Cool Coworking Spaces with Cecilia Chiolerio

Published on: 24th February, 2021

Cecilia Chiolerio is the co-founder of Two Stay, a company that provides low cost, flexible coworking spaces in major European cities. By utilising cafés, bars and restaurants which are not usually open for business during the day, Two Stay offers professionals a quiet yet welcoming and collaborative place to do their work.

In this podcast, Cecilia explains 

  • where the idea of using existing empty spaces for coworking came from, and how she refined the concept over time
  • the importance of shipping your product before it’s 'ready' and of creating value for all stakeholders
  • how she aligns her business with her values and what keeps her motivated
  • how she deals with self-doubt and black days, and how having a mentor has been a game changer
  • what the coronavirus pandemic taught her about coworking needs.

About the Podcast

A solid grounding on which to practice your audacity.
AudaciousNess showcases individuals who have set themselves bold, audacious goals and have worked to achieve them. Our purpose is to inspire people to act with the courage to create a positive impact in the world.

Through interviewing 'regular people' about their audacious goals, we highlight the fact that role models are everywhere. Each and every one of us can have an impact in some way. Our goal is to enable a courageous community that honours their genius and lives their calling.

The name 'AudaciousNess' has two components: audacious, meaning 'bold', and ness, meaning 'a strip of land projecting into a body of water'. We believe having a solid grounding on which to practice your audacity is crucial, or, in the words of the great philosopher king Marcus Aurelius (Meditations, 4.49):

"Be like the promontory against which the waves continually break, but it stands firm and tames the fury of the water around it."
