(Comic) Dwelling on your Dwelling: Finding a Startup Office

From the comic www.entrepreneurfail.com

 

Is your filing cabinet under your bed?

In New York City or any large metropolis worldwide, you’ll find entrepreneurs who have made a home office a reality. The city provides an alluring location, but the dollar per square foot is obscene. This is why many budding entrepreneurs choose to start in a home office. And in working from home, the magical line between the bed and the desk soon disappears.

Some of the challenges we have faced working in a home office include:

  1. Lack of camaraderie and employee banter
  2. Difficult to be presentable for last minute meetings
  3. No space to have office meetings
  4. Cabin fever strikes all the time

You can use your flexibility to your advantage if you don’t have a traditional office, though. Just remember, cubicle-dwellers across the world would gladly trade their cage to have your 15-second commute.  It just unfortunate that productivity can wane when your workspace is lonely and cluttered, which is a definite #entrepreneurfail.  To escape the monotony of your home office, you can go to coworking spaces and coffee shops. Sharedesk is a resource to find temporary desk space and on-demand office mates. Here is a list of places with free wifi that may help you in your quest. Alternatively, you can be your own wifi provider, and carry a hotspot. We’ve also used libraries, parks, hotel lobbies and other public spaces to set up shop for the day.

Good luck finding a cordoned-off spot to optimize your output. And now, back to work!
