    141. Don Ball on how LiquidSpace Pro is creating access to enterprise customers for the independent operator

    Don is an OG in the coworking world. He co-founded COCO Coworking and Fueled Collective.
    He's now working on select strategic projects, one of them being the Pro platform offered by LIquidSpace.

    Someone in corporate real estate may place 20 teams across the country. They need a one-stop platform to find space for all of their needs vs. working one-to-one with independent operators.
    LiquidSpace Pro aggregates independent operators, giving them access to the enterprise demand and making it easy for the enterprise customers to find great, local space for their employees.

    139. Compensation Structure for Community Managers

    When operators/owners hire Community Managers, they have often been running the space themselves for some time and get really anxious about replacing themselves with someone who cares as much as they do about the business.
    One way to align interests is to create a bonus structure that rewards the community manager based on revenue, or memberships closed. On this episode, I consider the Community Manager role and determine what type of compensation structure aligns well with the responsibilities of the typical Community Manager.
