All the best bits about sharing a workspace…
There is certainly something very exciting about being part of a coworking space. Days move fast, faces change and the coffee is free flowing. It’s a revolution of kinds, truly redefining how we think of the office work place and creating a new sustainable blueprint for the future.
So what’s so great about it?
Everything…especially if you’re lucky enough to work in Byron Bay like I do.
If you are looking for a way to have a centrally located and professional environment for your business that wont cost you your third born child and a kidney, this is the way to go. You will save money and yet have the best of all the office necessities- printers, super fast internet, utilities and so on. Not to mention that you will generally find yourself in a location that you otherwise could have never afforded.
While saving cash is great, and it definitely is, there is so much more to enjoy and appreciate when it comes to coworking.
You become part of a community. And possibly the greatest side effect of this is how your creativity and productivity will flow. Unlike a regular office where you sit surrounded by those that you are in direct competition with, the pressure is off in a coworking space and the chance to collaborate and ask questions from others with no agenda will see your creativity flourish.
Coworking promotes a work/life balance. It puts you in control of when and how you work. With 24/7 access, you can go for that run, have that coffee break or even meet a friend for lunch. Coworking spaces have social activities and events for you to participate in, mingle and meet new people. You get to have a life and at the end of your day, what ever time that may be, you will be less stressed, more energised and be able to enjoy your work life more than ever before.
So if you are sick of the distractions at your home based office, or all the screaming extras at the internet café you claim to enjoy so much, give a co-working space a go. You wont regret it, in fact, you might just love it.
Oh, and if you’re in the Byron Bay area, come on down to Sustainable Valley. We would love to have you here.
