👋 Welcome to Week 50’s summary.
Here’s what you may have missed this week in coworking….
🤯 So we’re already (finally) on week 50.
That means there’s just 3 weeks left of 2020, and we are now deep into what is usually one of the slowest periods for coworking sector.
During recent chats with community managers and operators, many shared that they’re feeling pretty tired, exhausted and burned out right now. And so, I invite you this week, with a lighter summary, to take a moment for yourselves.
It’s OK to feel like you do. It’s OK not to feel like you’re “smashing all the targets” and running the world’s “most engaged community” right now. It’s OK.
Please try and make some time these weeks to do something for you. In the meantime we’ll all be here, and around, over the next few weeks and into 2021 to chat, reengage and start rebuilding again together.
On behalf of all your included ambassadors,
The Coworking Library has launched a challenge alongside the RGCS to source, share and promote even more coworking research, with a focus on Inclusion, Diversity and Equality.
The inspiring team at co.co.haus are receiving a 2x match from a local non-profit on any micro-loans they receive online. Lend anything from $25 and help them support local businesses with a state of the art multimedia studio.
