2021 and COVID-19 The Motivators for a Career Change.

An entrepreneur is an individual who creates a new business, bearing most of the risks and enjoying most of the rewards. The entrepreneur is commonly seen as an innovator, a source of new ideas, goods, services, and business/or procedures and works on their own terms and at their own pace. 


The coronavirus pandemic, living in lockdown, and tackling the evergrowing tier system has forced all of us to re-evaluate our lives and to think of new ways of working. 

According to Companies House growth formation figures in June, an extra 85,000 new businesses were created in 2020 as COVID prompts some of us to realise our dreams of setting up on our own. 

Indeed, economic downturns are always accompanied by a rise of entrepreneurs and with two-thirds of UK workers considering a career change, some are even taking the plunge and starting up a new business from home. 

Business planning and budgeting are paramount for anyone considering going it alone, however, it is also just as important to create the right environment to kick off your venture and take your business to the next level. 

Creating a separate office to launch your new business provides a professional and productive workspace whilst ensuring privacy and less opportunity to be distracted. 

A light and airy garden office, stylish garage conversion or beautiful home extension establishes a clear distinction between home and work life as well as providing the perfect professional space to invite investors, colleagues or clients to. 

MP Architects can support you with identifying the best position to situate your home office for the perfect professional working environment. 

Where necessary we will obtain quick and simple planning permission if your outbuilding falls outside the boundaries of permitted development. 

If you have decided to create a business from home, we are here to help you turn small steps into big dreams and beyond by designing the perfect workspace for 2021’s entrepreneurs! 

Stay safe.
