Have you ever had one of those ideas that seems like it could be really great, but it’s a bit risky? One of those ideas where you’re not sure if you should give it a crack or just let it pass?
We’ve been talking, for a long while actually, about whether a move to a co-working space might be good for us. We can think of lots of reasons why it might be: a fun and fresh new creative environment; being surrounded by people who are in different fields, who will have different ideas to share; lots more flexibility for the business since we can add or drop desk space as needed.
But then, we always catch ourselves. What if the new space is too noisy? What if we don’t like the location? What if we hate sharing a printer or the meeting room is always booked?
It all felt like too much of a gamble, until we realised it didn’t have to be. We don’t have to give up the space we’re in to try out something new.
So, we’ve decided to start a trial of a new space at Parramatta from mid-March. You’ve probably noticed that Parramatta itself has been on the move lately – it’s become a really thriving business hub with lots of exciting development, so it feels like a good place for us to be.
And if it doesn’t work out, well, our existing offices will be right here waiting for us. And either way we’ve learned a good lesson about trying new ways without abandoning the old.
We’ll keep you posted on how it goes, and in the meantime, here are some details you might need:
Where we’re going
Check out groundedspace.com.au to see our new digs at Parramatta Westfield. It’s right opposite the station and surrounded by cafes (including one that’s part of our office space. Score!) so there’s plenty of places for a catch up if you want to drop by.
When we’re going
We will be moving after the school holidays at the end of April. We'll let you know when we're in.
How to get in touch
Email and web contacts will of course be the same. During this trial period phones may be a little tricky, though. If possible, please call us on our mobiles:
