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.

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.
Have you decided that working in your sweats is not all it’s cracked up to be? Does your home office feel isolating? Do you long for the social aspect of a traditional office environment?

However, there are those who are blinded by the idea of eliminating a commute or the need for business clothes and jump into the home office life only to realize they miss or need the amenities of a traditional workspace. So, if you are looking to reintegrate your work-from-home life back into the office lifestyle, here are some tips on how to upgrade and have a smooth transition!

Day in and day out, many people dread their commutes. From sitting in gridlock traffic to crowded metro cars, getting to work is often one's least favorite part of the day- and sometimes the most frustrating.

It can be daunting at first, but once you have a route, gear, and a plan you’ll be surprised by how much this one change can transform your work days.

Check out local events to see how you can get involved (there may even be free food and t-shirts along the way). Still not convinced? Here are three reasons why you need to consider participating in this year’s Bike to Work Day.
It’s easy to get lost in the shuffle of large workspaces. Sure, it may seem beneficial to be part of a community of hundreds, maybe even thousands, of people in a huge building with desks as far as the eye can see. It’s natural to think big- with our business, goals, and dreams. But sometimes it is good to think small. Yes, you heard us right. Thinking small can actually help you with those big goals. A good place to start is with your workspace, where a smaller space can lead to a larger amount of support and help for your business!
