Any practitioner in the wellness sector will tell you. It is a real hassle to find your first consulting room after training. There are many rental offers, generally expensive and not very flexible. Almost all professional spaces are rented by the day or half-day with a long-term commitment of a minimum of six months or even a year.
When you start your career, it is almost impossible, financially speaking, to rent such a professional space and to bear the monthly costs of rent when you do not even have your first patient or client yet.
We had to wait until 2021 to see the arrival on the rental market of business premises equipped with hourly rentals. How could we not have thought of this earlier! Indeed, it is ideal for those who are just starting out in their practice and for those for whom the practice of their discipline is complementary to another job. Renting a practice by the hour allows total flexibility in one's schedule. Indeed, at the beginning of one's career it is almost impossible to group one's first patients in a fixed time slot. The system of renting a practice by the hour allows you to come when it suits you: during the week, at the weekend, during the day or in the evening. The hourly practice rental system also allows us to have no constraints and no long-term commitment: no lease to sign or monthly rent to pay. The principle is to pay only for the hours you need. No more and no less.
As a result of the health crisis we are experiencing, many practitioners who started last year have had to leave their fixed location. They have lost a lot of money by paying rents without being able to practice.
The times we live in are propelling flexible work spaces. Coworking spaces, for example, are a resounding success. Today, the pooling of spaces also affects certain targeted professions such as hairdressing, cooking and wellness. Gone are the days of renting a fixed office. Mobile workers will tell you that they prefer to go and work in a different space every day to be closer to their clients and not to fall into monotony.
Renting a practice or professional premises on an hourly basis is THE solution for beginners and for those who are self-employed or simply need a temporary base.
Flexibility is today's watchword!
