More and more people have become fed up with the typical workaday life of waking up by 5:30 a.m. to get out of the house by 7:00, to try and beat rush hour traffic and get to their 9:00 to 5:00 job by 9:00, all the while being unhappy with what they are doing and/or how their bosses run their business. There are a few choices in this scenario: 1) Suck it up; 2) Find another job; or 3) Start your own small business. Surprisingly, many people are opting for the latter. Starting a small business takes a lot of courage and carries a lot of risk, but that does not mean it cannot succeed.
If you have a successful small business, you may or may not have an office space or even more than a handful of employees, but you are making it. You run the business out of a home office which has steadily been getting more and more crowded. And if you’re business involves products, you’re garage (or even the rest of your house) is probably getting very full.
Once you start having difficulty moving around in your own office, or business related items start expanding into other areas of the house, it may be time to come to another arrangement.
A new arrangement does not necessarily have to be expensive, however. You don’t have to go find the biggest office space in the tallest building to set up your new base of operations. All it takes is a self-storage unit. Freeing up your home office, and the rest of your house, by keeping all product inventory and/or business records in a self-storage unit can help your business stay efficient for an affordable price every month.
