My CF membership started as a way to get out of the house and work around other people, but today it’s my business lifeline. The community at The Candy Factory is warm and encouraging and instantly supportive. There’s so much genuine interest and good karma floating around that it’s easy to be inspired and empowered here. I swear there’s only 2 degrees of separation between me and any kind of business contact I could possibly need to advance my business. I can hunker-down in a conference room and crank out work, or set up in the main hall and soak up the positive energy that feeds a state of creative flow. It’s a great tribe to be part of — smart, motivated, kick-ass folks who appreciate each other!
