30 Nov Why Choosing a Co-Working Space after Trying Out My Home Office Was a Great Decision
To be honest, when I first set up my home office, I was ecstatic. I had carefully planned all my work and had a foolproof business plan. My clientele list wasn’t that big but had a few spenders, who were willing to pay anything for a great service.
My home Mississauga office space was comfortable, and I had decorated it in such a manner that the room appeared more spacious. Things were going really good in the first few months because the business was steadily picking up. I had plenty of time on my hands and whenever a client’s feedback came, I would get back to them immediately.
After 6 months, the pressure started to take a toll on me. My client list had gone huge and that was a good thing, but I was no longer able to keep up with all the clients together.
So, What Went Wrong?
Here’s the thing: I got too comfortable.
When you have a home office, there are too many distractions clamoring your attention. The moment I felt that I had worked too long, which amounted to 45 minutes or 2 hours, I would get up from my seat and idly roam the house. You can imagine how many hours I lost due to that.
When I felt hungry, I would go to the kitchen and fix myself a sandwich or prepare an entire main course. The latter usually took me an hour because I am not a good culinary master.
The charm of my new office started to wear off, and now I dreaded entering the room. When I worked, I usually did it in my Pj’s, and when a client video called, I would simply put on a shirt and a tie. The bottom half is not going to be in the view, so why wear the pants, right?
Let’s just say that I got too comfortable and that was my downfall. I was not able to give my best.
So, finally, I decided to look into outdoor Mississauga offices. After much researching, I came across daily office rentals in Mississauga that were offering co-working space.
The Best Features of a Co-Working Space
There’s a common miss conception that a co-working space in Mississauga is noisy and has more distractions than you have at a home office.
The truth is that Mississauga shared offices present you with the opportunity to network with different entrepreneurs and small business owners. The amenities offered are numerous, which would cost you thousands of dollars if you wanted to buy them for your home office. To name a few: a copier, printer, projector, free coffee, access to meeting rooms, an upbeat environment and high-speed 4G LTE network. What more could one ask for?
This is why I found the co-working space in Mississauga refreshing and stimulating after being cooped up in my home office for 6 months. Plus, I got to build a reputation because many clients don’t trust people who operate a business from home.
