With the proliferation of home-based businesses in the United States, one topic which was bound to come up in studies was the disadvantages of running a home-based business. In other words, what do home-based business owners find to be hard about running a business from home?
The top answer about home offices
Other than space issues with a home office space, most home-based business owners will say that isolation is the biggest problem they face, especially for those who continue with that type of enterprise for a couple of years. It is hard to work alone in a home office space for a prolonged period of time. The walls begin to close in, and creativity eventually dries up and ideas come to a halt. As wonderful as it is to be saving money with a home office suite, it is also stifling. We are social creatures and we occasionally, at least, need human contact during the work week.
The advantages of shared office space
Besides saving money by sharing an office space, the greatest advantage is having someone to talk to and to share ideas with. Creativity flourishes when in a cooperative atmosphere. There for sure is a scientific and medical explanation for this phenomenon; all we know is that it happens. Thus coworking spaces came into being in most major cities.
Coworking can mean sharing an actual office suite with someone else, or working in a building when there are individual offices but a common break room where collaboration can happen. These coworking spaces are almost always rented in short time segments, either by the week or by the day, thus keeping the cost down while still providing the opportunity for a business owner to run shoulders with other business owners.
And what happens in those situations is rather remarkable!
Those who have used shared office space say they are more refreshed. They say their creativity has returned, and they say their feeling of isolation has disappeared. They return to their home office feeling new and energized, and when they need to re-charge their creative batteries again, they simply return to the coworking space for a month. They are not burdened by ongoing rental expenses. They simply pay for an executive office when they need it and when they don’t need it, the rental expense ends.
