If you’re thinking about renting a coworking space, you might not be sure what you’re getting into. After all, this isn’t exactly an age old category. Coworking spaces are a new innovation in the business world, and many people might not have ever set foot into one as of yet. The world is becoming more and more virtual and remote every day, so we do expect coworking to be pretty commonplace in the near future, however, we’re not quite there yet. In order to help the many people who might be considering coworking as their new normal, we’ve put together a guide featuring a few of the most common questions we get when we tell people about 580 Executive Center.

Why Should I Use A Coworking Space When I Can Just Work From Home?
We get this question a lot, and the answer is simply this: if you take your work seriously, there are many reasons why home is not the best place to run a business from. For example, say you need to meet with a client. Having them over to your house can come across as unprofessional, even if you have great interior design skills. Anyone who’s actually worked from home can tell you that it’s also quite difficult to get into a work mindset sitting in the same spot where you just ate a bowl of Lucky Charms and watched Netflix. Investing in a space that is dedicated for work can do wonders for your motivation and work ethic.
Why Should I Use A Coworking Space When I Can Just Work From Starbucks?
This is probably the easiest of our FAQ’s to answer. Just walk into a cafe around 8 am and you’ll instantly understand why this isn’t an ideal place to run a business from. For one, the noise level goes up significantly during certain hours of the day, making it hard to focus, and almost impossible to conduct a business call from. Second of all, the space and resources are limited. There are only so many chairs and outlets to go around, and the wifi signal tends to get crowded as well.
Are There A Lot Of Other People There?
People tend to have a lot of questions about who they will meet and work alongside of in a coworking space. While there are people from many different industries and types of work, the design of a coworking space allows you to choose whether or not you feel like interacting throughout your day. If you’re working on a tight deadline, you might want to head over to the more quiet area, so that people know to give you some space. If you’re in the mood to talk or network, the open seating area allows you to meet some of the people around you, and discuss ideas or even collaborative projects.
