The 9-to-5 culture is changing. The national trend is towards small business and freelancing. In 2015, 35% of U.S. workers were freelancers. The nation’s corporate office sector is feeling it. Empty office buildings collect dust as people more and more turn towards making their livings on their own.
Coworking has risen from this national change. People who work out of coworking spaces report that they are more engaged, more motivated, more satisfied, and feel more successful. They network organically and meet new friends. Most importantly, 89% surveyed reported that they were happier in a coworking space. Your profession is a large chunk of your life, so where you do it and who you surround yourself with matters.
