Work Jelly

If you work from home or cafe, you’ve probably felt the need to meet and work alongside other like-minded independent professionals every once in awhile. Fortunately, there are other independent professionals feeling the exact same pain. A Coworking membership is one solution for this, but might be too much of a commitment for some people just getting used to the idea of working alongside other people. Another solution for a coworking newbie might be to try Jelly.

In a nutshell, Jelly is a casual working event. It takes place in over a hundred cities where people come together (in a person’s home, a coffee shop, or an office) to work for the day. Jelly communities are popping up everywhere in the world, and the best way to find one is probably through the Work at Jelly wiki or through Meetup.com (search for Jelly or Coworking).

The difference between coworking and Jelly is that Jelly typically happens only once or twice a month for any particular location…and it’s also usually free. There are no commitments with Jelly, whereas typical coworking memberships require a one month commitment. Here’s a great little video describing the Jelly vibe:
