The concept of co-working is on a massive global growth curve, as the number of people working for themselves increases at the same rate.
Within 7-10 years many people are predicting, that in the developed world, self-employment will be the norm.
The challenge now is that work is no longer a place, it is an activity that you can do anywhere.
However, running your own business often means looking closely at every single outlay of cash and thus having your own office is not realistic. In addition it isn’t needed.
Working at home is a cost effective option, but a risky one, as you cut yourself of from the very thing you need to make your business a success – that’s community.
Community of potential customers, future suppliers, partners, people to share ideas with and just someone to motivate you when you need it.
That is why people are choosing co-working not to have a desk to work from, but to have a community to work within.
