By Liz Elam On November 12, 2019 In Community Cultivators Blog Series

Here at GCUC we are immensely fortunate to cross paths and work with so many amazing people. Through our work, we’ve cultivated a global community of people we think you should know about.

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.

Clark ReinhartThis week we we had the pleasure of interviewing Clark Reinhart. Clark is the community director at Loading Dock Raleigh. Take a look at what he had to say.

What in your life are you most proud of cultivating or creating? Why?

I’m most proud of my family, especially how my wife, Laura, and I have worked hard to create an equitable marriage. We want our children to see that both parents are equals and contribute to all aspects of family life.

Where do you personally feel the most sense of community?

I feel it when I am working alongside of other people to solve a critical problem in our community.

What podcast would you recommend to others and why?

99% Invisible. It reminds me to look for the little things in life and ask questions about design/details that shape our world.

What is one piece of advice you give everyone that works with and/or for you?

Lead from passion.

If you had $500 to spend- what would you buy?

I’d buy a night away at a local B&B with my wife, Laura, and maybe even splurge on a massage.

What advice would you give to someone thinking of becoming an entrepreneur?

Talk to a lot of smart and passionate people. Ask them detailed questions and listen well. Then, dare greatly and work your tail off.

What is the best habit you ever started? What habit do you want to start but haven’t yet?

Honestly, I need to do a better job of creating habits in my life. But, I think connecting with college students on a weekly basis. They inspire me and keep me young at heart. A habit I need to get back to is working out.

If you had to put a quote on your gravestone what would it be?

“Leadership & learning are indispensable to each other.” – JFK
