As more and more individuals create businesses that they can manage from anywhere, the greater the demand for coworking spaces will be. Entrepreneurs are loving the ability to work from home, but sometimes home isn’t the best place to work. Read on to explore the three key benefits of coworking spaces.


Benefits of Coworking Spaces #1: Productivity for 500, Alex

Let’s face it, working from home is filled with endless distractions. Maybe you have kids running around or a spouse that likes to strike random conversation while you’re working. Or you feel inclined to wash those dishes or complete laundry during your working hours. These, my fellow bosses, are all distractions.

Based on a study shared by Office Vibe, coworking spaces made 64% of entrepreneurs more productive. The study also showed that 68% were able to focus better while coworking and 90% said they felt more confident in their coworking space. If that’s not enough to persuade you, then knowing that 50% reported higher incomes might do the trick.

Benefits of Coworking Spaces #2: Flexibility

coworkingWhile traditional office space will want you to commit to a lease, coworking spaces offer a lot more flexibility. You don’t have to worry about utility bills, meeting building codes, or any of that other mumbo jumbo. Coworking spaces give you the flexibility to rent space on much more flexible terms.

For example, if you need to have an interview but you’re not feeling the Starbucks scene, some spaces will grant you a private office for 1 hour.

Benefits of Coworking Spaces #3: Yes! A Social Life

The wonderful thing about coworking spaces is your ability to meet other professionals. Many entrepreneurs who work from home often feel lonely, which can have a negative affect on your mental health. Remember how the social interactions at work made the day go faster?

Coworking spaces also offer amazing networking opportunities and lead to friendships after work.
