How to make your coworking experience work!

Posted on 12. Sep, 2011 by in blog, Coworking, Las Vegas, San Jose, SOMA

You may be considering abandoning your bathrobe and opt to start coworking with other humans.

To make the best out of your co working endeavor, here’s a few of tips you may need.

1.  Examine your options

Before you pin down your choice, scope out the other options. There are several types of coworking spaces atmosphere and interaction with members varies at each space. Make sure you pick out what you think is best suited to your needs.

2. Make yourself known

Introducing yourself may feel like you’re stepping out of your personal boundaries but puts off the feeling of being awkward around others and evokes an aura of camaraderie.

3.  Know your coworkers further

Take interest in what they do and spend time to converse and socialize. Shake off that shyness.

4. Join Forces

Coworking is all about collaboration. Do not have second thoughts about letting your thoughts and ideas out.

5. You can also retreat to your own harbor of silence

Well, you certainly need to work apart from all that socializing. If you need some concentration, you can opt to seclude your ears and shut it off from any form of distraction with one of those cool pairs of Beats by Dre headphones and some cool music.
