17 Reasons Why You’d Love Coworking, Solopreneur!

Could I actually be in a coworking community? That’s the question I pose to you and to myself. As an solopreneur and communications skills expert, I’m all for collaborating with like-minded entrepreneurs. To paraphrase that old saying, ‘many heads are better than one’.

For those who might not know, coworking is where entrepreneurs and others with portable businesses get together to work because it improves their productivity and gives them lasting relationships and connections that help them grow personally and professionally.

I started my first business in a workspace facility which is similar but different. You get a space to work but it’s far less community based.  So, I understand that experience.  What I’m curious about is coworking.  What’s it like?

Doing a bit of research, I came across a number of traits, beliefs, skills that can make you a good candidate to be  part of a coworking community.  Here’s my list.  Please add your thoughts and ideas to the comments.
