I got a virtual office where I could bring a client if needed and had an address but ended up getting rid of it because just not many people wanted to come. It helps lower overhead to not have one.

Helps to have an address like a Shared office space building where people can look you up and see that it’s an office building and where you can meet clients if you ever need so you don’t have to meet them at your home.
