Since the advent of the hybrid workplace, the home office movement has taken hold and changed the way that many contractors, corporate workers, entrepreneurs, and small business owners get work done. While working remotely certainly has its benefits, many professionals are beginning to find that spending 40 hours or more a week in a home office isn't the best choice. According to the INAA, working remotely can blur the line between professional working environments and a person's personal life.
As it turns out, having a dedicated, safe space to work privately or collaborate with others can boost efficiency and increase morale. Working in an office environment with readily-available resources like printers and meeting rooms makes accomplishing tasks and making progress much more manageable. For business owners and startups, the prospect of being unproductive at home just won't cut it.
That's where The Runway's co-working space comes into play.
A new take on the modern-day office, co-working spaces give individuals, entrepreneurs, startups, and business owners access to private desks, office resources, inclusive amenities, and exclusive perks. Imagine a purpose-built space filled with hardworking professionals, all employed by different organizations with different goals and tasks. The building has many different rooms, from communal areas with shared workspaces to large, private offices with frosted glass. Here, workers from every background can network with like-minded colleagues while having a dedicated place to work and collaborate.
From exciting startups owners working seven days a week to individuals needing a quiet place to do research, co-working office spaces offer help provide:

If you're like many of our clients at The Runway, you're probably wondering, "Why should I choose a co-working space in North Charleston, SC, near me instead of a traditional office space?"
The truth is co-working spaces with flexible workplace options have drastically changed the way professionals work. Over the last few years, more self-employed business owners and companies have taken advantage of the savings and convenience co-working spaces offer. In the past, the only options on the table were limited by nature, at rates that seemed ridiculous, even for major companies.
On the other hand, co-working spaces offer professionals the chance to move right away to a fully-functioning, comfortable workspace in a business-centric part of town. Unlike traditional office space rentals, The Runway provides you with everything you need to be successful and grow your business, whether you're a sole proprietor or have several employees.
With a properly equipped co-working space, you can focus on accomplishing your goals and finishing your day-to-day tasks without the headaches of moving into and maintaining an expensive office. Co-working spaces offered by The Runway provide:
On the other hand, traditional office spaces often feature:
With the growing popularity of office rooms for rent in North Charleston, SC, many types of businesses and people are inhabiting these spaces, from popular companies to self-starters and everyone in between. Here is a quick glance at some of the most common professionals using The Runway's co-working office space.
Yes, you read that correctly. Remote work is often associated with Zoom calls and home offices, but remote employees can benefit greatly from co-working offices. Most remotely-employed workers enjoy having more freedom but want to use it responsibly. They choose co-working spaces because, unlike working from home, they benefit from socialization, structure, and the ability to brainstorm with others.
As is the case with remote workers, freelancing doesn't inherently mean you have a dedicated workspace or home office. Since having a home office isn't always a guarantee, we find that many freelancers flourish at The Runway. Even freelancers who have home offices often prefer to work in a more structured environment to reduce distractions and downtime. For hardworking freelancers, co-working spaces present an opportunity for more productivity and career progress. When you add access to client meeting rooms, printers, scanners, free Wi-Fi, and even a business mailing address, co-working offices are often no-brainers for freelancers.
Especially in the early stages of growth, entrepreneurs need a dedicated, productive space to grow their business and determine the next steps to success. Depending on the industry, entrepreneurial work can quickly clutter your personal space, both physically at home and mentally, in your head. That's often the first reason why entrepreneurs flock to co-working spaces â they're away from home, where they're more inclined to relax and be unproductive. Whether you're looking for a private office or simply a desk where you can work away from home, The Runway is the solution you need.
A co-working space for startups in North Charleston, SC, is a great idea because it provides a central location for full-time work, office meetings, and more. Startups are often defined by a team's ability to come together, brainstorm, produce a product, and fill a need. With The Runway's co-working office for startups, you can do exactly that.
Plus, having a co-working office space for a startup team saves money. If you've ever had the chance to grow a company from the ground up, you know first-hand how important budgets are for your business. When you rent from The Runway, you won't have to worry about expenses like management fees, insurance, power, internet, reinstatement fees, and other overhead costs.
If you own or manage a small to mid-size business, you know how expensive office space is in North Charleston. As is the case with startups, many businesses use The Runway's private meeting rooms and offices to conduct business at a fraction of the cost of a traditional office. Plus, they use the space to connect with other businesses, professionals, and freelancers who often become valuable resources. As an added bonus, co-working spaces like those at The Runway have been shown to boost morale and provide a sense of camaraderie, collaboration, and community.
Co-working and shared workspaces from The Runway are cost-effective, convenient, and full of value for hardworking people looking to get ahead. Though co-working offices have grown in popularity, with approximately 24,000 locations globally, they're still a mystery to many. If you still have questions, we invite you to contact our office today to learn more about The Runway. Until we speak, here are just a few of the most frequently asked questions we encounter.
Q. Do co-working spaces actually work? My friend uses a desk from The Runway and swears by it, but I'm not convinced.
A. The short answer to this question is a resounding "Yes!" Thousands of people use co-working offices as a reliable way to stay productive and professional. In fact, research from Harvard Business Review states that surveyed workers benefit from more motivation, higher productivity, and more valuable social interactions.

