EXACTLY WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF MEMBERS-ONLY COWORKING SPACES LIKE THEHIVE44?
MOTIVATION IMPARTED UPON YOU BY OTHERS? ACTUAL KNOWLEDGE GLEANED FROM FELLOW MEMBERS?
ALEX HILLMAN, THE CO-FOUNDER OF INDY HALL, COWORKING COMMUNITY STATES:
“The biggest benefit from coworking, apart from getting out of the house which is a healthier working habit than not, is the ability to build relationships with the people you work with BEFORE you work with them.
Coworking is a rare opportunity to build valuable, genuine relationships with people without it feeling like “networking”. You can get to know people beyond the basic superficial factors, and get to know things like their interests, their working style and habits, their preferences, and their reliability.
You can also decide if you like spending time with them, a valuable asset when joining forces to work on a project, product, or business.
Once you know this person, you’re more informed going into the relationship side of the business deal and the transactional side of the business can happen smoother, faster, and easier.”
Alex Hillman, has been a mentor of mine since I first began researching the concept of coworking as a business. I have adopted his philosophies of building a successful community and the true meaning of coworking. Building lasting business relationships though coworking.
