The caffeine connection

Posted on 15. Jun, 2011 by in blog, Coworking

When plugging away at the latest big project, there’s got to be something to break the monotony. Coffee is an almost universal drink that we just can’t shunt from our system.We all crave our caffeine to get us going in the morning, and relish the thought of our next coffee break. This magical elixir also grants us opportunities to bump into coworkers and swap the newest “talk of the town.”

The shared caffeine infusion keeps all the coworkers roused for the next few hours of work. With the comforting companionship of my sturdy (and tall) Citizen Space mug, and my fellow Citizens, I can face the next few hours of value-creating toil. This is what co working is all about. Work can be a tough pill to take, but just the thought of being around like-minded folks (as opposed to being enclosed inside a cubbyhole) makes a world of difference.

Coworking vs. Working from home

Posted on 10. Jun, 2011 by in blog, Coworking

It seems that in most urban centers in the U.S., professionals are coming together to create coworking facilities. This may be because more and more freelancers are realizing the advantages of working in a collaborative, energetic environment. Working from home may sound tempting but many freelancers who have tried working from the comfort of their home know, based on their experience, that it isn’t easy to do because of too many distractions especially if you’ve crossed into the realm of parenthood. Coworking facilities offer a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere without the distractions. Some other advantages of coworking are that collaboration, camaraderie and the inevitability of hot coffee and enjoyable snacks.
