Let's talk about CoCrafting Studio. A virtual coworking space for crafters! Join us for accountability and even some fun while making!
It is proven that scheduling your tasks, not just making a to-do list, is the way to make sure the they are accomplished. But...this is a hobby right? Well, that up to you do decide. If this "hobby" is indeed a business, then it's time to start treating it like one.
Coworking spaces are very successful for a reason, and that reason is the same reason that you went to study hall when you were in school. Solopreneurs especially love coworking spaces since they are a big step up from the local coffee shop. Being around people that are focused on work also helps you focus.
It’s work time. It's work energy happening. Cities have coworking spaces where people could “go to the office” because working from home isn’t really working out for them and it would be too expensive to rent a full studio for their one-person operation.
But...how many crafting solopreneurs do you think that you'll find at the local coffee shop or the big city coworking space? Not many. Crafters don't just grab a computer and sit at the local park on a sunny day. We have taken over our family's dining room, garage, spare bedrooms or any other place we could use.
During this new age of remote work, it makes sense to meet virtually. Scheduled things get done. It's time to schedule your crafting time.
But let’s be honest, just because it’s scheduled doesn’t mean that you're going to do it. Life happens right?
That is, unless someone is waiting for you.
I rarely miss scheduled meetings that are on my calendar especially if they are virtual meetings. Those are easy and I don't want to disappoint whoever is expecting me!
Scheduled work time along with someone to work along side with is a great productivity formula.
Well, during this new age of remote work, it makes sense to meet virtually. Scheduled things get done. It's time to schedule your crafting time.
I'm Liliana, owner of Event Craft Studio Seasonal Wreaths and Holiday Decor. Like many, I have taken my creative outlet and made it my business. However, working for myself turned out to be much harder than I anticipated because as a solopreneur, I only had myself to respond to.
It was a hard truth to face but I finally had to admit it...
~I miss the corporate schedule~
(It gave me structure. It gave me accountability.)
~I miss meetings~
(They gave me deadlines. I saw people!)
I found myself scheduling Zoom meetings and joining webinars just to help me have a sense of scheduled time and accomplishment. (Luckily they were always productive.)
My background as a corporate trainer already encouraged me start monthly live Zoom trainings but what about everyday work?
Then it hit me, I can't be the only crafter going through this!
And so it begins, CoCrafting Studio, a virtual accountability workspace for crafters.
You'll have dedicated time for creating.
You can use any device that has internet to join.
This is just the beginning!
I can't wait to see how much our productivity increases!
What this is:
What this isn't:

If some of these questions made you cringe, then it may be time to start scheduling your times. Even better, why not join us and have some accountability with your scheduled time?
Hope to see you at the next scheduled CoCrafting Session!
