dustry. You might have heard some people say “it is like having your own Google office.” And it can be.


Still having problems to understand the difference of Coworking and co-working?

If you’re talking to a stranger: “It’s a place for people to work on their own thing, side by side in camaraderie.”


If you’re explaining it to your kids: “Work is kind of like school: it can be hard, but it can also be fun if you have good friends—and swings.”


If you’re explaining it to your archenemy: “I work from a place that has Friday drinks and a naptime space. How’s that cubicle looking?”


If you’re explaining it to a business person: “It’s a chance to have the freedom of working from home, the facilities of a real office, plus a social atmosphere and sense of community.”


If you’re explaining it to a long-time freelancer: “It’s a place where we work together and talk to each other, rather than work alone and talk to our pets.”


If you’re talking to someone else who works from a coworking space: “It’s awesome.” “I know, right?”


If you’re explaining it to someone in a shared office: “I have everything you have but I get to talk to the people next to me and have a great time. I’m probably also paying less.”


If you’re explaining it to someone who just doesn’t get it: “It’s kind of like getting a gym membership but instead of treadmills you get an awesome office, and instead of working on your body you work on your business.”


If you’re explaining it to your mom: “Rather than camping out in coffee shops or being alone at home I now work in a supportive environment full of people who are also working hard, so I have a helpful community and enjoy my day more. Trust me, it’s better than a ‘job’ job.”


If you’re explaining it to your boss: “It will make me a better worker. And, no, of course I won’t spend all of my time in the hammocks or playing ping pong…”


If you’re talking to someone who really needs to get out of the house and join us: “Come and work with us.”


If you’re talking to a tea or coffee addict:

Twitch, and say, “I drink coffee and tea all day. And it’s free.”
