Entrepreneurship is a very long and arduous journey along which thousands of people traverse daily. This journey has its highs and its lows and more often than not, the lows can get really hard to deal with. On top of this, an entrepreneur is often alone at the top of his business and lacks genuine people who he can turn to for advice.
In a way, coworking eases some of the difficulties of this journey. When someone works out of a coworking space, they never feel alone as they are surrounded by a variety of people. Amongst these very coworkers, the person could find friends who he can bond with, experienced people who can give valuable guidance and professionals who can help him run the business smoothly.
Simply said, the plug and play model of coworking provides a hassle free and affordable solution to social isolation and fragmented networking. There are low up-front costs and zero hidden costs. There are many added perks in the form of support staff, high speed Wi-Fi and access to refreshments. All these help improve the working environment of an entrepreneur and allow him to focus solely on his core business model.
Loneliness is a real issue. According to the Harvard Business Review, over half of all the CEO’s feel lonely and unsupported at work and this hampers their performance. Therefore, it is important to develop work-life balance in form of proper support groups and social relationships to stay cognitively healthy and sound.
At CoKarya, we have always encouraged our coworkers to bond with one another. This way, they can help each other grow and at the same time make office life a little less boring. As far as entrepreneurs are concerned, we fully support them in every way possible with our own team always being available to help them find the necessary support.
