Working from home or in a "traditional" office space does not typically grant entrepreneurs the opportunity to "pick the brains" of like minded individuals. Coworking, on the other hand, allows
- and breeds - collaboration between freelancers & remote workers.
At every member's disposal is a vast skill set that spans across nearly every profession under the sun.. and they don't even have to leave the building to access it! From across your desk you can share and gain the same expertise and services that non-coworkers travel all across town attempting to accomplish. Experience what it's like to work alongside every type of professional you'd ever need.
Billions of people commute to work each day. Some spend as much time travelling per day as they do actually working. One of the most beneficial perks of coworking is that freelancers and remote workers are able to decide where and exactly how long they'd like to travel to their office.
If you're able to eliminate long drives and traffic jams from your daily schedule, all while gaining yourself endless networking opportunities, why wouldn't you? Whether you spend 10 or 100 minutes getting to work, your freedom to choose the scenery, the location, and the community you're a part of each day could drastically increase your productivity. Just imagine being able to cut the commute and customize your work life to perfectly fit your lifestyle. This simple decision can save you time, energy, and stress on a daily basis!
Being self-employed or working remotely and working at home comes with perks, such as flexible hours and pajama days. But it can get pretty lonely, especially if your neighbors aren’t home during the day.
A remote employee and coworker, Terry W., graciously shares his thoughts on coworking, "If you search the internet, you will find multiple topics in regards to working from home. One topic will see a lot of discussion on is “how to prevent being lonely” while working from home. Unfortunately, many people find that if they have been accustomed to working around people most of their lives, when they start working from home it gives them a sense of isolation and loneliness. Not only that, you will find that your cognitive skills start to diminish as well. There are multiple articles explaining how to combat the side effects of working alone by using various techniques and activities. However, most of us are not designed to work in isolation and we need to be around other professionals to grow our business ideas, knowledge and communication skills. The problem with most of the “co-working” offices, is that they are not actually co-working offices. They are offices that you can rent to keep from working from home, but they do not have an office environment that is filled with energy, ideas and people. They do not support the needs of the growing professional. This is not the case at the T-Werx Coworking. T-Werx is more than just an office, it is an environment where you can engage with people on a daily basis to grow as an individual and grow your business. It is an active support network of ideas and resources. The facility is very professional. This is a place where you can be proud to bring your clients, both big and small. I chose to locate my office at T-Werx Coworking for these reasons and I have not been disappointed. Each day has been both exciting and rewarding."
Do you get incredibly distracted working from home? Do you struggle to create a clear distinction between your work/home hours/life? It’s easy to answer the phone, a knock at the door, or start doing chores when you should be working. It's nice to have the flexibility to do those things, but the distractions can really add up and pull you away from your FOCUS. When you choose to cowork you are removing yourself from the distractions and putting yourself into a more focused, distraction-free environment.
Feeling scattered? Unmotivated? A coworking space may be just what you need.
Coworking is a place that both inspires you to be productive and is home to so many interesting self-starters! Sometimes working from home can get a little distracting with laundry, and other tasks that ‘just take 5 minutes’ but those random breaks can interrupt the creative process.
