Follow Your Mojo
Coming Up @ Mojo
Your mojo is your life force. It’s what fuels the highest enjoyment of your family, your work, your community … your self. Mojo is the energy, passion, verve, drive and joie de vivre that makes the difference between a great day and an average day for you and the world.
At Mojo Coworking it’s our mission to provide resources for the maximum focus and diffusion of creative energy to elevate our individual, community, commercial and global well being.
We offer a unique coworking environment that plugs you in to the energy of collaboration, inspiration and ideas that you can use to be your best – socially, creatively, entrepreneurially, consciously, joyfully.
Come check us out and see what you think. Or, more importantly, what you feel.
In addition to serving as a Mojo mentor and overall coworking advocate, you’ll find me working most days as the creative director at Native – a full service advertising and marketing agency I started back in 2004.
Mojo Space Coordinator
Let me know how I can help you engage at Mojo. If you have a special request, don’t know how to work the copier, forgot how to make coffee … I can help. Do you have an idea for a speaker or performer? Let me know. You might also catch me playing guitar or drums now and then.
While Craig may be the front man at Mojo, I’m the spirit and support behind the scenes. You should be nice to me because I make really good treats for Mojo members.
Back in April of 2011, Mojo Coworking opened its doors in Asheville. The driving force behind Mojo has always been energy. Creative, social and entrepreneurial energy. Our goal is to bring the energetic minds and bodies from our community together to encourage and inspire cross pollination through ideas, stories, work and play.
People seem to like it here and our membership has grown steadily. To keep up with demand, we have expanded Mojo Coworking to a new larger facility at 60 N. Market Street.
At Mojo Coworking, we also believe that the future will be built by independent small business and the future of small business depends on the ability for people to move quickly from ideas to action. Ideas need heat. Heat requires energy. Mojo creates energy. Simple as that. Come check us out at get your Mojo working.
- Having a place like Mojo was a lifesaver. I had planned to set up in a coffee shop, but that really would not have afforded me the amount of quiet and focus I needed to do my job that day. The experience of getting set up was good as well.
- Your new site makes me wish I was there now. I feel the energy coming through the screen! Good work and no wonder you're towards capacity!
- Thanks so much for the community use of your space.
- I loved visiting MojoCoworking for the FIRST time and enjoyed presenting in the beautiful and consciously created space. Thank you Craig for such a synergistic and dynamic environment in the heart of downtown AVL. We are blessed to have you here. www.eartheartnetwork.com
- Thank you @FastFedora and @Mojocoworking for bringing #LeanStartup conference to benefit #avlbiz and every other sector. Great job!
- Writing at @MojoCoworking of AVL today & diggin it. Nice people, comfy seats, bright, clean work space. Good mojo. #sorry #couldnthelpmyself
- Mojo has increased my business in 2 weeks, Its the deal! Come join!
- When I first heard the concept of MoJo Coworking, I was instantly impressed. The model is great. I decided to facilitate my Microsoft training classes in their conference room. What a great decision! The atmosphere is professional and energetic. Instead of the standard projector and boring design, they offer a 55 inch color television that plugs right into your computer and the walls are lined with local art. Thanks to MoJo, my training classes will not be in a typical mind-numbing training room. The conference room is designed for creativity, synergy and mojo.
- Thank you so much Craig! Amazing things happened in this space while you were gone - paradigm shift in the way we do business - more heart-driven focus, more connection, social care and devotion.
- The Mojo conference room is perfect for my small-group leadership programs. I bring teens from across the U.S. to Asheville, and there's nowhere better to run technology-intensive workshops.
- Being at Mojo has been a big part of enjoying my time in Asheville!

Coworking is redefining the way we do work. The idea is simple: independent professionals and those with workplace flexibility work better together than they do alone. Coworking answers the question that so many face when working from home: “Why isn’t this as fun as I thought it would be?”
Beyond just creating better places to work, coworking spaces are built around the idea of community-building and sustainability. Coworking spaces agree to uphold the values set forth by those who developed the concept in the first place: collaboration, community, sustainability, openness, and accessibility.
In addition to the ideas covered in this description from wiki.coworking.com, Mojo Coworking introduces a few other core values as part of our mission:
- Collaboration to inspire social energy
- Cross pollination to expand creative energy
- Networking to grow entrepreneurial energy
- Conscious minds lead to conscious action
- Playfulness to unleash freedom, passion and joy
- SHOW ALL
