Your own privacy combined with all the perks of a collaborative community
Marbella is a dynamic business hub and as the workplace concept evolves, more flexibility means even more opportunities for entrepreneurs. According to recent statistics from EurWork, 18.3% of Spain’s workforce is self-employed and over 60% of those are solopreneurs. 70 people per day are registering themselves as autónomo (freelance) – a figure that’s on the up says the Spanish government.
Sold? Whilst there’s plenty of good reasons for going it alone, self-employment has its own challenges to consider. Stress, isolation, and financial pressures are some of the issues weighing entrepreneurs down, but going for a serviced office within a coworking community can benefit both your business and your wellbeing.
Simple Set Up
Setting up an office can be a real headache but with a serviced option everything is done for you. There’s no hassle installing phone lines, moving furniture or integrating the IT, you can walk into a fully furnished space where all the infrastructure is in place. Facilities at Our Space Marbella include a communal kitchen, private underground parking, 24/7 fingerprint access, mail handling, security, and a concierge service at reception to welcome guests. And when the pressure is on, you can vent out loud in the Tantrum Room or retreat to the Zen Room, complete with sound wave therapy beds.
Personal Space in Sociable Surroundings
Do your employees focus better in a dedicated environment, or are you a solopreneur who likes their own space? The beauty of renting a private office within a collaborative setting means you get all the solitude you need, along with the opportunity to connect with other members when you choose. Socialising with likeminded people can have a massive impact on motivation levels and coworking is proven to reduce feelings of isolation. Plus you’ll have access to an inspiring community of individuals choosing to do business in Marbella, who are willing to offer their support.
Networking is vital for success, but the daily demands of running a business can make it difficult to walk away from your desk. That’s why a coworking office is an excellent place to make new contacts. The other early birds in the kitchen may know just the right client for you, or maybe you can join forces and expand each other’s business offering. In Deskmag’s 2017 Coworking Survey, 71% of respondents had collaborated in the last twelve months and with a variety of communal spaces, as well as organised events and activities, opportunities to interact are all around you.
Grow at Your Own Pace
Taking on a long-term lease is a big financial commitment. You don’t need the pressure of paying for a large office during a downturn and, on the flip side, it can be hard to decide how much space you’ll need if expansion is on the cards. Our Space Marbella offers private office contracts on a monthly basis, giving you more flexibility to assess your needs as things develop. And because serviced offices are all-inclusive, it’s easier to manage your outgoings as you won’t be paying separate bills to individual service providers.
Thankfully, a day at the office needn’t mean sitting in a soulless spot from 9 to 5.
Coworking is driving the conversation about how our surroundings influence productivity and wellbeing. Findings from Officevibe show that 60% of coworkers they are more relaxed at home and 70% feel healthier. What’s more, only 30% prefer to work during normal business hours. At Our Space, which is situated on the prestigious Golden Mile, we believe in connecting humans with nature. Just two minutes’ walk from the beach and five minutes by car to Puerto Banus or Marbella town, you’ll find a fresh, sensory environment designed to bring out your true potential and capture everything the thriving Costa del Sol has to offer.
