OK, I’ll admit it – the headline is a bit of an attention grabber. Of course there are many perfectly valid reasons for renting an office, and often it’s the only way that you can run your business sensibly, and I wouldn’t seriously suggest otherwise. It might even be necessary to work nine to five (if you run your own business part-time!)
However, there are times when it can be a good idea to sit back, take stock and work out whether your business has changed, and whether you can realistically turn it into a virtual operation. With today’s cloud technologies it’s easier than ever to close that office door and work collaboratively with people in a wide range of locations.
