Five reasons to join a co-working space
It’s been said, or predicted, that co-working is the working style of the future. Many entrepreneurs, freelancers, and telecommuters are already enjoying the perks. Here’s what you need to know about these widely growing collaborative spaces.
- It cost nothing to test the waters
It’s to visit a co-working space and get a feel for the culture. In most spaces, you can take a tour or get a trial membership to help you determine if the co-working space is a good fit for you.
- Lots of benefits
Think free beverages, free printing, office space, meeting and/or conference rooms, discounted event rentals, and the list goes on. A co-working space isn’t just a desk with strangers, it’s a community so take advantage of its many benefits.
- Clients will thank you
As mentioned above, co-working spaces have meeting and/or conference rooms. This meaning you can have a productive meeting without disruptions. I’m sure your client is not a fan of discussing financial projections while the person to their right is laughing hysterically. Allow the tone of your client interactions to be set by you…not by Panera Bread.
- No more couch working
Let’s face it, as we mentioned in our last blog, working from home is tough in the winter. The days are shorter and darker. Not-to-mention, looking out at a stale sky can affect your mood. To avoid these lonely days, join a co-working space and bring the professionalism back to your work. It’s worth it.
- It’s good for you!
