The New Year has officially arrived, which means you’re probably planning for a productive, fruitful, and lucrative year ahead of you and your personal venture. For most startups, entrepreneurs, and fledgling businesses, the dream of owning a personal business space is out of the question. Consider the alternative of coworking instead of staying at home and working on the couch. That just doesn’t get the motivational juices flowing. And the cat isn’t a great coworker.
That leads many savvy business personnel to consider the benefits of working in a coworking space. If you’re on the fence, here are the top 7 reasons to consider this working environment:
1. Higher Success
As humans, we are social creatures. We are motivated and influenced by the people around us. Coworking spaces are brimming with innovative and diverse business owners that contribute to overall success. Not only will these other members double as your clients, they will also provide you with advice and tips for future growth.
2. No Loneliness
It is downright lonely working at home alone 40-hours per week. As we mentioned above, we desire socialization as humans, and require it to be mentally happy and stable.
We at Alkaloid, we have a member resources portal specifically to help you connect with other members. You can find your very first customers right inside your new community.
4. Work-Life Balance
When entrepreneurs work from home, there is a work life balance line that gets severely blurred. When should you stop, step away, and turn on the TV? It sits there all day, taunting you, as you try to make it all black and white. With a coworking space, it’s your actual work space away from home.
5. Quiet and Focus
Although our coworking space is filled with plenty of events and after-work socialization opportunities, the overall environment is quiet and focused. Coffee shops, on the other hand, can be filled with raucous chatter, loud phone calls, and disgruntled customers yelling at employees.
Depending on what business you run, you might need to meet with clients on a weekly basis. They will be much more impressed by you and your professionalism if you meet with them in a high-scale coworking space, as opposed to a coffee shop or your apartment.
Lastly, from a personal satisfaction standpoint, we generally feel better and more supported as humans if we belong to a community. You will come to make friends, acquaintances, and clients with the individuals in our space, which will start to make Alkaloid really feel like home to you.
