Finding inspiration seems to be a key theme for many of us these days. Adjusting to new normals, social distancing, uncertainty, cabin fever...we get it. To avoid filling your inboxes/screens with yet another “we’re all in this together + stock images” message (click here if you haven’t seen the montage), we thought it might be most helpful to share what has been inspiring us...YOU!
In this virtual world, members of Team KettleSpace have chatted on the phone, meditated, sipped adult beverages, broken a sweat, or shared a laugh with more than 1,000 Members of the greater KettleSpace community. You’re coping, offering to help others in the community, getting creative, trying new things, finding silver linings, and marching forward. Your resilience is remarkable. Here are some #weeklywins to provide a flavor.
🙇 Thanks to Member @Emilie Leyes for sharing her story in our latest Member Spotlight. Emilie offered some good WFH advice and talked about guiding clients who want to make lifestyle changes. #appreciation #workfromhome
🌟 Congratulations to Member @Amy Klein on her triumphant book launch of The Trying Game: Get Through Fertility Treatment and Get Pregnant Without Losing Your Mind. Read all about it in her Member Profile. #booklaunch #memberstory #communitywins
📰 Quote of the week: "I feel absolutely obligated to give Raphi Salem a huge testimonial this morning! We met last week through a KettleSpace event and we just had an initial introductory conversation and he gave me practically more VALUE than I could handle." posted by Evan Rabin
Let’s look forward to something together...
In the spirit of co-authoring our shared culture, two things are coming in loud and clear from our Members…
1. So many of you want to pay it forward to others in the KettleSpace community.
2. There’s a strong shared desire to trade value between Members (paying gigs, expertise, contacts, etc).
In response, we are adjusting two key features of our Virtual Membership prototype:
- Welcome...The Five Minute Favor -- volunteer to help a fellow KettleSpace Member by offering 5 mins of your time to speak about an area in which you are an expert. Science shows we humans are at our best when we give. You’re now officially invited to be your best self while lifting up your virtual coworking neighbor!
- We are updating the format of our Talent & Knowledge Exchange so that you can level up your game by tapping into a wide range of resources within the KettleSpace Community.
