Helping reformed criminals become social entrepreneurs. This is huge. 
People who have been to prison may never want to commit a crime again, but little exists to help them pursue a better path. Corners2cornerstones aims to provide that path.

Yes! Thank you! Please add all of your spaces to http://sandycoworking.crowdmap.com which we are publicizing as the hub for finding shared space. It'd be awesome to have your spaces on there!

I wonder if the positive environmental effect of city dwellers using mass transit instead of cars is eclipsed by the waste generated by daily Seamless orders.

Fisher points out how disconnected our public policies are from a future in which as much as 45% of the workforce will be made up of entrepreneurs, freelancers, and other members of the “contingent” workforce by 2020"

If you could rebuild the concept of a boss from the ground up, what would it look like? What would you keep; what would you change?

As a thought exercise, the most interesting model to emulate is the relationship between a (high-functioning) board of a start-up an entrepreneur. A great boss should provide guidance, focus, encouragement, tough love, accountability and outside perspective. For starters.

There’s a particularly awful kind of feeling to have when you’re a coworking space owner. It’s the one you feel when you’re looking around your space, seeing some seats sitting empty while others are filled by people on their headphones staring at their screens. People come in, they go to their desk, they work, they leave. There’s maybe some chitchat. 

You planned some ice-breaker events and had decent attendance, but for the most part people just don’t respond. 

When you got started, it was better. There was excitement and energy. People wanted to help. Now, it seems like people just want to be customers. They just want to be served. 

What happened? Wasn’t this supposed to be a community? Where did it go? 

If you resonate with this, then you and your community may be in a cultural trough. It’s not unusual; every community experiences a natural ebb and flow as people come and go and time marches on. People who were excitedly helping you get started move on, or become complacent. 

You come up against the hard reality that you can’t force people to want to participate in a community. 

So now what do you do?

This is where our conversation begins. While it may seem impossible to dig a stagnant community culture out of its trough, it’s not—we’ve been there before. 

The trick to revitalizing a community’s culture is to think of it as if you’re starting a new community from within. You start with a basic question: what are the unfulfilled wants and needs of present and future community members? 

Then: how can you take these needs and create opportunities for people to see how they can fulfill those needs through your community? 

With the right kind of focus and effort, you can have a vibrant culture bursting forth once again in relatively short order. 

Let’s talk about how. Over the past several years, we (Susan and Tony, hi!) have been running programs in our spaces that have consistently revitalized our communities. Join us Thursday, August 5 at 2:00 ET (see your time zone here) for a special informational session where we’ll dive into what it takes to revitalize your community in the best possible way. 

Space is limited, because that’s how video chats work. Register now and join the conversation!


Cheers,
Tony + Susan

Good question. I've done a bunch of resources (http://nwc.co/job-crisis-references) and am a big fan of the research done at Small Biz Labs and Emergent Research, but honestly the stats just aren't designed for the notion of people working at something other than jobs :)

Who's the real bad guy when an otherwise good company does evil things? How can we change the system to account for that?

The job crisis gets fixed when we stop waiting around for someone to hand them to us and we start taking it upon ourselves to create the jobs we've always wanted for ourselves.

This Friday, Chris Guillebeau, Brian DiFeo, and a bunch of awesome world-changers will be gathering to discuss how to make this happen more awesomely. Join us!

The role of work in our lives is changing forever. Between traditional employment and traditional entrepreneurship hide increasingly popular ways of working that have to date flown under the radar. ...

An incredible dining experience. Come here and get to know the staff; don't be afraid to be swept away by whatever happens while you're here. This is a place to not just eat, but to discover what Italy is really about.
