After our winter break we hosted our first meetup in 2013 at Uptown. Kelly and Kerrie met for the first time, both attending regularly, but always missing each other. Michele joined for the first time and Wendy and Betsy came after joining us for the Holiday Party.
We switched our meeting format slightly to a brief introduction round, an update about our location search, and then rest of our meeting with lots of laughter, anecdotes, real world problems, asking and giving feedback on business ideas and projects.
In particular, we talked about an upcoming very "soft" software launch from Betsy and Wendy, listening in on Kerrie's engagement in the Genesee-Schmitz Council and recent developments, Kellys preparations for her upcoming strategy meeting, Michele's interest in using the coworking space for her curriculum work, Christine's future business ideas and path to start the coworking space with Stefan and Stefan's project work on backyard cottages for aging in place. We joked how we could age together in our coworking space and how we can apply the Wendy's timeline showing the time left on our watch.
We talked about the possibility of meeting weekly for a drop in session in a temporary space for the next couple of weeks to get a feel how to cowork in style. We also set a date for our next coworking meetup at Uptown on Tuesday 1/15 at 12 pm, as well as another Coworking Night Out on Friday 1/18 at Mind Unwind at 7 pm.
