your needs grow so can your usage of the space.
And once you outgrow a Part-Time Office, it is time to graduate to a Full Time Private Office. Either at an executive suites location or your very own suite or building. Talk to your local shared space provider, often they will have ideas that will fit within your needs and budget and get you started on your way out of the kitchen and into the office.
