They say sharing is caring, and we think this principle absolutely applies to sharing an office space!
Coworking offers a unique environment, along with a host of new opportunities. It combines the best of working from home and working from an office, blending them into a shared space that is inspiring, collaborative, and customizable.
Coworking means you get to share a space with other dedicated, passionate, and driven professionals who share your values. When you share a workspace with like-minded entrepreneurs, small business owners, and independent contractors, you become part of a community. You get the cooperative spirit of an office environment and so much more.
The Social Network of Coworking
If you miss the social time you spent with your coworkers around the water cooler but don’t miss the stuffy office environment, then a coworking space is the perfect middle ground. Not only is this a great way to socialize, but it’s also a built-in networking opportunity.
You are surrounded by other business-minded individuals looking to make connections, which makes it incredibly easy to forge a collaborative working relationship. Whether you’re looking to bounce ideas off a savvy sounding board or simply get some inspiration from your fellow creatives, a coworking space is the right choice for you.
Working it Your Way
Not all employees work the same way. Some prefer an independent, hands-off approach, while others love working collaboratively. By nature of their profession, entrepreneurs are self-starters who would rather set their own schedule than have it handed to them. In a coworking space, you can work the way that suits you. You get all the perks and amenities of a brick and mortar office without stifling managerial oversight. Dictate your own hours, work style, and associates—the choice is yours!
A More Productive Environment
Let’s face it: working from home isn’t a viable option for everyone. Sure, it offers more flexibility and freedom than working in an office nine-to-five, but it also comes with its share of pitfalls. Home is full of distractions: kids and pets, unfinished household chores, and the temptation of the television.
Coworking offices provide you with a compartmentalized space that is dedicated to working. Everyone else is in the productive headspace, too, so it’s easier to get into the zone. When you’re there, it’s time to get down to business, and when you leave, the working day is over. At home, business and pleasure can start to blend together, but at a coworking office, not so much. But that doesn’t mean that you have to abide by the 9-5 workday schedule. Many coworking facilities offer round the clock, 24/7 access to their office spaces and amenities.
The Price is Right
Working from home may be free, but we can say with near certainty that your home office can’t compare with the services and amenities available in a coworking space. Get access to regularly maintained and fully stocked offices with everything you could want to run a business, all for a low monthly fee.
