There are many obvious benefits to working independently, but there are also many challenges, including struggles with procrastination, loneliness, work-life balance, distractions from partners/children, limited access to mentors or colleagues who can help solve a problem quickly, etc.). This group aims to help alleviate these challenges through group activities, workshops, and other events. 

If you're a freelancer, writer, remote worker, micro-preneur, digital nomad, scholar, student, or other location-independent professional living in Prague looking for ways to work more efficiently or happily, this group is meant for you.

Events include:

    Workshops, Trainings, & Lectures: When the opportunities arise, the group will host workshops, trainings, or lectures focused on improving the quality of one's work or work-life balance. If you have a great talk on this topic that you'd like to give, please let us know!

    Jelly! Jelly is a "work meetup" for people who can and often do work from anywhere with a desk and an internet connection but who would rather do it alongside others doing the same.

    The "Group Pomodoro Work Meetup": This is a bi-weekly (every-two week) meetup for an intensely focused four-hours of work in a group setting, starting early Monday morning to start the week off right.

    The "Critique-Free Writing Meetup": A weekly meetup for writers of any kind (scholarly, journalism, non-fiction, fiction, etc.) who could benefit from a sacred time and a shared/social context to just write, write, write each week.

    The Prague Writers Group: A bi-weekly meetup for creative writers to read and critique one another's work.

    [Your idea goes here!] We're open to other ideas from members of the group that might help all of us, ,  ways Workshops, lectures, Jellies (FREE meetups to work alongside other indie workers for the day), Mastermind groups and other activities to help freelancers and other independent workers thrive.

Events are in English and most members are either expatriates living in Prague or Czechs interested in connecting to an international community of independent workers (or just interested in improving their English :).

The Meetup Group is usually hosted at Locus Workspace, a coworking space (shared office, meeting, and event space) for freelancers and other independent workers in Prague who could work from home or a cafe, but would prefer to work alongside others and in a more professional and productivity enhancing environment. If you're an independent worker interested in working alongside others on a more regular basis, check out Locus's website and consider becoming a member. But note: You DO NOT need to be a member of Locus Workspace to be a member of this Meetup group or to participate in any of the events listed here.

Hope to see you at an upcoming meetup!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
