Small Talk as a selling point.
“It’s so weird, to have small talk be the selling point of anything.” For Austin Pierce, (writer/author) there are plenty of opportunities for small talk around the water cooler. When Austin is in between projects or needs to clear his head. There is always someone to have a quick chat with before starting on his next project.
He says having affordable office space where he can work in a distraction-free environment and actually go home at the end of the day is a big plus. Working around other people adds a level of peer pressure which aides in a productive work day.
Fellow coworkers provide different perspectives as well. You can sharpen your social skills around the cooler as well as perfect your elevator pitch to new members.
Working remotely beats having to work at home all alone or in a traditional office with walls and not seeing anyone all day. For about $2 a day you can work at Springboard from 9:00 – 5:00. You can visit with strangers or you can visit with coworking members who quickly become your friends at Springboard.
