Part-time memberships are now available

We’re excited to announce the availability of part-time memberships! Introducing these additional levels of membership allows us to better serve people interested in coworking, but do not need a full-time dedicated desk.  Like our members with month-to-month memberships, members with part-time memberships have 24/7 access to the space with all the same office amenities for the number of days afforded by their selected membership plan. Part-time members simply make use of open desks that are not already in use that day by other members.

Email us at if you have questions, or wish to schedule a tour to check out the space.

Seattle Coworking Week is happening August 3-9, 2015

Exciting things are brewing at MBO!

We’re working hard on putting the finishing touches on some recent activities and we can barely contain our excitement!  I personally find it rather challenging to hold in good news, but this time I must! Within a couple of weeks, we’ll be able to share details on some great things we’re putting in place that will provide our members a greater experience.  Check back here in early August or follow us on Twitter at @my_branchoffice to always receive the latest news.

My Branch Office has found a home!

My Branch Office has found a home!

Yes, it’s true. My Branch Office has found a home! For those of you that have been following our journey of trying to figure out where and what we want to be, or if you’re just reading this post and the preceding posts for the first time – you know that it’s been quite the journey. I’m super excited that My Branch Office has settled into a cozy space in the heart of Capitol Hill. Check out our website to learn more about our space and other information.

For the past few weeks, I’ve been working with Keith Harper and Jana Harper – the owners of The Mill – on transitioning ownership of The Mill over to My Branch Office. The Mill, a coworking space in the heart of Capitol Hill, has been successfully providing its members with a wonderful environment that has clearly fostered a strong community.

Effective today, The Mill is now My Branch Office. I’m super-thrilled to continue evolving the legacy that Keith and Jana started – and I’m incredibly grateful for the easy collaboration and the opportunity to get to know them more, as we worked on the transition.

Additionally, my appreciation goes out to the current members of The Mill who have welcomed me into the community, not just as the owner of the space, but as a member. Your insight and feedback has been incredibly valuable – and I look forward to our next steps together!

I invite you to come by My Branch Office to check out the space and say hello. We’d love to see you!


Monthly bookkeeping just became more fun!

Whether you have business or personal bookkeeping stuff to do, if you’re like me, you dread (even a little) those monthly tasks.  I’m all for making the process of ticking off the items on my bookkeeping task list more social and fun!

Bring your computers, your stack of paperwork and a thirst for some caffeine and join your fellow coworking enthusiasts the 3rd Thursday of each month to make those administrative tasks a bit more fun to tackle!

Checkout the South Lake Union meetup group for details. 

Things happen for a reason

I’m definitely a firm believer in the saying “things happen for a reason.”

Many folks, including myself, have been saying for quite a while that Columbia City is in need of a coworking space.  Well, it sounds like we’re not only going to have one….but maybe even two!  Yes, this is wonderful news for our growing community of Columbia City residents and coworking enthusiasts.  While I cannot publicly share information about these spaces – as they will share their fantastic news when the time is right – I will continue to congratulate them and will happily raise a glass with them when their space(s) open.

As many of you know, we here at My Branch Office were working towards opening our first location in Columbia City.  Well, as the title of this post states: things happen for a reason.  While I still believe Columbia City is in need of coworking space, I don’t believe it needs multiple (3+) spaces.  Now that Columbia City appears to be on its way to having coworking space, we are shifting our dedicated focus to South Lake Union – a neighborhood that is without a coworking space.  With the recent change in neighborhood focus, along with a few other factors, we anticipate opening a space in 2014.  The key to success here will be connecting with the community to determine its needs in a South Lake Union space.

That said, I invite everyone with an interest in coworking in South Lake Union to join the recently-created meetup group, attend some meetups and share with us your thoughts on what a coworking space in South Lake Union should entail.

However, we will continue to be involved in the Columbia City coworking community.  Personally, I want to see it continue to grow and thrive.  The South end really does need more coworking spaces (consider this a nod, as well, to our Renton coworking enthusiasts).

Again, congratulations to the founders of the new Columbia City coworking space(s)!

And to our fellow South Lake Union coworking enthusiasts….we send to you a bit “Hello!”
