Earlier this year Fast Company spoke about community and coworking spaces: Here are a bunch of cowork startups saying the same things about how different they are. The basis of their argument is that to differentiate themselves, coworking spaces emphasize their community. In other words, what sets them a part from the rest is what also makes them the same. But despite the negative connotations, isn't community the beauty of coworking spaces

Planning for your company Christmas party in August may initially seem a bit preemptive, but if you think about it, now is the best time to start.

Spaces, Manila

Starting your own company can be an exciting time, and you may want to go out and get your own office space right away. However, whilst your company is still in its infancy this might not be the best decision, financially or otherwise. Instead, you should consider a coworking space as the homebase for your startup, plus they're 10-30% cheaper than a traditional office. And if companies such as Uber, Eatigo, Zalora, and Booky used coworking spaces, there must be something to them.

As today's technology has developed, and continues to develop, so have our workspaces.

Coworking spaces have, without a doubt, flourished in popularity recently. Deskmag has written about it, Forbes has written about it, and many many more have talked about the growth in the number of flexible, short-term workspaces. But why are they gaining such esteem? To break it down: they're human-centric. As opposed to traditional offices, coworking spaces focus more on hospitality than they do on simply providing real estate. In other words, rather than just offering a desk to come work, these spaces create a community in which digital nomads, entrepreneurs, freelancers, and even MNC's can achieve their business goals.

Laughing Juice, Singapore

Planning an event can be an exciting time, but it can also be overwhelming. In fact, event coordinator made it to the list of most stressful jobs in 2017. Making sure no small detail slips through the cracks or only makes itself known on the day of the event can seem almost impossible. So how do you avoid those Homer Simpson "DOH" moments, or at least minimize them as much as possible (because let's face it, nothing ever goes 100% according to plan 100% of the time)?
