Wanted : An occasional workspace to get my stuff done without outside distractions. #MWorkLab

If you work from a home office, there is nothing more challenging than trying to get your stuff done when the kids are running amok.

Work from home with kids

Noises and distractions can make an important client call or the need to focus, nearly impossible and potentially embarrassing.

Wouldn’t it be great to be able to go somewhere outside of your home to get your work accomplished, but not do it in a public space like a coffee shop, library, park or even your car?

MWorkLab in the Tri-Cities is a collaborative workspace that allows you to rent a work space when you need it. They have four packages to choose from that will fit your needs. Starting September 2014, MWorkLab will even be offering childcare, just in case you want to get some work done while you’re on Parent Duty.

If you require a boardroom to run a meeting for a day, MWorkLab offers that as well. Perfect for individuals who normally rent a boardroom at a local hotel where the WiFi offered can tend to be a bit sketchy at times.

On April 7th, 2014 from 7:30-10:30pm, MWorkLab is hosting a “Great Evening Escape”. For $10, pop in, get some work done, chat with your friend over coffee or just have a little “me time”.

MWorkLab is located at #107-1533 Broadway, Port Coquitlam. Call 604-636-7038 or email michelle@mworklab.com. 



#BuggyBeds, the new defense against bed bugs! #YMCCommunity

Bed Bugs

Bed bugs have been in the news a lot over the past few years. When we travelled to New York in 2010, I recall seeing HUGE billboards advertising for exterminators and even the apartment that we had rented for the trip, had a notice that the building was being sprayed while we were staying there. When we can home, the library that we frequented had a notice up indicating that they were going to be closed because they were also treating the books for bed bugs.

When you thin about bed bugs, your first thoughts are probably , “GROSS, only dirty people have bed bugs! My house is clean, so there’s no way that we would have them!” You’d be surprised, but even 5 star hotels have been plagued by these little beasts. They stow away in luggage and get brought home with their hosts or deposited in the next hotel that the bags are brought to.

Bed bugs are usually active at night and feed off your dead skin cells. They wander about and can cause rashes and allergic reactions.

Early detection is the best way to eliminate an infestation in your home.

Enter, BuggyBeds. They swam with the Sharks on Shark Tank.
