This is to those of you that have taken that step and are renting or purchased a office/shop location separate from your home. Has it paid off? Was it worth the investment? Has your customer base increased as a direct result of having the office/shop location? Has it saved you money in other areas? Let's see if I have any other questions..Is theft a problem? That's about it for now, but more will probably come up. I've been in business almost 20 years and I've always just used my home as my base of operations. I have my equipment here, I work on everything here, and I have my office in my home but I also own a separate commercial bldg. that could be turned into a pretty nice office/shop. The office space is already there but I would have to build a small storage/shop area and would have to fence the lot in. I'm just wondering if it would be worth it. I'll be honest, my biggest concern is people breaking in and stealing or vandalizing my equipment. Thanks for your response..
