It has been estimated that the total number of co-working members worldwide will reach 5.1 million people by 2022, from 1.74 million in 2017. A new trend is quietly changing the co-working landscape in recent years: women-only co-working spaces are slowly on the rise. Our lifestyles are becoming more demanding and the need for flexibility is imperative to make sure the ladies and just sit down and get things done. Frustrated mothers requesting for fewer hours at a traditional office has led them to work from a co-working space.
A female-centric co-working space can be just what these ladies require more flexibility and more of an entrepreneurial push. Women want to be in control of their hours. Imagine the ideal female-centric co-working space that offers your childminding facilities, where you can also do yoga, and have a productive day at the same time, giving you the perfect home – work balance.
So what exactly are the other benefits of a female-centric co-working space, and why are they on the rise?
You Collaborate with Other Females in a Co-Working Environment
Just because you work by yourself does not mean that you need to work by yourself. You can connect with a like-minded community of creators that will inspire you. In many of these female-centric platforms, new businesses have been spurred, funding is secured, and lifelong friendships have been built.
Working in a female-centric co-working space gives more than just space.
You Can Collaborate with Other Women from Different Career Backgrounds; collaborating with other like-minded ladies, will help you get inspired. You meet a diverse group of ladies; podcasters, YouTubers, business coaches, consultants, freelancers, designers, lawyers, bloggers, plus all types of female entrepreneurs – and once you meet these ladies, you will get the support you need to grow your business. It’s about building communities.
A Female Co-Working Space Environment Allows You to Grow Exponentially
Success breeds success. Surrounding yourself with other female entrepreneurs who are also challenging themselves to keep moving their business to the next level, which will allow you to stay motivated and inspired by them. As women, they’ll know the challenges you’re facing. And rightly so, they’ll know the steps you can take to overcome those same challenges. They can share their experiences so you can choose how you proceed in tacking your own set of challenges. It is also a community that you can trust; you get new ideas with honest feedback. As a female business owner, you will never feel afraid to share ideas or ask for help.
“I feel like I belong to something rather than having space to just work. It felt like I have a team here at One Roof
(Women Only Co-working Space, Australia), even though all of us have separate businesses” Toni-Marie Aston, Digital Marketing Director
Feel at Home; It’s Much More Than Just an Office Space
You have a place where you can just sit down and get things done. A lot of female entrepreneurs try working from home but don’t end up getting much done, feel isolated and don’t end up meeting a lot of people. The environment in a female-centric co-working space is impressive, professional and is unlike the feeling of working in a typical corporate office.
