Coworking spaces are a huge trend in the business world right now. Around the country, but especially in the bay area, people are dealing with the rising prices of rent and expenses involved with having a physical office space. For some companies, an office space is essential, such as a law practice or therapy office. These businesses involve a lot of face to face interaction with clients, and therefore require a space that looks and feels professional for those who visit on a daily basis. For other businesses, however, face to face interaction with clients might be rare, or even impossible, depending on the distance between the two. If your business falls into this category you might be considering other options besides renting an entire office suite, simply because that’s the way things have been done, or because your business is doing well and you can afford to rent one.
First of all, we understand that although you might not have a need for an entire office suite suited for guests that you rarely host, you still need a space that you can work in. Often times, people have trouble working from their home, because their home is a place where they relax and spend time with their family. As it should be! You don’t want your home to become a shrine dedicated to the different projects you’re working on, and i’m sure your partner or children don’t either. Leaving the house to get work done can actually help you transition into “work mode”, and help you get more work done in the same amount of time, simply because you’re in the right mindspace. Additionally, having a place where you do work, and work only, can allow you to drive away from all the stress and avoid bringing work home with you, both literally and figuratively. Having a work space away from home can help you maintain a healthy work-life balance.
This is exactly why coworking spaces are a great alternative to consider. Not only do they provide the professional and motivational environment we were just discussing, but they eliminate many of the issues of a traditional office space rental. For one, they’re considerably less expensive. You also won’t need to sign a lease or make any long-term commitment. Say you have a project to finish up this month, but next month you’ll be out of town on vacation, and then a business trip. Pay for a spot at your coworking space this month, skip next month, and come back the month after. You’ll never pay for time you’re not using at a coworking space.
Coworking spaces come with all the supplies and equipment you might need to get any project done. You’ll never have to worry about wifi speeds or restarting routers. On top of that, we provide conference rooms, quiet areas, and even private phone booths to make important calls from.
Coworking spaces are easily one of the best options for anyone who’s business doesn’t require an office space on a daily basis. Keep your motivation, save some money, and maintain work-life balance by renting a coworking space.
