The best thing about changing the calendar from one year to the next is that first blank page. In January, 2023 is limited only by our imaginations, our grit, and the daily habits that we put in place. I know many of us started the year with goals for our lives, either professional or personal. I, for one, committed to completing a triathlon this year and so have been doubling down on my physical training.
From a business perspective, we are all watching the economy, interest rates, and inflation and wondering what impact they will have on our businesses in the coming months. Now is a great time to look at your fixed costs and examine ways that you can cut back. If you’re not yet a member of The Corner, now would be an excellent time to consider the advantages of sharing office expenses like utilities, janitorial services, printing equipment, IT, and even coffee with other businesses.
If you are a Corner member, you’re ahead of the curve. But maybe 2023 is the year you use your membership to connect with other members to share services and create the kind of community that can only come from speaking with fellow business owners. No one knows the truth and challenges of running a business quite like another business owner.
We, at The Corner, are planning to create more intentional opportunities to connect our members to one another in 2023, but don’t wait for us. Today is a great day to introduce yourself to someone in your home Corner location.
NEW E-TRANSFER PROCESS
If you pay your invoice from The Corner using email transfer, please note the email address from now on should be email@example.com. The new address will also be listed on your next invoice.
PAY WITH CRYPTO CURRENCY
We now have the ability to accept most cryptocurrencies as payment. If you’d like to do this, please email for more information.
HAVE YOU USED OUR HELP DESK?
Sign in to your Cobot account to visit the help desk for your home Corner location. This is the place to let our team know of any concerns you have with the building or operations. We’ll get notified immediately and be able to work on a solution.
Help desk is also the place to go to access guides to some of the daily procedures. How do I make a pot of coffee? How to access the Wi-Fi? The guides are there for your reference. Is there something you wish we would include here? Let us know.
Member feedback is always welcome. Don’t hesitate to speak to a team member or contact us.
