The Best Place to Work as an Entrepreneur (FS301)
Where should you work? What are the options when it comes to choosing a workspace? What are the most important things to consider when finding your space?
As entrepreneurs we have the option of choosing our workspace. It is one of the blessings afforded this lifestyle, but can also have a huge impact on the success and failure of your projects.
In this episode, we break down the subject and try our best to unpack the issue in a way that helps you get some more clarity on the location for the magic to happen. This workspace might evolve and grow as you do, so we also want to give you the tools and ideas that aid this process.
We also talk about the three main avenues for spaces where you can work, these being home, an office and public spaces like cafes. We each give our personal experience with these places and share some pros and cons for you listening pleasure!
For all of this and much more, be sure to join us on the show today!
