Community of Cultivators is a blog series we created to introduce you to coworking game changers and connectors. Each month, we’ll release new interviews that we hope inform and inspire you.
This week we had the opportunity to interview Felicity Maxwell of fibercove. We met Felicity in our city (shout out ATX) and have been popping in and out of her space every since. Check out what she had to say.
Name: Felicity Maxwell
Title: Coworking connector * Community builder * Problem Solver * Founder of fibercove
My relationships. Of course, with my husband, my kids, and family. But also with members of my coworking space, my neighborhood, and the community of Austin. The backbone of my coworking space is relationships – between members, coworkers, and myself and our broader community. The connections between all of these people is what makes coworking so exciting. And I get to facilitate those interactions each day? It is so awesome!
Keep It! It’s from the folks who do Pod Save America, but its has a pop culture focus that is super fresh. They touch on all of the hot button topics in Hollywood but still let you know the latest Drake drama. It’s great!
A plane ticket. Maybe to Croatia but probably to New York City. I miss living there, so when I do have extra cash, it’s at the top of the destination list.
Don’t do it alone! My husband is a serial entrepreneur so I’ve always had a support system. But generally having a business partner or even accountability buddy makes the highs and lows of the journey much easier. I actually think becoming an entrepreneur is easy, but succeeding and staying an entrepreneur takes a great team.
Turning off social media. I try to do a detox every couple of weeks by either blocking SM on my phone or simply changing my login. I’m a political junkie so its really easy to spend hours on Twitter rehashing the latest polling data or presidential tweet. When I limit my exposure I’m so much more productive and it helps to clear my mind. I can’t imagine not using these sites, but its also good to be able to step away from the non-stop information flow.
Thats all for this week. Come back next week for another edition.
