FAQs



 




 

What is coworking?

Coworking is a “shared office” workspace that functions as a member club. Typically it is attractive to work-at-home professionals, independent contractors, small/startup businesses, and people who frequently travel who end up working in relative isolation.

Coworking provides members with the opportunity to network with other highly-motivated self-starters from a variety of industries, escape the isolation of working from home or a hotel, while enjoying amenities like high-speed secure Wi-Fi, coffee, tea, water, and snacks along with business amenities like copying, scanning, printing, virtual mail handling, and meeting spaces.

What makes MY OTHER OFFICE different from other coworking or shared office spaces?

While there are a number of wonderful coworking places, MY OTHER OFFICE separates itself due to its location, wonderful facilities, outstanding staff, and amenities for members.

Located in the heart of downtown Burbank, MY OTHER OFFICE is in a fantastic location that is easy to access via public transportation, surrounded by plenty of free public parking lots, and in easy walking distance to a variety of Burbank’s best restaurants and eateries. The facilities themselves are organized, clean, and decorated to promote free and clear thinking by our members and is conveniently located only fifteen minutes away from Burbank airport and within a five minute walk of many MetroLink stops.

Our friendly staff is second-to-none in terms of customer service and customized offerings for our members. We pride ourselves on being able to fulfill office-related needs while providing a productive and casual atmosphere that promotes efficiency, networking, opportunities, and autonomy.

What really ties the bow on what makes MY OTHER OFFICE a special coworking space is our amenities. In addition to all our standard offerings (i.e. high-speed secure Wi-Fi, coffee, tea, water, snacks, printing, scanning, faxing, copying). We also provide a private telephone booth and private skype room for members who need that brief period away from the Flex Floor to meet or talk in a more private setting.
