It’s called “shared office space,” and it’s new to Tyler. Co.Work will open this innovative co-working office space on September 15th at 112 East Line St, Suite 204, across from the Chamber building. Co-founder Blake Moser said, “Many entrepreneurs who work from home want an office where they can be around other business people. Research shows the number one complaint from people who work from home is loneliness. We’re not at our best unless we’re happy at some level and we’re not happy unless we have relationships with other people.” Co.Work offers flex co-working desk, dedicated space, private offices, conference room, kitchen, meeting room, as well as phone booths for quiet conversations. It is also great for sales representatives who mainly work out of their cars. You can learn more online at Co.Work and on Facebook at CoWorkTyler. The phone number is 903-600-0304.
