The Chief Coworker's Vision

Paula Blair

The idea resulting in SOAR was birthed in 2015 after I saw a 2 page full color article with pictures of a new coworking space in Oregon.  I devoured it on the Sunday it arrived.   From that point to now, I have had coworking on the brain!  It is a labor of love every single day I come to work.

We launched in July 2017 with private offices, meeting rooms, and co-working desks, and have received glowing testimonies and reviews from coworkers and the community. 

My background is comprised of a hodge podge of group insurance underwriting, recruiting, church leadership and project management.  I consider myself the Chief Co-Worker here at SOAR.  I sit in the Shared Space Seating so I experience everything co-workers experience.


TEDx, the City of Tampa, and Hillsborough County, Florida have given some special nods to SOAR. 

We are an approved practice site for TEDx speakers and provide them with a space to practice at no charge.

We are also a Certified Minority Owned Small Business by both the City of Tampa and Hillsborough County, Florida.  We’ll gladly furnish a Certificate to any City of Tampa or Hillsborough County entity wanting to do business with SOAR.

I am so thankful for this great blessing and opportunity.  Every new day is a new experience.  Thank you to our Co-workers and the Community.  YOU are our why, and our success is also your success.

I travel frequently with my job and sometimes need a place to work outside of home. SOAR adds value by providing me with a space to not only be productive…, but also network with new faces.”
