Nick Offerman visits Would Works--with a special message for millennials

When Linkedin invited Nick Offerman to participate in their new motivational series 

called #HelloMonday, he decided to bring the cameras to Would Works.  The #HelloMonday video series aims to inspire people to achieve their own definition of success for the week--so what is a more fitting backdrop to this message than Would Works on a Monday--where the artisans are working hard to achieve concrete and immediate life goals?

When just before filming Linkedin changed the subject of the series to #SundayScaries: Combatting weekend workplace woes, we had to reevaluate the message.  What does the Gen Z and millennial propensity towards workweek anxiety have to do with Would Works?  Nick reminds them that having a job is in fact quite a luxury. After all, our artisans are working hard to get back into the workforce and for the simple necessities a reliable paycheck provides. Without being guilt-inducing, Nick finds a way to deliver the message eloquently and humorously.
