How do people feel about coworking spaces and privilege/ethical concerns? I love the idea of working in a cool coworking space but am sketched out from a client privacy perspective. Would you feel comfortable if you weren’t printing/using printed materials and could go to a quiet private location for calls? Trying to determine if I’m being too anal. Ppl work on planes, in hotels, etc all the time…

You would need a personal hotspot so you are not on a shared network. You would also need to make sure no one can see what you are working on. And, it can be hard to gather all of your stuff to go take a call. But, you can’t really leave your notes or atty/client privileged documents at an unsupervised table either. I have worked at Starbucks before under the above conditions. But, I don’t take calls while I am there.

I don’t take calls where I may have to talk (I am a junior so this is rare…). I’ve put my AirPods in and listened to a call and taken notes at a coffee shop before. My laptop screen is pretty small as is the text, and at the coffee shop I occasionally work at, I just choose a table where my back (and my laptop screen) faces the wall. The annoying part is going to the bathroom because I obviously can’t leave my computer or purse at my table (theft concerns) or any printed stuff (confidentially concerns if someone took it).
