So, you’re growing up. You’re moving on from co-working space. Interruptions and free bananas just aren’t your focus these days. You’d rather spend time getting work done – something that can only be accomplished with a locking personal office. Many people see being highly social as a draw for twenty-somethings. But when the twenty-somethings hit their thirties and perhaps marry and start a family or just become more self-sufficient, they start turning to a quiet office space.
Office needs evolve with a small business owners’ personal life. Share and share alike may be an attitude we should all continue to have, but as we grow, accrue, and acquire everything from income, clients and workloads to pets and families, we have a need to secure and protect what we’ve worked for. We are responsible for more information that we need to hold in a locking private office.
A Locking Personal Office Provides Focus
People, our clients and loved ones, depend upon us; so of course, we want to keep our focus more on them, business, and our work. We spend so much of our lives working. What we do becomes part of who we are. So, focus also becomes critical. Many of us can only focus well in a quiet, individual office space with a door.
We spoke with Wendy Blount at GoodWork Loft Offices near Ponce City Market. GoodWork only offers a locking personal office in Virginia Highland, Atlanta to clients. They do not have any co-working memberships. “The halls are quiet,” she says. “It is just the right amount socialization and yet privacy for a lot of people. There is great parking close to the office and pets are welcome.”
GoodWork has seen offices turn into a peaceful home-away-from-home where you work. “People come to us for many reasons, but they often come to us to escape the noise and busy-ness of home.” Co-working definitely has its place, but individual private office spaces close to home and in this case, Virginia Highland are here to stay.
