Creating Space for All with Maggie Segrich of Sesh Coworking

Headshot size for WP (9)

When Maggie Segrich moved from New York to Houston, she learned that Houstonians would not feel comfortable going to a jewelry shop in a home unlike New Yorkers do. So she needed a space to set up shop. After meeting her business partner, Meredith, Sesh Coworking was created.

In today’s episode, we sit down with Maggie Segrich, co-founder of Sesh Coworking, Houston’s first female centered workspace that is a safe and inclusive community. She shares with us the lessons she’s learned, how Covid affected the then brand-new Sesh, what you should know before going into business with a partner, and so much more. 

“We are strong allies for the LGBTQ+ community as well as the BIPOC community. And we have everything from co-working to there’s a pop up shop that’s like, right across the hall from me, and it’s where my sweatshirt came from. We have art galleries, there’s doctors here, like it’s an amazing community. And it truly represents the diversity that is Houston.” – Maggie Segrich

Our Favorite Quotes:

  • “The other thing I learned during that time was I took Facebook off my phone. I did it in New York, because I was being trolled pretty hard from some locals who didn’t like what I was doing with the chamber. And I realized having Facebook on my phone was just, I was giving them a free pass to access my time with every single notification that would pop up.” – Maggie Segrich
  • “I think my perspective and outlook on life is the world is just a bunch of open doors. And it’s whether or not I walk through them and have that experience. And so for me, I’m always going to poke my head in the open door just to see what’s on the other side. Because like, I might like it.” – Maggie Segrich
  • “I know that if I ask for help, someone will say yes. And I think that’s a very empowering thing that we constantly need to remind everyone of.” – Maggie Segrich
