What do professional growth, clarity and coliving have to do with one another?
Let’s take a moment and think about why people long for vacation or “workation” in modern day terms. Why do we look to explore new places and have a change of scenery? More often than not, we escape to find clarity and gain a new understanding of how we see the world and our place in it.
So what does all of this have to do with coliving?
Over the years, we’ve found that many people join us at Sun and Co. when they are in search for a sense of clarity or change in their lives.
Transitioning to new business fields.
Looking for new job opportunities.
Working on side projects in hopes to make them full-time projects.
The list goes on but we’ve heard over and over again from Colivers that once they leave Sun and Co., they have a sense of clarity that wasn’t there before. Coliving is something that is on the rise yet still isn’t explored by many but there is a power that comes from the kind of experiences that we have here that lead people to grow for the better; both personally and professionally.
Time to dive into three ways that living and learning with others in paradise won’t just give you a sense of overall clarity but will also lead to professional growth.
Learn From The Expertise Of Others
It’s true that we are all brilliant in our own ways and most of us have a lot of experience under our belt in our specific fields. Although we’re skilled at what we do, we might not necessarily have to time or opportunity to dedicate energy to learning about things that we think don’t directly affect how we see success.
One of the most impactful things that happen on a weekly basis at Sun and Co. is skillshares. At the beginning of each week, we share what everyone in the house wants to learn and who can provide meaningful content on those topics. It’s an amazing opportunity to learn from others and then apply it to your own situation and professional experience. With a wide range of topics like Facebook ad funnels, email marketing, blogging, SEO and even things like risk-taking probabilities… you’re constantly able to get out of your professional comfort zone and learn from those who specialize in different topics.
Meet Your New Business Partner
When most people think about professional networking, they envision swanky lunches or meeting people at conferences but you rarely think about your new business partner or colleague being someone you wake up and have breakfast with for two weeks. That’s the beauty about coliving, you’re not just sharing a workspace where you go in and out at the end of each day, but you’re also living together and getting to know one another on a deeper level.
Time and time again, we see people who have met at Sun and Co. later end up hiring each other, freelancing for another coliver’s companies and even leading joint ventures together.
When you’re able to get to know someone on a personal level and you value their professional worth, you can skip the resume and boring interview process and get right to the good stuff when it comes to working together or hiring someone new because you were able to connect on a deeper level from Day One.
Stay Inspired By Your Surroundings
The beauty of being based in a place like Javea is that you’re constantly surrounded by inspiration. Yes, the surroundings are beautifully inspiring with the beach and mountains just a short walk away but there is also endless inspiration in the house itself.
People like beautifully designed places, that’s why we’re all willing to pay 7€ for a coffee if it means spending a few hours working in a breathtaking cafe. That’s what we had in mind when renovating this 19th-century house. An inspiring space.
Tall glass windows. Open workspace. Closed office spaces. Tons of natural light. Outdoor patios. And plants… lots of plants.
Of course, with sleek architecture and a minimalist, homey vibe, it’s easy to be productive and get the meaningful work done when you’re surrounded by where you’re living and working.
So, it’s time to think about if you’re ready to take the next step in your life and career. Are you ready to be in a new environment, connect with other like-minded people and spend your days inspired by where you are and what you’re doing?
If so, we’re here to welcome you with open arms!
