3 Ways a Cowork Space Will Elevate Your Home-Based Business
Are you a home-based business working from your kitchen table and meeting clients at local coffee shops? Are you needing more separation between work and home life? If so, a cowork space could be exactly what you need!
Keep reading for three ways moving into a cowork office could take your small business to the next level.
#1: Entrepreneur Networking
What are coworking spaces filled with? Entrepreneurs! And those entrepreneurs can connect you with more entrepreneurs, allowing you to quickly grow your network of like-minded people. Having this network of people who understand all that goes into starting your own business is extremely valuable. We always say “the future of business lies in collaborating” and it couldn’t be more true!
#2: Business Professionalism
Taking your business out of your home and into an office setting adds credibility to your small business. However, renting a full office is often not an option, which is why renting a cowork space is a great solution. Though meeting at coffee shops is fine, having your own space where clients can come to you allows you to be as efficient as possible with your time. No more being stuck in traffic on your way to meet a client, only to realize you forgot your laptop charger at home. Having one dedicated zone for all of your business-related tasks allows you to focus your time and energy on growing your business.
#3: Workplace Culture
A coworking space is a natural entrepreneurial environment. This type of environment nurtures creativity and is designed for small business owners. All the small details of running an office are taken care of, meaning you can just show up and get started! Though not all coworking spaces are created equally, most have the basic features like coffee/tea, wifi, and office furniture included in the monthly rent. All you have to do is choose the one that best suits your needs!
Regardless of your work style, you can likely find a cowork space that will work for your business needs. Some are more open and suited to collaborating and working in groups, while some are more suited to individuals who would like more quiet or privacy.
If this all sounds great to you, you’re in luck! We still have some furnished private offices for rent in our Sherwood Park office (photo below). These offices come with all the perks of a traditional cowork space, but you have your own private office with the option to work in our open lounge whenever you want. This gives you the freedom to be in a collaborative environment, or to work by yourself in your own office. Of course, unlimited coffee, high-speed wifi, free parking, and access to our lounge is all provided to you in order to give you the best workspace possible.
