Get S*** Done Work Session

Productivity | December 23, 3-5pm | @IGC, 16 West 23rd Street, 4th fl.

 

Are you looking for time and space to focus on getting one discrete project done, done, done? Do you work better when surrounded by the hum of others who are busy at work? Bring your project – the one that’s been hanging over your head or lingering on your to-do list – and join a small group of fellow entrepreneurs for a focused two-hour work session. You will greet each other, state your intentions, and then side-by-side plug away until you can cross that project off your list once and for all! Boo-yah.
