Almost all the goal setting literature talks about accountability groups. The basic idea is that these groups make sure you keep working towards your goal. Whether it’s fitness, business, relationships, or maybe it’s an organizing-my-chaotic-house kinda goal, lots of folks sing the praises of being held accountable.
But most of the accountability groups I’ve been part of have sucked.
- Drill sergeant leaders who thought everyone should be barked at.
- An emphasis on talking about work versus actually doing work.
- Overbearing check-ins that treated me like a hamster on a wheel.
Until I remembered:
If their way doesn’t work, do it YOUR way.
My friend Stephanie and I created a group that worked for us. We gave it a whimsical name, and structured it to feel encouraging, progressive, and honoring of our desire to always feel free. It catapulted both our business and personal lives forward.
That experience radically changed how I felt about sharing my work day with others, so over the past 6 months, I’ve been privately coworking with some of my favorite people. These groups blend independence and community, and provide a flexible container for us to focus on our key work goals. Plus, we take stretch breaks, which usually include a whole lotta hip circles, so there’s that. We’ve moved big projects forward, crossed stubborn tasks off the to-do list, and created major momentum in our professional and personal lives. Completion is sweet.
I’m opening up these groups to new and old friends who are looking for a NON-bootcamp approach to work. If you want accountability that feels light and respectful… If you want to work, stretch and dance with women around the world… If you want to clear away the distractions and live on purpose, please join me for…
For the rest of 2016, I will be leading Coworking Creatives groups every month.
Each month’s group runs for 3 weeks. You’ll choose one specific thing to focus on for that 3 week period – career, creativity, spirituality, health, whatever. I’ll provide some prompts to help you set clear priorities and intentions and then…
Twice a week, every Tuesday and Thursday, we’ll get on the line for 60-minute coworking sessions that look like this:
- 11:30am – 11:55am EST / 8:30am – 8:55am PST: Not sure what you should be working on? Need laser coaching or straight up advice? This is your time to ask me anything. Come on early for live coaching, or skip this and join us at the top of the hour.
- 12:00pm – 1:00pm EST / 9am – 10am PST: This is when the actual coworking hour starts. We’ll begin with a quick meditation to get us grounded and present. And then, you’ll WORK on the area you’ve chosen. At the halfway mark, we’ll pause for some guided movement to keep your body loose, and then we’ll get back to it.
“Annika’s coworking group helps me stay focused. I love the mantra and the light-hearted feel of the halfway check-in. Plus, her group connects me with passionate, motivated people in a collective work time focus. I’m a fan!”
– Beth Mielbrecht
“Annika’s group is about ‘doing” in the light of ease and empowerment. I’m applying a whole new level of intention, focus and time management. I love creating in this collective space!”
– Patty Guzmán
“Annika’s group has been a great opportunity to build motivation and momentum. I absolutely loved last Thursday’s mantra – it was super powerful and helped me reconnect to the true purpose of my work.
– Marijana Cabrita
Coworking Creatives is a gentle + focused space to concentrate on what matters most.

Frequently Asked Questions
What if I miss a call? Will there be a recording?
Yes, you’ll be able to access the playback for each call. Plus, if you want to do another hour of guided work in between our live calls, the recordings are great for this purpose.
If I have a question during the coaching half-hour, do I have to use my name?
Absolutely not. Anonymity is just fine by me.
I’d prefer to talk with you about my goals / projects 1-on-1. How can we do that?
Right over here.
