Coworking Space or Coffee Shop for Freelancer
With the specific characteristics of the job, the freelancer does not choose the office as a place to work. We often see them visit coffee shops, Coworking Space locations, etc. So which is the right choice and is appreciated by many freelancers?
Difference between Coworking Space and Coffee shop
The first difference is about space. For comparison, coffee shops have their unique designs, many other styles and are more focused on investment than Coworking Spaces. However, it will be easy to be distracted by the surrounding customers, uncontrollable music, noise and even the need for private space are not available at the cafe. Although Coworking Space exists, not every location is invested much in the design, but the advantage is in dividing it into many different spaces, both public and private spaces with separate utilities.
One point that freelancers often pay more attention to is the issue of time. Choosing a coffee shop, many freelancers are uncomfortable because they depend a lot on the opening and closing hours of the cafe. However, there are many models of Coworking Space that are open and operating 24/24, becoming the choice of freelancers. Especially for programmers or designers… late evening or nighttime is a quiet time to help them work through and focus more.
Finally, about the cost of using both a Coworking Space and a coffee shop. It’s not too difficult to compare and see, a cup of coffee usually costs from 30,000 VND or even more and this cost depends on how “luxurious, genuine, smooth” the space is. While, coming to Coworking Space, the average price is slightly higher than what you pay for a cup of coffee, but in return, you get free water, tea, coffee, use wifi without worrying about slowness or lag, … in general, there are more facilities suitable for freelancers than at a coffee shop.
Let Freelancer work effectively at Coworking Space
If you find that the working environment at the coffee shop makes you unhappy for any reason, then freelancers should try the working environment at Coworking Space.
Working effectively with the environment is only when you adapt and are satisfied with the space around you. However, it should be understood that freelancers choose Coworking Space to have a more comfortable working space and time to help improve creativity and work productivity but still have full facilities like an office. While the Coffee shop is usually for entertainment, lazing after a tiring working time.
Besides, it is not uncommon for freelancers to choose a coffee shop as a place to meet partners and customers to work every day. But with Coworking Space, the space is more professional but at the same time, you will likely find partners, customers, and even colleagues who are also working in the same space as you. Sharing and exchanging work and life problems is also a way to increase work efficiency and reduce stress.
