Atlanta Parent

Reprinted with permission from Atlanta Parent Magazine When Adrian C.M. Van Deusen’s family grew, his home no longer had room for an office. The owner of ITALLIS Communication and the operations director at BrainDx decided to try coworking at Alkaloid Networks. “The coworking environment puts me in that office space mentally and physically. It also allows me to create a clearer distinction between time to produce and family time,” he says. Atlanta has coworking spaces

Open Floor Plan

There has been discussion surrounding a mind-opening and controversial article recently published by Inc., which states that the “open floor plan” in offices today is failing miserably. Coworkers are subject to sensory overload, and without having their own personal space or home “base”. Without the ability to have private conversations, they are actually retreating to instant messaging apps and engaging in even less human-to-human contact. The author concludes by stating that this is one the

Atlanta Coworking Alliance

Why create an Atlanta Coworking Alliance? It’s no secret that our world is hurling towards a fully decentralized, independent freelancing market. According to JLL Consulting, 50% of people will participate in some kind of the gig economy income-generating role by 2020. More people than ever before have questions, needs, and requirements that have to be met if our world is going to adapt to this new kind of workforce with ease. That’s one of the

Coworking Improves Summer Productivity

Given that it is the Summer Solstice, summer is officially in full swing, which means you’re probably tempted to walk the Beltline, eat lunch outside at Ladybird, and do just about everything you can to avoid sitting inside. I know I’ve tried to convince myself many times that I’ll work while sitting next to the pool. It’s hard to remain your productivity when the sun is shining and positivity is radiating through the air, especially

Happier Coworking at Alkaloid Networks

Since we are in Mental Health Awareness Month, we continue our focus on how coworking can help alleviate loneliness. The typical coworking space come with plenty perks and amenities. Recent findings have found that many members are joining spaces first and foremost for the socialization aspect. This makes sense given the increasing rise of gig economy-related loneliness. In one study released by the Harvard Business Review, coworking members provided the following statistics: 87% reported that

This wasn't how I planned to celebrate the 5th anniversary of Alkaloid Networks but the coronavirus had other plans.
One of my members brought me a bottle of cava when she stopped by to pick up mail. It was so sweet (and yes, I cried just a little at her thoughtfulness). I plan on drinking this tonight at our #virtual #celebration. I'm looking forward to seeing all your smiling faces.

In case your wondering why I’m here, all alone I might add, I’m allowed to perform minimum basic operations. I checked to make sure. That means I’m receiving mail and packages. I’m either here or home.
I’m also working on the new #FREE #virtual #membership. ❤️ to you all!

Feeling sadness and gratitude as I sit in the empty space today.
I started Alkaloid Networks with a dream of giving people a place to connect and help each other. This community exists to combat loneliness and a lack of productivity.
This has not changed and doesn't now.
We can still achieve those goals.
Humanity can achieve these goals. Together.
Perhaps not in person for a bit but by using the technology we are fortunate to have access to use now.
I miss the members and I'm loving seeing your smiling faces on #Zoom. I'm committed to each of you, our community and being here on the back side of this crisis. #wegotthis
