"Everything was really, really, really good." There's something in the air at CUAsia, and it's making coworking founders and operators extremely good at their work. In this episode, Alex and Adam recap their recent trip to Chiang Mai, Thailand for CUAsia 2017. Find out what impressed them most during their trip overseas and why they think even though Asia is young in terms of coworking, the entire region deserves our undivided attention as leaders of the industry.
At Indy Hall, we don't offer lockers, we leave our door wide open, and we tend to leave our computers on our desks while we're away for lunch. And yet, we all feel safe and sound. How is that possible? In this episode, Adam and Alex visit a pivotal past event in which a member stole from the community and how we introduced a community-focused solution for keeping our members safe.
If you have ever heard or spoken the words "coworking won't work in this town", this episode is for you. Alex is joined by Sean Fedorko, founder of Radius Cowork, and the two community leaders debunk the popular myth that coworking can't succeed in a small town. Alex learns what gave Sean the confidence to start his coworking community in a place where everyone told him it wasn't possible.
In this episode, Sam and Alex talk tools - specifically, one tool we use at Indy Hall to create a sense community continuity, opportunities for connection even when you're not physically here. Find out which communication software we use to create a first-class gathering space for our entire community.
Stop making excuses. Go do stuff together.

It's been almost three years and more than 50 episodes, and we're finally introducing Indy Hall's co-founder, Geoff DiMasi, to the show. Alex and Geoff's conversation couldn't be more timely for the New Year as they discuss setting achievable goals and the unbeatable fulfillment of actually making stuff. [Heads up: this episode is PACKED with valuable lessons and exercises for how to get people to do things together, and this is one of my favorite episodes we've done for how personal and actionable it is. Enjoy!]
