After struggling with issues of mental health and a learning disability, Christina Disler realized the power of having a supportive space for entrepreneurs and creatives to come together and be inspired by each other. So she created the Werklab here in Vancouver, BC to act as a spiritual and conscious coworking base for those looking to join a community.

Christina believes in the ability of vulnerability to act as a way to connect, create and innovate and has created a coworking space that preaches an agenda of mindfulness, meditation and slowing down.

Today we are exploring her journey of entrepreneurship, why she believes vulnerability and curiosity are the keys to success and ways to live a meaningful life by taking care of yourself. Christina was intentional with her vision for Werklab and puts the importance of human connection at the root of all of her innovation.

An episode all about tuning into yourself and the experiences of others, Christina is a prime example of the tremendous power of community. What intrigues you most about the Werklab holistic perspective? Share with us in the comments on the episode page.

“It was like seeking the prescription of what others were telling me versus listening to myself and getting really in tune with what lands true for me.” (8:54)

“We are a community of freelancers, of sole proprietors, of business owners, of remote workers, that come together as a collective and work out of the same space.” (18:58)

“By creating this space and this room to breathe and actually taking care of myself, I actually started to see things so much clearer. And that's when I really recognized that the space I created for myself I wanted to create for others in the physical sense.” (26:44)

“We want to make the world of wellness more aligned with the world of business and our life purpose.” (32:49)

“The lows will pass, but also the highs. That's just part of entrepreneurship, there will be a next day. And you will win an award and then what? Or you'll hit a goal and then what? Its all about being adaptive at being mindful in the moment and to enjoy the ride. Because that's really what it is, its a journey, it's not about any destination.” (36:37)
