New Faces in the Coworking Space
Our coworking space has never been about filling desks. It's about surrounding entrepreneurs with the peers and environment they need to thrive, and growing our community of ThinkerDoers. Each newsletter going forward, we'll introduce you to a recent addition to our community. When you see them, please help us welcome them into the fold. First up...
Mike Green: A performance coach for 20+ years, Mike spends his days in service to his clients' goals and higher performance. He found his calling as an Outwards Bounds instructor and still helps individuals escape comfort zones and recalibrate all over the world. His next adventure is a month-long trip to Alaska, which he'll spend rafting, fly-fishing, backpacking, and more. We're excited to catch up with him after! Connect with Mike here.
We want to give first dibs on the remaining coworking desks to members of the Black Lab Sports community. Find more details here and let us know if you're interested!
