There's a lot of folklore about successful creative and business partnerships that form in coworking spaces.
But very few people talk about how HARD it can be to succeed as a team in a coworking space. It's not all fairy tale endings...
So what exactly changes when two independent people become one company? How does the way they work together change, and how does that affect the way they work in the coworking space?
Today's guests are Christine Neuleib and Amanda Thomas, co-founders of Lanternfish Press. Each of them came to coworking for different reasons, neither specifically seeking partnership let alone with the goals of launching a publishing company. But after launching a successful Kickstarter (180% funded) for their first book and since producing several more, these two have a LOT to share about how they keep their working relationships healthy and productive.
Tune in as Adam Teterus discovers their origin story rooted in Chinese lunch, and listen carefully for their most counterintuitive (but brilliant!) piece of advice for how to help interns and employees get 1000x more out of a coworking membership just by changing one small thing. 😎
True story: this tip has helped SO many of our teams and we've even used it for our own internal team as well. I bet you'll never guess what it is...
- "Both of us have always been really focused on putting people first. The people who are directly collaborating with us, the people we're sharing space with." - Christine [13:09]
- "I feel like inviting people to help us was a natural extension of the process of being here." - Amanda [18:45]
- "You need to have your own space where you can do your best work in a less supervised kind of way." - Amanda [26:37]
