Coworking can be the perfect working environment for many individuals. The flexibility and social aspects of coworking allow many entrepreneurs and freelancers to work in a professional environment without the cost of a private office. For some, coworking isn’t a longterm solution though and private office is necessary. Below are some clues that it may be time to migrate from coworking to a private shared office.
This one may seem obvious, but may not always be. If you find that you’re storing a lot of your work materials in random places at your home, it may be time for your own office space. If you find that you’re hauling a lot of stuff back and forth from home to your coworking space, it is probably time for a private office.
You may want to consider a private office if you find that you have more client phone calls and it’s difficult to talk in an open coworking space. Even if your coworking space has phone booths (like Assemble), they can be used by other members at times. It can be annoying to other members of your coworking space if you’re talking on the phone while they’re working all the time. And it can come off as unprofessional to your client if there is a lot of background noise while you’re trying to have an important conversation.
A private office allows you to simply close your door and talk to clients as often as necessary.
Once your company becomes more than just you, it can be difficult to work as a team in an open coworking space. Having a private office in a shared space like Assemble allows you to collaborate privately, while still giving you opportunities to network with other members.
Concentrating and being productive in an open coworking space can be challenging at times. Even in the best coworking spaces, distractions are common. If you find that you’re not able to complete everything you need to in a day, it might be time for a private office. With a private office at Assemble, you’re able to decorate your office as you wish. You can create the perfect environment for you to be as productive as possible every day.
