Traveling for work can be both a blessing and a curse. On one side, you get to (hopefully) explore a new city, stay in a nice hotel, and have some great business dinners. But on the other hand, traveling majorly disrupts your routine and removes you from your familiar office. It can be hard to stay on track in a hotel lobby or at a nearby coffee shop. If you’re used to a private space with the typical office amenities, having to battle high schoolers getting frappuccinos after class is just one of the many obstacles you’ll face. Let’s get back on track and stay productive while working remotely with these four tips.
The way we work is rapidly changing. Not too long ago, the options were a cubicle or… a different cubicle. With the internet changing the way business is conducted, where we work is also shifting. Our office environment is tied to our productivity and happiness, and people are taking note. Instead of working from home, in a noisy coffee shop, or in a sea of identical cubicles, switch it up with a new type of workplace. Shared workspaces and coworking are two terms we hear a lot. Both offer amenities, community, and a fresh perspective on the traditional office. But what makes them different? Let’s find out which workspace is the perfect fit for you.
The Valentine’s Day season: for some of us its about a romantic date night, for others it means stuffing our faces with a chocolate box and watching a movie at home. Whether you are weathering the holiday solo or with a partner, Valentine’s Day can bring up feelings of loneliness. As freelance and remote work is on the rise, the “loneliness epidemic” is growing. One way to feel less isolated? Joining a shared workspace!
Just because you are coworking doesn’t mean you have to share everything! AdvantEdge can provide you with a dedicated desk where you can safely leave your computer and other belongings to save yourself the hassle.
Transitional phases in our work life range from the expected to something random. You may be in between jobs, trying to turn a passion project full-time, or experiencing a layoff. With the recent government shutdown leaving many workers furloughed, there was an influx of people experiencing how tough it can be to navigate your days without heading to the office from 9-5.
One of the myths about coworking is that it is for freelancers and start-ups. People envision open floor plans that only work if you fly solo or just have a small team. In reality, coworking is for companies of any size.
