If you’ve launched your business from your garage you’re in good company – so did some of the world’s biggest businesses. Eventually, though, the time came for them to move to an office. The same thing will probably happen to you.
Amazon. Google. Microsoft. They’ve all got something in common (aside from being phenomenally successful). They all began life in a garage. Jeff Bezos is now putting his gazillions into space exploration. Bill Gates is helping to vaccinate the world. Yet they started out programming computers in glorified sheds. Jeff Bezos is on record as saying that one of the reasons he felt he had to move out was because the amount of power he needed in the garage meant the circuit breakers kept tripping.
For many startup businesses, the garage makes sense. It keeps your costs down at a time when money is tight. The commute to work is pretty short, and if you’re balancing the business with home commitments, it can be the obvious solution.
If your business is going to grow, though, there comes a point where it (and you) will probably need to escape the garage. When should that be? In this post we’ll explore the factors that may influence your move.
