Entrepreneur, Founder of Sesh Coworking
Industry: Community Building
Company: Sesh Coworking
Get to know me
Hi everyone, I’m Meredith! I’m a mother of two young girls with a passion for community building and entrepreneurial endeavors. I founded Sesh Coworking after battling both the loneliness and lack of confidence that comes from working from home. I had started several businesses previously, but none of them felt like the right fit and rarely went anywhere. The idea of starting a coworking community and space came to me while I was nursing my second daughter and I haven’t let go of it since. As the business and community grows and thrives, I find myself equally thrilled and terrified at what is to come - and truly I could ask for no better feeling!
Who is your biggest Girl Crush and why?
My biggest Girl Crush has got to be Jen Gotch, founder and Creative Director of Ban.do. I’ve followed her journey from small time Etsy shop owner to multimillion dollar Ban.do as it is today as well as her personal battles with anxiety, depression and living to your fullest. I find her to be such an inspiration as well as a dose of much needed honesty and humor.
What is your Spirit Animal and why?
My spirit animal would have to be a dolphin because they are smart, energetic, playful and get to explore the great depths of the ocean. They also find great strength and safety in their pods and quite frankly, I refer to the Sesh community as a pod so there you go.
What is your favorite leisure spot, restaurant or gathering space in Houston?
Hermann Park on a beautiful sunny day.
What special skill, talent or gift would you like to give back to the Sesh Community?
Inspiration and encouragement.
I am most interested in:
Consulting from Others
Finding a Mentor
Being a Mentor
I mean, I founded the group so obviously I. Want. It. All.
What is one thing that would be game-changing for your business/career right now?
Guidance navigating the business (aka numbers) side of the biz.
What are some small things that make your day better?
Chatting with a friend, a good glass of California Cab, making big plans and a long, hot bath (with a bath fizzy of course).
