Over the years, we have heard many work-from-home stories from folks who come through our coworking space. Many start with “I love working from home, but…” followed by a long pause. It seems everyone has something that makes working from home not work for them. For some it’s the isolation of being alone all day without enough human interaction. For others it’s being a work-at-home parent with a child who doesn’t understand that “mommy’s working right now.” And others got tired of waiting for their cat to come up with their next great business idea.
For whatever the reason, many work-from-homers need a break from time to time and that’s where we’re excited to come in and help out. Whether you need to escape the drudgery of the home office once a week or full-time, Office Nomads has some great options you can mix and match to fit into your schedule and budget. Take a look at our updated membership & pricing page, and then switch back here for an example of what we are talking about.
A real world example
So, you’ve finally got your consulting business up and running, and things are going well. You’ve got several clients, but are still looking for more. You started up out of your living room, and occasionally head out to the coffee shop when you want to shake things up. You are still excited to be your own boss and yet also feel like you’ve plateaued. While seeking something to break the stalemate you look into coworking.
You don’t need a full-time office, but dropping in a few days a month would really help revive your productivity. You decide to give things a try and sign up for a Basic membership at Office Nomads ($50/month). While chatting with Alexandra at the front desk, you learn about Biznik, a Seattle-based networking group for indies just like you. You whip up your free profile, go to a few events, and soon realize the value of upgrading to a Biznik Pro membership ($10/month). Now you are gathering clients faster than ever, and more and more people know who you are and what you’re all about. Realizing that you might want to register your consulting business someplace other than your home, you add a Business Identity Plan to your membership at Office Nomads ($35/month).
One month later, you’ve got an impressive new office to bring your clients to, a vibrant community of coworkers to collaborate with, a wider network of independent entrepreneurs to learn from, and a professional address associated with your business, all for less than $100/month.
Sounds pretty awesome, eh?
