I work from home. I love the idea of never having to worry about getting up at 6am so I can be at the office by 8am. I can dress as relaxed as I like and I enjoy the fact that I can slip out down to the beach whenever I want to. It’s a fantastic feeling.
But over the last 6 months I have also realised that my business has reached a ceiling. Now I can either stay where I am and enjoy my little comfort zone, or make a decision and move into proper offices. Currently I have two staff which work for me, which means I need to be up and about (and dressed) and the house needs to be cleaned before they get here at 8am. So I’m up early anyway.
The problem is that the house just has too many distractions for us … too many opportunities to go check out the TV, or run to the beach, or pop down to a coffee shop and no matter how disciplined we try to be, it doesn’t work out.
So, I have decided that within the next 90 days I need to find offices for the company to move into – it’s not going to be too fancy, but I do want to give the team a better, more productive, working environment.
So what are your thoughts? Any suggestions?
