Founded by award-winning business + brand strategist, Ahfeeyah C. Thomas in 2017. The Workroom is a collective + collaborative culture of women supporting women and creating wealth together.
Our story goes all the way back to the basics. That's right, the coffee shop, Panera Bread days. At The Workroom, we call these the "hunger & passion days". All true entrepreneurs know exactly what we mean. Our Founder, would often times invite friends and fellow entrepreneurs to join her, with their laptops at her home, or local coffee shop and simply work the day away, with like-minds & accountability.
Each participant of the "work session", would start out by stating their goals and what they were working on and hoped to accomplish by the end of the session. Ahfeeyah, during these sessions, often times found herself coaching her family, friends & colleagues. After all she is a coach.
It was there the vision was birthed. Ahfeeyah knew that without her work session partners, as a single mother, daughter, student, full-time Harvard HR professional, board member of several organizations, active member in her church (the list truly goes on, but you get the point), without these partners and the accountability they offered, she would be doomed.
Ahfeeyah, also realized that as a female entrepreneur time was limited and time spent on business had to be as productive as possible. Her gift to help guide women using her years of coaching experience, was invaluable and an asset to her network.
It began with humble beginnings...
The Workroom started like most businesses at a local coffee shop, panera bread + starbucks location.
Writing ideas + concepts on a napkin, scheduling meetings around the clock with like minded entrepreneurs collaborating + brainstorming. Preparing for our next big meeting.
"It was in the very moment that I realized the power of collaboration + accountability that I knew The Workroom was more than just a meeting more than just a meet-up. It was the stomping ground of all entrepreneurs."|
