After some deliberation, I've decided to join a co-working space instead of renting a live/work loft. This seemed like the right decision given that I'm in an early stage with the company. The coworking community, and the healthy separation between work and home, were positives that sealed the deal.
For due diligence, I visited three coworking offices around San Francisco today.
In the same vein, I listened to the episode of NPR's 'How I Built This' with WeWork cofounder Miguel McKelvey. This made me appreciate WeWork as a company, and understand how they have achieved their ~$20 Bn valuation. Miguel is a true entrepreneur. His vision and hustle shine through in the episode.
