When we first went out on our own, we knew we wouldn't need a permanent office space for a while. We worked out of our homes, various coffee shops, grabbed an extra desk at businesses and dropped-in at free coworking spaces. Those were fine for a while, but eventually we craved being around other professional, creative people with which to interact.
From the first day I dropped-in to work at CO+HOOTS creative coworking in Phoenix, I was impressed by the friendliness and professionalism of the companies at the space, and that kept me coming back almost every week since they opened. I was there so much I earned a special drop-in badge!
At the time, there were a broad range of companies including a public relations company, an eco-friendly design company, a landscape architecture design firm and several others. The rigorous application process for permanent desks seems to help gather companies that are dedicated to creating sustainable businesses and contributing to a growing community in the downtown Phoenix area.
Did I mention they were recently selected by Phoenix Magazine's "Best of the Valley 2011" as Best Shared Work Space in Phoenix? If you haven't checked it out you should.
In fact, you can try it for free! We have 5 passes good for 3 free drop-in days and we're giving them to the first 5 people to request them. Simply email us, tweet us or find us around town and they're yours (one per person, while supplies last, of course :).
Make 2012 your year to get out of the house and be productive!
