Join us for Human Touch, our bi-weekly virtual seminar series, on Thursday, January 28, 11:00-11:30am EST as we chat with Garrett Tichy, the owner of hygge coworking & co-founder of smpl coworking software, on the topic of "Resilience."????Garrett knows firsthand the impact that COVID-19 has created on small businesses and how much entrepreneurs large and small have had to rely on their own resilience over the past year.??
"When you start to talk about stuff being really bad, I don't have a solution. I don't know what to do, and I don't know how to ask for help. I don't have a logical path forward because the landscape is changing every day." We've shared often over the past few months how the pandemic has affected small businesses and nonprofits we love, but we haven't given a ton of details on how we've been affected as a coworking space. This week on Zero to Ten we've got an extra special, long episode with hygge's founder and owner Garrett Tichy, and we get into the nitty gritty of what 2020 was like for us. He'll talk about our losses, how the tumultuous environment has affected his mental health, the decision to take on debt or not, and share the pretty grim, frank reality that there is no telling what the next few months will bring and if our small business will survive. It's not the cheeriest episode we've ever published, but it is one of the most realistic.
Garrett Tichy is the founder of one of the Charlotte area's most successful co-working businesses. Not only is it where Tryon Realty Partners is based, Hygge is home to hundreds of smaller and emerging businesses. This week, hear from Garrett how he got into co-working, learn about Hygge and what he is working on for 2020.
"I think 2020 has a lot of bright, shiny things potential in the horizon but also has an incredible amount of work ahead of it for myself," he told host Mary Johnson. We recorded this episode a few weeks ago on Garrett's birthday, so we got to hear a lot of his outlook on the new year and on him turning 36. It's a damn good episode - and we're not just saying that because he's the one who pays the bills.
