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.

  1. 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.
  1. 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.
  1. 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.
  1. 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.
  1. It’s good for you!
