As much as working in coffee shop and on the living room sofa sounds like a dream, the reality is that working independently usually means giving up the good parts of “going to the office.”

WORK gives you the good parts of going to work—like a desk next to an amazing group of people who just might spark your next brilliant idea, a gorgeous conference room, a glamorous lobby to greet clients in, and, oh yeah, a copy machine and stock of office supplies.
