There seems to be quite a bit of confusion about coworking space, how it works, what it costs, what is included, and is it a viable alterative for today’s modern business person?

Now, let’s set about killing those myths.
Myth #1: coworking space is a gimmick which actually costs much more than advertised
This is perhaps the most popular myth about coworking space, and it is the easiest to disprove. Coworking space at Paddock Place Office Suites begins at $550 per month. Utilities and WiFi are included in that monthly price. There are no hidden surcharges. We defy you to go out and find an office for rent for $550 per month. It cannot be done, no matter where you live. And, there are no hidden fees or surcharges. There are no hidden costs lurking in the corners. You rent on a part-time basis, when you need it, and you do not sign a long-term lease.
$550 per month, when you need it, utilities and WiFi included! Go ahead, try to find a better deal with a yearly-lease for an office for rent. We are confident you can’t find it, but go ahead and try.
Myth #2: many of the amenities needed in an office are not available with coworking
This is simply not true. In most coworking spaces, there are shared break rooms, shared conference rooms, all of the modern bells and whistles associated with any modern office; the only difference is you won’t be paying extra for those bells and whistles.
Myth #3: It is distracting working in a shared space
You are as private as you want to be when renting a coworking space. You can actually rent a private office space if that’s what you want, or you can rent a shared office space. What we have found to be true is this: business owners enjoy having business-types working in close proximity. It gives them a change to be social during breaks, and it gives them a chance to share ideas with like-minded people. It is a creative space rather than solitary confinement.
Myth #4: They are only ideal for start-up business owners
Start-up business owners, without a professional space to call home, for sure will find coworking space useful, but so will home-based business owners tired of meeting customers in the kitchen, or traveling executives tired of working in the hotel room. Coworking space is attractive to any business employee, or owner, who needs a temporary location from which they can conduct business in a business atmosphere.
Myth #5: They don’t appear as professional as a traditional office space
Absolutely and totally false. Walk into 90% of the coworking space in America and you will feel like you are walking into a modern office building. The only difference is you are only paying for an office when you need it.
