I have been working as a freelance graphic artist in the Austin area for about 5 years now and I am SO tired of being lonely at home all the time. Networking is ok but still.. I do it all alone.
I've been thinking about the possibility of starting a co-op... co-working environment for people like me, that could serve as a networking opportunity, a hang out, someplace to bounce ideas off each other etc...
I would love for it to include a conference room for meeting clients, as well as possibly even a front desk, retail environment where small business owners could come in and view portfolios to hire co op members etc.. I've considered adding in a nice laser print center, seo aggressive website with online portfolio, monthly ads in local community paper (( which actually is still widely read )).
What would draw you to join a co op? What would you be willing to pay for such a place? Think of it as a cross between the starbucks, local library and high energy workplace.
I am so right brained that all these ideas are pure mush in my head. I never seem to be able to look ahead and consider pitfalls etc..
Any blunt opinions out there for me? I'd love advice from all walks of home working entrepreneurs!!
ok so I did it manually.. good old notepad.. it looks decent and it works.. but NOW.. my question is this: After you successfully submit the form... it takes you to a page that says thank you its been sent... which I cant edit... its all done in CSS.. and ack... any good websites for learning basic css in a hurry?
BTW, I DID ask this client if they would be needing the quote page.. cause i knew it was over my ability.. they said no.. and then later changed their mind... I dont think I would have taken it had I known.. but Im learning alot and thank GOD hes patient...
TY for any answers out there... cyberdonuts to anyone who can help.

So uhm... here`s my next question.. and it may be too long to even explain... I copied the form data from a viewsource on the old site.. and pasted it and thats how I got the page to work finally... but now, when I take it into front page and format it.. just but adding spaces and breaks... now it doesnt work.. ;c( So I have functional but not pretty.. or pretty but not functional.. why doesnt this work?
Thank you to anyone who spends time reading this and helping me...
