One of the most difficult challenges a traveling entrepreneur faces is maintaining a healthy balance of a busy travel schedule and their workload. One week can be a conference in a Fortune 500 board room in New York City, the next an event in Fort Myers, and so on. In anticipation of your next business trip, you should be prepared for anything and everything including knowing where the closest coworking space is located.
The answer to your travelling uncertainty is one simple word: organization and knowledge of where to find a coworking office. Staying organized finding the local coworking space will make your business trips less hectic and give you a clear mind, rather than maintaining constant stress and chaos in your head.
Adding travel to an already hectic business schedule can seem like a daunting hurdle, but it doesn’t have to be. If you have a large layover and need to finish a report in allotted time, look into a coworking space within your area. Endeavor is conveniently located near Southwest Florida International Airport. Coworking space was designed to take the stress out of traveling for business, among other things. A shared work space allows you to have complete focus while encouraging you to get in touch with your inner creativity. Here at Endeavor Innovative Workspaces, we offer no-lease required workspaces including daily access to coworking space ideal for the traveling entrepreneur. Knowing that you have a suitable office or coworking space equipped with wifi, meeting rooms, private office suites, and a desk, even if for a short time, can enhance this experience for you and your perspective clients. You can purchase a day pass to the coworking space for that 9-hour layover, or look into our monthly memberships if you are in Fort Myers for an extended period of time. Your free time is very limited when traveling on business, so it is imperative to use your time wisely, consider coworking.
The next thing to remember is to utilize the free time you have – airplanes may not have coworking space but are no longer just for sleeping. Use the hour, 3 hours, or 24 hours you have on this plane to your total advantage. This is the only time your phone will not be constantly buzzing with irrelevant texts or calls and you are more inclined to put your sole focus on your work.
If you plan on traveling to southwest Florida in the near future, give us a call at 239.785.3399 to learn more about our membership opportunities and our coworking space. Happy coworking!

A major key to being productive during your work day is the space that you work in. If you work from home surrounded by clutter, children, and noise, you may find that your productivity lags. Even in a professional office space multiple factors can combine to create a less than ideal work area. Factors such as lighting, noise, distractions, ergonomics, and even color can drastically impact the quality, and quantity of your work. Whether or not you have control of all of these aspects of your office, there are small changes you can make to improve the quality of your work both in and out of the office.
A major factor in your work productivity is the physical space that you work in. Working from home often leads to clutter and distractions. If working from home is your only option, set up a designated workspace that serves no other purpose other than your professional needs. Clear the clutter, organize, and if possible shut the door. Use natural light when possible, and block out extraneous noise with noise-canceling headphones or a white noise machine. These small but impactful changes will likely increase your productivity and decrease the stress of working from home.
If you are a professional who works at a corporate office or a shared-office space such as Endeavor, there are additional ways to increase productivity. Just like you want to clear clutter and distractions at home, the same is necessary at the office, even if all you do is work there. File away documents (both paper and digital) to clear your desk and your mind. Office spaces are notorious for being bland, so bring in your own pops of color. Studies have shown that blue increases productivity and orange increases creativity. Whatever color inspires you, surround yourself with it at work.
Ergonomics also play a major role in decreased efficiency at the workplace. Some general office ergonomics tips include:
- Keeping the weight of your arms supported and your feet on the floor throughout the day.
- Sitting up straight and using lumbar support.
- Positioning your computer monitor at eye level directly in front of you, about an arms length away.
- Control screen glare by not placing your monitor in front of a window or bright background.
- Give your eyes a rest from the harsh lighting on your monitor by periodically focusing on an object about 20 feet away.
If you bounce back and forth between office space and working from home, these tips can help make the transition smoother:
- Keep a notepad handy to jot down ideas. There’s nothing worse than losing an idea while you’re working on something else. By keeping a notepad (either paper or digital) designated for work ideas, you can keep them all in one place for easy reference once you have the time to address them.
- Keep snacks and water on hand. Staying hydrated at home is much easier than the office. While some office spaces like Endeavor provide kitchen areas, make sure that you are bringing enough water to get you through the day. Keeping healthy, energizing snacks at your desk can also help alleviate any mid-day hunger pangs.
- At the beginning of the day, jot down your daily goals. Keep these achievable and short term and make a genuine effort to achieve them by the end of the day. Knowing that you checked off your daily goal can give you an increased sense of accomplishment at the end of the day when you finish your work.
Here at Endeavor, we strive to make your workspace the most productive area for your business to work. We provide all of the office equipment and space that you need to be your most efficient and help your business thrive. Small changes can make a huge difference in your work environment and make your space work for you.
