New Year, New Goals. 2017 is in the rear view mirror end we can look back on our achievements, our failures, our proudest moments, and our breakdowns. We look forward to a year of getting past what held us back and progressing on.
Are bigger business joining the coworking world? The answer is yes! Since the rise in coworking spaces, we see more and more professionals enjoy the idea of having a flexible work environment as opposed to the corporate environment their firms have provided.
The modern professional is not weighed down by reams of paper, file cabinets, huge desktop computers and massive printers. Today we can sit down nearly anywhere and still be productive. This changes everything about your office environment and the business center/coworking business. Sharing a 10x12 office with another team member would be impossible or unheard of 10 years ago. Today, it's commonplace. Check out how we recently transformed a one person office to a small team room for a new client.
With the rise in co-working spaces, is the traditional four wall office space phasing out? While traditional office spaces offer a quite space for people to work, a co-working space offers much more in terms of growth.
A traditional office space is just a space to sit and work for 8 to 10 hours per day. It offers a quiet space, privacy, and time to get things accomplished. However, the traditional office doesn’t offer the entrepreneur and the modern professional a sense of community and the opportunity to network with like-minded professionals. A coworking environment allows one to work at their own pace, help out your neighbor and make work far more rewarding.
The rise in the amount of co-working spaces popping up across the country means traditional office space may soon become forgotten. Co-working is more than just a trend, it’s a growing industry that helps business owners achieve success!
I heard an interview this year with the great Jimmy Iovine, founder of Interscope Records and Cofounder of Beats Electronics. He described his key to success early in his recording career as ‘being of service.’

As the year comes to an end, most of us start to plan our New Year’s resolutions. Many focus on improving their physical health after the festive period. But what about your mental health? It’s easy to neglect when you’re running your own business. It’s also a dangerous move for freelancers as this way of working is detrimental to your mental health due to long hours and a lack of human interaction.
We are so very pleased and honored to join the Workbar Network. Our partnership will bring tremendous value to our members and enhance our ability to grow our community.
In 2015 I bought my first shared office space business in Hingham, MA where I had been a tenant there for nearly five years.
