Co-working spaces are the future of small business
Here is a look at my first week in my new co-working office space!
So far my first week at Launch Cooperative has been a huge success! Launch Cooperative is a co-working space in Salem, MA that provides individuals who work from home an alternative working scene. You can either rent a desk on a monthly basis or by the day as needed.
Co-working spaces are a newer trend in the business world. With freelancers entering the workforce at lightning speeds, there is a need for out-of-the-home, office space alternatives.
Yes, you can go to a coffee shop with your laptop, but do you have stationary spot that you can call your own that provides you with office resources as needed? Co-working spaces are a great “home away from home” that is set up with office equipment for your business needs.
For me it is nice to finally have a place where I am not being reminded of the dishes, laundry, food shopping that needs to be done. Digital technology makes everything I need easily accessible thanks to programs like DropBox and Microsoft Sky. All my other office needs are covered by Launch Cooperative. The space offers:
- Office supplies
- Conference room accessibility
- Coffee and tea station
- Convenient location, (downtown Salem on New Derby Street, right above Delande Lighting)
- Easily Accessible to Public Transportation
- Metered parking
- Permanent members receive 24/7 access
This week the change in scenery has helped me immensely in focusing on my work and plug through my massive to-do list. Working from home is a great option. There are days that it works for me. However there are times when going to a different environment is more beneficial to my workflow. I would recommend this to anyone looking for an alternative workspace.
