Hi, maybe that headline is a weebit dramatic, but I still feel unexpectedly better after a conversation that I had last night after my bi-weekly aerobix class at Trumbleplex….
I met this French traveler and we struck up this conversation and I told her how I used to live in this really poverty stricken neighborhood of Detroit and she just got it, she was like yeah, it’s like when a rich person moves to a poverty sticken country and the people there just descend upon them, yes, that is totally what happened to me, and it was rough until I moved out of there, to New Center. And now, I am pretty much over it, but I told her how it did something to me that I don’t think I will ever lose, some kind of compassionate quality that I got now, I mean, I was pretty compassionate before but it goes deep now.
Key to success as working as a renegade freelancer is a killer sweet & rockin workspace, IMHO…. a co-workingspace is the best! A spot to come everyday where people are working on stuff in an uber-productive setting. Don’t get me wrong working at cafes is also nice for sure, but a dedicated co-workingspace is an essential that I am happy to have as part of my freelancer kit.
I work on projects at Tech Town one of the sweetest workspots for remote & freelance people such as I that I have ever had the pleasure to work at. The vibe here is golden! Check out their site and you will see what I mean.
This is the V2 of my zine. I dwell in Detroit, this is an amazing raw place with a giant heart that is kneck deep in rapid growth and reinvention…for real…..And I mean RAPID! You can see it growing up by the week, it’s quite surreal, never seen anything like it.
