For many people that are starting their business, they’re doing so to work from home or to experience more flexible business hours. The idea of working from home might seem simple at first but it can quickly grow difficult to establish a work-life balance. Managing your household chores can be very tempting as you are handling tasks at work. It can also be very easy to feel as though you’re at work even when you are sitting at home and relaxing. The guilt can continue to mount as you struggle to find a proper work-life balance.
One of the best alternatives if you can’t afford a traditional office space is a co-working situation. Workspace providers in co-working now have thousands of locations across the world. Shared office spaces give the chance for entrepreneurs to work in an environment that has the amenities that they need to manage their work and to get into the mindset of work as well. The arrangement in a co-working space can give employees access to the technology that they need, the professional office space that is required, as well as an improved quality of work by feeling like they are in a dedicated space.
Being in an office encourages collaboration and most co-working spaces are modern and buzzing spaces that can lead to improved motivation techniques because an entrepreneur can feel more motivated by the people around them.
Telecommuting and remote work increased by nearly 80% between the years 2005 and 2012. There are many businesses that are now managing their entire staff in different co-working locations and a number of corporations that even consider their main location to be an office that is in a coworking space. Getting involved with a co-working space can be an excellent alternative to help you find a work and life balance that is like a traditional office space but with a number of flexibility improvements.
