Featured Satellite Staff: Barbara Sprenger

I live and breathe coworking these days, and the greatest part of that is meeting and chatting with our wonderful members. You’re all doing such exciting things!

I’ve lived in the Santa Cruz Mountains for many years, raising my four kids here. Over time, though, I’ve gone through a lot of iterations: living in England for three years (two kids born there); living in West Virginia for eight years with no running water, growing most of our food (two more kids); starting a technology business and growing its two niche products to 90% of the world market before selling to a Fortune 1000 business; and in the middle, getting degrees in Economics and Public Policy.

You may notice the software that is in the background of everything you do at the Satellite: Deskworks. That’s the main thing I work on these days, making it easier for people to create the workplace of the future. A future in which people can work anywhere in the world virtually while connecting in their chosen community, avoiding commutes and the resultant CO2 emissions, working closer to their kids, and generally improving their quality of life.

That’s why I’m here.

International Coworking Day 2022

International Coworking Day 2022

Dear Members & Friends,

Please join us for a FREE day of coworking in celebration of International Coworking Day on August 9, 2022. We are opening our doors to all for a chance to try our space, meet neighbors, and be productive!

At Satellite Workplaces, we believe a new, healthy work-life balance, coupled with vibrant, active communities, can be created using remote technology tools and local, connected workspace: a 21st Century Village in which people can minimize commutes and work anywhere in the world while physically living and connecting in their chosen community.

On August 9th, we are celebrating our commitment to providing comfortable, connected, affordable community workplaces. We believe local coworking spaces have the power to enhance walkable communities and vibrant town cores, reduce CO2 emissions and gridlocked roads, and improve workers’ quality of life.

Please join us on August 9th at any of our locations for a full day of coworking, on us! Bring your friends and get to work!

See you soon,

Your Satellite Team

CEO Barbara Sprenger Hosts Disaster Funding Virtual Conference

CEO Barbara Sprenger Hosts Disaster Funding Virtual Conference

​As a service to our members and the wider community, CEO Barbara Sprenger hosted a discussion to share what she has learned in applying for disaster relief funding for her businesses. For those of you who were unable to be on the call, the following information was provided. Please share with your coworkers, friends and family.  Also, please comment here with any additional information you discover. Both the questions and answers seem to change by the hour, so we hope to be a useful resource to our members and your networks as well.
Hang in there. Be well.

Home IT Support for Our Members

Home IT Support for Our Members

You are working remote. Your colleagues and team members are working remote. Your friends and family are working remote. Everyone is now working remote.

But business—and your bills—go on.

If you no longer have access to your workspace, network or office, how are you carrying on? Our members now need a good, connected work environment at home.

In an effort to help you keep your businesses up and running during these uncertain times, we are offering Home IT Setup and Support to our members.

Here are some of the most valuable and relevant services we’re offering:

  • Get access to your office’s file server via a new VPN setup
  • Have office phone calls forwarded to your mobile device
  • Redirect email
  • Set up a cloud-based file server
  • Create rolling backups on a remote server so all data is backed up
  • Analyze your home WiFi signals and improve if necessary by upgrading routers and/or access points
  • Connect teams via phone or video conference calls.
  • Troubleshoot and setup printers and devices
  • Website updates to keep your members and potential members updated about protocol, openings, etc.
  • Home IT check-up

Our team can do most of this remotely, which means wherever you and your members are, we can likely help.

If you’re a Satellite Member, these services are offered at a reduced rate. If you’re not a Satellite Member, we are still here to help. Contact us to start a conversation.
