Your couch can be a tempting (and super comfortable) place to work from on a daily basis as a digital nomad, but it also can be a big distraction and productivity-killer. We know having the proper work environment is key.
So on June 25, 2018, we asked our Incfile Twitter followers about their favorite place to work remotely that isn't their own home. The results are in, and we have a tie. Digital nomads said they enjoy working both at coffee shops and shared office spaces: 50 percent voted for each alternative, and we received no votes for working in a library.
We're not surprised that coffee shops received half the votes. Coffee shops are a popular place to work as a digital nomad since you can typically find one on almost any street corner. They're also cozy and filled with fellow remote workers, students and others busy at work or chatting while sipping on their lattes. Not to mention that freelancers and entrepreneurs are notoriously fueled by caffeine, making this a very convenient working location. Free Wi-Fi is also a draw for digital nomads looking to get their work done.
On the other hand, we understand that shared office spaces are also becoming quite popular. Many different shared office spaces have popped up due to the influx of remote workers and their need for a consistent workspace. Locations like WeWork can be a great place for remote workers to socialize and network with others, while giving them a space to host meetings in a professional office setting.
