When you don’t want to work from the office but coffee shops are too distracting.
Whether you are an entrepreneur, creative, freelancer, or just a student in search of a comfortable and conducive workspace to complete your work, co-working spaces are your best bet.
What is a co-working space?
Co-working spaces are essentially shared workspaces that offer an affordable alternative to the typical coffee shops, libraries and home offices. These places also come readily equipped with facilities from freshly brewed coffee for a quick boost as well as photocopy machines, printers, etc.
Some even come with entertainment like board games, ping pong tables, even video games in case you need something to take your mind off work.
The highlight of these co-working spaces is definitely the element of community working that it aims to promote. With people from all walks of life and industries working together, it is a great place for networking and bouncing ideas off one another.
