Outgrowing your home business?

Has your home business outgrown your home?

Working from home and running your own business are two great dreams for many people, and in the 21st century there are more entrepreneurs than ever running their own businesses from home, thanks to digital and technological advances.

But if your business does well it will grow, and it can be easy to wonder at what point your “home business” has begun to outgrow your home! You are in a better position than anyone else to make judgements about your own business, but here are a few indicators that you might want to think about making a change:

1. You are struggling to separate your time spent working from your time spent relaxing and doing other “home” things. Without a physical separation between the two, it can be easy for your work to creep into all aspects of your life!

2. Your files are all over your home. This can make it even harder to relax at the end of the day, and it means files can get lost more easily in the clutter.

3. You find yourself needing to hold meetings with clients and collaborators. A home office does not necessarily give the best first impression, which we all know is vital when trying to impress new business connections.

4. You are looking at hiring one or more people to help manage your workload. If your business is growing beyond yourself, it might be a sign that it’s growing beyond your home. Employees will feel more comfortable working in a professional environment, and, like new clients, you want to impress potential workers and appear organised and professional.

5. Your progress has started to slow. Keeping your business home-sized might be constraining your growth, and the mind set of working from home might be psychologically hindering the direction you take your business.

If any of this sounds familiar, perhaps you ought to consider doing something to improve your business space and set-up.

One option is to look at renting office space, perhaps in a building with shared office space where you will be able to share a receptionist and make contacts with the other businesspeople running their businesses from the same building.

A cheaper alternative could be to rent some storage space. This can help you declutter your home office space, even possibly clearing out a room in your home to use for meeting with clients, or to set up a little office room with space for yourself and an employee. Or it could help you keep track of your papers and documents, in a secure and dedicated space where they won’t get misplaced or damaged.

These are just a few suggestions for taking the first tentative, exciting steps from your home-business to the next stage of running your own business!

Secure Storage Solutions

Clean, safe and secure storage solution at an affordable price, highly recommend this place, very close to the heart of manchester, easy access in and out. Big thanks to Tricia and her team for sorting out my storage needs, very knowledgeable, professional and more importantly friendly.
Highly recommended.

A Quick and Easy Process

Quick and easy to reserve and simple sign up process when I arrived. I had under estimated my load size and needed more space which the guys on site quickly arranged for me. Very helpful and friendly staff. A recommended company

Same Day Move In

Fantastic experience. Needed storage quickly and the staff were on hand to help get everything sorted as fast as possible – was in the same day. They even helped to make sure I got the right size unit so I didn’t over pay – they could have sold me a far bigger one but wanted to make sure I got the best deal and was happy – that doesn’t happen very often! Well Done!

Extremely Helpful Staff

Extremely helpful staff, talked me through everything, gave me a tour of the facility, the sign up process was very straight forward, and most important excellent value for money.

Trolleys and Good Lighting

Great storage with lots of trolleys and good lighting. Lots of parking bays so it is easy to park close to the storage unit entrance. A friendly and helpful team (Anthony and Nick) that get back to you quickly by email or phone.

100% Recommended

100% recommend Storage World. The storage lockers are well priced, secure and very clean. The facility is well set up to make loading and unloading very straight forward. Jeni on the desk was so increddibly helpful and went out of her way to make sure we were well set up and happy. Thanks very much to all at Storage World and particularly Jeni!

Business Self Storage

Can’t praise the guys enough, Tricia initially found me a unit over year ago and patiently kept me up to date on availability as I was unable to move my business as quickly as I’d hoped. All the staff are friendly and helpful. A safe and clean place to work.
