The reality is it can be a big leap, economically and otherwise, to go from working at home to having an office. Coworking spaces not only help in cost sharing but creating a network for users to refer one another and work together. Coworking spaces have been shown to increase productivity, revenue, and happiness for members. A majority of these spaces may be in cities but they are becoming increasingly popular in communities as economic development hubs.
The meetup will take place at Chilly Delight at 12 Main Street in Potsdam. People who work from home, freelancers, traveling sales people, temporary workers, and others who want to meet others like them while getting work done are invited to the event.
“Come for an hour, come for the whole thing. Just bring the work you’d typically do from home or wherever, some business cards, and some enthusiasm to meet other people,” says Ouellette. “If this is successful, we can make it a regular thing. And if this is a legitimate community need, I hope to open a second version of Anchorspace here."
