What we're about

Working Public is a group for individuals who:

1. Recognize the productivity benefits of working/studying in public places such as coffee shops

2. Want to be held accountable by a group of motivated people while studying for an exam (the LSAT, college finals, the GRE, the GMAT, the SAT - you name it!), pursuing a difficult goal (starting a new business, breaking into a new career, etc.), or learning a new skill.

3. Want to be part of a community of people who are industrious, supportive and goal-oriented.

Weekly meetings will take place in a coffee shop.

During the first hour of the meeting, everyone will get the chance to talk about their goals and the progress they made the week before, what they will be doing this week to make further progress, and any challenges and obstacles that they are experiencing.

Once everyone is done talking, everyone starts working!

Meetings don’t have a fixed duration and people are free to work for as long as they like (until closing time should they wish to do so!)
