How To Use Virtual Co-Working To Grow & Scale Your Business
As a business owner, one of your main responsibilities is to grow and scale your company as quickly and efficiently as possible. While this may be a daunting task, there are several strategies you can employ to help you achieve success.
One is knowing exactly how you work best.
When it comes to growing a business, one of the most important things is having the right work style and supports in place. For many people with neuro-divergent conditions like ADHD or autism, a traditional office environment can be extremely challenging. However, there are many ways to create a work style that suits your needs and helps you grow your business.
When I was a business coach with set appointments working with clients, my ADHD gave me a unique challenge. When I have an appointment that day, I literally can only focus on that appointment. It’s hard for me to focus on anything else and after the appointment, I am exhausted. Being on camera is extra exhausting for me because I have to focus so much on remaining neutral. My normal fidgeting, eye movements and stims can be distracting for my clients as they are being coached. Within the Catalyst, we are usually in a virtual room and our cams are off. The audio-only aspect allows me to support members while I am laying down, moving around, fidgeting and being myself. We can hop on cams for short times if we need the connection.
This has increased my productivity by leaps and bounds. I can working with 15-20 members during the day while also keeping focused on my own work with marketing. My ADHD is “tricked” by not knowing when I’ll be needed by the members as generally people come in when they want support and either talk in the public room or we go off to a private room to work on their business. I don’t get exhausted and I can easily hop back into my own work or with another member after.
Being in the virtual workrooms has kept me more focused and on task than I have ever been in my life. I wish I had found this earlier!
When it comes to growing and scaling your business, virtual co-working and online co-working can be a valuable resource. By using these platforms, you have access to collaboration and coaching opportunities that can help you reach your goals. Additionally, online co-working can be a great way to connect with other professionals who may be able to help you take your business to the next level.
