The 3 Biggest Home Office Challenges and How to Solve Them

LIFT speaks Coworking Leave a Comment

The place you call “office”, your conference rooms and the meeting space you choose for your clients and teammates may say something about you.

The computer you use.  The car you drive. The meeting space and workspace you choose. The phone you use . . . they all send a message – to varying degrees – about your self-identity and what’s important to you.

It’s the same with your choice of meeting space. When you choose to meet clients at your home instead of a professional conference room, your identity and your professional brand is factored into that decision.

Are you the type of person who likes to stand out from the crowd?  If so, the place you choose to meet your clients and coworkers will reflect that.

Are you the type of person who is passionate about inspiring and helping others?   If so, you’ll choose a place that reflects that.

Are you a respected expert or industry leader?  If so, you’ll work in a place that reflects your tenure and success.
