2013-05-31 20.03.36

Coworking is a fun, social and productive alternative to working from home or the coffee shop.  You need just a few essential things to cowork effectively at any of the Fort Collins coworking spaces.

  • Your laptop & integrated or external wireless receiver + your power cord and any other laptop accessories you like to use.
  • Your cell phone in case you use that to make work calls. Not all coworking spaces have land lines.

  • A happy, helpful attitude.
  • A project to work on or your normal daily work routine.

What to do when you arrive on your first day:

  • Find the community manager or staff person. Get another tour if you need it.
  • Pick a place to sit.  Many coworking spaces have multiple seating options, the community manager can help you find just the right one.

  • Introduce yourself to your fellow coworkers.  Take a moment to learn what they’re working on and let them know what projects you’re tackling.
  • Begin being wildly productive.  Collaborate with others, ask them questions, offer advice or help your coworkers and start building your coworking community.
  • Any questions or problems, ask your neighbor.
