Let’s face it, in this day and age, who isn’t?
It really would be great to know what is round the corner, to know where your business will be next year, in three years or five.
A major part of any recession is confidence: not just about the here and now, but also in the future. Confidence means being able to commit to your business, investing in your future and making decisions that will last beyond tomorrow.
And what we are experiencing now, four years after it started, is still recession, in all but name. Don’t get me wrong, I firmly believe we are over the worst and there seems a good chance that many businesses will grow again this year – my own and several of our clients included.
However, what no business needs in this climate is to commit to anything long term. What you need is flexibility, adaptability and cost control. This is available for many parts of your business: cloud for telecoms and software; online media for many aspects of marketing; and outsourcing for functions like HR, accounting, etc.
What some may be less aware of is that these features can be true for your office space.
Your Bristol office
If you thought office space out of the question, then a serviced office in Bristol may be the answer: a work-ready office; flexible terms (daily, monthly, annually); change to meet the needs of your business at short notice (whether to grow or contract); controllable monthly costs made affordable because they are shared with other small businesses.
Of course, you are not even restricted to dedicated office space. You might find a shared office suits you, at least to begin with. You even have options for virtual office services. The important point is that you wont incur large ingoing or exit costs, you can pick the services you need to suit your business and you need not commit to any tenure longer than you are comfortable with.
In addition, most business centres will provide support services and resources that could help your business: recommended suppliers; arranged discounts; free consultations; free business resources for information and advice; network events; training and more.
If you are looking for a base for your business, but do not want to over-commit your business in this difficult climate, then a serviced office could be just what you need.
