The coworking life is one that is increasingly becoming the norm for people who are leaving office work and looking to create their own future. However, for many coworkers, there’s much uncertainty about how to get started in the coworking lifestyle.
Assuming the right coworking space is available and chosen, a coworker needs to know exactly how to get started. There are essentials in equipment and attitude to make coworker’s life much easier.
Every coworker needs a laptop. This seems redundant but it’s surprising how many coworkers chose the wrong one. For graphic designers, it’s essential to have powerful graphic engines within the laptop.
Similarly, people writing code need to have powerful laptops to help them get the most out of their development. Since software development is among the largest areas of growth, it makes sense for people to research their equipment. Knowing what’s needed in this most essential tool gets the most bang for the buck with coworkers.
Coworking is much different from a traditional office or a home office for that matter. This means coworkers must approach coworking with an open mind. Be positive about new situations and people. Some days may be challenging, but there’s great reward in working for oneself and having a supportive community just one desk away.
There are plenty of events too, so don’t just think they’re not applicable, keep trying new things because the ones who get outside of the box invariably succeed.
Willingness to Ask for Help
Most coworkers are highly motivated individuals who don’t need the help of others to solve their issues. They loathe to ask for help and just want to solve their own problems. Instead of being not just an entrepreneur but a tech support/office manager/jack of all trades, go to the receptionist and ask for help when needed.
Ask questions to other coworkers about problems encountered. Talk to people and be willing to get advice. This serves coworkers well and helps the process of integrating coworking into professional life happen with greater ease.
