Name: Jamie Miller
Company and title: CEO of Union Cowork
My son – he has re-taught me the importance of paying attention to the right things. He holds me accountable to being a better, more thoughtful human. (He calls me out when I’m an asshole). I’m proud that I have the capacity to love him, learn from him and apply the lessons I’ve lived through to help him be more open and confident to the world.
The coffee shop, the elementary school, the coworking spaces in my neighborhood. It’s like hiring the contractor who lives on your street – there is another level of trust and engagement when you share space and cultural/social networks in real time day to day physical space.
“How I Built This with Guy Raz” – It is intimate and explores the startup process in a way that supports self-reflection. It is fun to identify traits with others who have accomplished their goals. Serendipitous breakthroughs come from hard work, persistence and soul-focus – a common thread that picks me up when I am sensing vulnerability or criticism.
Do what you want, just do it with self-respect and kindness to others.
A one night stay at a shmancy boutique hotel with my son – he loves the “hotel life”.
I started doing squats and lifting weights 9 months ago. I love my legs and butt and I eat like a monster but stay the same weight. Awesome. The habit I want to start but haven’t yet is opening up to potential romantic partnerships. Its been a while.
That wraps up this edition community of cultivators. Come back next tuesday for more.
