It’s hard not to notice that coworking is becoming more and more of a trend in big cities. You may find yourself wondering what the hype is all about and we figured we’d help by breaking it down for you!
Coworking by definition is “the use of an office or other working environment by people who are self-employed or working for different employers, typically so as to share equipment, ideas, and knowledge. ‘the whole idea of coworking is to bring bright, creative people together and let the ideas collide’”.
So what does that mean in reality? If you work from home, you know the struggle of maintaining full focus. There’s constantly something that needs to be done around the house that you’ve got in the back of your mind or maybe you’ve got a furry friend that you can’t help but want to hang out with. On top of that, it can be rather lonely working for yourself. That’s where coworking comes into play.
We’ll start with what we call a Flex Membership. Maybe you’re a photographer who just needs a creative space to knock out some edits and client meetings? Or maybe you’re a small business owner who needs somewhere to come in and do day to day tasks without the distraction of your store front? You could even be a Social Media Manager or Blogger and just need a space to crank out this month’s posting schedule. This is the perfect way for you to dip your feet into coworking and see if it’s what you’ve been lacking.
With a flex membership you have full access to The Mill’s meeting rooms, phone rooms, and common areas. Membership fees include free WiFi, Conference Room time, Enderly Coffee Co. brewed fresh daily, snacks, and member networking events. All of these things provide you the perfect space to grow your business. You get to enjoy having a space to hold client meetings and get your work done without having to foot the bill for the office space, utilities, etc.
Not only does this provide you with a more structured environment to run your business, it expands your network! Being a boutique coworking space means that we are much smaller in size which ultimately leads to a tight knit community of passionate workers looking to all achieve the same goal. Our member events, like Breakfast Breakdown, provide the perfect chance for you to hear what other business owners may be struggling with and also get their advice on experiences they might have had that you’re experiencing now (or possibly just the chance to make some really great friends).
