WeWork — Coworking and Private Office Space

WHY I LOVE IT:  I’ve been a WeWork Member for most of 2018 and I can’t say enough great things about how my business has grown since moving into our office at Thanksgiving Tower. I began following the coworking industry back in 2012 and since then, WeWork has distinguished themselves as THE global leader in offering membership based office space and amenities. What attracted me most was the zero-committment, month-to-month flexibility along with their wide range of price points for private offices, which is important for a growing business like mine. Plus, my WeWork membership comes with global benefits, so when I travel domestically and internationally, I can enjoy having access to any of their 100+ offices if I need to get work done or schedule meetings in a conference room.  It really takes the guess work out of getting work done on the road!
