Solo who started pre-pandemic and as a result never transitioned into a traditional office setting. I enjoy work from home and it keeps overhead obviously low. I can afford to move into an office now (and planned to do so last spring before the shutdown). I find myself hesitating to make the leap. I’ve found most clients prefer zoom consultations or house calls. I practice in PI and cannabis. Curious to hear others’ thoughts on the necessity of a brick and mortar post pandemic. Thanks.

I don’t think it’s necessary and honestly, it keeps clients from randomly dropping by just to ask you a million unnecessary questions about their case.

Anyone have a perspective? Has covid changed it?

TO THE STRATEGISTS crafting your next big brief: how about we do something else besides “Inspiring You to be the Best You, Also Passion.” Maybe show your client the FIFTY other companies doing that exact strategy, and tell them not everything can be inspiring. Toyota for instance—not inspiring. Yogurt—not inspiring. How about we not inspire any “passions” or build any “worlds around you” for a while—give it a rest, maybe THINK OF SOMETHING ELSE and see how it goes?
