Coworking is about Community … and our’s is constantly growing and evolving to include an vast array of members and industries! Take a look at the list below!
Our members describe why they recommend coworking and the LOOM community:
Matt Mulhern – Go Unmanned (Specialists in Drone Technology): “My experience at LOOM has been fantastic! I initially joined just to have a nice comfortable place to meet with clients and get away from the house for a little while. What I have discovered is that I have access to a community of like-minded business professionals that I can engage in conversation that have really helped me reach some of my marketing goals and in turn I have been able to help others. I also learned how distracted I was by all my gadgets and ongoing projects at my home office. Spending the day at LOOM lets me focus on the task at hand and I am more productive as a result. I would recommend the LOOM Coworking experience to anyone that telecommutes for work.
Brittanie Young – Independent HR Consultant for Non-profits & Medical: Although I work for myself, being surrounded by this awesome group of like-minded professionals has been wonderful for my development. I have been welcomed with open arms and feel like I have gained a family. As human beings, we are built for community. Working from home gets distracting, boring and sometimes unproductive but when I’m working at LOOM, I am much more focused and energized. Thanks so much for letting me be a part of this awesome community!
Tom Metz – worshipplanning.com (church scheduling and planning software): “I truly did not expect coworking to be something that would capture my interest. I love my quiet and humble home office. The concept seemed great, but not anything I needed. And yet, there is something about working at LOOM that makes me feel even more productive than working at home. Despite it not being as quiet as at home, I find it easier to focus on my work at LOOM office. Perhaps it is higher quality breaks with human interaction that help me focus more when I’m working. Maybe it’s a self-imposed expectation that I need to make the best use of my time “at the office”. Whatever it is, LOOM is more conducive to more creative and more efficient work…at least for me. The fellow coworkers are great. The setting is professional, yet relaxed, fun, and interesting. Networking opportunities are surprisingly high, though not taxing for those that want to just get work done. I’m very thankful for LOOM, and could not imagine coworking being done any better.”
Chris Jones – Jones Brothers Realty at Keller Williams: I was folding laundry at 10:30 in the morning on a Tuesday and thought, “This has to stop.” I struggled to get work done at the house. As a business owner and entrepreneur, I need to be able to stay focused on my tasks and work on growing my company. However, most days I found myself occupied with the children, television, chores and the day to day rigmarole of working from home. I discovered LOOM and never looked back. Getting out of the house and going “to the office” gives me the intention and direction I need to optimize my work day. No longer does multitasking include emptying the dishwasher.
Our members tell us what their missions were for joining:
Robert Jacobs, Client Executive at API Healthcare: “Having worked out of my home for a while, we realize it is now better to have a space to work outside the home so I can be productive without my work encroaching on home life. Because I travel and my schedule is flexible, I feel that LOOMoffers the ideal setup for my needs. I was glad to be a founding member because after attending numerous planning meetings and seeing other Coworking places, I believe LOOM and its leadership has a well thought out concept and is truly dedicated to making this a success for all.”
Chris Horner, VP at Capital Bank, about being a LOOM Supporter Member: “As the old saying goes ‘It takes a village’. LOOM is an excellent way to connect to neighbors in the community and learn about other local businesses. It’s also a great resource for people to support one another and expand their network – helping to maintain the ‘human connection’ side in business.”
Vicki Kenworthy, Pharmacist and IT Clinical Analyst: I work with a great team of people on the Electronic Health Record for a large hospital system. I have always worked in a hospital or in more recent years the offices of their IT department. Two years ago, I transitioned to a remote worker for the same company when we moved to the Fort Mill area. The challenge is that doesn’t really meet my need for human connections! I really miss the office interaction and often feel a quite lonely in my home office. I’m not a fan of the coffee shops, as there is too much noise, and I don’t feel I have time to wander around for a space to sit or hope for decent Wi-Fi. I get an amazing amount of work done at home, but at the end of the day I discover I barely got up from my desk, and it seems I never ‘leave’ work! I was SO excited about the opportunity to join LOOM, get out of the house, become more connected with my community, and find a better work-home balance!
