The Coworking Community

Let’s work together: separately, comfortably, virtually.

Community, capacity, connectivity

Ever feel like you’re missing the accountability offered by a shared workspace?

Maybe you’d like a friendly face at the other end of the screen…even if there’s no talking.

Just because you’re a freelancer/solopreneur doesn’t mean you have to do it alone.

Introducing

The Coworking Community

Often, as we’re working from home and left to our own devices, it can be super easy to slip into avoidance mode (I know because I do it!!) and not do or achieve the things we want to.

The Coworking Community (CoCo) is about bringing people together in a gentle, virtual space.

Having someone at the other end of your screen is a great way to stay accountable and do the work. I know this because when I had a membership a few years back, the most-loved part of the Organised Biz Village was the coworking sessions.

I’ve really missed those sessions, connecting with community and surrounding ourselves with friendly faces.
So, it’s time to bring it back.

Who is the Coworking Community for?

The Coworking Community (CoCo) was created for anyone looking for a relaxed, gentle, virtual work space.

As a neurodivergent person, I know how much I benefit from coworking sessions. Knowing there’s someone on the other end of the screen, working away, doing their thing while I do mine, helps to keep me focused, and that I’m not alone.

There aren’t any hard and fast rules—other than being a decent human—to be a CoCo Nut. However you identify, you’re welcome here.

For what it’s worth, this offer page was made during the beta coworking sessions before launching this community for real. I’d tried several times beforehand to create the offer page but kept hitting stumbling blocks—old mate imposter syndrome was in town, plus a myriad of tech issues kept cropping up. That’s not to say I wasn’t experiencing them during the sessions, but it was easier to keep going, knowing there was support there if I needed it.

What’s a
CoCo Nut?

During the sessions I held whilst building this offer page, I asked the participants what I could call the directory part of the membership.

One suggested Coworking Partners List. I really liked that.
And then that got my creative ideas flowing.

I suggested Coworking Community Directory. The same participant said it could be CoCo for short. I loved it. The second participant said how much she loved the alliteration. Me too.

So, that was it. The directory would be called the Coworking Community Directory.

Until the following day’s session.
Originally Capacity Coworking Community, I decided to change the whole membership name to Coworking Community (CoCo).

And then I realised members could be CoCo Nuts.

Because, according to the Cambridge Dictionary:

nut noun (PERSON)

informal

someone who is extremely enthusiastic about a particular activity or thing

No doubt about it, I’m extremely enthusiastic about coworking and community. And alliteration. And word plays. And that is all I need to say as your Head CoCo Nut.

Hi, I'm Hollie

I’m a Naarm/Melbourne based capacity advocate and time management specialist, and as of February 2024 I’m also a communication design student.

Not only all that, I’m your Head CoCo Nut.

I love ice cream, British political and crime dramas, European TV and films, my family, water, and the colour blue. I also really like plants but I am terrible at keeping them alive.

My promise to you is to create and provide a gentle environment that supports and advocates for sustainable capacity for conscious business folk.

Wanna be a CoCo Nut with me?
