It's with a heavy heart and a deep breath that I rejoin my blog after more than 18 months. As you may have guessed, things got a bit crazy when L. (and all of my possessions) moved to San Francisco. We were forced to shut Loosecubes down in November after building an amazing team and wonderful community. I've learned quite a bit over the last while to share with you. It's been almost 2 months, a hurricane, a wedding, and a restorative trip to Africa since the shut down. I'm finally ready to be back.
So many people made this journey possible and I’d like to say thanks to a few. I wouldn’t be worth a dime without Anna Thomas’ relentless positive energy, magical foresight, and organizational skills. To Pete, Yanda, Sep, Luke, James, and Lisa, thank you for encouraging me and for teaching me the ins and outs of this crazy industry. To Brian, Theresia and all of our wonderful angels who took a chance on me in the beginning when very few people even knew what coworking was – thank you. It’s been an exciting, exhausting, hilarious, wild ride.
Most of all, thank you to Team Loosecubes who worked day in and day out to bring our community a product they could be proud of and a service they could rely on. You made me laugh every day – from nerf gun target practice, to fireside chats at SXSW, lunches at Foragers and pop up Loosecubes around the city, talking to TV crews (or programming for them), maintaining a positive attitude and bringing your all every day to work. You guys are the real deal and I’ve never before worked with such a talented yet humble group of people. I will be forever indebted to you for all that you have taught me.
And last but not least, to L., my partner behind the scenes, my advisor, my confidante, and the love of my life. Thank you for keeping me sane and for always reminding me to stay close to my center. Here’s to the next chapter. Tomorrow is a new day – let’s make it count.
