People in the Camden Haven are increasingly choosing to work in a co-working space where business networking, innovation and entrepreneurship can prosper.
Engage Space in Bonny Hills is utilised by business owners including web designer Robey Lawrence, travel designer Jen Lloyd and honey/hamper business owner Ana Martin.
“I find at home it can very distracting and hard to get work done,” Ana said.
“You start something, then get up for a cup of tea or you hang the laundry and water the plants.
“Four hours can go by and you realise you haven’t sent that email yet.”
Ana said when she uses the co-working space she is motivated to work as she is paying for the space and there are other people around who are also working.
Jen has five children and she runs a travel agency from home.
She said Engage Space is great for connecting with like-minded individuals from the area.
“It’s nice to work around people who run their own businesses,” she said.
Jen said while working from home can have its benefits, especially if her children are sick, being in a co-working space is a lot less socially isolating and encourages her to be productive.
As a web designer Robey can technically work from anywhere but he said it’s great to have a reliable and fast internet connection.
The work space is ideal for start-ups, freelancers, remote workers, home based and micro businesses.
Engage Space is open seven days. For more information visit engagespace.com.au or call 6586 3433.
