Tell us a little bit about your entrepreneurial journey and how you came up with the idea for Posh Coworking.
For Blossom Braemer, co-founder of Posh, being an entrepreneur is in her blood. From a very early age, she knew that she would be in charge of her own earnings. At 13 she was a babysitting broker. In college she started an interior decorating firm. After the birth of her first daughter, she opened a boutique décor company that catered to the needs of Walt Disney World’s “Destination Wedding” clients. In 2009, she moved half way across the country, and continued her love for entrepreneurism when she launched a home based, boutique wedding floral company. It was great! She believed in what she was doing for brides on such an important day.

She started thinking about other work from home professionals and said to herself “surely they struggle with this too!” That was the moment she knew that she had to find a solution. Not just for herself, but for all us. Something had to change. (more…)