A. The Runway is a co-working office space and community that offers clients a modern, purpose-built place to work and succeed. Depending on their needs, members enjoy many options and perks, including:

CNN —Tropical Storm Ophelia is lashing parts of the East Coast with powerful winds and heavy rain ahead of its expected landfall early Saturday along North Carolina’s coast, where the threat of storm surge and dangerous flash flooding looms.The storm is expected to bring heavy rain across a large swath of the mid-Atlantic, from as far south as North Carolina and Virginia to Delaware ...
Tropical Storm Ophelia is lashing parts of the East Coast with powerful winds and heavy rain ahead of its expected landfall early Saturday along North Carolina’s coast, where the threat of storm surge and dangerous flash flooding looms.
The storm is expected to bring heavy rain across a large swath of the mid-Atlantic, from as far south as North Carolina and Virginia to Delaware and New York beginning early Saturday and continuing through the weekend.
But coastal areas in North Carolina are expected to bear the brunt of impacts as the expansive storm is poised to make landfall early Saturday, the National Hurricane Center said.
Centered about 70 miles south of Cape Lookout, North Carolina, Ophelia’s maximum sustained winds were near 70 mph, the hurricane center said Friday at 11 p.m. ET. The storm was moving at about 12 mph, and it’s expected to trek north along the East Coast over the weekend as it weakens after landfall.
“The combination of a dangerous storm surge and the tide will cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by rising waters moving inland from the shoreline,” the hurricane center warned.
• Hurricane watch: Areas north of Surf City, North Carolina, to Ocracoke Inlet are under a hurricane watch. The state also is under an emergency declaration.
• Storm surge threat: Storm surge watches and warnings are in effect from Surf City, North Carolina, to the Chesapeake Bay. A storm surge happens when strong winds cause water levels to rise and push water on-shore. Water levels began rising Friday night along some coastal areas in North Carolina.
• Dangerous flooding: Risk of flash flooding during overnight hours has increased for eastern North Carolina, according to the state’s emergency management department. Storm surge is forecast along the Pamlico and Neuse Rivers, the department warned.

Sun. 5pm ET
On Friday, communities along North Carolina’s coast had already begun seeing flooded roads. In coastal Cedar Island, water collected on Highway 12, though it was open and passable, the state transportation department said.
“But please don’t go out tonight unless you absolutely have to. There is sand and water on the roadway, and it’s dark and stormy,” the department said in a social media post.
Ophelia is on track to move across eastern North Carolina and then travel through southeastern Virginia, before heading further north across the Delmarva Peninsula Saturday and Sunday, the hurricane center said.
The storm’s strong winds could also knock out power in some places, particularly along the coast. Tropical-storm-force winds – between 39 and 73 mph – extend outward up to 300 miles from the Ophelia’s center, according to the hurricane center.
In Maryland, the governor declared an emergency due to the storm’s potential impacts.
“If you can avoid driving or being out during the storm please do so. We are expecting an extended period of strong winds, heavy rainfall, and elevated tides,” Maryland Gov. Wes Moore said.
As the storm threatens to bombard coastal areas with the worst of the winds and rain, some inland communities in southern New England will still see impacts.
“Heavy rainfall from this system could produce locally considerable flash, and urban flooding impacts across portions of the Mid-Atlantic states from North Carolina to New Jersey through Sunday,” the hurricane center said.
The storm could also bring dangerous surf and rip currents along East Coast through the weekend, the hurricane center warned.
One to 5 feet of surge is possible in some areas, particularly in inlets and rivers from around Surf City, North Carolina, to Manasquan Inlet on the New Jersey shore.
CNN’s Jamiel Lynch and Eric Zerkel contributed to this report.

