Shared Office Space The 24-Hour Gym To Get Your Business Started

Posted in News & Events on October 31, 2013

A shared office space is like a gym that comes fully prepared for all the basics things a businessperson is going to need to get the jobtreadmill done. It is often fully furnished with desks, computers, and maybe even a printer, the only downside if the space is going to be shared with other people.

Most shared office space is from one large business that is willing to let smaller ones come in and help with some of the costs of having a building. They allow the smaller businesses to rent out a special space they can work in. It has benefits to both the tenant and the owner.

There are some things to consider before going down this route. When given the opportunity to share an office space do not jump for joy until important questions have been asked like if there is enough parking for employees and clients alike, if there will be 24-hour access to the building, and is Internet included. These are just a few of the many that should be considered. Take a pen and jot down a list of questions of what is important in your ideal office space to ask about.

Also try not to share an office space with someone that could be a potential competitor. Collaboration is great and helpful but then comes that awkward moment where ideas can no longer be shared, just in case they are stolen. It would not be much fun to talk about work in your own office.

Shared office space is a great thing. Leases can be at least three months long, not like having to rent a full one with a contract that is 10 years long. Just be sure to go over any contract with a lawyer before it is signed, and make sure there is good chemistry with the new people your office will be rooming with.
