This week, I am looking for some feedback on the blog post.
I attended a co-working “summit” last week (well, mostly last weekend).
It was a conference that was done all online over a 24 hour period with several “sessions” that we could attend to learn more about operating and growing co-working spaces. Everything from money to explaining co-working to folks who have never heard of it.
Have you ever heard this “If you’re the smartest person in the room, you’re in the wrong room.”? What does that mean to you? I was certainly not the smartest person in the room at the summit, but was happy to learn from folks who have been at this co-working thing for awhile and how they are making it successful.
Most of the people I have met along this journey are younger than I, which is different for me since most of my friends and associates are older. Most are male, again unique for me since most of the people I associate with are women.
Why am I telling you all of this? It’s simple, I am unique in this endeavor and you are unique being part of this particular co-working community. A lot of these other communities, with whom I connected, are near a downtown area, in larger metropolitan cities.
So we are unique beginning a co-working space in the suburbs for the Gen X and Yers.
How do we best serve this age group?
What is important to us?
How many of us are starting up a business?
