How did hygge or the hygge community help to calm that fear?
hygge is a great community of bright and talented people who are always there to lend a helping hand. I knew I was in in the right place for me the first time I felt like like everyone around me at hygge wanted me to succeed; that’s a pretty powerful feeling on those hard days running a business.
How’d you know hygge was YOUR place to build your business?
I remember my first day looking for coworking spaces. It was a random Saturday. I knocked on the door at hygge, and I was greeted with a warm smile by a woman whom I eventually learned was Torie Leslie. She asked me who was I there to meet, and I told her I was just interested in checking out the coworking space if there was a day pass available. She told to reach out to Garrett, but then told me to tell him that I was her guest for the day. At that moment, I was slightly blown away, not because of how cool hygge looked, but how this lady – who didn’t know me from a bag of chips – invited me in and claimed me as her guest. I’m not sure if she remembers the moment, but for me that was the first moment I saw that this was more than just a coworking space, it was family. I still feel that warmth.
