Summertime Adventures Around The Sound

Summertime Adventures Around The Sound

Coworking is meant to help with your flexible work schedule. Summer in the Puget Sound is a great place to practice the flexible part of your working (or not working) arrangement! Here are a few of our recommendations for your summer to-do list. For kids of all ages.

Three Unusual Picnic Spots!

    Edmonds-Kingston Ferry

    Edmonds-Kingston Ferry

  1. Kingston Beach. Walk on to the Edmonds-Kingston Ferry for a short ride before enjoying a picnic on the beach by the ferry terminal. If you’d rather have crepes for lunch (and who could blame you), J’aime Les Crepes is a delicious stop by the ferry port in Kingston. Our favorite mini-donut and ice cream stop can be found at the small coffee kiosk when boarding the ferry for your return trip.
  2. Jetty Island. Catch the free Jetty Island walk on ferry and enjoy a day at the beach like no other. This is a great spot for flying kites, taking long walks, picnics, and sand castle building.
    Jetty Island Crowds

    Jetty Island Crowds

  3. Electric boat on South Lake Union. Grab some friends, cheese, wine, and a couple of good board games and enjoy an evening two hour cruise around Lake Union. This is really the way to go when you have a visitor in town or just want to get out and do something new.

Two Excellent Bike Trails For All Levels:

Getting out on the Centennial Trail

Getting out on the Centennial Trail

  1. Centenial Trail – the Centennial Trail is a beautiful and relaxing ride between Snohomish and Arlington with plenty of beauty and stops along the way. The path is even and wide and lovely for bike enthusiasts at any level. Bring a picnic or plan to eat dinner in historic downtown Snohomish, especially if it coincides with one of their Snohomish Wine Walks!
  2. Bicycle Sundays – Lake Washington Boulevard closes to cars between Mount Baker Beach and Seward park on select Sundays through the Summer from 10am-6pm. 

 

Six Super-Sweet Splash Playgrounds:

  1. Forest Park in Everett. This park has it all: a petting farm, splash zone, playground, picnic area, and covered pool!
  2. Jefferson Park in Tacoma. This park spans over 15 acres with spray park and playground. Take a quick stop down town for Legendary Donuts on your way home!
  3. Les Gove Park Rotary Play Sprayground in Auburn. This park is surrounded by lots to do with picnic areas, trails and restaurants.
  4. Seattle Center International Fountain. Great for relaxing in the sun, the fountain is often timed to music, and while you’re there, stop by the new musical playground behind the EMP Museum.
  5. Northacres Park in north Seattle (just north of Northgate Mall). This park is surrounded by a  small forest, picnic area, playground, off leash dog park and more!
  6. Warren G. Magnuson Park Wading Pool near University Village. Magnuson has a shocking amount of things to do with beaches, playground, butterfly garden, and off-leash dog park in addition to their wading pool.

Three TIPS to Create a Family Friendly Workspace

photo 4

Creating a space for work & play.

When my dream to open a coworking space with flexible, on-site childcare met with significant challenges early on, my business partner and I worked to create the next best alternative. My original dream was a safe place for parents to bring their children to work, but avoid interruptions. What we quickly discovered was that coworking and childcare in the United States, as it has proven over and over in the last ten years, is a high risk, low gain endeavor. That is one reason why we have started a nonprofit organization that will focus on meeting the needs of mothers in business. For more information on the Women’s Business Incubator, click here.

Works Progress is an adult coworking workspace, but we are family friendly. Because it is my business, I have had to regularly bring my children. They have probably spent more time at my coworking office than at our home.

But knowing that they might encounter small children on-site, will other people want to become members? Is that the atmosphere that I want to present at our coworking space for adult professionals?

While it’s true that Works Progress is meant to be as productive as possible for working adults, it’s also true that – YES – I absolutely want our space to be inviting for families. Our doors are open for parents who are trying to find that illusive work-life balance. We want everyone to feel that they are welcome during the work day and during member events, family in-tow if needed.

Over the last three years, we have had time to hone our community to include everyone – even parents! Here are our top three tips for creating a welcoming environment without being too disruptive:

  1. Space that welcomes childrenSometime in the first year we bought a train table for our lobby. This one investment may
    IMG_9364

    The Burrow has room to play & work.

    have been the best $100 we ever spent. It was one of the first things that anyone saw when they entered our space. Along those lines, we try to put our best foot forward from the very beginning. We always welcome children on facility tours. In addition, we have found that sometimes, parents just need an extra hour to get some work done. That’s one reason why we created a special place for the train table with our recent expansion. ‘The Burrow’ is a small, child-friendly meeting room. Parents who are in-between good options can still bring their children in with them. In addition to the train table, the Burrow now includes a small play kitchen, chalkboard wall, coloring table, legos, and blocks. While parents have to mind their children at all times, at least they still have an out-of-the house option to try to complete their work on time.

