Setting up your own business can be both an exciting and stressful experience. There are a million and one things that need your attention. At the top of any budding entrepreneur’s list of Things To Do is finding an office. Many Single Operator Home Offices (SOHOs) work out of the family home. Whilst this has many advantages, especially for working mums and those without a lot of spare capital, working from home also poses its fair share of problems, not least of which it’s not always ideal to be hosting client meetings with little Johnny running around screaming for attention. Getting to meetings is also often a problem especially if you don’t live conveniently close to the CBD.
So here’s the quandary. The nature of your business may mean that it’s not practical to work out of your home. But with your business just starting out, you don’t want to be lumbered with heavy rental overheads including the essential peripherals like printers, telephone and fax lines, desks and receptionist. Yet, these are essential if you want to create the right impression. So, what’s the solution ?
Serviced offices are the concept du jour amongst savvy entrepreneurs. These offices offer a one-stop solution to most (not all !) of your start-up problems. Typically, serviced offices provides multiple telephone and fax lines, tastefully furnished offices, internet access complete with a customer support team. For a free, you have access to all this facilities that you are share with other businesses. There is no lease to sign up. You use the serviced offices for as long as you need to. It’s exactly like going to a gym – all the state of the art equipment is there at your disposal that you can use but without the burden of ownership or constant upgrading.
