Episode #65: Work and Rest
The “what” is easy. Craftwork is a specialty coffee shop and vibrant membership-based workspace with locations in Fort Worth (Foundry, Camp Bowie, Magnolia) and Austin (Domain). We serve craft coffee and are a connected coworking space. But you knew that already. Our “why” is our heart – we desire to create spaces and places where our members and customers experience connection and community.
We hope you are particularly well on this Labor Day.
One of our Core Values at Craftwork is “Rest”. We joke that it is a core value out of necessity because it is difficult for many of us to live it out! Can you relate?
We hope this week’s Advocate encourages you to fully rest today and that you may find a new gratitude for the work and value you get to bring into the world because of the rest you take.
Work takes on many different forms. From parenting, to studying, to our work as an employee, freelancer, or entrepreneur. Few things shape our lives and the lives of our loved ones like work. There is also an important relationship between work and rest. We believe that work is a gift that is only fully appreciated when balanced with rest. We need rest to do our best work and we need work to do our best rest. We hope you are able to do both this week.
When you bring a friend who has never been to a Craftwork, we will give them a free drink of their choice (from our basics menu). (Honor code on bringing a friend new to Craftwork. Limit of 1 free drink per customer. Offer expires 9/9/19.)
College students, we know Sundays aren’t too restful for you. That’s why every Sunday, we will open up our Foundry Workspace to college students for FREE. Come by, check in with our staff, grab a seat, and hit those books. We want to provide a space where you can focus, feel comfortable, and enjoy community. Our workspace is open 12-5pm. Spots are limited to 15 students (each week), so make sure to RSVP here! (Offer only applies to Craftwork Foundry location).