  2. Family friendly eventsIt’s so hard to network when you’re a parent. Isn’t 7pm bedtime? Dance lessons at 5:30pm? Is it professional to bring your three year old to happy hour? We can’t solve all problems, but we do invite our members to bring their family to the majority of our in-house events. We try to make sure that child friendly snacks are as much a part of our happy hour as wine is for the adults. Some events, like movie night and board game night, are especially open to families.
  3. FlexibilityOur member packages were designed with working parents in mind. Some might just need a few hours while their children are in preschool. Others may try to work full time out of the house – but not too far away – to balance their work and family needs. We want to provide the flexibility that helps meet the needs of todays modern family. Check out our flexible daily and hourly packages here.

For traditional work environments, these may not be policies that you can adopt, however, by connecting with coworking spaces close to where your employees live, you might be able to support and retain your employees by offering telework, remote work and job sharing options through their closest coworking office.

WP Featured Member: Jessica Rhode

Last month we sat down with Carrie Beck who works at Southern Explorations arranging trips to Antarctica. For this month’s Works Progress Featured Member, we decided to explore the northern hemisphere- the Arctic to be precise. Member Jessica Rohde (pronounced row-dee) is the Web Manager and Project coordinator for the Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee (IARPC).

How long have you been doing this?

This is a real mammoth bone -- not a fossil or a replica! It's been preserved in ice for 12,000 years

This is a real mammoth bone — not a fossil or a replica! It’s been preserved in ice for 12,000 years.

About a year and a half.

Tell me more about what you do

I help scientists who study the Arctic communicate and collaborate across different scientific disciplines and also across the public and private sectors. For example, we have a collaboration team that focuses on the Chukchi and Beaufort Seas – those are off the North coast of Alaska. Normally they are covered with ice for a lot of the year. But the Arctic is warming very quickly — about twice as fast as the rest of the world. So there is less ice than before and this affects many aspects of the ecosystem – the circulation of the water, the animals and people who hunt for food on the ice, etc. In my work, I might connect a physical oceanographer from a government agency with a scientist they might not otherwise work with, like a social scientist from a non-profit in Alaska. They might work on a problem together like predicting how much sea ice there will be in a given season and how it might affect the community that uses that part of the ocean.

What are your favorite things about working for IARPC?

I can work from anywhere – so I travel a lot! I’ve just visited Fairbanks, Alaska last month and played around on a snowmobile. My next stop is the Galapagos where I can’t wait to swim with penguins at the equator!

The benefits are great, but the best part is the feeling of making a difference in the world. The Arctic is changing very fast, but I’m helping scientists team up to solve hard problems and accelerate the pace of Arctic research.

Who are your typical clients?

Scientists who work on all different types of Arctic research: such as social scientists studying indigenous communities, wildfire ecologists studying the effects of fire on plant and animal communities, marine scientists studying marine mammals, fish and seabirds, atmospheric chemists studying the different gases in the atmosphere.

How do you communicate with your clients?

I run webinars, almost one everyday. A lot of video conferencing, telephone calls. Endless emails. It’s not so bad, but I do love to get the chance to talk to people face to face. Conferences are like vacations for me.

How has a coworking space benefited you?

I like feeling more focused when I’m here and not having the distractions of being in my home. I really like getting to meet people and all the social events you guys do. Especially Whiskey Progress!

Spartan Race, WA 2015


What do you like to do on your time off?

Trail running, cross-country skiing, travel, trying new extreme sports and wandering around looking for adventures. Oh, and I save the polar bears. 😉

 Favorite place to eat in Seattle?

Oh gosh. I’m a vegan so it’s really hard… Araya’s Thai food. There is one in the U-district and Capitol Hill and it’s all vegan but you wouldn’t know that because it’s AMAZING. Their avocado curry is the bomb.

What do you like to listen to?

*laughs* Well, usually I listen to really crappy catchy pop music. Sometimes when I’m feeling more sophisticated I’ll listed to KEXP or I listen to a lot of science and travel pod casts. 

 

Too much fun on a snowmobile in Fairbanks, Alaska on her previous trip.

Favorite WP event so far?

I don’t know if I can pick a favorite. They’re all good but I really like Spaceteam Fridays.

Thank you, Jessica, for letting us get to know you more! It is with bittersweet feelings to announce Jessica will be moving to Washington, D.C. after her trip to Ecuador. The Works Progress team and members are excited for all of Jessica’s upcoming adventures but are sad to see her go! Follow her travel adventures on Instagram @RockyRohde

Best of luck on all your future endeavors! Be sure to visit us when you can 🙂

Works Progress Named One of the Top Coworking Spaces in the World

banner_rec

Today we are celebrating many things, including our three year anniversary, the recovery and safety of everyone in our neighborhood after the frightening explosion two weeks ago, and the members that have made our community what it is today. I am pleased to announce that we recently made it on the list for the top 30 coworking spaces in the world! When they wrote to tell us that we made it, this is what they said,

“The competition for this list has been pretty intense and the voting has been going for months. Your community really supports you guys and you deserve to be in the article.  http://www.symmetry50.com/blog/2016/coworking.”

I started Works Progress with Jessie Rymph over three years ago with many big dreams. What I didn’t expect was that it would take so much out of me and give so much back. Our business and our members together have prevailed through many challenges over the last three years. I couldn’t have done it without all our members.

