If you work for yourself like I do then you’ll know how difficult it is sometimes to actually sit at home and work, especially if your set-up is like mine and you have not one, but two sweet-faced distractions around that want your attention all the time. What’s awesome is that these days there are quite a number of really cool shared workspaces that have popped up all around Joburg that make working out of home really easy and convenient!
My friend Cherise has just recently opened up one of these great little spots in Linden called Basecamp, but what’s really awesome about her space is that when you sign up for a month or two or whatever the case is, you get your own desk and your very own set of keys, which means you are free to come and go as you please. You also have access to all their facilities which includes wifi, a skype room, meeting room, printer and kitchen which is always stocked with tea, coffee, and rusks! It’s also located directly opposite Brian Lara and The Whippet etc so if you feel like popping out for lunch all you have to do is cross the street.
I’ve been working out of Basecamp for a couple of days now and it’s been really awesome! Marina the manager is lovely and really accommodating and the space itself is quiet and nice and open so you don’t feel like you’re sitting on top of the person next to you.
Anyway, I thought I’d tell you guys about it in case you’re looking for a new place to put your laptop down! Maybe I’ll see you there!
PS: They are running a special at the moment instead of the normal monthly fee of R2500 you can get your first three months for only R1500 each! Oh and if you’re only looking to come in a day at a time here and there, that option is also available. You can check out their rates etc here.
