There comes a time when a home office won’t cut it anymore and if your business is headed in the right direction, you’ll likely begin needing more space and less distractions.Interruptions and distractions It may have been appealing to wander down the hall from your bedroom and sit at your desk when your business was in the very early stages, but often working at home can become rife with interruptions and distractions. Even business owners with the best intentions can be pulled away from important tasks by children or partners who demand their attention, especially if family members are at home between usual working hours. If you’re missing deadlines, important calls or neglecting clients as a result of interruptions, this will be affecting your bottom line – it’s time to find some space away from disturbances.

Platforms like Twitter and LinkedIn can grow your brand and your following exponentially.
