Time for Change

As many of you are now aware, we've made the tough decision to close Radiant as a co-working space this month. We'd like to start by thanking you. For your time, for your interest and for your support. We have enjoyed the time we've spent with you, getting to know you, supporting female entrepreneurs and building strong ties within our community.

But while our doors as a co-working space will close, our hearts and our vision remain as strong as ever. The primary mission of Radiant is to support the community of female entrepreneurs through creation, collaboration and connection. We will continue to do this through regular networking events, speaker lead discussions and workshops. We will continue to bring our collective community together to build more and stronger female lead businesses.

Our first event will be in partnership with Vital Voices and the Sustainable Fashion Alliance on:
August 2nd
The Presentation Suite, 181 Fremont St, SF
How Mara Hoffman Transformed Her Supply Chain.

We're looking forward to seeing many of you there. Tickets and more info is available here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/how-mara-hoffman-transformed-her-supply-chain-tickets-47449885886

Kind Regards,

Temi & Tobi

Why Getting Started is More Important Than Succeeding

Why Getting Started is More Important Than Succeeding

Reading this article immediately inspired the RADIANT team with the attitude we want to take into 2018. We hope you find some words of wisdom in it too.

"Take a risk, get started, and contribute something. To your team, to your family, to your job, to your community. Whether or not you end up being number one in the world is irrelevant. Most of the time, the value you provide isn’t nearly as important as pushing yourself to provide it. This is especially true at first.

Having the courage to start is more important than succeeding because the people who consistently get started are the only ones who can end up finishing anything."
