I love the energy and the ability to connect with so many diverse people through WORKUP. I always look forward to running into coworkers and getting fresh perspectives. We may all work in different spaces but there is still a great deal of overlap in our problems and how we approach our solutions.
I love the space - I can work at a desk inside, a table outside on a nice day, sitting on a couch, or in a conference room. I am definitely more productive here than when I was doing my work from home. I also like having a professional space where I can meet with clients.
