Kick Start Your Business | In-Person Workshop at Cowork Evergreen

**POSTPONED DUE TO FAMILY EMERGENCY. STAY TUNED FOR RESCHEDULE DATE.** Kick Start Your Biz: Gain Clarity, Inspiration, Forward-moving Action & Success in 8 Steps In-Person Workshop  **Friday, November 6th**POSTPONED DUE TO FAMILY EMERGENCY. STAY TUNED FOR RESCHEDULE DATE. 9am – 1pm  Create a step-by-step plan to follow on your path to success. Do you find yourself in a place where you need to re-ignite your love with your business? Are you moving through your days, checking off items on an uninspired to-do list? Are you wanting to reconnect, authentically with your clients? Do you feel like you’re meant for something bigger, something greater? Do you feel like you don’t know what your next step should be to improve your life and your business?   I’m Katy Moses, photographer, and founding member of Cowork Evergreen, and I’ve been on this path many times. I love to generate new ideas, create new products and I’ve too often found myself spinning without direction. Spinning like that ship without a rudder to keep it on it’s correct path. Heck, I didn’t even have a path I was following! I would just go day-by-day, working with a mix of inspired action and putting-out-fires. I didn’t know the power of goal-setting and I didn’t know how to map out my journey. Now I do and it makes ALL the difference. All those ideas can be a reality if you want them to be. You can be a success. You can live a life that you design – break out of the standard moulds and decide what you want your days to look like. All it takes is your ideas (that...

Embracing Entrepreneurship in the Mountains | The Modern Pioneer

Embracing Entrepreneurship in the Mountains Guest Post by Cowork Evergreen member, Laura Brandenburg   Even though I’ve lived near Evergreen for 4 years and been in business for 6, I’ve just recently entered the Evergreen business scene. There was a time in my life when I was so tired of the corporate world that I decided to hunker down. Not leaving my work-from-home office was a freedom I treasured dearly. Then one daughter was born. And another. Hunkering down became a necessity rather than a choice as I stole hours and minutes during naps and content playtimes to work on or in my business. Outside of attending a local professional group a few times each year and traveling to speak on great occasion, I stayed close to home when it came to working. But recently, that’s started to change for the better. Finally giving some attention to my calling to help moms find profitable work, I decided to host an in-person Digital Product Workshop. I discovered this wonderful place called Cowork Evergreen. It was the perfect venue for the intimate gathering of women who attended. (If you are interested, the next workshop is on September 26, and you can find out more here.) I’ve started leaving my home office one day per week to work at Cowork Evergreen too. I get to talk to people. In person. For those of you I’ve met already, I know I haven’t been the most outgoing or talkative, but I’m looking forward to catching up with you when I’m not caught up in thought about whatever it is I might be working on...

Getting Back to Basics | Motivation for Entrepreneurs

  Getting Back to Basics | 2 simple things you can do to turn around your business. I received some great advice today. Simple, but exactly what I needed to hear. In our businesses, there are only two things we need to do everyday. TWO things, that’s it. Music to my ears, for sure, hopefully for you as well. You ready to hear what those magical two things are? Here ya go: 1. Provide value to your community every day. 2. Present your community with an opportunity to buy, every day.    Let those sink in a bit and think about what that means for you and your business. What do you do to provide value every day?  How do you encourage your community to become not just a member of your tribe, but also a customer (without making them annoyed)? Let’s chat more about what those two items really entail. It might be different for your business and you might pick up some new ideas. Read on with an open mind and be open to new possibilities. And be sure to share any other methods that work for you. Digging Deeper Into the 2 Simple Things Concept: 1. Provide value to your community every day. This means putting out information, content that helps you connect with your tribe. Be human, be vulnerable, tell them about your thought process, behind-the-scenes, before-and-after scenarios of your clients, case studies, tell them stories, engage them and inspire them. Educate them. Get them interested and let them love you. AND let them not love you. The more you put out your message in an authentic way,...

Welcome to June! Cowork Evergreen turns 9 months old this week. We’ve been having a lot of fun, meeting new friends, learning so much and continuing to grow and improve. Consider joining us this Summer! It can be hard to keep focus during the summer months, but keep in mind we’re just about halfway through the year.  This is a great time to check-in with your 2015 goals and see how you’re doing. Are you on-track? Are there some small shifts you can make to ramp up some business for the rest of the year? Are there any ways you can branch out your biz in ways you hadn’t previously considered? We pride ourselves on providing a supportive environment for entrepreneurs (this includes writers, web developers, photographers, marketing folk, and many more). We know it can be a challenge to create a space that has limited distractions and that also supports creative thought and business growth.  We’re a positive community and we want to see others in our community finding success.
