With over 30 years of diverse experience in hospitality, management, retail, real estate, and artistry, Natasha Mohan is a woman of many talents, and she brings them all together to lead a company that she calls “a movement in happiness.” As the founder and CEO of WorkSocial, she is on a mission to connect the world of entrepreneurs across the globe who aspire to change the world. “It’s our goal to make sure that people have the space and time to create work that makes them proud and allows their companies to grow,” she says.
WorkSocial has seen 100-percent organic growth every year since its inception and has expanded from 4,400 square feet to 15,000. Through its explosive rise, Natasha has worn many hats, from developing and designing the space to handling sales and marketing. The company now serves clients from almost a dozen countries, including Germany, Israel, Spain, France and India. She genuinely connects with each of them to understand their specific requirements, and then matches them for each client who walks into the space.
Natasha has always been involved in multiple projects. As a teenager, she entered the workforce in the hospitality industry, helping with her mother’s catering company and opening restaurants throughout Michigan. From there, her career took her from office manager to the banking sector, and, finally, into real estate, when she and her husband moved to New Jersey. As she raised her kids, she owned and managed properties across their home state and New York. At the same time, her “hobby” as a makeup artist was flourishing to include runway, bridal, and e-commerce shoots. Through it all, she gained valuable insight into client services, tenant relations, and production. In 2010. She took that knowledge and she entered the realm of the shared workspace. Five years later, in 2016, she took the concept to a whole new level, and WorkSocial was born.
Natasha founded WorkSocial with the motto “Connect. Create. Grow,” and connecting people has become her “superpower” that her clients rely on. “I help connect them with the right people—from accounting to marketing, or even a lawyer—anything they need to further their businesses,” she explains.
WorkSocial also provides a space where clients can think and create—and one that can grow with them. The conference rooms and eating spaces all serve as “think tanks,” and the spaces are equipped with whiteboards, monitors, essential office supplies—everything clients need. If people want to move from a one-person desk to an eight-person desk, they can—no questions asked. “One client grew to 25 people, so we gave these clients the room to grow,” Natasha shares.
Having called Jersey City home for over 16 years, Natasha and her family love their community and have made it the mission of WorkSocial to positively impact one million lives. As part of their efforts, she and her team support local initiatives, such as the York Street Project at St. Joseph’s Home, where they help to feed mostly single women and children who have been abused. They also plant trees, microfinance, and run minority upliftment vendor programs.
