Meet Michelle!

michelle mazur

Dr. Michelle Mazur is a Speech Designer and Idea Architect which, in her own words, is “a fancy way of saying that I help super smart people (like you) get their ideas out their heads and communicated to the people who need to hear them most.”

If you ever struggled with how to end a presentation, Michelle created a free tool that walks you through how to create the final thought of your speech.

She spoke recently with Nearby Registry,  a gift registry service for shopping local, about her experience as a coworker.

Q: What made you decide to try coworking at Works Progress?

 A: I know many people go to a coworking space to be more productive, but I’m plenty productive at home. My problem is turning it off, so coworking gives me that work/life separation that you don’t get from being at home. Plus, I needed to get out of my house and interact with people. My fiance would come home from work and ask me about my day – and I’d regale him with stories about the cats. I needed more social interaction.

Q: What are the top 3 fun/inspirational/helpful things that have happened during your time at WP?

A: (1) Playing Spaceteam on Friday is a blast (2) having someone to bounce ideas off of, and (3) the office dog, Bailey, (right) is the cutest office greeter in the whole wide world. bailey sliderWalking into that space and being greeted by a friendly pup makes me feel instantly happy.

 Q: What would you say to someone who isn’t sure coworking is worth the investment?

 A: As an entrepreneur, having somewhere to go and meet clients made my business feel more like a real business. It’s worth the investment to feel like you are showing up bigger in your business.

Q: Anything else?

A: I think a coworking space membership would be a great gift. (We couldn’t agree more! Check us out on Nearby Registry.)
