Partner Spotlights are our way to shine a light on some of our amazing local partners across the country and give them a platform to tell their unique story. Amber, Owner and Community Manager of The Light House Cowork in Leduc wants to share hers!
Tell us about your business:
The Light House Cowork is a flexible workspace/business space the offers private offices, dedicated desks (shared office), and open flex business lounge. Catering to small businesses 1-4 team members and those who work from home who want a permanent or occasional flexible workspace where they can connect and collaborate with others to create community.
What is the one thing you would like people to know about your business?
I would love for people to know that there is an alternative to working alone and doing it alone when it comes to business. So often business owners feel that they have to have it all together. Business ownership (whether you are a sole proprietor, freelancer, small business, etc) is a lonely road. BUT it doesn’t have to be – COworking offers authentic community and connection with others to collaborate with.
What made you want to get into business here?
For me starting a coworking space was seeing a need that I wanted to be filled in our community. I wanted a bright open productive space to work where I wasn’t alone. Plus I am incredibly passionate about helping others succeed in business. When it came to location – Leduc was a no brainer, this is home and it’s where I want to be, I don’t want to drive anywhere else and what better place to be than in our beautiful Mainstreet downtown district? Plus I completely lucked out with a stunning historical building.
What’s your favourite part about owning or managing the business?
My favorite part of owning and being the community manager at The Light House Cowork is the ability to connect every day with various people, to talk through wins and struggles in business and life. I love just creating and being part of the authentic community we have here.
What local business would you like to see on GetintheLoop?
This is a hard question – there are so many really great businesses that are already on GetintheLoop… I would say that ATB Financial would be a great fit for GetintheLoop to highlight the ways they give back to businesses even if they aren’t ATB customers.
Is there a community cause or event that you support that you would like to give a shoutout to?
I would love to see more local non-profit and charities on the platform showcasing the work they do like The Boys and Girls Club or Rise Up Society.
