Just finished Alex Hillman’s Coworking Workshop and I am eager to make progress. Major take away: Establish your core values, write an “identity statement” and every decision you make will stem from that. It’s like Stephen Covey’s concept of being “principle centered”.
Vice-Chair of the Seattle Collaborative Space Alliance! The monthly meeting of space owners (still called Coworking Seattle on the website) is expanding to include more types of collaborative spaces. It’s also officially becoming a 501(c)3, thanks to the dedication of Brian of Eastlake Mail and Chelsea of Office Nomads, and I’m on the board!
Attending the Global Coworking Conference in Austin in two weeks!!
Improving the Coworking Wiki. We’ll be kicking off a big project in Austin to make vast improvements to the Coworking Wiki. I say “we” because I’m helping with fundraising and writing copy. More details to come when the project launches! I’ve been spending a lot of time at Office Nomads while working on this project, and love becoming a part of this community!
