Coworking can be a unique alternative to working from home, or even from your own office. A shared workspace offers a variety of perks and the environment - typically filled with other dedicated professionals - may even provide motivation that a traditional office space could be lacking. There’s just something special about working in a shared office space. You’ll feel a lack of competition, compared to being in a traditional office space. That feeling is replaced with a sense of community, collaboration, learning, and sustainability with individuals who you may not have met otherwise.
