Step by step we’re creating an office out of this leased space in Surry Hills, Sydney. It’s been four months since we moved here and we’ve allowed furnishing to gradually “just happen” rather than stressing it. Partly because we’ve got a load of work to do and partly because we know that we’ll spend so much time here that it needs to feel like home.
This is a two floor building that’s a bit too big for us. It wasn’t miles out of our budget but far from within it. But it instantly felt like a place we wanted to spend time in. Now we mourn the moments we’re not here, it’s a place we’re proud to show clients and partners and it’s a place that’s become a creative force and source in itself. A member of the team.
My point; to overspend is never the right thing. But if you want to go in a certain direction, take a step back and have a proper look before turning it down for monetary reasons. Occasionally a larger spend means an even larger gain. Due to a more expensive office we work more hours and take more meetings. Because we love to be here and we love to bring people here.
Investments may be profitable in other ways than the obvious one.
