Why I Joined A Co-Working Space
I vowed back in June when I left my corporate job that I would never work in a cubicle again.
Although I still have yet to break that vow, there was one benefit to working in a cube-farm: the company of others.
Yup, I got lonely working on my own.
I managed to get out and work in coffee shops from time to time, but there were a few aspects missing from what I consider an ideal workspace.
1. The Vibe
Coffee shops are hit or miss. Depending on the time of day and location, a coffee shop could be buzzing with young and ambitious go-getters, or could be completely dead.
A co-working space offers a consistent steady vibe of let’s-get-shit-done.
2. The Investment
Co-working spaces cost a monthly membership. When you pay to be somewhere, you take that space seriously.
A co-working space is nothing but a subconscious reminder that I believe in the work I am doing. It’s an investment and I will treat the space as such.
3. The People
My co-working space is a hodgepodge of other like minded entrepreneurs looking to make their dent in the world.
Surrounding yourself with the right people matters.