Having worked closely with some of the other space operators in Seattle, many of whom have become friends and mentors over the last several years, I am surprised that many of the other amazing coworking spaces in our city were not listed. I have come to believe that coworking everywhere is helping to bring about a different way of working and living. I may be a little zealous, but I have taken it to heart that coworking is not just the next generation of work, but is in fact, helping to create sustainable communities all around the world. And the individuals joining our spaces all over the world are the essential part of the vision!

I am very honored that so many of our members voted for us and care about Works Progress, but more than that, I am so thrilled to have met the people that come through our doors and take part in our community. Thank you!

Carrie taking a break from shredding the slopes of Antarctica and enjoying the gorgeous view.

Late last summer, Works Progress was fortunate to sign Carrie Beck to be one of our dedicated desk members. For the last 5 and a half years, Carrie has worked as a Sales and Operations specialist for Southern Explorations. In November, she went on her second trip to Antarctica. We caught up with Carrie upon her return to learn more.

Tell us more about Southern Explorations and what you do

Southern Explorations is independently owned and was started about ten years ago. Our founder used to be a guide in South America so he has created a lot of personal relationships there. As for me, I do a lot of sales and customer service. I currently focus on arranging tours to  Patagonia and Antarctica. I’ve also arranged trips to the Galapagos and Peru in the past. The Galapagos Islands account for about 40% of my company’s sales.  Once people are booked, I handle  arrangements for hotels, transfers, guides, flights-just putting together the whole package. Primarily we do small groups and we arrange a lot of private custom tours. It’s all very tailored to what the guests want.

What is your favorite thing about what you do?

Oh definitely the travel, which is once a year. I wish it was more but all the trips are amazing. I’ve gone to Antarctica twice, the Galapagos three times, Patagonia a couple times, and Machu Picchu. The Falkland Islands and South Georgia Island were part of my first cruise to Antarctica and both of those destinations were incredible. I’ve always been passionate about travel.

Who are your typical clients?

 Our trips are fairly high end so we tend to get baby boomers and retirees, although I’ve noticed a trend of younger clientele here and there. Mostly people in their 50’s  and 60’s though, sometimes families with teenagers.

How do you communicate with your clients?

Primarily through email and phone. Some people are phone talkers, which is good since talking on the phone allows for much better communication. Depends on the situation, I guess.

Carrie at Waterboat Point

What are the trips like?

For my very first trip with the company, I traveled to Peru, and Ecuador where I visited the Amazon, Machu Picchu and the Galapagos. The purpose of the trip was to get to know the place well- know what experience you’re trying to sell. Do some hotel inspections, get an idea of what they’re like, that type of thing. You have a guide, mostly a personal guide. During these trips, we usually travel individually but once in a while you can bring a spouse, a parent, someone like that. Trips are typically 2-3 weeks long. It’s really important to have personal experience of the destinations we sell. It helps build trust with our passengers and gives them confidence that we know what we’re talking about and will provide a top-notch travel experience.

Where were you before coworking at Works Progress?

We had an office in Seattle previously, but now most of us work remotely. I like the office setting and am really enjoying Works Progress

How has a coworking space benefited you?

It’s nice to have social interactions. At home, it’s tempting to never get out of pajamas, never talk to anybody- it’s just not good for your mental health. I like the group events we have here at Works Progress. I’ve made friends- I just went out to lunch with Jessica the other day. Then there’s networking opportunities. Don’t understand something about insurance? Oh, I can go ask Cindy! Things like that.

What do you like to do on your time off?

Travel, of course.  I also love to be active and get outdoors. Snowboarding and cycling are my two primary passions right now. Or I can be totally lazy and just stream Netflix or read a novel.

Alright. Now we’re getting to the tough questions… favorite place to eat in Seattle?

Oh man, that is a tough question! Well here in Greenwood, Naked City Brewing is great for beer and food. In West Seattle, there’s this excellent sushi place called Mashiko. I  am also obsessed with Coyle’s Bake Shop. I’m not a coffee connoisseur, but their lattes are really good, and every baked good I’ve ever eaten there has been divine.

What do you like to listen to?

Florence and the Machine, Of Monsters and Men, Bruce Springsteen, Green Day… I guess alternative, classic rock, and indie rock?

Thank you, Carrie, for sitting down with us to be our very first WP Featured Member! You can catch Carrie drinking some yummy tea at her desk by the “I Want to Believe”/Tardis poster.  Be careful- we hear from fellow coworking members that listening in on some of her calls may result in you wanting to pack up and head south to chill with some penguins!

Shapeshifting the Frozen Continent:

“I stood on the deck of the Akademik Ioffe, a small ship dedicated to tourism and research in the polar regions, watching a crane lower a zodiac from the ship toward the icy water. Inside the zodiac was our driver, along with an enormous bag of our equipment–ski and snowboard boots, ski poles, ice axes, etc, as well as a couple bundles of skis and snowboards lashed together with nylon straps. I was all “rugged up” as our British expedition leader would say, and felt a bit like the Michelin Man with a transceiver under my jacket and a climbing harness squeezed over my snowboard pants…”
