So you’ve done it: you started your own business. You’ve taken the leap. The next steps can be as exciting as they are terrifying but now that your organization has taken off, it and you will need to adapt on the fly. The name of the game is efficiency and that means spending money on the things you need and saving on the things you don’t. Young companies, in their eagerness to get to work, too often fall into traditional models of doing business which can trap capital, stifle growth and leave employees ill-equipped to do their job.
Sitting in the same office space all day, ever day, can make it abundantly clear why finding an environment that strikes a balance between productivity and comfort is crucial to the health of your employees and your business. As employees feel more obligated to be “plugged in” and “contactable” outside of the normal 9-5 routine, it is also critical for a business to find meaningful ways to promote the physical and mental health of its employees outside of the office as well. Shared office spaces and the ever-growing number of amenities they can provide are one solution that can keep your company happy and healthy without sacrificing efficiency.
More than eighty percent of Americans are sitting at least 8 hours per day, and this pattern is taking a monumental health toll on our bodies. Your office components- the furniture, the color, and even the lighting - each make a difference and leave an impact on your short term, and long term mental and physical wellness. But it’s not all bad news, and with some simple steps, you can make your office a healthier place to work. Here are 3 ways you can take a stand (sometimes literally) against the harms of sedentary working:
For early-stage companies reliant on outside funding, the massive up-front costs of acquiring your own office space can prove a seemingly unsustainable burden. When trying to exercise as much financial prudence as possible, the last thing you want to do is take on a long-term liability, but with a traditional lease, you’re left with little choice. Your company has to work somewhere, but how can you manage cash flows appropriately while still getting the environment you need? Shared office space can prove the perfect solution for startups, keeping costs low over time, and even lower up front.
The adage “location, location, location” may be overdone, but deciding where to work is as much about personality and feel as it is nuts and bolts. All of our centers offer amazing professional space and services in high quality locations, but there are still a few things that set each of them apart. Below we highlight each of our centers and outline their benefits beyond the space itself:
Considering how much time you spend in the office each week, you deserve an aesthetically appealing space that inspires productivity, efficiency, and even peace of mind.

One of the primary objectives of any small business is to grow and expand in a way that supports both your employees and clients alike.
