Home Office vs. Cafes vs. Coworking Spaces
Trevor here with eCommerce Paradise.
Today's episode is about home offices versus cafes versus coworking spaces - which one is best to work in?
In my opinion, you should have a mix of all three work situations in your life. I'm going to go over my pros and cons of each place as a workspace.
For me, a home office is the best because it's the most secluded atmosphere. We are here in our less than five dollar apartment in Bangkok, Thailand. It's a pretty chill studio apartment, nothing too crazy, really simple and affordable. Another good thing about home offices is you have a consistent Wi-Fi connection. You don't have to log into Wi-Fi codes and have other people taking up all the bandwidth. I really like that you can have a quiet and secluded atmosphere to have your work done in peace. I also like the idea that you can take your clothes off or just be in your pajamas to work.
Now, let's go to café.
Cafés are cool. Cafés have a creative atmosphere because of the people around you. You really want to work more, and if there happens to be a chance that you see someone you know, you can hang out with them. It's a good way to get your creative mind going and get more motivation to get more work done.
As much as their good points, cafes also have their downsides. Café Wi-Fi can be spotty and unpredictable. People can be noisy around you, which could be distracting, especially when many people walk around.
I mean, I like to be around people, and working around other people feels good, and it's exciting, but some people may not like it.
Coworking spaces are a little in between a home office and a café. Coworking spaces are generally quiet places like a library, but they can have, like a café, people walking and working around you. With coworking space, people are always working on the computer and laptop to work on running their business or doing some freelance work.
Coworking spaces in Thailand are usually filled with many foreigners from all over the world. They can average from one hundred dollars to two hundred dollars a month. You can also buy a day pass or weekly passes.
There's one coworking space that I really like in Chiang Mai. It's called Open Space on the East Gate. There's also one on the west side of the Nimon area.
Coworking spaces are great, and it's a good place to get an office atmosphere. It's nice when you have events at the coworking space so you can do networking. Networking is one of the main benefits of going to a coworking space, especially if you're an entrepreneur. Usually, they have events where people come in and do speeches. You can sign up for that and learn a lot that way.
Have a good mix in your life.
