How you operate your business is open to many options and having ‘freedom and choice’ will affect how much you enjoy what you do.
If it’s flexibility you’re looking for, coworking opportunities in dedicated workspaces for start-up and growing businesses will let you choose how your business will best fit in with your life.
Operating your own business from a coworking space gives you the freedom to decide when and where you want to work, offering an alternative to working at your kitchen table and all the distractions the home environment can bring. You can fit your business needs with your lifestyle and family life, allowing you to find the perfect work-life balance.
Desks in dedicated workspace centres bring together like-minded entrepreneurs, forming a natural network of businesses which you can choose to be a part of, supporting each other with new ideas, services, and friendship.
There can be other benefits to taking on a coworking tenancy too. Many business owners tend to forget that their business is built upon their own knowledge and skills. Therefore, it is logical to conclude that by improving, building upon, and expanding the skills, expertise, and ability of the business owner, the business itself will improve, expand, and have a stronger foundation upon which to grow.

By accessing professional business support, you, as a small to medium business owner, can develop your business understanding and expertise.
Talking about Larry Page, Steve Jobs and himself in his book ‘The Virgin Way’, Richard Branson writes “We’ve all received guidance from mentors.”
“Yes, even the famously individually-minded Apple Founder got by with a little help, advice and support from time to time. No matter who you are, where you’ve come from, or what you have achieved, a good mentor is an invaluable asset in business…”
Business support services include 1-to-1 mentoring, financial advice, business planning, grant applications, training, networking and events, as well as the best office space solutions for you and your business. A local business advisor will have specific knowledge of business sectors and needs within the immediate community and will be an invaluable asset to any start-up or growing business.
So, if you have decided that you and your business will benefit from a different workspace solution and business support, now is the perfect time to look at the services that are out there.
