Working for yourself shouldn’t have to mean being on your own. Leaving behind traditional employment is becoming increasingly normal for many but its not an easy step to take because the moment you decide to strike out on your own, you become responsible for everything. For many they don’t necessarily have a lot of help, or mentors to bounce things off of. To forge your own path is a great thing, but doing it alone can be hard.
Good news: there’s a movement for that. It’s called the CoWorking movement, and since 2005 it’s been growing exponentially as more and more independent workers find new ways to gather and help one another. The premise is simple: instead of working in isolation in our homes or in coffee shops among strangers, we gather with intention in environments that are supportive to getting to know one another while we work.
While having a space to work in is a critical component to the process, we recognize that we’re gathering not because we need space, but because we want to be around people we get along with. While that could happen anywhere, CoWorking Spaces provide a consistent and reliable place you can count on to welcome you with open arms any time.
CoWorking gives us a way to work on our own things while still feeling like we’re part of something bigger than ourselves. Feeling like you can commute to a place where people you know will be working and excited to see you can be a really, really good feeling. By forming communities around our shared needs, we create opportunities to help each other. Someone else’s weakness is another’s strength; together we are far more than the sum of our parts.
