Our business is built on relationships. But when you think about a “co-working space, relationship-building isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. You think good wi-fi, clean cubicles, breakrooms, free coffee, and flexible meeting spaces. We found all of that and more at Office Evolution Flowood, but we also found something completely unexpected: A highly motivated, well-connected micro-community that could help us grow.
Before we joined Office Evolution Flowood, we tried a few co-working spaces in town. We had also collaborated with clients and partner firms in co-working space in other markets. Our tour at OE was a breath of fresh air. We saw how well-designed and flexible the work and meeting space options were, and the clean, well-appointed break rooms and printer areas were impressive.
But as nice as they are, those elements are not the most valuable assets of our membership. Not by a long shot. It turns out the most rewarding, business-growing aspect of our investment has been the other business owners in the “tribe” that we have come to know. We were instantly welcomed by them and, with a little networking enabled by Cliff and Adam, we instantly began collaborating, teaching, learning, and sharing insights as we all journeyed through this world of entrepreneurship together. We’ve helped each other navigate challenges, avoid land mines, and celebrate successes.
We can say from experience that you don’t get that working from home, and you don’t always find it working within a corporate space. But you’ll find it at Office Evolution. And that makes the free coffee that much tastier.
