IS COWORKING FOR YOU?

Nowadays, work is no longer as straightforward as the typical 9-to-5 at an office. Owing to the global connectivity of the internet, entrepreneurs, independent freelancers, digital nomads, and remote workers can now operate self-autonomously. More and more, location independence is becoming the norm for these millennial career persons. There are currently over 160,000 members worldwide spanning over 3,000 different co-working spaces around the world. Consequently, the international popularity of these shared working spaces—like WeWork in New York, Warner Yard in London, Impact Hub in Manila and Hubud in Bali—is booming. Whether it’s at a surf camp in Indonesia, a traveling bus (Startup Bus), or a catamaran out at sea (Coboat), our modern age has allowed us to tailor almost every aspect of our lives to our very liking.

In Manila, places such as Impact Hub are leading the local vanguard, providing members a large, bright space surrounded by cheerful murals and populated with individuals that are not just professionally driven, but aspire for purposeful social change.

But how can you tell if co-working is really for you? The best and easiest option is to try it out! Impact Hub extends a free co-working day pass to all social entrepreneurs, creative freelancers, techpreneurs and the whole start-up community in their Makati Office, which is one of 77 globally!
To help with the decision process further, we’ve compiled a list of three things to consider below.

1 – BUDGET
Co-working spaces usually come with leases or membership fees. Especially for small businesses and early stage enterprises that are bootstrapping their operations, financial limitations are a significant reality. Even for telecommuters, it defeats the purpose if you are spending more for a space than your company or business is earning. When calculating costs, remember to factor in things such as living expenses, commute, internet and associated leisure and utility bills. That said, co-working spaces are often more affordable alternatives to office spaces, coffee shops, or even your own apartment. Plus, the multiple potential benefits are well worth the investment.

2 – PRODUCTIVITY
The many benefits of co-working have been well-documented. A hotbed for entrepreneurial ventures, data suggests that start-ups working out of co-working spaces are four times more successful. Several companies have made their workforce largely remote—including Github, Mozilla, Buzzfeed, Etsy, and WordPress—increasing employee satisfaction and thus improving overall productivity. Compared to working from home, co-working offers less pesky distractions and, in fact, more helpful and supportive opportunities. At the end of the day, the right co-working space should inspire you to get the job done.

3 – NETWORKING
Across the board, experts agree that the main advantage of co-working spaces is the access one gains to a wide network of peers and like-minded professionals. The chances of you hurdling that obstacle, or unlocking that next breakthrough idea drastically increases with the presence of collaborators around you. Looking for a co-founder, teammate, or just some honest feedback? What better way than to ask a co-worker? With the wide variety of co-working spaces available, so too will you have a diverse pool of talents to connect with and learn from.

So what are you waiting for? Grab your laptop and work today from a coworking space, such as Impact Hub and try it out for free. They are located at 5th Floor Green Sun, 2285 Chino Roces Avenue Extension, Makati City, Manila, Philippines. They are an incubator, coworking and events space for a membership community of entrepreneurs, activists, creatives, and professionals taking action to drive positive social and environmental change. With 11,000+ members in 77+ Impact Hubs across the world, the Impact Hub Network has become the center of gravity for people innovating a new kind of economy.

 

Climbing the Ladder in Stilettos

I have always raved about the book “Climbing the Ladder in Stilettos” authored by Lynette Lewis. Although I have read the book several years ago, all parts of it still ring true to this working mom. Also, the years have somehow given me a different perspective on each page of the book. Pretty much how you would be amazed at getting new personal message from God as you pick up and read the same passages from your Bible.

Lynette has accurately given us a picture of what moms are about, we wear different kinds of shoes for different reasons. We wear flats or even sneakers for errands, change to another pair when we get to work (one that can be worn without the public commute or the MRT crowd), then change back to something more comfy when we travel home, then change into slippers or soft soles to get us ready for the tasks at home.

It was also the book that gave me my first challenge of finding real meaning for work and from work. It has calibrated me to see that it is not always about money or bigger paycheck. It is one that allows you to juggle your other roles while delivering the best performance you can give while serving God through serving your bosses at work.

Lynette has also helped me create my purpose statement for life and work. And if you have not drafted one yet, start by answering the questions below.

1. When people explain why they want me involved or why they referred someone to me, what do they say?

2. Which of my abilities and gifts are most often noted and affirmed by my colleagues?

3. What activities bring me the most joy and satisfaction?

4. What could I be passionate about doing for the next ten years?

5. If I could have any role/position at my current organization or elsewhere, what would I do?

6. Given my life experiences, my education, and my gifts, what unique attributes set me apart from others?

Indeed, this has gotten started what I thank God for Mondays at work. It is essentially thanking God not just for workdays but also for the things that you can positively affect or change at work.

Sky Cable Playback Rewind – Weekend Family Fun

It was SKY family weekend fun last 25th of July as Sky Cable celebrated its 25th anniversary with a family offering at Rockwell Tent. Both kids and the young at heart enjoyed a day full of pinoy games and kids’ favorite activities. Makingworkingmomswork was there to witness all of the games and it was indeed a playback afternoon as Sky Cable brought us back to an authentic Pinoy afternoon game time.

All Pinoy games such as life-size dama, jackstones, pick up sticks, piko and tumbang preso booths were open for both kids and parents to play. The kids also had their mouths open as the Yoyo master showed off his yoyo tricks. All moms present, I’m sure was reminded about how kids would spend afternoons sweating and playing under the sun instead of today’s usual tablet/computer games fun.

All participants went home with full tummies and bags care of Sky Cable and sponsors. As if the game and food booths were not enough, attendees went home with the best take-away of classic Pinoy game memories in mind.
