There’s a lot of reasons not to give up a slice of your passion or business to somebody else, but Tony hits a home run as to the real reason why in his reflection “Alone at NWC“.
I wonder what it would be like to start a coworking space without having to do any of the grunt work. If you had the money right away to hire people to do all of the little things, I wonder whether you’d ever be able to fully appreciate the intricacies of every detail that make a place like this so special?
Replace “coworking space” with “business”, and the message becomes universal.
The whole thing is worth a read. I highly recommend it.
Whatever you do, don't build your coworking community alone.
