We rarely post personal stories on our blog, but the fires this month warrant an exception. We've finally downloaded some images & videos from that week, mostly from Tuesday, October 10, 2017 and Friday, October 13, 2017. It was a harrowing week, and we were so lucky that first responders were able to keep the Atlas Fire away from the house and the studio. Many others were not so fortunate.
Looking to change up your work environment, whether that's a change of pace from a coffee shop or just need to get out of the home office? Napa so desperately needed a space like Workmix - actually one of my first business ideas! Stephanie has created a space that freelancers, solorpreneurs, entrepreneurs, business travelers - anyone who just needs an inspiring place to work - can enjoy PLUS has a lounge-y vibe that lends itself to Workmix's happy hours and music events. Did we mention there's MEETING SPACE?? Back story on why we care about meeting space so much: A few years ago we tried to find meeting space in Napa. The 3 hotels we contacted were going to charge us $750 (plus fees for water. Water.) for 2 hours. Our last idea was the just rent the kids' birthday room at the movie theater because it was clean and only $100. Oh and quick access to popcorn. Ridiculous. So yay for actual meeting space to impress clients or just have a quiet space to brainstorm & plan.
Not too often do we get to see our work in print. There's something to be said for holding a magazine with your photos printed inside...
