We’re here to help you plan for the future of work. Total the type below and a member of our group will get in contact to read more about your work environment needs.
This is my last weekend here in New york city City. It’s presently Saturday, and I’m currently trying to multi-task, and get access to my office. Which is at WeWork based out of New York city about a block away from Times Square. I believe in today’s episode, what we’re going to do, is gon na have a little sit down, right there. But I believe prior to I do go and sit down there, given that it is a Saturday and there is nobody else here. Nobody else here at all. Ahhh, I think it’s most likely good for us to do a little trip of this coworking space, and give you a little bit of an insight regarding why I like coworking areas, a lot. So let’s start over here, at the treats area. Right, so you have actually got a self-serve treat location over here. You got yer Cokes. You got yer Red Bulls. All self-serve which is really, really cool. Alrighty, and over here we have actually filtered water which is enjoyable. Throughout the week they generally have a flavoured water thing set over here which is cool. All this is limitless so we can have complimentary espresso, which is what you desire, that’s what you’re into. Otherwise they have actually got drip coffee over here. All the facilities right, all the facilities. And then we’ve got the lunch area here. Look after the environment, make certain you recycle. You have actually got all the coworking spaces over here, which is actually cool. This pumps throughout the week. We have actually also got mad, amazing views out here. Not a bad view, not the best day, however not a bad view still. And after that we have actually got these little cubicles, which are likewise enjoyable to operate in. And this is generally, yeah the coworking area. We have actually got high speed WiFi internet all over, we have actually likewise got the security cameras up all over in here which is also truly fun, due to the fact that if you’ve got a great deal of expensive equipment like I do, and you’ve also got, like,
I’m loading a lot into this knapsack. Right, like a lot into this knapsack. So if you have actually got a great deal of pricey devices, and you are working in a coworking space, it is nice to know that we’ve got all of this security around. I do what to go out, and go for a wander, or go on an adventure throughout the day, I’m able to leave all of my things here, conserve and sound without any tension or worry about it going missing out on. You know what I suggest? This is Floor 12. Let’s reveal us the rest of this office space. And this is the same office space that I worked out of in 2017 when I lived here for the summer. Exactly the same office space. An amazing group of people, everybody that I’ve satisfied through the WeWork community’s been absolutely awesome, and all the staff here are amazing. So, let’s continue. All in here are the private offices. So you can either get a private office, or you can simply do the hot-desk, coworking desk like I’ve done. Once again, just all private offices through here. Absolutely nothing actually too much to see. Got the printer area, and fixed location down here. One thing that I simulate, and like I really, truly enjoy this, and it’s likewise a feature that Flux, the coworking space that I work out of in Perth, on St Georges Balcony, likewise has, they’ve got their own version of this. And these are private little telephone booths slash with deep work booths, right. You basically you can get in here, close the door. You have actually got a little light, and you have actually got USB battery charger. I have actually done numerous, numerous prior to WiFi phone calls here in this cubicle or in one of these booths. Being here it’s just an excellent way to, if you wan na work on something that’s truly private, or if you wan na to have a private discussion, or if you wan na just work in a deep work area with no diversions, these are the places to work. Carrying on. More personal offices. And then the other cool thing is, you’ve got these conference room Wework Grand Rapids
which are up in here, and also up there. And this continues, it’s generally the same type of layout on this flooring as it is upstairs. And you can work with these private meeting spaces out as part of the credit you get when you sign up for the office space. Now in terms of expense, I believe I paid, and fix me if I’m wrong but I think, from memory, I paid about 550 U.S. dollars for a months worth of coworking space here, that includes, use of the printer, use of the internet, use of security, 24 7 access to the coworking area. And look, in regards to value for cash- I’m gon na set this down ’cause my arm hurts, it’s a heavy cam. Sorry, in terms of value for money it’s simply, for me, having the ability to just roll into a city, pick up where I ended, pay-as-you-go, and it’s the same thing with Flux back in Perth. In regards to coworking, for me the capability to be able to roll into a city, pick up where you left off, or even roll into a brand-new city, get set-up with a coworking space, which is safe and secure, which has truly fast web, which has all the features that you need, therefore much more, with a lot of fantastic people and a fantastic community. It’s simply, absolutely like it. For a digital wanderer, for digital entrepreneurs, and also for business owners that remain in that solo phase. Who’re just in terms of that start-up stage, and they do not wan na work from house anymore. Since appearance, I have actually worked from house prior to and you can get a bit lonely, and you can get a little cabin fever. Coworking spaces are a really, truly, versatile way for you to be able to satisfy new people, network. Work in an area which is gotten rid of from your house, without spending too much money. And likewise without requiring to worry about that fixed commitment. And ABC in Perth actually interviewed me about this a week or 2 back, and I’ll leave a link to that short article possibly’ll, whoop. ABC in fact interviewed me about why I enjoy coworking areas so much a couple of weeks ago. If you’re interested go and inspect that out. And prior to we end the chat, I think what I’m gon na leave you with is among my preferred, favourite, includes about this location. Which is, erm, it’s over here, let’s go. Let’s go. We’ll start, we’ll start here. Get one of these. Among these ones. Ooooh, they’re tapped. They’re tapped. Usually throughout the week, there is unrestricted totally free beer on tap here. Today, looks like it’s a no-winner (wawhow music) like I said earlier. Today’s a bit sad, since it is my final Saturday, my final weekend here in New york city City. And I do fly house to Perth on Tuesday. 33 hour commute, anticipating that. (bell rings) However it is bitter-sweet, like I am actually thrilled go home, back to Perth. I’m actually delighted to overtake my friends, my family, and return into the grind, and start making relocations, and simply getting the little things done. But I’m also actually sad that I’m leaving among my favourite places in the world, and leaving some of my preferred people in the world. So, yeah. Bitter-sweet is the best way I would explain how I feel today. Extremely bitter-sweet. Look that there concludes this episode of the blog. I’m gon na go ahead and cue the explosion, however prior to we do that, if you are not currently subscribed, go ahead and hit the Subscribe button. I drop in videos every single Thursday, 6 a.m Pacific, 9 a.m Eastern, 9 p.m Australian Western Standard Time Zone. And like I did state earlier, I am flying back to Perth on Tuesday. It’s most likely going to be a one-week hiatus in terms of the uploads, since you’ve constantly got to travel, and also get over jet-lag. When Paul gets jet-lag, due to the fact that we all know what happens. Um-um, um-um, um-um. Anyhow, thank you a lot for seeing, I actually do value it and, yeah, I’ll see you next Thursday.
