Like many start-up entrepreneurs, I had my fair share of teething problems when starting my business. I converted a section of my home into a reasonable size office space and as the business grew another room was incorporated. This area was used for meetings and consulting clients. I considered it a worthwhile investment at the time as I was saving considerably on overheads and the hiring of office space.
We all know that paying monthly rental is not only a major headache for startups it also often leads to the eventual closure of the business if progress is too slow.Although the growth was steadily increasing, I became unhappy with the office location and felt that the business would get a much bigger boost if meetings could be held in one of those boardrooms that oozed prestige, success and achievement instead of in my dingy room.
During one afternoon, while having lunch with a friend, this topic of discussion came up. He suggested renting a serviced office space that took care all of my needs at a highly affordable rate. As the words spilled from his mouth I envisaged the bright sliver lining on my dark cloud and all the profitable possibilities that could flow from it.
It took about a week to secure the ideal company. Their resources are simply magnificent and I feel like the high flyer but without having to bear those exorbitant costs. Since renting the serviced office space I could actually get in some much needed gym time as a highly skilled and professional receptionist takes care of all the calls and appointments. This level of competency certainly jacked up my establishment. She is shared with other small timers as myself and so is the magnificent boardroom. The latter is equipped with the latest technical gadgetry. The small guy can certainly swim with the big fish at the the fraction of the cost if you know how.
