Advantages of Utilizing Shared Office Space: Comparing Manhattan Offices For Rent

The practice of different companies pooling their resources and sharing the same office space is growing in popularity in many big cities around the world. It has become common for many startups to used a shared office as their first base of operations until they can afford to move into a place of their own. This would have been unheard of several decades ago. Companies would have been very nervous about sharing office space for confidentiality reasons. However, times have definitely changed. Companies are now very eager to enter into an agreement to share their office space because of the advantages it presents to them. Here are a few of those advantages.

1. New companies can save money and avoid spending much of their budget on expensive office space.

As you might expect, this is the primary reason why most companies that are working in a shared office environment choose to go this route. Money is usually very hard to come by in the early days of startup companies. This is when these companies are trying to attract customers and generate a steady source of income. Therefore, paying only half the rent of a nice office space is a substantial savings that may give the company more time to generate the sales that will keep it afloat. The money that is saved could literally be the difference between the company succeeding or going out of business.

2. Companies that use shared office space can afford better offices than they otherwise could on their own.

Some companies require an office that is a certain size in order to fit all of the equipment they need to perform their jobs. Renting an office that is the size they require can often be cost prohibitive if they are doing it alone. However, bringing another company into the equation changes the financial situation dramatically.

Workville is a company that has established itself as one of the premiere suppliers of New York offices for rent. They have built up a successful business by offering their clients shared office spaces in a variety of sizes that are ready for them to move into immediately. Internet service is also provided along with several copiers. Workville cleans their offices daily.

Bernardo Chua’s Success With Organo Gold

Organo Gold is a very large and successful company, and it continues to grow. This company was started by a man named Bernardo Chua. CrunchBase reveals Chua has successfully run a number of different business. Originally, he was from the Philippines. However, he moved to the United States for business reasons. While in the United States, he has worked with two companies that sell coffee. For the first, he worked as a manager for the US division of a company, called Gano Excel. Then, he founded his own company, called Organo Gold.

Both of these companies made a special type of coffee. The coffees and teas sold by these companies contain a medicinal mushroom, called Ganoderma lucidum. Ganoderma lucidum has a lot of healing properties that have been used for many thousands of years. It has shown effectiveness with helping a number of different bodily systems. Ganoderma lucidum has benefits throughout all areas of the body, and it can benefit the health of anyone. In addition to having a lot of health benefits, the products sold by Organo Gold are quite tasty. In fact, they have been highly rated in terms of taste.

The products from Organo Gold have been sold in a variety of different countries. Now, they are being sold in a new country. The products of Organo Gold are now being sold in Turkey, which has a long history with fine coffees. In fact, the world’s first coffee house was in Turkey, several centuries ago. The fact that Organo Gold’s products are being sold there and are popular there is a testament to the quality of the coffee made by the company.

Bernardo Chua was not originally in the coffee business. Instead, he got his start with multi level marketing. When he succeeded in this area, he began to move on to the coffee business. He began working for Gano Excel in the Philippines. Then, Gano Excel began to expand. Gano Excel ultimately transferred him to the United States, and he managed the division of their company located there.

Organo Gold can be expected to continue to become more successful over the years. It is expected that the company will be quite successful in Turkey. This will have an effect on the entire business, making it more successful. In the future, it is likely that their products will be sold in an even broader area. They are already sold in numerous countries, throughout the world.  Read more about Bernardo on Wikipedia.

Kyle Bass: What Bad Decision Will We Read About Next?

Kyle Bass was the founder of Hayman Capital Management, LP. He created the company in 2006 to start a hedge fund. Initially he became very wealthy and successful by predicting the 2008 subprime mortgage crisis. Bass researched and invested in unstable loans that were most likely to default. His prediction came true, and while homeowners were being foreclosed on, Bass was making half a billion dollars.

However this apparently was where his success ended. Since this time Bass has made multiple bad business decisions and questionable alliances. A recent article on usefulstooges.com talked about Bass’s partnership with Argentina president, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner. In a move that was wildly unpopular with other investors, Bass supported her economic strategies which have since driven Argentina into poverty. He has been her supporter and sung her praises as she has passed irresponsible economic policies and ripped off her own people. When Kirchner defaulted for a second time on her country’s loans, Bass stated that he thought it was “immoral” that the creditors wanted to be paid back.

This was not the end of Kyle Bass’s questionable practices. He defended General Motors when they were experiencing problems with faulty airbags not deploying in crashes. Instead of investigating why the car company had not addressed the problem, Bass went on television and blamed the victims of the crashes. He stated that they must have been irresponsible and intoxicated.

Kyle Bass’s most recent ventures have included dabbling in the pharmaceutical industry. His new practices involved short selling pharmaceutical company stocks and then filing a challenge for one or more of their patents. This move caused the company’s stocks to go down. Bass would then profit from his own stocks. Bass set up an organization called the Coalition for Affordable Drugs just for this purpose. Bass maintained that he was looking out for the good of the people. By breaking the patents that the companies had, medication prices would be driven down. The public was able to see right through this excuse, and later Bass did admit that he was in it just for the profit. Bass’s logic was that the pharmaceutical companies were likewise in business for profit, and this made his practices acceptable. In the meantime, innocent people who depended on those medications were not able to get their prescriptions filled.

After his first lucky break, Kyle Bass has made one poor decision after another. It does leave a person to wonder where his name will turn up next in the media, and what his next scam will be.
