It's time for harvest, savings, and great events!

Back to school means back to work!

 

 

It is only the farmer who faithfully plants seeds in the Spring, who reaps a harvest in the Autumn.
- B.C. Forbes
 
Did you plant your seeds in the Spring? And are you ready to harvest from your hard work this Autumn? If not, now that the summer is coming to a close and the kids are back in school and the patios will be closing up, it's time to hunker down and get to it.

We love the fall for a number of reasons. Entrepreneurs and freelancers are generally more excited about work, about the possibilities that come with the crisp air and sense of new beginnings. Maybe it's left over from that feeling of going back to school after summer break. Whatever it is, work with it. Use it to your advantage and charge ahead.

In this issue you'll find:


Let's get to it...



Fall promotion

We see a bit of an influx of members at this time of year, and adding new folks to the mix helps to keep the community diverse. We're offering all new memberships a discount: sign up in Sep at a regular rate and enjoy 50% off the rest of 2012. Part time, Full time, or Fulltime Permanent all qualify!

Here's some math for you to show you how awesome this is:Full time permanent - access to the space 24/7, you can leave things on your desk, also get a 2drawer lockable filing cabinet
  • Sep - $375.00
  • Oct - $187.50
  • Nov - $187.50
  • Dec - $187.50
That's a savings of $562.50!  

A regular Full time memberhsip would save $487.50 and Part time memberships would save $300. That's money in your pocket for the end of the year.


This is valid for folks that have never had a membership with us. Taxes are extra, as is a last month's membership fee at the regular rate. Come see what the Camaraderie membership can be like for you.



New art by Daniele Rossi

Distraction - Daniele RossiThe artist community is welcome in our space as well, and we like to rotate through local artists to provide new and eye-catching art on our walls. The newest installation is about digital culture and is split between the workspace and the boardroom, created and curated by Daniele Rossi.

Rather than the artist tags with info about each piece, Daniele opted for QR codes to scan to see far more info that what would fit onto a small printed tag. Distraction, featured here as an example, links to a Pinterest page about the piece, where he writes: "I love social media and took to it like a fish to water. Along with its many nice benefits, there are a number of not-so-nice side affects. Now whenever I work on my art, I am constantly distracted."  This innovative approach is a great blend of physical art with the digital world, all while providing intense colour on our artist-ready walls.

Anyone can pop in to see the art on our walls in the main space (and if the boardroom isn't occupied with a meeting at the time) during regular business hours.



Meeting space availability

 
Looking for a space to hold your team meetings, board meeting, sales pitches, or conference calls? Or do you have a podcast you want to develop in a broadcast ready room? While our boardroom is primarily used by members, we do rent it out by the hour on weekdays ($15/hr) or for blocks of time evenings and weekends at incredibly reasonable rates. Please let us know what you need and we can quote you on meeting space.
