Small business owners, entrepreneurs, and sales professionals often have to travel for business. But whether you’re flying and staying in hotels or driving endless miles to get the job done, you simply can’t work at peak efficiency without a dedicated workspace. Ideally, you’d have an office in every city, but that’s just not practical or affordable. Fortunately, there’s a simple solution that addresses every concern—and it might just help you get more done during work hours and relax a little bit more at the end of the day.
What is this magic solution, you say? It’s something you already know about but may not have considered. For anybody who’s ever donebusiness out of town, a coworking membership can help fill the gaps.
Today, we’ll look at how coworking improves work for business travelers.
Whether you’re working out of your car, hotel room, or a café when you’re on the road, chances are you’re not giving your work the attention it deserves. Staying cooped up in your vehicle for hours at a time is hard on your back, and you’ll probably go home in a world of pain. Comfort is critical when you’re working long hours, and a coworking facility provides a variety of workspace configurations to suit your style. You won’t have the distractions you would have to deal with in a public place, and you’ll have all the amenities you could possibly need at your fingertips, so you’ll undoubtedly be more productive.
There’s a lot of science behind the idea that you should not work where you sleep. When you do, your brain doesn’t wind down at the end of the day as it associates the environment with productivity. If you’re working from your hotel room, you might also be tempted to relax, nap, or otherwise waste time in the middle of the workday, which presents another barrier to getting things done. When you use a coworking facility, you can separate work and your sleep space, creating psychological boundaries that allow you to shed your work anxiety before you turn in.
Let’s face it – when you conduct meetings in a café or your hotel, it’s just not as professional or private as it would be if you were in a dedicated meeting room. The ambient noise in the room might cause you to get distracted or miss a critical point in the conversation. Coworking spaces offer meeting rooms on demand, so you can really focus on who you’re meeting with and what you’re trying to accomplish.
You don’t always have access to the best internet, Wi-Fi, and office machines when you’re on the road. Many hotels have business centers, but you can never be 100% certain that their equipment is working properly or will suit your needs. A coworking space provides business-grade internet and state-of-the-art office equipment, and there’s always someone on hand to help.
If you’re unsure how often you’ll need to use your coworking membership, Towerview offers affordable day passes that give you access to the full suite of amenities when you need them. Need more info? We’re always here for you! Reach out today, and let’s talk about how we can help.
