Chris Estrada is the founder of Operation Spot and the host of the Coworking Success Podcast. He is very passionate about inspiring 1 million young entrepreneurs to join coworking spaces because he believes that coworking spaces are essential for success as an entrepreneur.

Coworking spaces are all the rage right now for entrepreneurs and I wanted to get Chris on the show to talk about them. We discuss everything you need to know about finding and researching a coworking space, how to make the most use of them and he drops some very valuable networking bombs.
