I Heart Coworking People

I heart coworking people. All of them. I’m a fan girl of coworking. For the past 5 years, I’ve owned a coworking space. However, when I first opened, I must admit that I knew very little about what made “coworking” work. I originally opened the coworking space because I needed to cover the cost of a space I had recently acquired for another venture. I formed the business, did some minimal marketing on Craigslist—and within

We aren't selling desks (I have one at home and so do you).
We are not selling high speed Internet (everyone has that at home now).
We are not even selling bottomless, locally roasted coffee. (Even though we really love our @firelightcofee.)

We are selling brains that work better in a #coworkingspace than they do anywhere else!
Brains that are trying to grow businesses and need to fire on all cylinders.
Brains that are preparing for important client presentations and need to be optimized for creativity.
Brains that want to get promoted and need to be on their A-games.

We are selling increased revenue, client high-fives and upgraded titles.

Not desks.
