  • [00:35] Even though Neil is a WeWork member, he prefers to sit and work in the lobbies of luxury hotels.
  • [01:09] No one has ever kicked him out of the lobby nor asked if he was a guest.
  • [01:20] Eric finds WeWork expensive and disappointing.
  • [01:42] WeWork is great for freelancers looking for companionship.
  • [02:11] Lobbies of luxury hotels provide networking opportunities.
  • [02:30] Try it, because it’s a good experience and is better than a Starbucks.
