Hi Andrew,I am in the process of using some of the marketing and event planning skills I learned during the cohousing development process to start a new career in meeting and event management. I have enrolled in a certificate program at Northeastern University and I have also joined MPI (Meeting Professionals International) and ISES (International Special Events Society) as a student member. I'm not at the point yet where I've been able to parlay this into a new career but I'm well on my way. Also, the learning experience that you go through in terms of how to communicate better; how to resolve conflicts more effectively and how to run meetings more efficiently is well worth it in just about any career setting.

My question is whether having been involved in a cohousing development has afforded you skills, abilities, or even accreditation(s) that you have been able to effectively use as the basis for a new career, or a new career path? I am equally interested to hear from those using their new skills as employees and as self-employed professionals, especially those with a technical background.
