NLA Entrepreneurship

Makers Meetup
Last week, newly formed organization, NWLA Makerspace had their first meetup for interested Makers.  A Makers meetup is design to connect creative amateurs and professional hobbyists to network and build relationships to help one another learn and grow their capacity to complete projects.  Guests at the meetup are encouraged to bring examples of their work or hobby and share information about their particular craft or field of interest.  Action items that we like to see come from the meetings are: exchanging contacts, planning interest groups to brainstorm projects, brainstorming on the spot and committing to start a project.  If you are a Maker, get connected with NWLA Makerspace today!

Just in time for Valentines Day!!!
Baking has always been something that I have loved and wanted to pursue a career in. Creating delicious and beautiful cakes and other treats is something that I take a lot of pride in. So I took a leap, and upon starting my small baking business from home I was introduced to CoHab and everything that they offer for entrepreneurs. 

Because CoHab has been such a huge help to me, I am offering a CoHab exclusive discount of 20% off of all Valentine's orders to those who mention this Newsletter. Orders must be placed by Sunday, February 12 to receive in time for Valentine's Day.  Place your orders here!
