Show Notes

Welcome to our brand new solo episode series: Behind the Business! In these episodes I will be giving you some insight on projects we are working on in real time - and a highly requested one so far has been to share how I launched my women’s coworking space here in Salem, Oregon at the beginning of 2022. This is my first venture into the world of commercial real estate, and it has been a wild ride these first 7 months, so let’s just dive into the episode!
