In this weekly guide we are going to have a look at the things we think make a great coworking space and answer some of the popular questions we get asked when people come to Society1. So far we have looked at What is a Coworking Space and How can I use a Coworking Space.
In Part 3 we will explore the popular question – Why use a coworking space?
Working from home can be tough. Whether you are working from home for a company or for yourself it can be lonely. Having a day out of the house here and there work in an attractive and comfortable place gives you a great lift. It helps guard against loneliness and can be a great source of inspiration.
As a freelancer or small business owner a coworking space a great place to base your business. It provides a place for you to work, meet clients and meet other businesses. As well as a professional shop front for your business.
Be part of a supportive community. No matter what stage we are at in our business careers, working around likeminded people is a huge help. You don’t necessarily need to collaborate or take part in events. Our community is really relaxed and friendly. A chat over a coffee during your day or meeting people at our social events, in person and virtually.
Coworking is a great option if you meet clients. Breakout spaces for short ad hoc meetings or bookable meeting room offer a place to present your business in the right way. Much better than a coffee shop.
Build a team. The flexibility of coworking takes the pressure off when you are growing your team. You don’t have to jump straight into an office with all the hassles that go with it. Add desks as you need. Our group spaces are perfect for small teams. You can concentrate on your business without having to think about cleaning, stocking the kitchen and managing lots of bills.
There are lots of reasons to join a Coworking space, it is important to find the right one for you.
