2009 is Coworking’s Perfect Storm | I’m Outta Here!

Future Of Work | I’m Outta Here!

With roughly 600,000 people losing their jobs each month, it is getting difficult to imagine what all those people are going to do.  File for unemployment? Search Craig’s list for gigs? Refresh that database of contacts? Massage your LinkedIn profile? Probably all of these at some point.  But increasingly, as Intuit’s “The Future of Small Business”
