In the past, it was difficult to find a spot to get free Wi-Fi in order to work from a laptop. There was a time when the only quality internet connection you could get while out and about would cost you a pretty penny. Now, you can find a reliable internet connection at the vast majority of places you go. Even inexpensive, fast food restaurants often offer free Wi-Fi for patrons. This means that you can take your laptop and go sit down in a coffee shop or eatery and work for the cost of a cup of coffee or a bagel. Why would you consider an option like coworking that cost money when there are ‘free’ options available? You may want to consider using a coworking space instead of setting up at a coffee shop because it will help you concentrate, provide you with more workspace options, and give you a professional setting to meet with customers.
A coworking space can improve concentration
Some people think that working in a place that is bustling – like a coffee shop – helps with concentration. Is that true for you? Or do you put forth quite a bit of effort to block out the noise and other distractions when you are working at a coffee shop? Those noise canceling headphones may help but it is difficult to continuously ignore all of the activity going on around you. A coworking space can provide you with an environment that is free from constant distractions. You can dive into your work without the fear of getting distracted by the comings and goings of the people in the coffee shop.
A coworking space can provide you with more workspace options
When you work out of a coffee shop or fast food establishment you have limited options when it comes to a workspace – a table in a dining area or maybe a comfy chair in a corner. But there may come a time when you need another option for your workspace. A team meeting or group project is difficult to do without the appropriate accommodations. An important client meeting can quickly get derailed if you try and conduct it in a busy dining room. A coworking space can provide you with more workspace options to meet your various needs. For example, at 580 Executive Center you have access to a coworking space, conference rooms, and private executive suites if needed. These various spaces are there to meet the often-changing needs of professionals who work remotely.
There are some situations where working at a coffee shop is a welcomed and needed break from normal. However, the coffee shop is not a good long-term option for your professional career. You will eventually find that you want a place to concentrate and move between various workspace options as your needs evolve. A coworking space can provide you with these elements and many more. Still not convinced? Schedule a time to tour 580 Executive Center and see for yourself.
