What inspired you to launch your business idea?
OfficeSlice was inspired by a need in the community for a place where entrepreneurs, especially women entrepreneurs, could meet, collaborate, work among like minded people, and grow their business. There is no other place like it in Los Angeles, and no place like it in the local community.
OfficeSlice is a hub of empowerment, learning and practicing what it takes to create, start, market and run a business. Many of our entrepreneurs are in transition from being long time employees. They’ve taken charge of their careers, and have decided to create their future based on their goals and dreams.
What problem does your business or organization solve?
There are many women entrepreneurs dreaming of a business venture, or starting and growing their dream business. However, most are unaware of a place to gather and brainstorm as they struggle to establish themselves. Many women entrepreneurs believe that they must start their business at the kitchen table, or in the garage, and are not able to venture out into the professional world until “they’ve made it.” Isolation and lack of motivation is a very large part of failure of a business, because you may have hit a road block. Physically gathering, picking up on the creative energy of other entrepreneurs, the opportunity to brainstorm and work alongside other entrepreneurs will help motivate and energize you!
If you’re tired of working at home in isolation, or fighting for elbow room at the local coffeehouse, and you’re not meeting enough of the right kind of innovative people in order to move your business forward, then coworking at a place like OfficeSlice may be for you.
OfficeSlice offers all the benefits of a traditional office, without the drawbacks. The benefits include a dedicated professional workspace, a conference room to meet clients, and the opportunity to learn and gain new skills through educational and personal growth workshops. Grow your circle of influence, increase your productivity, and balance your work with the rest of your life by giving your business a professional home!
At OfficeSlice we strive to inspire and encourage business relationships and friendships, foster new skills, and create newfound connections. If there’s a downside, we haven’t found it yet—come in and let us show you what coworking can do for you alongside other creative women entrepreneurs!
What has been your biggest challenge as an entrepreneur and how are you working to overcome it?
Our biggest challenge has been educating local women entrepreneurs that there is a place for them to meet professionally, to work affordably and to connect with other dynamic women entrepreneurs and business owners! We are currently educating local women entrepreneurs through networking, our website, creating radio podcasts and soon, a public relations campaign. Our biggest results come from meeting women, individually and letting them know there is a place for them to work, connect and grow their business.
