Balancing Your Time as a Mompreneur

Guest Blog by Rae Steinbach, Member, Fueled Collective It’s always tough to stay on top of your schedule while managing a business. It can seem especially impossible if you are a mompreneur taking care of your children too. You may feel drained or overwhelmed with so much going on, but taking control of your personal and business time is likely closer than you think. Without top-notch time management skills, you may not be able to

It’s hard to believe that four years have already transpired since we made our Alkaloid Networks dream a reality. Naturally, we wouldn’t be celebrating an anniversary without the incredible and vibrant members that make up our community. Both locally based, as well as international thanks to the gig economy and remote working possibilities in our world today, our community continues to grow and flourish every single day. As part of our anniversary celebration, we’re going

Alkaloids BalanceForBetter International Woman's Day 2019

Guest Blog by Alkaloid Member, Lauren Keith President & Founder Information Exchange Today, I am taking a moment to celebrate International Women’s Day, and this year’s theme, #BalanceforBetter. I find myself reflecting on how coworking mirrors this kind of equality and support in communities across our world. #BalanceforBetter is about gender equality and spreading awareness on discriminations that are still tolerated today, while also highlighting women’s achievements. From my perspective, coworking is a microcosm emphasizing

The garage where HP was started in Palo Alto, CA.

Guest Blog by Alkaloid Member, Sunil Vatave President Canopy Workforce Solutions In 1938, David Packard and William Hewlett started Hewlett Packard in a garage in Palo Alto, California. They did this at the recommendation of Stanford’s Dean of Engineering, Fred Terman, who encouraged alumni to set up shop in what is now Silicon Valley. Professor Terman’s goal was to “create a community of technical scholars”. Terman realized the power of community when it came to

Working Alone in the Kitchen

We Need Human Interaction Most everyone has heard of or participated in the gig economy: an entire marketplace based on businesses pairing up with independent contractors that specialize in niche tasks. Although its arrival has made it easier than ever before for entrepreneurs to do what they love, it has also introduced a new wave of loneliness that is entirely unprecedented. Solopreneurs, freelancers, and start-ups certainly enjoy their fair share of benefits: individuals can now do

Alkaloid Networks Coworking on the Atlanta Beltline

The New Year has officially arrived, which means you’re probably planning for a productive, fruitful, and lucrative year ahead of you and your personal venture. For most startups, entrepreneurs, and fledgling businesses, the dream of owning a personal business space is out of the question. Consider the alternative of coworking instead of  staying at home and working on the couch. That just doesn’t get the motivational juices flowing. And the cat isn’t a great coworker.

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
