Time for a change?

I was at a Christmas party for one of my tech support clients last night and was speaking to the graphic designer they contract work out to on occasion. She shares office space with a few other micro businesses about 2kms from my current home office. Apparently one of the other businesses is moving out in a few weeks time and they're going to be looking for someone to take his place.

I haven't seen it yet but it sounds quite appealing and the rent is supposedly ridiculously cheap. I'll probably go and take a look early next week and meet the other business owners. If it's everything I've been told, and she hasn't promised a lot, I think I'll jump at the chance.

Five years ago I had a home office and it's something I said I'd never do again. I went back on that promise last year to string out my savings as long as possible for Sydney. Against my better judgement I moved into a one bedroom unit and turned the kitchen/living area into a kitchen/office. In theory it was do-able, in practice...

Just be wary that you don't become the default "tech support guy" for the other micro businesses. This could get in the way of your real goals though.
