12 Reasons to Ditch the Home Office and Invest in a Coworking Membership
If you’re a permanently remote worker, you may have realized that working from home has its advantages and drawbacks. If you’re struggling to stay productive and focused at home, consider a coworking membership. Here are 12 reasons to ditch your home office in 2023.
1. Too Many Distractions . . .
Being productive with household chores comes at the expense of being productive at work. Kids and pets can be the source of distractions, too. At The Social, you can leave these distractions at home and get to work.
2. . . . and Temptations
At home, temptations stare you in the face left and right. It takes a lot of self-discipline to say no to that post-lunch nap or TV show. Get out of the house and find your focus with a coworking membership.
3. Lack of Meeting Space
If your entire team is remote, you don’t have an office you can go into. Coffeeshops are noisy, smelly, and can get expensive. Coworking spaces like The Social offer flexible, quiet meeting spaces.
4. The Coworkers Are Too Demanding
Kids and pets can be demanding. While caring for kids and pets is rewarding and necessary, it does get in the way of your productivity at work. Sometimes, the best solution is to find child or pet care so you can get to work.
5. You Spend Your Days Alone
Being the only adult in the room has long plagued people who work from home. Socializing with other people helps your mental health. Even being in the same room as other people while you work can help. At The Social, there’s always someone else hanging around or getting to work.
6. Your Prospects Don’t Live with You
Your prospects aren’t at home with you, but they may be sitting next to you at The Social. There are dozens of stories of members finding their next biggest clients right here in our Rogers, Minnesota, coworking space.
7. Slow Internet and No Business Tools
A slow internet connection or non-functioning printer can put a damper on your day. At The Social, we have lightning-fast, secure WiFi and a business suite with a printer, scanner, and fax machine.
8. Drinks and Snacks Are Limited
If you’ve worked from home for any length of time, then you’re probably familiar with the desperate peanut butter-on-a-spoon lunch routine. Not exactly productivity fuel, is it? At The Social, we offer refreshments at our beverage bar and encourage members to bring in snacks.
9. Undedicated Workspaces
One of the major disadvantages of working from home is lack of suitable workspace. Many people have created offices in spare bedrooms, dens, dining rooms, garages, or dark and musty basements. There’s a better way, and it’s at The Social.
10. Lack of Inspiration
Being around other productive people can inspire productivity. Being around other creative people can inspire creativity. The Social buzzes with happy, focused activity. Honestly, it’s inspiring.
11. No Flexible Workspace
At the office, you spend a few hours at your desk, then meet coworkers in a conference room, at the cafeteria, or down on the couches in the lounge. Home lacks these flexible workspaces. At The Social, you can set up at one of our café tables or reserve one of our offices.
12. There’s No Arnold
We’ve got Arnold Schwarzenegger and you don’t. Simple as that.
Access to a more productive remote workspace starts at just $99 a month. Schedule your tour of The Social today.
