Once the pandemic hit, people started to work from home with safety protocols in place. The state was trying to prevent spread, so remote work soon become the only option for some. 

Two years later, some people have embraced the change. Some realized there's no need to stick to the traditional 9-5. 

The question is: will this trend sustain? Coworking spaces have started to pop up more frequently and today there are six on the Western Slope (Montrose, Olathe, Ridgway, Telluride and Grand Junction). 

I wrote about Alt Space Coworking and Conexion Coworking. 

I find it fascinating that we are now in an age where people aren't tethered to a desk or location and can make their own schedules. I understand working from home isn't for everybody and that's why these spaces are interesting — you can have your own space away from home and work in your own time. 

Time will tell how much this trend continues, but it's expected to play a big role again in 2022 and 2023

Have you tried a coworking space? Are you considering transitioning to remote work? It'd be great to hear what you think about remote work, even if you're not a fan of it.
