What's Buzzing At Home..
Good Afternoon world.com! Figured this would be great topic to write on simply because its my day off from the "Part-time" job. (Emphasis on "Part-time") but im still working on 3 other projects today for 3 different companies. This is an everyday thing now, I dont just have 1 job. Aside from the marketing postion, Im also an audio engineer, freelance marketing consultant to local businesses, barista & composer. Some might call these "Side gigs" but to me they are just ways to pay bills and acquire things that I want/need. Most of these jobs are done at home which can be a plus but even working at home can be overwhelming. There's no real structure or real interaction with the real world and can be very distracting. Sure this can be a "good thing" to most but it can get annoying after a while and can affect your work productivity. This might be the reason why people spend hours at starbucks or a local park now that I think about it.. Well it turns out that i'm not the only one with this problem and somewhere out there their is a group of people with solutions.. (Who would've thought!). Weellll.... As i was distracting myself from work i came across a Facebook page for a company called "B:Hive Bridgeport". The logo seemed like a "2013" logo for a new savvy tech company who is owned by a new generation of world changers so i obviously clicked the link. It turns out that this was a company asking people to reserve a spot for something that they wouldn't explain.. (HAHA! GENIUS! CREATIVE & made me curious! ) so I reserved my spot and did some research on it. Well it turns out that they might be "Co-Working" space! Ive never heard of "co-working" til 15 minutes ago so bare with me as i find a wiki page and copy & paste the definition.... (2 minutes later) .....
"Coworking is a style of work that involves a shared working environment, often an office, and independent activity. Unlike in a typical office environment, those coworking are usually not employed by the same organization. Typically it is attractive to work-at-home professionals, independent contractors, or people who travel frequently who end up working in relative isolation. Coworking is also the social gathering of a group of people who are still working independently, but who share values, and who are interested in the synergy that can happen from working with like-minded talented people in the same space." (Taken from wikipedia)
