My Savvy Move to a Co-working Space

If you've followed me for a while, then you know that I love all things Co-working related. Co-working is defined as the use of an office or work environment by people who are self-employed or work for different employers. The Charlotte area is home to several Co-working spaces, and they have been well received by small business owners who want to work in an innovative environment.

One of my goals for 2015 was to find a co-working space for me and my business. It took a while, but I did find an excellent space called Hygge (pronounced HYOOguh).  Hygge means cozy, and I can honestly say the Hygge Co-working space that I call home is a cozy, friendly, creative environment. It’s a beautiful open space that encourages creativity and ideas.

Have you visited a Co-working space? If not, I think you should. Many spaces have free days or day passes that you can try. Co-working is not for everyone, but I do think everyone should try it at least once. You never know, you may fall in love with it just like I did. :-)
