I started OpenSpace after 16 years of working from home as a project manager with remote teams and working across different time-zones and oceans. So I already knew the power of working virtually.
As a father with young homeschooled kids, I found myself struggling when working from home. I needed a place to work without interruption, but the company office and the co-working spaces were at least an hour or more away in Dallas or North Plano. I didn't want to commute again, but I did want some coworkers. So my wife and I took some money we set aside for investing and used it as seed money to start OpenSpace.
I've found co-working to be super helpful. It's way more flexible than I had imagined or seen in the hundreds of co-working spaces that were popping up around the country. The benefits of co-working aren't limited by physical location either. From the beginning I had friends from all over that would meet virtually, but it seemed like in person was the key to success.
Covid-19 changed that big time. No-one could physically come in for over a year. The online relationships we had made became like a lifeline and developed into a strong community of friends who meet regularly. We work and make progress on our goals, check up on each other and just keep each other company. (Check out the virtual-co-working community here)
Now that things are opening back up, we haven't lost anything and we found new ways to stay connected. We are a collection of writers, web designers, programmers, entrepreneurs, and students banding together for support and encouragement.
Come visit the space, get a tour, get any questions answered, and work for free for the day.
