On your own but not alone

Ever find yourself trying to be an entrepreneur but also trying to escape from the kids – or being distracted by the unpredictable noise around your table at Starbucks?  You might want to try “CoWorking.” 

This is one of the hot new terms accounting for people wanting to work not from home and not from an office is CoWorking. People who struggle with watching Oprah or playing Xbox in the middle of the afternoon may find that a shared office space is just what you need.

The term just made it into Wikipedia and is defined thus:  Coworking is the social gathering of a group of people, who are still working independently, but who share values and who are interested in the synergy that can happen from working with talented people in the same space.  Blogs, social networks and other support systems are being formed around this concept. 

Sole proprietors, freelancers, artists, consultants and other independent workers are finding refuge in coworking environments with open office areas but dedicated work space, high-speed internet, a kitchenette and maybe even printer and fax machine. Rates range from $15 a day to $500 a month for full 24/hour access. Check it out here – CoWorking Spaces or just Google your city with the word “coworking.”

    This is so awesome! I just read about this a couple of days ago. When I was in ministry, the hardest part was the home office, and making sure the boundaries were maintained. I want to be a good Daddy, but…I would often end up feeling guilty. This seems like a great opportunity.
