Do I need to commit to a certain number of months or length of time?
Membership is month to month and you can stop it at any time at the end of any month. All we ask is that you give us a few days notice to stop your automatic payment.
Speaking of payments, how do those work?
When you sign your member agreement, you let us know how you want to make payments either via credit card or automatic payments (ACH) from your checking or savings accounts. All payments are due at the beginning of each month. Your month will begin on the day you sign your agreement or whatever date you designate.
Is the space available after hours?
How’s the parking situation?
When there isn’t a Twin’s game in the afternoon, parking is easy. There are usually meters available right outside our door as well as several lots and a parking ramp (great for the winter) all around us. Also, we highly recommend the public transportation system. We are just a couple of blocks from the Target Field light rail station and several bus routes stop right on our corner or just a block or two away. If you want to ride your bike, we will give you some ideas on where you can store it.
What if I want to use the space to meet with clients and prospects or other people for meetings? Do they need to be members?
Absolutely not! This is one of the conveniences of being a member of the space. You are free to bring guests for meetings and use your conference room time if you need more privacy. All we ask is that they sign in as a guest, and if they would like to stay in the space longer than your meeting, that they use their free day pass (for first timers) or pay for a day pass.
Some of the memberships come with business coaching, what is that all about and how do I use it?
This is what makes WorkAround so unique. Because of our relationship with AdviCoach and the fact that the coaches are also members, we are able to build in a special member’s only collaborative coaching session free for our Full-Time members. Once a month for a 1 ½ hours, one of the business coaches will facilitate a powerful business growth and accountability session along with other members. When you join, you will also get a two hour free 1 to 1 coaching session to get you started. If you want more 1 to 1 time, you would work directly through the coaches and AdviCoach and will receive significant discounts for coaching packages and workshops.
Can I bring my pet or my kids?
Sorry, no pets or kids. Those are just the types of distractions that brought many of us to WorkAround in the first place.
Is it ok for me to use my phone?
Of course it is. You are running a business and the phone is still an essential part of getting things done. But this is an open environment so be respectful and keep it down. Recognize that your conversations may not be private and if you do need privacy seek an open conference room or go out into the lobby. If your business requires you to spend most of the day on the phone, this space is not for you.
Can I bring my lunch?
Certainly. We have a refrigerator and microwave, along with an unlimited supply of coffee and tea. Again, this space is shared. Always mark your food, remove it every night, toss all food stuffs in the kitchen garbage and don’t leave your food in the microwave.
What do I need to bring?
Your computer, phone and stuff to work on. We provide the WIFI, desk, seating, coffee, tea and water. We have coffee cups and drinking glasses, if you want to bring your own, go for it.
