I was reading an article the other day titled Seven Things Successful People Do.
As much as I was hoping those seven things included eating whatever you liked, not exercising regularly and having Mountain Dew for breakfast, sadly, it did not.
However, one of the seven was Finding People To-Do Things That You Cannot.
And this is how I started on the road to success using that simple step.
A couple months ago, I had a vision of what I wanted my new logo to look like, but I was struggling with putting that vision on paper.
That is when I found the people to-do things that I couldn’t.
Flock is a business in downtown Minneapolis where Spencer rents creative space. “Renting creative space” initially sounded weird to me.
Can’t you be creative anywhere? Answer: Yes, but.
(For those of you wondering, Spencer is the photographer behind the amazing photos on this blog, my Social Media Director and last but not least, my nephew. He is brilliant, that is all you need to remember. )
Let me show you around Flock and you will see why Spencer works from here.
As you enter.
These long tables lining the room offer spaces which can be rented.
If you prefer a smaller setting, these cozy bistro tables are available in the adjacent room.
Six months out of a Minnesota year a sunny patio is available to grab a bite to eat and re-energize.
Right in side that patio is my favorite room. Some day when my kitchen grows up, it will look like this.
Other creative spaces:
In addition to these beautifully decorated spaces, Flock offers many other perks. One of them is this:
Big Brain is a designated brainstorming hour filled with laughter, brilliant minds and plenty of wine. Designed to bring together fellow creatives to bounce around ideas.
Spencer set up a late Wednesday afternoon “Big Brain” for us to join fellow “creatives” and brainstorm about my new logo.
Let me tell you, I have never, ever had a meeting that was so productive, energetic and fun. Okay, maybe the flowing wine contributed to the success of the meeting, but if that’s what it takes? Take note Corporate America!
I’ll share the brainstorm session results and what came next soon.
Thanks for stopping by,
