By | Resources | No Comments

Networking and Co-Working

Professionals who decide to conduct business in a co-working space have the unique opportunity to make organic, long-lasting partnerships with like-minded individuals. This is because the co-working space acts as a shared networking space in which professionals from varying industries can connect and collaborate. Not sure how to make the most out of your networking experience at WORKZONES? No worries! Here are 3 great ways to network in a co-working and shared office space.

1. Share Your Expertise

While you may not want to tell another professional everything you know about the industry, it’s important to offer your expertise when asked. By helping another individual, you can make an invaluable connection that can help you later in your career.

2. Ask for Feedback

Imagine that you’re working on a new product and you want to know how marketable your product really is. Because you’re in a co-working space, you can ask the other professionals at WORKZONES what they think about your product. The trick here is to listen to what they have to say. Even if you disagree with the other individual, everyone likes to feel as though you care about their opinion.

3. Check Out WORKZONES Member Mixers

Every month, WORKZONES hosts member mixers. These monthly member mixers give entrepreneurs in Santa Barbara the space to hold trainings, educational seminars, and workshops. The events are free to attend. All you have to do is be ready to network with other professionals.

Make The Leap From Working At Home Or In A Coffee Shop To Co-Working

Co-Working Space

If you’re one of the many professionals who have opted out of working in a traditional office setting, then you may be running your business from a home office or a coffee shop. Unfortunately, home offices make balancing work and life duties difficult as professionals are distracted by children, pets, etc.; and working from a coffee shop isn’t much better. Coffee shops are bustling with individuals meeting for social outings, loud college students, and the like. Inviting a client to one of these locations would seem unprofessional, and taking a conference call would be difficult because of all the distractions. If you’re looking for work-from-home flexibility mixed with office-setting professionalism, WORKZONES is the perfect location for you!

Flexible Hours. Professional Location.

At WORKZONES, we offer a new office concept called co-working. Co-working provides professionals from different industries with a common workspace to complete projects, network, and share ideas. Our fully furnished co-working space is set up like a cafe. However, unlike a cafe, our space is filled with professionals who exchange ideas in order to further their careers.

To give you the work-from-home feel, WORKZONES offers flexible co-working plans that allow you to work how you want, when you want. These plans are called our HOMEZONE memberships. HOMEZONE memberships give professionals access to our ready-to-work space and co-working amenities.

HOMEZONE Options

Professionals have two options when it comes to our HOMEZONE memberships: HOMEZONE and HOMEZONE Plus.

  • HOMEZONE  – For less than $5 per day, members receive unlimited access to our premier co-working space in the heart of downtown Santa Barbara.
  • HOMEZONE Plus – Members receive unlimited access to our premier co-working space, and for an additional $2.50 per day, members can add another person to their co-working plan.

Your Workspace

WORKZONES budget-friendly co-working space is perfect for professionals who want the work-from-home flexibility as well as the traditional office feel. For more information about our co-working space, meeting rooms, private offices, dedicated desks, and more, call (805) 966-3722 and request a tour today!


Co-working Defined

Co-working is working independently in a shared work space. It differs from the typical office environment because the people are usually self-employed or remote workers. Co-working facilities also attract professionals that have home offices or travel a lot, and are seeking to improve their productivity.
