Why hello there!
I took an unofficial mini break from blogging for about a week. With Thanksgiving and other holiday craziness, I needed to take a breather. I blame it on the boogie, or poor planning but more so the boogie.
Man, do I have a whole bunch to get you guys caught up on and will be frantically blogging all weekend into next week. Thank goodness for my honey fix. I mean, I do love honey but in this case I am referring to The B:Hive. Being a member of a coworking space is probably one of the best things that has happened to me this year. Ever since i’ve started a company fueled on my hopes and dreams, I’ve needed the proper setting in which to keep me motivated. If you’re a veteran entrepreneur or new to the scene, a melting pot of great like minded people, brilliant environment, and fun is what is necessary for you to be successful. I promise!
This is especially true since I am purging a ton of my belongings, packing the rest into boxes, and moving (just across town) in a few months. My life has been completely all over the place but knowing that I can escape, collect myself, and work in my office away from home is such a great feeling.
Being a member of a dope coworking space sure as hell beats going to a coffee shop. Don’t get me wrong, I love coffee shops for playdates and…well coffee but you can spend hours in a coffee shop surrounded by townies and hipsters, spend $5-$15, and leave feeling like you still have so much to do. Plus, it’s not an office. If you work for yourself I am sure the last thing you want to do is go to a coffee shop to meet with a client or a sponsor. Unprofessional and unclassy!
The amount of amazing people I meet in my shared office space is intense and so wonderful. It’s refreshing to work alongside people from different industries and backgrounds. I’ve also met folks in which I can collaborate on future projects with. It’s a melting pot of coolness that you wouldn’t necessarily get while working in your PJs at home. In most coworking space, you build a community in which you can have fun and also stay focused.
Anyway, I didn’t mean for this to be an on going rant and rave about my office away from home…or did I?! I have been here for hours today working on my business ventures of Sprinkles and Booze for 2014 and feel more motivated and blessed than ever. I met some rad new people, listened to some Radiohead, and got a ton of work done today. I feel like it was a Friday well spent and I look forward to many more days of business growth and adventures at The B:Hive.
Lots of updates coming within the next week! Guard your loins, hold on to your knickers, and as always…
