For many people, remote work became a reality in the Spring of 2020 as the Coronavirus ripped through the world. For some, remote work has been a way of life long before that. Craig Inzana is one of those.

Inzana, who is a marketing expert and media producer, spent much of 2019 touring the United States in his car. He was determined to see as much as possible and embraced a fully remote work style. In fact, he’s written a book on the subject titled Digital Nomad: How to go from in the Office to on the Road (you should buy a copy here). Sadly, his travels came to end in mid-2019 after a car accident.

Originally from Pennsylvania, Craig decided he wanted to land somewhere different. He recalled spending some time in Omaha on his travels and enjoyed the city. So, he returned with the idea of making Omaha a home. It was about this time that Craig walked into Populus, introduced himself, and signed up as a coworking member.

Craig became one of the founding members of Populus and has been a staple of the community. Through his company Craig Inzana Media he helps clients around the country with digital marketing like social media, content creation, analytics, and research. Of course every good digital media consultant should be creating their own content, and Craig Inzana is that guy. He is a regular writer on his blog and you can find him on YouTube where his videos have tens of thousands of views. Do shorter videos perform better than longer videos? If you want the answer, he has it for you right here. Craig also has a podcast called Happy You’re Here that is positive and encouraging. The point is, if anyone is looking for a marketing producer who actually practices what he preaches, that is Craig Inzana.

As a regular coworking member at Populus, Craig has been a crucial help to many members. Some members are clients, while others simply pick his brain over a beer or a cup of tea in the Populus kitchen. This has been an advantage to the coworking community – the ability to network with experts and ask for advice. Because Craig lives in midtown, he has a quick walk to the coworking space each day. You’ll often see Craig strolling our neighborhood on nice afternoon with a messenger bag over his shoulder and a mug in his hand. When you see him, be sure to say “hello” and if you’re lucky you’ll have time for a good conversation.

When Populus Coworking first went public with plans to open in November of 2018, Founder Micah Yost received an email from Steve McGreer. The email itself wasn’t that atypical. “Let’s get coffee,” was the essence of the communication. About a week later, Yost and McGreer met at an Omaha Starbucks. They discussed business, life, and Steve’s new company Asset Environments. It was an exciting time for both Founders as the looked to the future of their young companies and planned for great things. 

Asset Environments has accomplished some incredible things since that meeting.

Asset Environments would become one of the very first companies to join Populus Coworking. Since that first coffee meeting, Steve’s consulting group has quickly grown. The team started with a coworking membership, moved into a small office, and then moved to a larger office very quickly. Asset Environments works around Omaha, and across the country, providing building owners technical and financial solutions. One key service is helping with PACE financing. This is a special type of financing based on energy efficiency. In 2018, Asset Environments assisted Shamrock Development with the largest PACE financing deal in the country. As of mid-2020, Steve’s team has over $67 million in PACE financing deals approved.

The Asset Environments team has had other amazing accomplishments. As experienced engineers, project managers, and administrators they’ve become sought after for building system upgrades and environmental updates. In fact, the team has helped reduce about 4 million pounds of CO2 on a yearly basis. They do this trough working with control systems, heating, cooling, lighting, and many other factors in large buildings. Their innovative approach combines financial planning, detailed engineering, and technology solutions.
