Remember the day you opened your coworking space? For a long time, you had been missing the perfect place to work from. You tried cafes, but they were too noisy, with too little electricity outlets and the wifi wasn’t stable. You tried working from home, but when you realized you hadn’t left the house for the 3rd day in a row, you knew you needed something better. So now the challenge is to grow your coworking space.
So there you were, your own space, together with a couple of people from your network who faced the same problems. You convinced them to sign up, and in addition to your normal work, you were now a Coworking Space owner… and a Community Manager! Because you realized, this wasn’t about renting desks; you were part of a movement. While at the same time fulfilling your own needs.
And you were good. Really good. So good, that the space is taking up all of your time. You’re an Excel wizard, you write invoices faster than anyone else could and the rest of your time goes out to marketing, because that meeting room could be utilized more often and actually, those desks on the right are often empty. Your main tasks aren’t what they used to be anymore; you’ve grown too big for your own good. What you dreamt about to grow coworking space is happening. But maybe not with so much ease. But hey, it’s all part of the game if you want to be successful, right?
But how much more successful would your space be, if all those administrative tasks were organized more efficiently, invoices would be automatically send without you having to worry about it, and people looking for a space would know where to find you? You could go back to doing what you like best: focussing on the community that you have created and helping everyone to grow.
