Stark Is My Office Solution

starkblogpic2 Normally, I wake up, get on the computer, check my stats, fight with my husband over what channel is on playing on the television, and finding the remote control is an exercise in futility. I have to make my own coffee, bring it back to my bed, and work from bed with the dog next to me.  The dog wants to get up and go out every 5 minutes and chase squirrels and my husband is yapping on his cell phone and doing his own thing, which makes it very distracting for me to productively work.  Plus, my kitchen is calling me with snacks, food and omelets to be made.  Needless to say, when I found out @sparklingruby got a new office at Stark in Mt. Kisco, I literally jumped out of bed at the offer to come see her new sparkling space filled with Rubies.
It was so nice to be greeted by a lovely receptionist and I know members of the Stark team like Sherri Malone, who was a great resource for issues that I never could have resolved on my own.  It was so refreshing to have a warm cup of coffee that I made in the coffee room, as opposed to standing online at Starbucks for 30 minutes.  Sparklingrubys office was clean, fresh and very large! I loved how it was decorated, and the 2 of us were even able to share one desk with plenty of room.  I forgot how it felt to work in an office. I was able to work a lot more productively and cranked out 6 blog posts from Starks Mount Kisco office.  When David Hoffman and Ruben Garcia of Search Smart Marketing walked in her office, it felt like a party with all 5 of us, and it made me realize how lonely it is working from bed at home. Next time I want to get work done I will definitely rent out an office at Stark. It would be great if they had a tweetup there- it would be a great place for a conference, tweetup or hosting a speaker series.  Definitely a fan of Stark!
