It’s no secret that we love coworking spaces!
As a freelancer working from home can sometimes get very lonely and isolating.
Coworking spaces are a great way to work in a space that doesn’t feel like an office, yet keeps you productive. Some of the reasons we love coworking spaces include: no bosses (obvs!), other freelancers and entrepreneurs to network with, great coffee (and many more).
Here are 21 of the best coworking spaces around the world that we would absolutely love to work from. Some we already have, others have gone on our coworking bucket list 😉
