In the midst of assembling your space, putting together your marketing plan, gathering your supporters and ticking off all the boxes to open and operate a coworking space, are you stopping to reflect on “the why”? 

Why are you doing this now? Why the coworking model? Why is it yours to do?

As we approach International Coworking Day on August 9th, Iris and Laura feel that this is a perfect moment for this reflection. A collective reflection on the why.

Why do we do this work? Why do we believe in the movement of working collaboratively? Why do we think it will heal our world?

Iris and Laura came to this work, like moths to a flame, because we are systemic thinkers, co-creators, and heart-centered makers. We felt the intention behind this movement, the desire to collectively change the world for the better, from the moment that we each felt the “coworking spark”. Coworking felt like home.

So, we invite you to take a moment this week and reflect on that day that coworking found you. The morning you awoke to find that the dream to co-create a community of care was already seeded in your mind and heart. 

Why coworking? Why does it matter? Why is it yours to do?

This week, comment here or tag us on social media and tell us YOUR why!

Wishing you a connected International Coworking Day and, we highly recommend that you share your “why” with your community. Use this opportunity to invite them to take personal action, to step into the work with you, to join you on this path to deepen community. 

And, know you are not alone on this journey. We are here for you, to share your stories, to celebrate your successes, to validate your struggles, to offer hugs and understanding.  We are your place of belonging.

In love & solidarity,

Iris and Laura
