As the year draws to a close and a new one starts, it’s time to reflect on our key learnings and consider how we move ahead. If you’ve had a ‘ho hum’ year, then maybe it’s time to make a change and shake up where and how you work to bring in some fresh energy and inspiration. Here are some tips to help guide you:
- Stuck in a rut – as human beings, it’s natural to gravitate towards our comfort zone. If you work from home, you may know what I’m talking about here. It’s nice isn’t it, to turn off the alarm and roll over for another hour, or clean out the kitchen cupboards. While staying in your PJ’s all day, tapping away on your keyboard may feel cosy and safe – is it getting you and your business where you need to go?Why not make this year the year when you own up to yourself, come clean and decide to get dressed and get out of the door on time. Some people are just not meant to work at home alone. If you’re one of them, you know who you are! You can have dedicated office space at your disposal with Anytime Offices from just $90 per month, so what are you waiting for? Get dressed and we’ll have the coffee ready when you get here and you can make 2019 the year when you kick some goals and kick your comfort zone into touch!
- Status quo – if you’re a start-up or have been working home alone for some time, it’s easy to ‘put up and shut up’ about the little irks and quirks that come with your set-up. You’re keen to impress a new client but you arrange to meet in a coffee shop because, well, that’s what you’ve always done and anyway it’s just easier than heading off into the city (time and money, right?) The Internet connection that’s hit and miss because you signed up with a dinosaur domestic provider and it’s too hard to change. You know the deal. With unlimited fibre optic Internet connection, state-of-the-art meeting rooms, reception support and free refreshments on tap, when you step through the door of Anytime Offices, you will be transported to a new world where you can get things done quickly, easily and with a polished, professional approach. From as little as $100 per week, you can have a part-time office, bring clients over for meetings and presentations and elevate your business to a whole new level.
- Jack of all trades – from making the coffee, posting the mail and buying the milk, as a small business owner, you often find yourself doing so many of the small things, half the day can be gone before you get to work on the important stuff. Why not make the plunge and opt for a fully serviced office set-up where all you have to do, is turn the key, plug and play. Coffee on tap, filtered water and fruit basket at your fingers, office cleaned daily, electricity taken care of, meeting rooms available to book and mail posted. Imagine how many hours you would save in a day, a week, a month – hours that be invested into your business growth. At Anytime Offices, we take care of the little things, so you can focus on growing your bottom line.
- Team time – if you employ freelancers or contractors and you’re tired of them dropping out to look for a more traditional office set-up where they have the chance to contribute to company culture and meet other people, then maybe it’s time to take stock and consider your options. Constantly re-hiring can be a drain on resources and if you have taken the time to train staff and they’re delivering for you, maybe it’s time to make the move to an office arrangement.With Anytime Offices, you can have a co-working space or book an office once or twice a week or on a full time basis – whatever works for you and your business. Having team time and connecting and sharing amenities with other like-minded professionals can motivate and stimulate your freelance staff and help your business move forward. It’s also great for networking – you never know who you might meet – so many fantastic collaborations have begun at Anytime Offices just over a chat over the coffee machine or a conversation in the lift!
Wherever and however you work, we wish you the courage and inspiration to continue to grow your business opportunities in 2019.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
