WorkSocial is a unique coworking space owned and operated by a team of Minority Owned Women in Jersey City

Picture a high end, serene coworking space in a AAA building in Jersey City. Now erase the beer kegs and replace them with freshly pressed juices.  Delete the Ping-Pong table and replace it with tai-chi classes.  Take out the frat house type noise and watch a group of focused entrepreneurs make ideas happen.  The success stories of WorkSocial are endless.   From companies scaling from 1 to 50 in 8 months, entrepreneurs getting funded in a quick 6 months and access to hundreds of hours of server space.  What is totally unique is that this shared office space in Jersey City, NJ charges $0 for more.

Welcome to the world of women-owned and happiness-centric workspaces.

Here is the backstory of WorkSocial.  In February 2015 my father passed away.  He gave up.  He gave up the desire to live.  He succumbed to depression in the face of cancer.  In his prime he was like Superman on Steroids.  My fondest memory of my father was listening to him talk on the phone.  His mild manner he made multi-million dollar deals.  No paperwork, no contracts or SOW’s.  I once asked him if he was ever scared that people would not keep their word and he would lose money. To that he responded, the first law of business is to serve people enough and they will never let you down. That really moved me.

Entrepreneurs at Shared Office Space
My Father: Shri Shiv Mohan Mukkar

The last time I met dad, I was in India.  In our home in New Delhi.  I asked dad jokingly if he had any fatherly advice for me.  In his feeble and wise voice he muttered, beta [hindi for son] if you can find a way to be happy please do.  1 Month later he was gone.  He saw through my struggles and unhappiness.

8 Months later my wife and I started WorkSocial | Happiness Company at 111 Town Square Place, Jersey City, NJ 07310.

A platform created with the purpose of bringing happiness back to people’s life.  My mentor Robin Sharma taught me, if you want a lifetime of happiness.  Spend your life giving happiness to people. So to follow dad’s last wish we created a platform to bring happiness back to work.  Please don’t get us wrong, we do make a profit.  My father was an extraordinary entrepreneur so we created a profitable business out of this.

In the months prior to opening WorkSocial we started to conceptualize the user experience.  How did we want our clients to feel when the walked in to start their day, invited a client for a sales pitch and left WorkSocial at the end of the day.

Here are some of the themes that we came up with:

An incubator for new technologies:

A connection to common set of beliefs and values

Every client will always feel like a big fish in a small pond

Your authentic self will always be welcomed

Trust and Security

Convenient Location, excellent product at a fair price:

An office space where scale could be achieved

Simplicity in dealings and hospitality:

A place for new business

A quiet place to learn

A place to brainstorm and make ideas happen

ames Allen described the perfect worksocial member in his work As a Man Thinketh:

The dreamers are the saviors of the world. As the visible world is sustained by the invisible, so men, through all their trials and sins and sordid vocations, are nourished by the beautiful visions of their solitary dreamers. Humanity cannot forget its dreamers; it cannot let their ideals fade and die; it lives in them; it knows them in the  realities which it shall one day see and know.
