We’ve all been there — the dreaded Monday after a long weekend. You’re relaxed, refreshed, and in this case, full of turkey and mashed potatoes.

(We’re with you on both of those.)…

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…

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….

We’ve got not one, but two, awesome interns this summer here at Thinc!
