Digital nomading has become the new normal as technology advances every day and the way to be successful is such a fast paced technological world is coworking spaces. As a digital nomad there is the inherent freedom to work from anywhere, but that doesn’t mean all workspaces are the best for you. There are many options for the remote worker from public coffee shops to libraries but these spaces don't take into consideration your personal and professional needs. Coffee shops have the social pressure not to stay too long and often lack necessary resources such as outlets, fast wifi and even bathrooms. Similarly, libraries have inflexible hours, don’t allow for much noise and don’t allow food or drink, limiting productivity. This is why coworking spaces have been on the rise as they provide all the resources needed for a digital nomad.
Below are 10 reasons why you should work from a coworking space:

a. Due to the sense of community, collaboration, learning and sustainability, a work facade is no longer needed, and a person's work becomes more meaningful as they no longer face the competition they would in a traditional office setting. Members work identity becomes stronger as everyone around them is also working on their own projects, motivating individual success.
