I have worked from home for 8 years, though I have never really wanted to. I did it because it was convenient. But it's never been healthy. There isn't much separation between work and family. The office and laptop are always right there. And when I am trying to focus, there are kids and chores and distractions all around.
Bryan Reynolds and I set out to fix this. There had to be a solution. So we made our own. After 6 years of dreaming, 3 years of planning, we found the right space and are making it happen. And the doors open Tuesday!
Citizens Creative House is a place for small business owners, creatives, pastors, artists, tech people; anyone that has a backpack and laptop as their office. It's a super cozy log cabin feel, with space to spread out projects, and a place to meet some like-minded people.
We have spent a great deal of time over the last 7 days not only getting the space ready, but also working on our businesses in there. The quiet and inspiring environment has enabled me to get a massive crap-load of work done, that would take me weeks at home. I'm mad we didn't do this earlier, but thankful I can now have some focus time for work, and I can leave it behind when I head home to see my babies.
