June Canadian CoWorker eMag. Join Us Tomorrow For Friday Feast with Special Guest Patti Jannetta, Chair Italfest on Partnerships & Events to Grow Your Business. Port Credit Next Coworking Site! STEAM Works Studio Summer Camps Vol. 4 Issue 4

Dear Colleague,
Welcome to Summer! It’s great to be back after a busy month of travel to various professional learning conferences, scoping out prospective coworking locations and events throughout North America. One thing I realized is how much I missed our workspace, and in particular our community that is made up of passionate entrepreneurs who want to make an impact. It’s about the people and very much a family atmosphere.
On that note, do plan to join us tomorrow at 1pm for our monthly Friday Feast potluck! We are thrilled to have Mississauga’s very own, Patti Jannetta, singer & songwriter, who I’m honoured to be teamed up with on the committee hosting the 10th Anniversary Mississauga Italfest August 12-13 at Mississauga City Hall, Celebration Square.
I’m excited to share that as things return back to a sense of normalcy, we’ve accelerated our conversations and plans in Port Credit for coworking site locations with our friends at Lakeview Village featured in this report as well as with Ward1 Counsellor Stephen Dasko who has been immensely supportive.

The Canadian Coworker Spring March eMagazine Presented by MindShare Workspace CEO Message of Growth! > Friday Feast is Back!– Launch of MindShare Investment Club. Join us March 25! Pls RSVP>>MindShareTV ICTC WIL Podcast, IDEA Mississauga Launch, Top 5 News Stories! Vol. 4 Issue 2

Dear Colleague,
Happy Spring! Coworking has come of age with residents of Mississauga appreciating the importance of a balanced lifestyle and the notion of  #liveworkplaylearn in your local area; which in large part inspired the MindShare Workspace business concept. We are seeing a strong demand for offices and the hybrid work spaces as not everyone has a good setup at home, or just need a change of scenery to work, or learn.

We are thrilled to be re-opening with a sense of normalcy as we scale up our capacity.  Hence, we are hopeful and incredibly optimistic that 2022 will be pivotal year for you to cease the moment and create new opportunities for growth.

The caveat is that we can’t let our guard down fully yet. Something that we’ve advocated at Mindshare in order to keep our members safe. And, knock on wood, we’ve had zero issues during the past two years.
We’re also witnessing a greater appetite for people to start their own business as a lifestyle choice, one of the positive outcomes of the pandemic is the realization that one needs to take control of their lives to follow their passion.

Special Fall edition of the MindShare Canadian CoWorker eMag. October Marks Small Business Month as we Celebrate Entrepreneurship in Mississauga

Dear Colleague,
Welcome to our special Fall edition of the MindShare Canadian CoWorker eMag.
 October marks small business month as we celebrate entrepreneurship in Mississauga and beyond! Be sure to checkout our vast resources shared to support you in your strategic growth!
It’s been wonderful to re-connect with our coworking community, strategic partners, mall shop keepers and customers as we get settled back to business in the ‘new normal.’
The notion of coworking has come of age as we redefine the future of work and learning.
We’ve had university students join us, many new business members who cannot work at home as well as the growing trend of remote hybrid workers (prefer to work away from home several days per week).
Here’s a common theme emerging from our new members, “At this point I’m tired of working from home since Covid… and kids are making it really difficult for me to focus.” Hence, we are also exploring expansion to the unit next door in an effort to meet the growing demand for coworking in the 905 region.
It’s never been a more opportune time to launch a new business! Come join us for a tour to learn more about our special hybrid desk offer, or our startup program at $199/month!
I hope you enjoy this Special Fall Issue of the MindShare Canadian CoWorker eMag.

The Canadian Coworker May eMagazine Presented by MindShare Workspace >> Explore the Future Trends in the very Hot GTA Real Estate market

Welcome to our Special May CoWorker eMagazine.

One Year Ago, Our World Changed Forever:5 Lessons for the Future of Work & Learning

Sitting at a lunch table, I listened with intrigue to a very keen business executive from the U.S share his vision for our co-working business expansion into the north eastern U.S. He had contacted me out of the blue. They owned 16 malls he declared and sought out my company after extensive research as the ideal partner. He did his homework as he pulled out a glossy report on us that included a large coloured layout of a premium mall. He pointed to our full coloured Mindshare logo that was situated next to the Apple store as to the proposed location. As founder of Canada’s first shopping mall located coworking space, this seemed like a great expansion opportunity into the U.S. That same afternoon, we got word from our mall management that our world was about to change forever–immediate full closure.

This was our World War III. The battle against COVID-19 that continues to linger. I remain hopeful and grateful daily despite what still feels like a bad dream, that will go away sooner than later with the vaccine coming. I always felt grateful for how safe Canada felt, having heard war stories from my immigrant parents growing up. The unknowns resulted in a sense of panic at times early on during the pandemic as we tried to make sense of it at all.
