Friday Five – Monday Edition: The Future of CoWorking and Flexible Office Space
Welcome to the Friday Five blog post! Which I am posting on Monday, because I didn’t have time to finish it Friday. 🙂 Each week I will choose one topic based on something I either heard or saw that interested me during the week and link to five articles related to that topic. I hope you find them interesting as well!
Last week, I read an article on the LiquidSpace blog about the growth of the flexible office space market and where it is headed in the next few years. Perimeter Park has offered this type of service to businesses and entrepreneurs since we opened in 1984. It has been called many things over the years – executive suites, executive office space, shared office space, workspace-on-demand, coworking – but no matter what the current terminology is, it all boils down to turn-key professional office space at an affordable price where a person can focus on their business while someone else takes care of all the other little things that go into running an office.
When you have an office at Perimeter Park, you just work. We deal with maintenance, cleaning service, Comcast (yes, we even do THAT for you), the telephone company, A/C vendors – even the mailman and delivery people. You never have to stop your business to deal with any of those things.
After working here for 15 years, I don’t know why anyone with a small business would want to – or could afford to – handle those things on their own instead of working 100% on building and growing their business.
The old saying is that “you get what you pay for”, but that isn’t true at Perimeter Park. Here you get a fully furnished office, telephone service, internet service, cleaning, utilities, break room, receptionist, waiting area, and an on-site staff. All starting at under $600 per month for a single person private office – less for coworking and virtual office options.
Here are some articles on why this type of office set-up is great for businesses. Have a look, then give us a call at 615-781-4200 to tour our office space in Nashville and see what we can do for your business.
