I was picking up the phone, (I am that old fashioned) and shouting at people to come along to all our antics next week.
Reading a blog is a deliciously more concise way for you to receive information than suffering me ranting down the phone at you.
So here we go:
We shipped podcast number 27 this week, where Phil chatted about how far we had come, not in a self-congratulatory way – more of a “how did we manage to get here” way.
Of course, as any sensible person will be happy to let you know, progress comes from small daily steps, so our shock is unwarranted, we have been good at nearly doing something meaningful for a while now.
Which leads to Philip’s weekly “Working Out Loud” blog where he shares the success and horror of our journey.
The writing and podcasting are helping us take action on our own goals and the @Work Hubs coworking destiny.
WTF is Working Out Loud?
One of Lisette’s key recommendations is the Working Out Loud book and framework for connecting your remote team. So I cheated and made one of my action points from the workshop to start ‘WOL’ group for coworking members here @Work Hubs later next month.
Cheated? Well, we were going to do it anyway.
Bring Your Own Breakfast & Write Your Own Blog
So these next two are not as smart as John Stepper and his “WOL” book, but they are pretty darned close.
Every two weeks we host a breakfast here at @Work Hubs for people that are “less than passionate” about networking, pitching, structure and formality.
We have been running some kind of breakfast meeting for the last four years here @Work Hubs, from these breakfasts, TAGtribe events, OuiShare crew and Copass Camps the community around our little Euston Coworking Space is varied and eclectic, this open breakfast brings all those people together regardless of their industry.
Wow, are we forever solving problems! A group of us from @90Mainyard and @Work Hubs started to meet every Friday for two hours and write a blog, report, proposal or webpage copy.
We called it Right Club which sounded more like a rancid political party than a group of Freelancers being self-motivated.
So we renamed it Write Club and have been publishing ever since! We have a small, very un-spammy and very un-self-promotional Facebook group where we share writing advice with each other.
The Fridge, It Really Ties The Room Together
The last paragraph of this post is devoted to The Fridge, it is not just a fridge it is a food sharing fridge where people from the area around @Work Hubs here in Euston can drop their leftover food and people like you can pick it up.
It all works via an app named Olio which, like us is on a mission to combat food waste, from all the conversations we have about saving the world from our little coworking bunker this is the one that enables us to make a dent AND connect with other local residents and businesses.
Thanks For Reading! Come and say hi soon!
