As a start-up owner you know that the level of professionalism you project is important and can often secure you a contract or a recommendation. Professionalism however isn’t about donning a suit or about your qualifications, it’s about how you present yourself, the environment in which you are operating and the impression you make.
Co-working spaces have given many start-ups the credibility they need and earned them respect in their industry. Here are 3 of the top reasons why co-working will help you become a better independent professional:
ADDRESS TO IMPRESS
One of the biggest benefits of co-working is that it gives your start-up a reputable address. When opening a business, organising deliveries or creating a corporate profile you’ll want to sound like you are already well-established. Having an address in a respected business area, or at least one that isn’t obviously your home or apartment will always create a good impression.
MEET AND GREET
One of the biggest perks of co-working is that you’ll have a professional space where you can meet clients and entertain them in an environment that’s designed for this purpose. There’s no need to rely on coffee shops and hope that there’s reliable Wi-Fi or a quiet spot to chat, you’ll have all the conference facilities you need available within your co-working space. A professional environment will reflect well on you and your business, and give you the edge over those that are operating from home.
STAYING IN TOUCH
When you work from home, you run the risk of becoming isolated and not staying up to date with important new developments. Co-working means that you are always in-touch with what is going on in your industry and gives you the necessary skills to take on competitors with confidence. By interacting with others on a daily basis you’ll boost your professional profile and the collective brain power and input from co-workers will assist you in making informed decisions that will see your business grow.
