COWORKING: COME FOR THE SNACKS, STAY FOR THE COMMUNITY
Sep 23, 2020 Season 1 Episode 15

Abbey Woodcock is a writer, creative and owner of a co-working space in beautiful upstate New York called Freelance Co-Op, which is an online and physical coworking space that connects creative freelancers with the resources they need to be professional business owners that are in control of their own story and their own success.

We talk about  coworking, community, freelancing, and the business of creativity. She says, "a successful life is fueled by passion." I could not agree more.

I talk to Abbey in-depth about coworking spaces:

  • and building community
  • are more than just waffle stations and amazing lighting
  • can help a freelancer build a business
  • bringing back professionals to rural areas on big city salaries
  • are not just found in big cities

We also discuss that there needs to be a marriage between business and creativity, because they are not mutually exclusive.

In this episode we also discuss how small towns can be test cases. Professionals can relocate to these towns or come back home, because of community. If there is a community of successful, motivated and creative people waiting for them, there is a reason to come and grow, infuse resources and cultivate new business. People who experiment and take risks will keep growing.

Abbey is also author of the book, What They Hear When You Write. A book where you can learn any client's voice and create authentic, effective copy. Plus she’s a chainsaw instructor.
