Leaving behind traditional employment is becoming increasingly normal, but it doesn't seem that way. The moment you decide to strike out on your own, you become responsible for everything. You don't necessarily have a lot of help, or people to bounce things off of. To forge your own path is a great thing, but doing it alone can be hard.
Good news: there's a movement for that. It's called coworking, and since 2005 it's been growing exponentially as more and more independent workers find new ways to gather. The premise is simple: instead of working in isolation in our homes or in coffee shops among strangers, we gather with intention in environments that are supportive to us getting to know each other while we work.
While having a space to work in is a critical component to the process, we recognize that we're gathering not because we need space, but because we want to be around people we get along with. While that could happen anywhere, coworking spaces provide a consistent and reliable place you can count on to welcome you with open arms any time.
Coworking gives us a way to work on our own things while still feeling like we're part of something bigger than ourselves. Feeling like you can commute to a place where people you know will be working and excited to see you can be a really, really good feeling. By forming communities around our shared needs, we create opportunities to help each other. Someone else's weakness is another's strength; together we are far more than the sum of our parts.
If you're just using a coworking space as a workspace, you're missing out on the essence of what makes coworking so special. Coworking is a proven machine for helping people grow their businesses and their personal relationships. It's entirely a matter of how much you're willing to put into it. To that end, every member of New Work City has the opportunity to participate in any of the following:
Memberships are month-to-month and open to all. You can sign up or cancel at anytime. There are no deposits or extra charges for anything, except if you need to rent our event space or a larger locker.
