Is Coworking For You?
Have you recently noticed Facebook friends, forum post members and LinkedIn professionals in your field discussing coworking? Are you worried that you are spending too much alone, which in turn is causing you to spend too much time surfing the internet and lingering in the open chat area of a professional forum instead of finding new ways to grow your new business? If you answered “yes” to either, or both of these questions, you may be ready to explore whether Atlanta coworking is for you.
Is Coworking for You?
No matter if you are a freelancer, entrepreneur, small business owner, or the leader of a small startup company, it may be time to step away from the kitchen table serving as your professional nerve center. It has served you well, in business and dining, but if you suspect it is time to expand your menu, you may need to just go with it.
Take a look at 4 clues that may help tip you off that coworking is for you:
- You Need Regular Professional Interaction and a Sense of Community. While you love your cat or dog, significant other, and your kids, they probably don’t provide interactions that help spark your engine to churn out a blog post, sales letter, or other major project. At an Atlanta coworking space, you have the chance to spend time around like-minded self-starters who completely understand the amazing mix of challenges and rewards of working for yourself. A coworking space gives you the chance to spend quality time among peers with the added bonus of possible networking and collaboration opportunities.
- You Need Flexible Shared Office Space Time. You might imagine that, in order to get the best bang for your buck, you need to spend each day at your coworking space for a certain number of hours. The truth is that it is up to you how much time you want to spend at your shared space. With reasonable monthly fees at most local coworking communities, as well as 24/7 access to the facility, you can create a schedule that works best for you. At SharedSpace, we want to see our tenants as much as possible, but we understand that everyone has their own rhythm.
- You Need More Space Options. As your business grows, you may find that you need a consistently clear space to spread out your supplies, or you may need access to a well-equipped and modern conference room. With a coworking office space, you will have those options and so much more.
- You Need Amenities You Don’t Even Know You Need. Top-notch shared spaces firms monitor their tenants’ habits and needs over time, and they work to make sure you have what you want or need before you realize you need it. It sounds like magic—and it is kind of magical, really—but it’s all true. Enjoy having access to free endless coffee, Wifi, printing services, convenient parking, a kitchen, and Micromart vending services, for starters.
