Still Alive at Five

Five years.  It really hadn’t dawned on me until I began seeing some of our members (former and current) celebrating being in business for five years as well.   I definitely share in their sentiments that time really does fly, and just the enormous amount of thankfulness for all of the support from clients, friends and family.   It is funny how five years can feel like an eternity and a drop in the bucket…

Savannah Stopover 2015 Preview

  At last, Savannah Stopover has announced their official lineup! There will be over 100 bands, including 18 local bands, in town March 5-7 for a weekend full of good tunes. For me, my favorite part of the festival is that, for the most part, I am unfamiliar with many of the bands scheduled to play. I love the experience of finding new bands to listen to and go support. Here are a few of…

Do Bikes Make You Happier, Healthier and Boost Your Performance?

The answer is yes, according to John R. Bennett of the Savannah Bicycle Campaign. Not only does it improve your commuting well-being, bicycling improves your performance and productivity, makes you more pleasant to be around  — and saves you money on parking and gas.

They are just more risk tolerant, more socially transparent, and generally have less to lose,” said Jesse Bushkar,…

A Community’s Perspective

Alex Hillman of Indy Hall embodies the coworking soul as it thrives in it’s most natural state. Community before the space is the Golden Rule. He writes insightful posts and is incredibly active in the coworking email forums. I’m quite impressed he can keep up with them all so well. That said, the coworking space is merely just that. A space. With neat architecture, furniture, and location. But without the people, it’s a fancy skeleton….

Thinc-tern Chronicles: Meet Justin Peacock

Being asked to interpret and transcribe a brand new scene and way of working within your first week may seem vague, and that’s the point- because it’s a learning curve for both parties when it comes to internships. It can be especially vague when the work scene is anything but standard:coworking. So read on and see what Justin, a Mass Communications graduate from GCSU, has to say from his first week with us!   “Hey…
