Shared office spaces are the latest concept for entrepreneurs, freelancers and people starting their own businesses who want to avoid the typical office. Co-working spaces consist of offices, suites, and cubicles that are rented out individually instead of renting an entire office or building for your business.
Smaller businesses work amazingly well in this arrangement for many reasons, so co-working communities are becoming popular in everywhere from New York City to Miami to LA.
The Millenial Generation are filling these buildings because it fits their lifestyle so well, and other business owners are doing the same. Saving money is a major reason, and it is very understandable. The one, all-inclusive rent for the month includes security, lights, space, parking, endless coffee, typically, office cleaning and an environment that has a community feeling. It is non-threatening because there is no competition like there can be in a corporate setting.
Research and surveys reveal that the community feeling is one of the most important reasons for leaving a single office setting. Despite the fact that the monthly rent will be lower and there is more freedom to focus on work. You can forget about the “office duties” such as maintaining a clean office. or making coffee for the entire office.
