Working from home is the dream, right? Maybe at first – but after months and months of working from the couch + living in what you’ve started to call “sweatpants chic,” it can get old (believe it or not). Eventually you find yourself getting all dressed up for the smallest of errands because you desperately feel the need to wear anything other than sweatpants and make small talk with the barista for fifteen minutes because the only person you’ve talked to all day is your dog.

What’s the solution to prevent getting cabin fever? Coworking spaces.
Coworking spaces encourage collaboration over competition as members typically come from different companies, ventures + projects – and thus do not fall to standard office politics. The community acts as a springboard for creativity, allowing people to participate + learn – overall developing a greater sense of pride in their projects.
So if you need a professional space, a sounding board, or if you just need to get out of the house, here are a few affordable office sharing opportunities around town.
Endeavor, 1 N. Main St., fourth floor
Amenities include meeting rooms, all the necessary ‘machines’ (print, copy, scan, fax, and – the most important – coffee), events, plus a gym + showers. If you need somewhere for just the day, they also have Day Passes for $25.
Atlas Local, 25 Draper St.
The first Friday of every month they have Zero Day – where they stop working for half of the day. All of their membership options come with a one year license (aka locks in your membership price).
