Your Office and Personal Productivity

Filed under Office Space & Virtual Offices, Small Business, Venture Capital and Start Ups on October 5, 2011

A fellow came through to tour our facility last week. I was showing him an office and trying to get a read on where he wanted to be on price for his office. To make sure he had a feel for all the options available to him, I suggested we look at an interior office. He stopped me and said he wasn’t concerned about the cost of the office, he knew he’d make it up in personal productivity. At the last minute I decided not to drop to my knees and thank him for understanding the benefits of an office, but it was a refreshing departure from the norm.

As great as a home office sounds, there are just too many distractions. Spouses, children, pets, doorbells, kitchens, phones and countless other distractions take their toll on personal productivity. Think about it, if you get one additional hour of productivity a day, for most small business owners, professionals and entrepreneurs, that’s 10% or less improvement. That one-hour per day adds up to 20 hours per month and using a round, but high figure of $1,000 per month for a fully serviced office, that’s $50 per hour saved. If you don’t see your time being worth $50 per hour you probably don’t belong in a business center environment. You probably don’t belong in business.

If you don’t have an office or a virtual office, you need to take a tour of Meadow Creek Business Center. We’re running a great special through the month of October. Contact us for details. There aren’t that many offices available so don’t put it off.
We look forward to seeing you soon. Contact us and let us know when you would like to come in.
