There are advantages to working out of a home office. There is little or no additional overhead when your business is run out of a garage or spare bedroom. No dealing with a long commute, property managers, or long-term leases. A home office can be a great place to start, but it’s not a great place to grow and build business.
Improve First Impressions
People want to know that anyone they are doing business with is someone who is on stable ground financially. Whether your business is well established or not, meeting in a home office can send a completely different message than meeting in a well-furnished commercial office. Anyone seriously looking to build business knows that the first impression of a potential client is crucial. Secure a space that sends the right message to anyone who visits.
Better Location, Better Network
You may see an office space in a prestigious location as frivolous, but the truth is that the location of your office can be a powerful tool for your business. If you find the right space, a flexible office in a business center can actually be very affordable as well. An office located in a respected commercial area (like many business centers are) can help strengthen your network and build business contacts who can be very beneficial to your goals. Surrounding yourself with like-minded entrepreneurs will help you grow your business to its full potential, in many ways that a home office environment cannot.
