Becoming expat can be a big challenge. Even if you have a guarantee of employment waiting for you, it is no less stressful. However, being an expat and a freelancer adds another layer of uncertainty. Imagine there is no company, support network of future colleagues or stable income waiting for you. But, despite all of that, you are 100% certain that freelancing is what you want to do. On top of that, you want to relocate and do it in another country, a very brave move indeed. It would be a wise idea to quickly integrate yourself to keep the momentum of your business.

As many of you know, Locus Workspace was put up for sale in March, partly due to the COVID-19 crisis, but largely due to my own decision to move on from the coworking industry.
As many of you also know, there was a buyer who made an offer that I accepted and showed enough interest to pay a non-refundable deposit.
Unfortunately after several months of mostly waiting for legal contracts, and for reasons I do not fully understand, the buyer pulled out and Locus is once again on the market.
Along with just announcing the unfortunate news, the purpose of this blog post is to give a brief overview of what’s next for Locus and Locus members and about what is for sale for those who might be interested in buying.
