CENTRL Solutions: How a consultant is creating a home base with his CENTRL membership
Over the past two years, the team here at CENTRL has seen an increase in the number of independent contractors and entrepreneurs who are looking for flexible, part-time workspaces where they can get their work done away from their home office.
We’ve gotten to know many of these professionals who are primarily working from home but want to have a professional space they can use when they need to have in person meetings, do things like scan or print, and just get out of the house.
One example of a professional who recently got a membership with CENTRL is a marketing consultant who recently started his own consultancy after years of working in marketing and growth teams at ecommerce companies. This consultant knew he could work mostly from his home, but he wanted the ability to: meet clients in a professional setting when needed, network with other LA-based entrepreneurs, and (simply) get out of his house once in a while.
He found CENTRL Office online and signed up for the FLEX Plus membership. Now, for less than $200 per month, he has unlimited weekday access to work in the common spaces at our downtown Los Angeles location, with high speed wi-fi and bottomless coffee included.
Here are a few questions that came up when this consultant was evaluating whether CENTRL was right for him:
When can I use CENTRL?
Our FLEX Plus membership gives you access to any CENTRL Office location during business hours (M-F 9-4). You can add a 24/7 access for an additional $100 a month which allows you to use one CENTRL location at anytime.
Where can I meet my clients?
Our FLEX Plus includes discounts for booking meeting rooms. And even if a meeting room isn’t required, members can still host meet and greets in one of our lounges.
What happens if I need to print something?
We’ve got printing and copying machines at all of our locations. On top of that, our memberships include all of our amenities, including secure, high speed wi-fi, kitchens, lounges, and support staff.
Can I grow my professional network?
The CENTRL community in downtown Los Angeles is full of creative startups and small businesses from a range of industries. Between relaxing in the lounge or grabbing a cup of bottomless coffee, there are plenty of great opportunities to connect with other local entrepreneurs.
If you are a solo entrepreneur, independent contractor, or remote employee looking for professional, well-designed spaces that allow you to collaborate, work individually, or just spend some time together in shared spaces, we invite you to schedule a tour with us.
