takes WFH focus to the next level.
It's been huge for me because it offers an extra layer of focus commitment and the accountability of others who aren't at your company.
And it does it in a way that's not disruptive to your day-to-day work schedule too.
As nerdy as it may sound, I've gotten really into Flow Club's live video co-working for focus + camaraderie. Sessions have five-minute opening + closing rituals and 50 minutes of uninterrupted work. I have three invites if anyone wants to try it out 👀 flow.club
Wow, already did 100 sessions in @flowdotclub - that means i'm paying less than 2 dollars an hour per year to do the best, most focused work of my life. Money well spent.
Very interesting and unique business - highly recommended for distractible remote workers.
I am completely obsessed with Flow Club...my new secret sauce for productivity and focus. For anyone not yet in the know: Flow.Club is an online co-working community.
Each session starts with 5 minutes of goal setting with your host & the 4-8 other people in your session. Each session culminates with 5 minutes of celebration (with 50 minutes in between for work & awesome music, curated by the host).
Big thanks to Haley Bryant and Taylor Coil for getting me hooked. I'm doing 6 Flow Clubs today and couldn't be more excited for the catalyst to focus.
For the past few months I've had the pleasure of working with Flow.Club (a YC backed virtual co-working space) and I FINALLY got to meet the friendly faces behind it all last week. If you're looking to work with an early stage company, learn with 3rd time founders, and make magic happen with an all around incredible team, they are HIRING - check them out!
"Flow club fits in the most important part of getting and maintaining flow: the doing part."
Last night, a friend and I went out to dinner. She asked me if 7:15 pm would be too late to meet and I replied "For you, I will stay out past my bedtime." 😊
I get up really early every day so on the opposite end go to bed early. When the clock read 5:30 am as I woke up this morning, I was disappointed. It was worth "sleeping in" to see my friend but I crave that morning alone time of waking closer to 4:00 or 4:30 am.
I have been a remote employee since 2006 so (other than the pandemic year) I'm used to being alone during the day. Yet there is still something magical that happens in those early morning hours. I think it's because I know that I won't have any interruptions. No emails, no Slack messages, no Zoom calls. Sure, I could turn off notifications during the day but it's not quite the same as knowing nothing will be waiting for me.
I can get into a flow state. Between music (with inspiration from Flow.Club), a candle or incense, and coffee my brain turns on.
Early morning is not for everyone but I'm a firm believer that everyone should find a "flow state" time that works for them. And try out different times of the day and different ways of setting oneself up for that best work.
I am getting so much done with FlowClub now. I had a bad habit, for years, of not being able to get into flow during the work day and resorting to working on weekends because I wouldn't be interrupted. FlowClub has changed that for me already. It's a simple idea, but so valuable.
Finished my first session with @flowdotclub
Can see myself making a regular habit of this. I've always felt like someone who's most focused in meetings, even though I know that's not where the majority of deep work gets done. This felt like the best of both worlds.
In @flowdotclub I get to work alongside founders who do *everything* That's the job early on...not just at the company level but when a new team/dept is getting started: taking problems/projects from 0-1 then hiring someone awesome to take it from 1-100.
Put off documenting a 9 step process for prepping data in Google sheets and importing into Notion for few months now. Was important, but not urgent. Used an end of day @flowdotclub to knock it out and record 10 videos. Feels so good to be doing proactive instead of reactive work!
Just finished my first 1 hour @flowdotclub session and loved it. Structured for accountability with check-ins at start and end of session with group. Great music and vibes. Knocked out a bunch of things I was putting off. I see a regular spot for this in my week.
If you are self employed, or working independently on a project, I think @flowdotclub is especially valuable. It's easy to get sucked down productivity rabbit holes when you are solo/executing independently. Flow Club creates some accountability, even for solo work.
Someone should run a project management service for solopreneurs. I bet a great project manager could take on 10 clients at once. Maybe more.
I would love to be project managed
I can see this being an evolution or an additional service that comes out of @flowdotclub
After many years of procrastination affliction, I've figured out a system that helps me put out great work
1. Simple writing tasklist shared with my awesome manager for accountability
2. My personal Asana/Notion workflow
2. Flow.Club for deep work sprints (amazing what you can get done in 60m sessions)
That's it. I'm now far more productive (and sane) than I've been since I entered university.
The value I get out of @flowdotclub is insane. Purple blocks represent computer time, light blue represents focused, single-task work. It's clear when I'm in FC and when I'm not, and when in FC, I'm doing my best work.
If they raised prices 5-10X, I'd pay, no questions asked.
TL;DR: I'm hosting Flow.Club starting next week -- join me? It's like if your favorite coworking space hosted power hours with *very impressive startup people* and also, nobody will notice if you're wearing PJs. It’s a place to share space with inspiring people, cheer for each other, and get your best work done.

Flow Club helped me run with a passion project this year through focused deep work and a supportive community.
My favorite thing to do at work on a Friday?
This simple concept encourages people from different companies to work together virtually and hold each other accountable.
I use it towards the end of my day to stay motivated and keep pushing through projects that I usually might put off.
I love it because it helps me set myself up for a successful next week and I feel great going into the weekend knowing that I got everything done.
It has come full circle since that viral post in July! I’m officially one of the hosts at Flow.Club 😎
Within the last three months, I’ve clocked in 240+ productive sessions. It’s how I’m able to have 20-25 hr work weeks, get quality work done (ex. the #b2bsaas #marketing resource library you’ve been reading/sharing), and have the mental capacity to focus more on my personal life!
What I really love about this virtual coworking platform…
👥The community I get to interact with on a daily/weekly basis
"I like having one afternoon session every single day. Can I turn what would typically be unproductive time into a really productive, focused hour and feel good about it?"
I've been working remotely for 2+ years and have been freelancing since May. These are the tools/habits that make it possible:
Flow.Club virtual coworking hours get me into the writing zone when I'm on deadline (I use the chat function to "race against myself" on word count). I like scheduling sessions between 1-3pm which is usually when I am the least focused
has officially launched on Product Hunt! As a solopreneur working from home, Flow Club has been a game changer. If you want to do more productive work and meet awesome people, come sign up and join me in a session (I host the 9am session on Wednesday and Thursdays!)
Working for yourself has its own challenges. Discipline and consistency are high up on the list.
I’m grateful that Tamilore Oladipo invited me to Flow.Club a while back. It’s a virtual co-working platform where founders, builders, and operators drop into a flow state and get work done in a sprint format.
I’ve clocked in ~50 hours within 3.5 weeks and...
