People thrive in coworking spaces for several reasons. First, most people working in coworking spaces are passionate about their businesses. Small- and medium-sized business owners looking to grow their businesses are also motivated about going to work in a place that they like. Coworking spaces, such as Venture X, are design-forward, upscale, well-furnished spaces, located in reputable neighborhoods near or in central business districts. People thrive in coworking spaces, with everything they need to work each day, including business class office machines, such as printers and copiers, coffee and water and the professional environment needed to conduct business.
In addition to working at a shared desk space, dedicated desk space, or private office space, members also enjoy comfortable lounge and dining areas, in addition to outdoor patios and other spaces where they can work or take breaks during the day. The flexibility in when and where to work also inspires new ideas and keeps members engaged in growing their business. Coworking space members say their productivity increases when working around other business owners. The diverse collection of business owners in coworking spaces also creates a sense of belonging to a community that helps you grow your business through networking in your coworking community. Networking with other business owners can potentially lead to new ideas and collaboration, as well. Growing your own business in a coworking space also gives you access to a wealth of services, products, and human resources to draw from when needed. Freelancers, such as photographers, writers, marketers, and web designers can help upgrade your website, develop marketing initiatives, and contribute to other services that set your brand apart from others. When your business expands and needs more employees, you may be able to hire from within your coworking community, saving time in the vetting process.
Professional people thrive in coworking spaces because they feel more in control than people who work in traditional office spaces. Ultimately, people enjoy working in coworking spaces because they like to go to work in a space they like to work in, around people who inspire them to do their best work, and where they feel like they belong to a community of like-minded professionals. If you are curious about whether or not you would thrive in a coworking space, try it out at your local Venture X – it’s that easy.