District administrators presented a proposal to the board to combine Lambs and Hunley Park after receiving parent feedback at multiple community meetings. The result was a new elementary school and a new primary school on one campus.
The district has discussed combining three North Charleston schools since 2019, but presented a new option after taking parent input into consideration. Some board members attended the community meetings and listened to what parents had to say.
"I actually enjoyed all of the presentations, the community, the parent comments and input," board Vice Chair Carlotte Bailey said. "It was very good. I believe that the district heard all of the voices of the families in the community."
The consolidation of Lambs and Hunley students would take place on the current Lambs Elementary campus. It would create a primary school for students up to first grade and an elementary school for second through fifth graders.
"We owe a lot to the community for their input and to the district for listening to the input," board Chair Pamela McKinney said. "I think this option is a wonderful solution for all of those scholars."
This option would leave W. B. Goodwin elementary untouched and some board members questioned how this would make Goodwin families feel.
"Should Goodwin parents decide they would like to have their children at these new facilities, would they be able to?" board member Carol Tempel asked.
The answer was no due to capacity limits, but district administrators say they made the decision to leave Goodwin alone after listening to feedback and they don't expect parents to be upset by this.
"Build it and they will come doesn’t always happen," said Chief Operating Officer Jeff Borowy, who organized the community meetings and presented the proposal to the board.
Board voted to move the proposal to next week's Nov. 13 agenda, at which time they will vote whether to approve it. If approved, construction for the new school facilities should begin in January 2025 and the schools' doors would open in August 2027.
BE THE FIRST TO COMMENT
Borowy also said if approved, district administrators would come back to the board to ask for a reallocation of current project revenues to support additional maintenance and improvements at Goodwin Elementary School.

No. 9 UNC Basketball (9-3, 1-0 ACC) completed their 2023-24 non-conference slate with a resounding 105-60 victory over Charleston Southern (4-9, 0-0 Big South).

No. 9 UNC Basketball (9-3, 1-0 ACC) completed their 2023-24 non-conference slate with a resounding 105-60 victory over Charleston Southern (4-9, 0-0 Big South). It's extremely unlikely that history will remember this game - blowout wins in buy games generally aren't. I'll certainly remember it as my first game at the Dean E. Smith Center, but there are a few unique things that may cause this game to stick in the minds of others as well.
For one, this night featured a pregame tribute to former Tar Heel player and color commentator Eric Montross, who passed away on December 17 following a battle with cancer. Postgame, head coach Hubert Davis, Montross' teammate at UNC, commented on his emotions during the moment of silence:
""Very sad, very hard. Having lost my mother at a young age, you know the road ahead for Eric's wife and his children. And every day, it gets worse. So my heart goes out to their family.""- Hubert Davis, on the Montross tribute
All in all, very tastefully done by UNC. RIP Eric Montross and condolences to the Montross family.
Second, the Dean Dome was buzzing. Despite the fact this was a late December non-conference game against the No. 339 team on KenPom, the fans showed out. It's difficult to say how much the Montross tribute played a role in the noticeably high attendance, but in any case, the Tar Heel faithful were fully invested from the opening tip to the final buzzer. It made for an incredible environment even despite the major on-court imbalance.
Hubert Davis' squad seemed to feed off the energy in the arena, shooting 56.2% from the field, 42.3% from three, and 85.7% from the line. Six Tar Heels finished with 10 or more points, and 105 points is the highest single-game total registered by UNC Basketball since a 113-point performance against NC State back on February 5, 2019.
With the win, the Tar Heels improve to 9-3 on the season. Here are three takeaways from their final tuneup before ACC play.
Senior guard RJ Davis turned in a stellar performance against Charleston Southern, finishing with 20 points and 10 assists while shooting 7-13 from the field and 3-6 from three-point range. This game marked his eighth consecutive contest with 20 or more points as well as his first career double-double of points and assists. Davis also became the first Tar Heel in program history to log a game with 20 points, 10 assists, five steals, and zero turnovers.
Davis' play this season has some publications naming him to their midseason All-American teams, a fact which Davis downplayed following the game:
Entering conference play, RJ Davis will look to make an All-ACC team for the first time after earning All-ACC Honorable Mention a season ago. If he keeps up his excellent play, there may be even more presitigous national honors coming his way.
Sophomore forward Jalen Washington had himself a night as well, tallying 17 points and seven rebounds, both career highs. He far exceeded his season averages of 4.4 points and 2.4 rebounds per game and led the way for UNC's 43 bench points.
Washington flashed two-way stretch potential with a pair of made threes and a pair of blocks amid a 7-9 shooting night. He can become a dynamic weapon for UNC Basketball if he continues to develop, especially as the program looks ahead to the departure of frontcourt mainstay Armando Bacot. His production versus CSU was a promising sign, but it remains to be seen whether Washington will become a bigger factor in the Tar Heel rotation this season. He has seen action in all 12 of UNC's games thus far, but ranks ninth on the team at just 9.2 minutes per game.
A less competitive contest afforded Hubert Davis the luxury to try out some new lineups. His experimental rotations looked disjointed at times but at least provided a general idea of who can run together and who cannot. Postgame, Davis referenced the flexibility he has being able to throw multiple ball handlers on the floor at once between RJ Davis, Elliot Cadeau, and Seth Trimble.
Davis also discussed putting Jalen Washington and Armando Bacot on the floor together, something he had tried in practice but not in a game until he did so against Charleston Southern.
""In practice lately, we've been playing [Jalen Washington] and Armando together, and we had them out there tonight. They're two bigs, but they're different. It gives us a bigger and different look, it helps us in terms of rebounding, and I'm really happy that [Jalen] had a great game tonight.""- Hubert Davis, on UNC's frontcourt
There didn't seem to be any obvious issues with Washington and Bacot sharing the court, especially given the former's ability to stretch the floor. Hubert Davis apparently liked what he saw, so this may be a look we continue to see throughout the season.
The Tar Heels will open ACC play visiting Pittsburgh on January 2 with tipoff at 7 PM EST.

