I feel like I won’t have a real business until I have office space.
I once said the above statement to my mentor, David. His reply back was, "That's just ego." David then told me a story about how he used to have a big office that included a conference room for his company. Everyone had been working out of the spare room in his home, but his ego led him to get an office. When the father of one of his key employees became ill, the employee requested to work remotely so he could move back home to care for him. David said yes and worked out a plan to make that work. Over time as they saw it working, other employees began to ask if they could work from home too. Soon it was just David and his assistant working in the big office space. He then got rid of the office that was costing him $5,000 a month in rent!
