At first, solopreneurs and work-from-home professionals feel a huge amount of freedom in not being tied to a traditional office. There’s no stuffy dress code, total flexibility in hours, and a feeling of personal control you may have never experienced before
But day by day, all kinds of difficult business-related issues crop up in this situation. What happens when you have equipment difficulties you can’t solve? What if you need a professional place to meet a client, and your living room doesn’t fit the bill? What if you simply can’t focus? What if, deep down, you’re lonely?
Victory Workspace offers a one-stop solution to these common problems. Today’s 1.2 million coworkers are taking advantage of an array of benefits: a quiet workspace, a receptionist, IT and communications support, meeting places, and a social hub. Here’s a closer look at how coworking can be the all-in-one-solution you need.
It’s a Home Base
One of the biggest and most immediate benefits of coworking is that it provides a home base for your business. This is a huge relief for people who have spent months or years hopping from coffee shop to coffee shop, trying to focus on work.
Have mail sent to the coworking space and use it as your business address. All communications will be held for you in a secure place, and you can check in as frequently or rarely as needed.
Coworking also offers much-needed meeting space whenever you need it. The environment is stylish and professional, with plenty of room for parking. You’ll always feel confident inviting a client to meet up in person.
It Provides Professional Support
When you cowork, you instantly have a full community of supporters cheering you on. A receptionist can provide assistance with day-to-day communications needs. Coworking colleagues are there for chats and inspiration. If you need help with equipment or advice about conquering IT challenges, someone is always on hand.
Small business owners and solopreneurs find that this level of support rounds out their business and puts their mind at ease. They can always present a professional image to clients, even during their busiest and most stressful times.
It Serves as a Social Hub
Solo workers often struggle with feelings of isolation and loneliness. These emotions can sap your energy and hold you back from achieving your professional goals
Coworking provides a social outlet and a place to feel connected to others. In fact, there’s solid research showing the mental benefits of coworking.
- The National Institutes of Health calls coworking an important source of social support for independent professionals after two studies showed their positive effects on the emotional health of American workers.
- Compared to people who work alone, coworkers feel greater performance satisfaction, even when they are under intense time pressure.
- Just working near other people – even when you don’t speak to them – has an inspirational effect called “positive spillover.”
All of this positive energy provides a big wave of fresh inspiration whenever you need it. Whenever you’ve spent too many hours working solo at your workstation, you can walk away, enter a communal area, and connect with other like-minded people.
It’s a One-Stop Solution
Best of all, coworking provides a comprehensive solution that allows you to simply pay a single membership fee and solve many of your businesses needs all at once. Instead of renting space, paying utility bills, hiring a cleaning crew, dealing with repairs, and on and on, Victory Workspace handles it all for you.
