Coworking spaces are viable options for entrepreneurs and/or remote workers to socialize within a professional environment while staying on task. However, the key factor for coworking spaces is location, pure and simple.
Close to Home
58% percent of coworking members choose the location because it is close to home. Makes sense. If you are in a position to chose your office, why wouldn’t you eliminate a long, tedious commute?
Long commutes do not leave much time for personal errands like:
- Grocery shopping
- Dry Cleaning
- Doctor/Dentist Appointments
Coworkers who choose a location close to home eliminate the need to do things for their personal lives late in the evening or on weekends. The same time everyone else who lacks time during the work week!
Working closer to home also allows the coworking members to participate in more social occasions (e.g. lunch/dinner with friends). Most importantly, family time (e.g. participation in family dinners, children’s sporting/school activities).
You could say coworking locations with closer proximity to home means closer proximity to work-life balance. Not an easy goal to achieve nowadays.
Close to Amenities
Coworking spaces with easy access to green spaces, restaurants and entertainment options provide outlets to reset and keep fresh ideas flowing. Sitting in a car for a long commute to/from work is one thing, continuing the monotony throughout the day without desirable break options is the opposite of work-life balance.
Coworking locations with access to "break worthy" amenities break up workday, eliminating rote routine and ultimately burn out.
So, when considering a coworking location, consider options close to home with desirable amenities nearby. Not only will you thank yourself, but family and friends will also find it beneficial as well.
