A recent article, Why You Should Think Twice Before Getting Office Space by Jyoti Agrawal says that for some entrepreneurs working without an office space is unreasonable. Some may feel they’re not really running a business if they have no physical office. However, there are many alternatives to office space.
If you’re on the verge of renting office space, here are reasons you may reconsider such plans.
1. The costs can strain your budget.
You need to know that there are several kinds of offices, from fully furnished offices for rent to office where you’ll buy your own furniture and pay for other utilities. So whatever you choose, renting an office can already be too costly for you. The money can be better used to solve other problems in your business.
2. There are other options.
If you’re already working from home and considering getting office space, there are other alternatives you’ve probably not considered. Coworking spaces are affordable and you pay monthly membership fees to use them and they can eliminate the need for a traditional office. You may get access to a meeting space too if you’re building your startup and need to meet regularly with your staff.
3. You’re in debt.
A physical office is definitely an unnecessary expense if you’re in debt. Your priority should be on paying off your debt.
4. Remote work is also trending.
Remote work reduces operating costs and gives you access to talents from all over the world, talents you wouldn’t get otherwise, and sometimes at lower rates.
5. Outsourcing is an option.
Like remote work, there are many benefits of outsourcing like saving on office space, greater efficiency, access to talents and lower overhead costs.
The alternatives discussed above will help you avoid renting an office at least for a while or maybe until you’re more profitable.
