Read This Before Joining a Co-Working Space

We spent some of our early months of being a business in a communal workspace. While there were many benefits (printing/sanitation being taken care of was so lovely), I wish I understood and thought about the limitations of the client's reactions when they met us at the coworking space. For smaller and newer businesses, they know the benefits of us working out of there - we could save on rent, and pass those savings onto them. But more traditional, old-school businesses, could be worried about a couple of people working in a place where they don't even need to pay months ahead for rent. Over time, we learned to emphasize our anchors in our city, so that these clients would understand we were here for good. But for those thinking about coworking spaces, I highly recommend remembering to ensure your clients know this is likely temporary til you make a permanent home for yourself.
