One-third of your life is spent at work, so where you work and who you work with is important. The 9-5 culture is losing popularity as more and more individuals are opting to use coworking spaces, which are shared office spaces used by groups and individuals. Statista predicted that by 2027, 50.9% of the total U.S workforce will be freelancing. Coworking allows people to find flexible, affordable office spaces that they can grow into. Individuals have reported that coworking has expanded their professional networks and made them more motivated, engaged, happy, and successful.
