Signs that it’s time to move out of your home office

If you have been operating out of your home office for a long time, you face unique challenges every day and have probably gotten used to them. But there comes a time in the life of every small business owner when it becomes apparent that it’s time to make a move.

If you’re still not seeing it, here are some clear signs that you should be thinking about moving out of your home office:

 

1. Your productivity is suffering

If you are experiencing income stagnation or an inability to take on new clients, this might be a sign that it’s time to move your office out of the home. There’s nothing like having your kids fighting over the last pop tart while you’re trying to have an important meeting. Or maybe you live alone – and it shows.

Moving out of your home office will solve many of those problems. You won’t have to schedule your work around everybody else’s needs, and you won’t have to worry about cleaning up before your business meeting. A professional office will give you the distraction-free environment you need to get down to business.

 

2. You need to hire employees

If your business is growing and you need to hire more employees, where are you going to put them? It may not be practical—or comfortable—to have them work at your home. Plus, think about what the interview process would be like. Would your candidate take you seriously? How would they feel about working in your personal space? The perception might be that you can’t afford an office and therefore the job suddenly doesn’t seem so attractive. Having an office space of your own will give you the professional image you need to attract quality talent.

 

3. You are running out of room

If your personal life and your professional life are encroaching on each other, it’s a clear sign that something’s got to give. If you have no more room for file cabinets, computers, and so on, if your living room is starting to look like an episode of hoarders, it’s time to make a move.

A professional office space gives you room to breathe – not only that, it can be scaled to your needs, so if you run out of room, need another desk, or have to bring in new employees, you can make it happen right away.

 

Simply put, moving out of your home office might be the best decision you’ve ever made. It will give you access to affordable, flexible office space and all the amenities of a corporate suite without the expense of a traditional lease.
