What makes co-working a better option than working from home?
Co-working spaces have become a trend that is growing every year. Entrepreneurs and small business startups are excited to finally have a space to call their own without paying without the high costs of renting a commercial office space.
Coworking spaces offer multiple benefits. Here are a few:
There are fewer distractions.
At first, working from home seems like a great idea. You can work in your pajamas, you can get the laundry done in between tasks, but eventually, the distractions will take over.
With a coworking space, you are there to work. A coworking space allows entrepreneurs the freedom to move around without the expectations of a typical office environment, but it also gives them the opportunity to have control over their work, while distractions are far and few between.
Networking is easier.
Do you run a service based business? Do you like interacting with people on a daily basis? If you answered yes to those questions, a co-working space may be a solid option for you and your business. In a co-working environment, you are surrounded by like-minded people who have similar goals and expectations for their workday. Thus, it becomes easier to bounce ideas off of one another.
When working from home, networking becomes more difficult. Many experts say that working from home increases feelings of isolation and loneliness, due to lack of interaction with others.
Client interactions are more private.
If you run a business that requires you to regularly meet with potential and current clients, a co-working space offers you a place to do it without the hustle and bustle of the general public. While coffee shops are quaint meeting places, they can get crowded and loud, and ultimately, it could become a distraction from the business that needs to be done.
More resources are available.
Most co-working spaces, like Springboard, have more tools at your disposal. With whiteboards, projectors, printing services and more, business resources are provided for you to run your business the way it deserves to be run.
