Are you one of the millions of people worldwide who work from home? Maybe you’re one of those individuals who starts work at 6 am, scrambling to get this one thing done before the kids wake up. Maybe you split your day up by working from your local coffee shop, or maybe you like to travel a lot. No matter your habits or the reason, you are a work from home employee.
- It’s not always all it’s cracked up to be
I bet people are jealous of you, and they let you know it. You probably hear these regularly some rendition of these on a regular basis:
“Oh that’s so nice, you get to work in your pajamas.”
“Oh, I’d love to set my own hours.”
“I’m funemployed! We should get lunch and then see a movie!”
Yes, at some time or another, someone has probably said something like the previous statements to you. Sure you may get to work in your pajamas at times, but it’s as if people don’t think you actually work when you work from home.
Or maybe you haven’t heard anything like this. Because you haven’t heard anything. From anyone except your cat, in a long time. Like a week. Going without communication and human contact can be just as mentally draining as hearing too much out of people.
- Enter: Co-working spaces
Co-working spaces are offices that anyone can rent and where anyone can work. Co-working spaces are great options for those working from home because they can offer more than your house.
With so many creative and like-minded people renting co-working space, you’ll have the opportunity to meet talented people that you may not have otherwise met. These people can be valuable to growing your network, and your business.
Your home office is not the best place to bring a prospective client if you’re trying to air on the side of professionalism. Also, you may not want to take a work call if your toddler just woke up from a nap and is screaming to be fed.
With a co-working space like we offer, you’ll have access to conference rooms to meet clients, as well as private telephone booths to take and make calls. You won’t have to worry about looking unprofessional or like you can’t afford an office.
If you’re someone who works from home and are considering a co-working space instead, contact us. We’ll help you determine what’s right for you.
