If you haven’t thought about joining a coworking space before, I totally get it. It’s hard to imagine yourself somewhere you have never been, especially if you don’t know anyone. Choosing to join a coworking space is an intimate choice and one that should not be made lightly. As someone who takes forever to make a buying decision, I’m right there with you. It often takes me months or years to decide to go all in and buy or invest in something, including myself.
But when it comes to wanting to take care of ourselves, it is surprisingly easy to say “yes” to the things we know will make us feel good (or we have been told will make us feel good). Things that are tangible like
- SPA treatments
- A new car
- Retail therapy
The intangible things are sometimes the most rewarding and the hardest for us to say yes to. Belonging to a co-working space has intangible benefits that go far beyond just having a place to work. People have been able to
- hire their first employee,
- find new customers,
- but most importantly they are an active part of a community that cares about their well-being and happiness.
Being part of a community like this means that you have access to people who will say yes when you ask for help, will celebrate your wins with you, and we’ll be there when you need a shoulder to cry on and don’t feel like you can go on in your business. If this sounds like something you need in your life, then you probably need co-working in your self care routine.
Don’t take my word for it
