If you ever sit down at the computer with the intention of writing a post for your coworking blog and end up staring at a blank screen wondering what to write about, I have some tough love for you:
You’re doing it wrong.
By the time you sit down to write, you should know, not only what you’re going to write, but you should have already brainstormed everything you want to say and have your points organized into an outline.
I know, it sounds a lot like school—and it kind of is.
But it’s also the most effective way to get your coworking story, brand and message out into the world.
