      MZ Goodman / BASE

      We caught up with MZ Goodman, a native New Yorker raised in Montreal.

      What’s the name of your company and what is your title
      I’m the founder of BASE, urban coliving for special needs young adults

      What inspired you to begin (working at) your company
      I’m a parent of a special needs kid and there’s so much to fix!

      What quote do you live by?

      I have two! On a day-to-day basis, as a working mom who is trying to build a business, endlessly prioritizing and re-prioritizing, while co-managing a household, I generally abide by “there is no better time than the present”. Do things well, get them done and move forward. Try not to procrastinate. On a more macro level I’d have to go with something my own mother always told us growing up: “that which does not kill you makes you stronger” because I have learned patience (a quality I most certainly did not possess and have had to learn!), generosity of spirit and so many other great things out of the experience of having a child with special needs.

      What was your childhood mantra

      My life in the sunshine.

      What’s your pre-flight ritual
      Giant cashmere wrap, bottle of water, Erik Satie

      What’s your ideal summer vacation spot

      What is personal space flight worth to you
      Love the concept, but wouldn’t die to try it

      Would you trust an autonomous car
      May be safer than some of the taxis I’ve taken

      Where would you rather be right now
      I’m quite happy where I am

      How did you first hear about Blender
      Through “All Good Work’s” social impact program for non-profits

      What drew you to Blender
      I was thrilled to be offered a residency as part of “All Good Work’s” outreach

      What made you ultimately decide to move your business to Blender
      A) Heavy subsidies, greatly appreciated
