For the past 6 months, I’ve been working from WeWork, Manchester. It was a great way to start the New Year, mixing with the hubbub and always looking for new opportunities. I’ve met some amazing people and made some kindred spirits on the same entrepreneurial journey.
However, in the words of Sir Alex Ferguson, “It’s now squeaky bum time”.
The success (or failure) of Twelve Scholars will depend on the next 4 weeks. We have our final two interviews for Issue 1 and we start interviewing for Issue 2. We need to complete the final stages of post-production and finalise the printing and fulfilment process. The next podcast series will go live early-October, and we want to have the printed magazine in everyone’s hand before then!
So for the next month, I’m locking myself away in our small studio in Bolton (aka the spare room in my house). I’ll miss the daily commute to Manchester, the social lunches, and the serendipity of which networking event to attend next… however, for the next 4 weeks, my home office will double up as the Twelve Scholars Editorial Floor.
So, a big thanks to WeWork for supporting Twelve Scholars on this journey, however, we now need to get this project over the line.