Smiling faces and beautiful places. It’s more than just a slogan, it’s an actual location very close to us in the Charlotte area. Here’s where you can find the friendliest town in North Carolina. It’s not only the friendliest in North Carolina but has been called the friendliest in the South for 125 years. So, what is so friendly about this town. Where is it, because we would like to go.
Tryon, North Carolina has been named by multiple sources as the friendliest town in North Carolina. We consulted with Only In Your State about the matter. Not only is it friendly but it is steeped in rich history. Cherokee native tribes are thought to have used that area between Charlotte and Asheville as bountiful hunting for thousands of years before the arrival of the Spanish. They got there in 1540 looking for gold but moved on. Tryon got it’s first post office back in 1839 and was given its name after North Carolina governor William Tryon.
Being named a friendly town is one thing but given the title, friendliest in the South is quite something. “Feeling like family” is all part of the experience no matter where you go in Tryon. Local natural beauty like Pearson Falls abounds. The beautiful scenery is part of what attracts people to Tryon. Here’s where you can find the friendliest town in North Carolina. It is just an hour or so from Charlotte. And its known for friendly people, quaint shopping and dining, rich equestrian history and so much more.
One of the reasons why I love Tryon, North Carolina is the Tryon International Equestrian Center. Technically it is in the town of Mill Spring right at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains. I have been there many times for equestrian events. But there is also abundant shopping and really great restaurants. For more information on Tryon International just go here.
It’s a tough world to be single in (speaking from experience). But how does North Carolina rank for singles compared to other places in the US? Not that great in all honestly. Our friends at WalletHub conducted a study of the Best & Worst Cities For Singles. And the results were, well, interesting. The best city in North Carolina for singles? Well, it wasn’t Raleigh and it wasn’t Charlotte. (Good now I don’t feel so bad about myself!)
An interesting statistic that WalletHub shared with us is that nearly 47% of all U.S. adults are unmarried. It sure doesn’t feel that way! But only 42% of those single adults are interested in a relationship or casual dating right now. Now it’s making a little more sense.
To conduct this study WalletHub compared more than 180 U.S. cities across 35 key indicators of dating-friendliness. So what type of data tells us how a city fares for singles? For this study, WalletHub used data including “the share of the population that is single”, “the number of online dating opportunities”, and “the average price for a two-person meal”.
South Carolina actually came out better than North Carolina on this list, with the only two SC cities included topping every North Carolina one. And the North Carolina city that’s the best for singles? I never would have guessed. Keep reading to see the top 10 as well as where each Carolina city ranked. You can read the full WalletHub study here.
