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.
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!
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.
