In this day and age, the trend of self-employment is rapidly growing. More and more people are leaving their traditional 9-5 roles and are opting for a freelancer lifestyle.
With this newfound freedom comes both opportunities and challenges. Staying focussed on the task at hand can sometimes be difficult when your office is situated at home. Don’t get us started on those creativity blocks! They can get even the best of us.
This is why a location that eases us into the zone is a no-brainer. Being inspired by a calming aroma, delicious coffee or even a unique ambience can be the difference between productivity and procrastination.
So if you’re a freelancer or just looking for a space outside of work to get in the zone. Here are our top 5 Subi spots to buckle down and get things done:
