To many people, the freedom and flexibility of freelancing are incredibly attractive. Whether you want to spend more time with your kids or travel the world, not being tied down to a 9-5 desk job can be a dream. However, many people who set out on their own find that working from the couch isn’t all it’s cracked up to be (especially after more than a few weeks). If you’re loving the freelance lifestyle but missing some of the perks of a traditional office environment, then a shared workspace is perfect for you!
In a shared workspace, you have access to whatever type of office space you need. For a long-term project where you may need to take meetings, get a short-term private office rental. If you are looking for a more casual setting to pop in and out of, go with a coworking desk. This option provides a designated workspace in a more social and collaborative environment. For freelancers who want to get out of their home office full-time, there are long-term private or shared office rentals.
A shared workspace allows you to grow your freelance business without ever switching spaces. You never know what project might come your way, so chose a space that will support any anticipated needs. Let’s say you land a huge client, but they are overseas and you need meeting space. At AdvantEdge Workspaces, you would be able to reserve a meeting room with clear video conferencing services designed for businesses.
Being a freelancer no longer means losing that sense of office community. In a shared workspace, you’ll be surrounded by like-minded professionals, many of whom work solo or run their own businesses. Happy hours, holiday events, and learning lunches are just an example of the programming you will have access to. For those who enjoy socializing but love being their own boss, this type of workspace perfectly balances both.
The number one reason why shared workspaces are perfect for freelancers is because of the support they provide. Working on your own- in a coffee shop, on the couch, in the car- can be exhausting. In a shared office space like AdvantEdge, we are alongside you every step of the way. Our live reception provides customized call answering, mail services, and a professional space to greet any guests. Also, as a workspace client, you’ll have access to our printer center, office supplies, full lounge area, and more.
With amenities, flexibility, and community, a shared workspace helps you reach your full professional potential. Come take your freelancing business to the next level today with AdvantEdge!
