One of the biggest appeals of starting your own business is escaping from the rat race and the urban jungle, and giving yourself the freedom to work where and when you want. The evolution of the job market has made it more possible than ever for individuals to work remotely, setting up their laptops in coffee shops around the world in search of a more flexible work environment. However, with little structure and no accountability, remote workers quickly started searching for more effective workspaces, hence the creation of coworking spaces. Coworking spaces provide a professional yet relaxed environment; one that is open to collaboration with other similarly-minded individuals, but still provide complete autonomy and flexibility.
