Our creative industry niche here at the House isn't always the easiest thing to maintain; it'd be easier, in the short run, to say yes to all and never turn away a prospective member. It is, however, a benefit that makes us different than other spaces. The conversations, connections and collaborations between our Housemates come more naturally for it, and from a place where it's easier to have that sense of being among kindred spirits. "Creative", as we say, is more of state of mind and how you do vs. what you do. While most of our membership works in visually creative businesses, others, like Sue, work creatively in a business that isn't traditionally so.
Dr. Sue Babcock was one of our earlier Community members, and she came to us during a pivotal time in her career. Seeking to transition her practice from mostly in-person to online, Sue has worked to update and expand her blog, provide more online services as part of her practice, and increase her mindfulness meditation classes and retreats. She's established relationships here at the House to help her in the process, benefited from our great group of experts to answer questions along the way, and given so much back to our community at every turn - including the Friday morning mindfulness sessions she hosts here to help keep us centered, positive and present on through the weekend. We recently took a few moments over coffee to learn more about her journey, her motivations, and what's coming up on the horizon.
