If you are an entrepreneur or a small business looking to obtain and retain quality talent and stay in business for “the long haul”, make sure purpose is the foundation of your business plan.
When it comes to providing a future for yourself and/or your budding business, marketing provides the key. Don’t sell yourself short. After all, when the customers/clients dry up, people and/or organizations will only do business with you if they know you exist.
Meet Tech Hub Hudson’s coworking member Donna Kastner of Retirepreneur. She is an entrepreneur who helps 50 to 60 somethings transition out of full-time work status into the next chapter of their professional careers.
Meet Tech Hub Hudson’s newest coworking member Vince Marchetti. He is a software developer who enjoys the flexibility of being a contract worker but decided it was time to branch out and try coworking as a chance of pace from a home office.
Coworking spaces are viable options for entrepreneurs and/or remote workers to socialize within a professional environment while staying on task. However, the key factor for coworking spaces is location, pure and simple.
As the year progresses, this is a great time to look at co-working trends and make sure space you are considering hits most of your requirements. If you find something you'd like, please be sure to share it with us!
Tech Hub Hudson’s coworking members Anouk and Rachel are remote employees for a logistics company located in Kirkland, Ohio. Anouk, a Hudson resident, accepted her position because the organization allows her to work remotely. Our venue is the ideal location for Anouk as it’s only five minutes from her home.
Rachel was brought on in May 2017 to help Anouk with her increasing coding workload. As a resident of Wadsworth, Rachel is thrilled to commute just 35 minutes to THH rather than an hour and a half to the company’s headquarters.
It’s shocking how many entrepreneurs have a difficult time explaining this when asked: “what do you do for a living?”. If you don’t know how to tell someone what you do in a succinct, easy to understand the way, an opportunity will go knocking elsewhere. What is the solution? Craft a stellar elevator pitch.
