What's happening this Fall near Grind

Literally everyone on your News Feed is posting about pumpkin spice lattes, which can only mean one thing––fall is in the air! This season contains some of the best traditions, like pumpkin picking, jumping into a pile of leaves and hayrides––just to name a few. We made a list of some (free) events happening in New York and Chicago near Grind locations so you can celebrate the season the right way.

Three reasons why Snapchat is the future of Social Media

I was always the person who refused to download Snapchat. I mean, I just didn’t get it. What in the world is a ‘filter’? Is it like a Brita filter? Fast forward to today and you will find me on Snapchat at any given time of the day. From capturing my post-graduate adventures, to capturing the wonky and interesting sights of New York City, Snapchat is an app like no other. It brings personality. It puts the social in social media.

What is your profession? How does coworking fit into your work-life?

I’m a Certified Life Coach & Consulting Chief Wellness Officer for Grind. I joined the coworking world about 2 years ago. I’d had an office for a couple of years, but it started to feel very isolated, so the search began for the ideal coworking space. Grind works well for me for two reasons: 1) it has an open floorplan which allows me to be around and interact with other entrepreneurs. 2) it has phone cabins and small conference rooms where I can have coaching sessions with clients. I appreciate introducing my clients to an energetic, high-functioning environment where people are making things happen. I also dig the minimalist vibe/aesthetic.
