Member Appreciation Night August 2018

The hustle is hard and the struggle is real. Early mornings, late nights, weekends and holidays. Founder’s life is not easy and often your hard work is overlooked and under-appreciated. Well, here at Toolbox LA our intention is to make sure our members know how much we appreciate them working hard to make a positive impact in the world. We see you. Even if you don’t think anybody else sees you, we see you.

And the best part about being a member of our coworking space is that you don’t feel you have to “put on a work persona to fit in.” You can work a 14 hour day on Monday and then stay home with the kids on Tuesday, it’s totally up to you. Whatever your schedule is, you’re a part of the community and we appreciate all that you do.

With so much time spent at the coworking space, we figured why not venture out into the neighborhood, support a local business, and visit Hand Brewed Beer, a local brewery based here in Chatsworth.

We gathered the troops and make the 5-minute trek over to the local brewery to indulge in a beer tasting and some delicious pizza, because, as you know, pizza and beer go hand in hand like peanut butter and jelly. Peas and carrots. Salt and pepper. You get the drift.

The crowd favorites were both the Rocky Peak IPA (named after our local mountain range) and the Chatsworth Chai Stout. Big thanks to Brian Hand for hosting us!

It was a short hour and half of socializing amongst our shared desk folks, private office folks, makerspace folks, and biotech lab folks and before we knew it the sun was setting and it was time to get home to our families or back to our grindstone. The eclectic mix of backgrounds made for interesting conversation topics such as how one got into the startup world to how cryptocurrency might eradicate homelessness.

We are truly grateful for the wonderful people who make up this community. Studies have shown that having a community to work in helps create structures and discipline that helps motivates coworkers.

 

We are looking forward to the next outing which will definitely be at another local business.

Date, time and location TBA!
