What were you doing in late 2018?
I was looking for a comfortable shared space to work from. Somewhere close to home and affordable.
Like many freelancers and digital nomads, I searched for the nearest coworking space.
Which was 45 minutes away.
Hmmm. Thank you, but no.
I looked into leasing a small office locally. After dying of shock from price tag on that option (side note: when did commercial property in country towns get so expensive?!), I put my creative thinking hat on. For just over twice the price of that small office, I could set up a fabulous place to work AND create a business resource for Cessnock.
In 2019, I found the most affordable and easily accessible building I could and opened The CoWork Space.
My goal was to create as positive a workplace as possible. We’ve all experienced a less than ideal work environment.
I wanted future CoWorkers to feel instantly relaxed when they stepped through the doors. Almost like coming home, minus distractions and interruptions.
So that is what you’ll find. A great place to dig into whatever project you’re working on. For me, it is my ideal office – lots of light, plants, and enough space to accommodate study, running a small business and various plans for world domination… I mean, social innovation.
The fabulous folk who share this space each contribute to the relaxed shared-house vibe by keeping it positive and maintaining great workflow.
Trust me. Productivity IS catching!! Working alongside other people is a great boost to my own focus and motivation.
The last thing I’ll mention is the emphasis on recycling, energy efficiency and waste reduction. From general recycling options to the compost bin, the option to use cloth hand towels or paper towels, and the Terracycle collection tubs for specific recyclables.
Think of The CoWork Space as a mini-business hub set up by your socially conscious aunt. A lovely space where you can settle in and enjoy your workdays… sustainably.
