WWWE 011: In this episode, Peggy shares how after a 30-year career, an unexpected job loss in 2016 drove her to entrepreneurship. When she couldn’t find work to match her skill set, she took a new path and reinvented herself. This former engineer is now the owner of Office Evolution of the Triad in Greensboro, NC, offering office space, virtual office services, coworking space, and other support services to small business owners. Hear the woes and the wins of Peggy’s journey and how she's empowering other entrepreneurs to win.
More About Peggy Barron-Antolin:
Peggy began her career as an engineer and worked in a variety of industries, technologies, and organizations during her 30-year career. She is excited about the next phase of her career as a business owner – and especially with Office Evolution. She chose Office Evolution because the business model offers entrepreneurs so much more than the traditional office rental market. Greensboro has a vibrant, entrepreneurial small business community that will benefit from the affordable and flexible space and services offered by Office Evolution.
Opening my first Office Evolution was a big achievement for me. We had well over 100 people attend our grand opening event. At that point, it was the largest crowd at an OE opening. This was a big success for me because most of those attending were people that I knew through networking, and they were there to support me personally.
Outside of work, Peggy enjoys equestrian sports and is a member of the Sedgefield Hunt and Triangle Area Polo Club. She is also a Rotarian.
