I’ve worked out of my home for the past 5 years.

While it’s been great on many fronts, I have to admit I get a little stir crazy. Sometimes I’ll just grab my laptop and go work at my local Starbucks, Panera or pub.

I enjoy it because it gets me out in front of people, but if I had to make a phone call or print something up — I’d have to head home again. I love getting out but these places just are NOT conducive to a productive work environment.

So I started looking around a bit and discovered the whole world of Co-Working.

And MAN – I was INSTANTLY in love. I was craving for something like this to open locally but alas no one has made the move in NEO.

What really got a fire in my belly about it was an interview I did with Susan Evans, Co-Founder of Office Nomads on my other blog, Small Business Guru.

After talking with her, I was SOLD.

So seeing a need and sensing a business opportunity, I started researching it more actively. So much so my wife & I found ourselves writing a business plan, scouting locations, and chatting up investors and our local chambers of commerce to get this off the ground.

So here I am, writing about this exciting endeavor and looking for local cohorts.

I’ll be documenting our progress, what we’ve learned, and what we’re doing to make this happen. Hopefully we’ll gain enough local interest to make our final ‘go’ decision.

In the meantime, I hope you enjoy following along and look forward to hearing from you if you’d like to be a part of the process.
