You thrive on having people around you, discussing different topics, and relish the opportunity to network with those next to you - even if it can get too much sometimes, you know that in the end the benefits outweigh the costs. On the most basic level, these spaces promote a fast-paced, creative, and collaborative environment that push you out of your comfort zone.
You still need and want the privacy of a traditional office but maybe you don't have the spare capital to spend on long-term leases. So short-term private offices, fully-furnished and ready for you to come in and work, are the solution - plus, you'll still be able to network with people from different industries.
You still prefer to work at home, or maybe you work remotely, but you need a trustworthy business address that shows your clients and your partners that you're serious. Virtual offices will provide you all of the business needs of a serviced office without a physical space - including call handling and mail handling.
Maybe you're not quite ready yet for work life, or you haven't figured out what you want to do just yet, and that's completely fine. We've all been there. (insert cheesey cat poster with the quote "hang in there") Or maybe you've got everything sorted out and you're just laughing along with us.
