When you work at a local coworking spot like Createscape over a WeWork, you are supporting small business in the community and getting a personal connection with the owners. We are celebrating Austin Coworking Day on September 27 with free coworking and a party with barbecue, drinks, and live music.
Native Grocery next door is fully stocked with great local selections of everything you could want, and the management is so nice and always open to suggestions of new items to carry in stock. They’ve had great homemade tacos since around the time they opened in early 2018, but not many know that they also just recently started a brand new Mediterranean menu as well.
Since I’ve gotten so used to a lengthier daily commute over the last couple years, I just wanted to share some things that I think make driving in Austin a little more pleasant.
Dogs at the office are a stress reliever for everyone. Need proof? In 2018, BusinessInsider.com wrote about a study that looked at whether office pets reduce stress levels and boost productivity.
Coworking is a great way to help you strike a more comfortable balance in your work life because you can be at the office for eight hours -- or even 10 hours -- and still carve out some me-time and heart-healthy, non-work-related breaks. Chatting with other Createscape members is a great way to reduce anxiety and also refresh your creativity. Here are some ways to unwind during the work day:
The word “coworking” was established in 1999 by Bernard De Koven. He wrote, “When I coined the word coworking, I was describing a phenomenon I called ‘working together as equals.’” In 2005 the first official coworking space was opened in San Francisco by a computer programmer named Brad Neuberg. The office, which didn’t seem to have a name, was inspired by hackerspaces of the mid to late 1990s.
More than anything, having a place like Createscape to go to in the summer allows me to keep a clear focus on work versus play. So to those of you coworking with us in June: come for the cool air-conditioning, stay for the great people!
