If you work from home, or from the local coffee shop, a coworking space might be just what you need to up-level your business. Coworking offers all kinds of benefits to entrepreneurs. Of these, the top three are a sense of community, the flexibility to meet your business needs and an affordable price point.
For some people, working from home can be a challenge. Without colleagues to talk to, you end up having arguments about accounts receivable with your cat. When you reach that point, it’s time to find some new coworkers.
With membership to a coworking space, you also get informal access to a social network of fellow professionals. These people are also starting businesses, being innovative, and working to make their dreams a reality. You’ll face many of the same challenges and have to weigh the same opportunities. But you won’t do it alone. Your fellow co-workers become a resource and a support system.
Even if you have a business partner, coworking can provide valuable opportunities. It expands your network and introduces you to new ideas. Research shows that exposure to diverse people and ideas makes you more creative – a quality that all entrepreneurs need.
The best thing about coworking is it’s flexible. Because the upfront cost is fairly small. You don’t feel obliged to work only in your coworking space. It gives you a place to go when you want a desk and a chair and maybe some useful business conversation, but you don’t have to work there and only there. You can just as easily hang out in the coffee shop or camp out on your couch.
When you’re ready to upgrade to a dedicated office, you can do that. Just stroll down the hall and talk to Jackie about the offices she has available. If you need to move your business or downsize, you can do that too, without breaking a lease or losing a deposit. Your coworking space is there for you as frequently or infrequently as you need it, for as long as you need it.
Coworking is the number one way to get your business off the kitchen table without the investment of a private office. At College Park Executive Suites you can get access to a coworking space for as little as $45 a month. You might spend more on coffee and snacks while working at a coffee shop than it will cost you to get on-demand access to a coworking space.
You get prestige of an office for a fraction of the price. A coworking space gives you a place to meet with clients and even host small events. At College Park Executive Suites we have two conference rooms that you can rent for just dollars an hour. Plus, you get free coffee and tea, free parking, and a bunch of other perks that make coworking a smart investment.
