Ep 009 Being a Better Freelancer by Working Better Together with Alex Hillman
Jun 16 15
Joining me this episode is Alex Hillman, or as I call him, "The Hillman." Basically if you start researching coworking on Google, you'll find all sorts of ties back to Alex and the the strides he's made for the industry and the movement through his space, Indy Hall.
Alex and I connected a while back when what would eventually be WIMPspace was only a blip on the radar. I've been an admirer of Alex's not only because of his work in coworking, but his approach to realizing life-long goals. He lives by a "JFDI" mantra. Got an idea? Just Fucking Do It. I could write an entire post write an entire book, teach an entire class on how acting on your ideas and making them happen no matter what is always a worthwhile endeavor. Another time, perhaps.
This episode meanders along the loose guidelines of how people that run coworking spaces can encourage freelancers can make the most of their investment into a space. We also touch on how finding people to work with is a lot like picking a restaurant or finding what kind of music you enjoy.
