Shared Office Spaces; Social, Savvy, Centered

August 17th, 2016

 

Shared work spaces are becoming recognized for their increased productivity as the workers performing there are getting work done at a higher level than freelancers working from home or workers in the typical office setting. One thing to be gleaned from the shared work space is that the go getter type personalities are all finding themselves gathering there. Freelancers who want a quiet space to get things done, and who want to feel like they are falling into more of an office routine gravitate to shared work spaces.

Shared work spaces do share similar qualities of certain offices. There are private rooms with desks, there are conference rooms, and there is of course coffee. What makes shared work spaces different is the set up and lay out of the shared work environment. There are long communal tables, communal desk areas, outdoor spaces for breaks and lounge areas for light discussion and socialization with other work space peers.

Workville New York shared office space a stunning shared work space that really puts a deluxe feel to the concept. The luxury building and it’s location in central Manhattan makes it an ideal location for startups and individuals in Manhattan who are looking for a social work space with like minded individuals. It is also a great spot for startups to rent a conference room for an important meeting right at the hub of everything.

Individuals and small companies as well as large can come to Workville and rent out whatever space fits their needs. Spaces can be rented hourly, weekly, monthly, whatever bets fits. There is even a “name your price” option offered at Workville which welcomes that entrepreneurial spirit. For a reasonable rate, a Manhattanite or anyone who is traveling through can join this social shared space and see if it puts some mojo in their work. Talent attracts talent and shared working spaces like Workville allow other ambitious people to find each other. Because it is not a traditional office, there is no forced socialization or office politics to navigate. Less this distraction, it is easier for everyone to get their work done and open up social communication at their convenience with whom they may feel compelled.

The Worth of Andy Wirth

August 3rd, 2016

Mr. Andy Wirth is worth much! I do not say this lightly. This active and very busy President, Chairman, and CEO is not quite like any other you may have met, seen, or heard of before. He truly is unique…..finding his place among the more rare cream of the crop, or tip of the top, in the game of the ski resort industry in particular. What do I mean?

Well, Mr. Andy Wirth is not only the past & current President and Chief Executive Officer of Squaw Valley Ski Resort in Olympic Valley, California. He has also just recently been appointed as chairman of the Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority Board….quite an additional and well notable achievement. Learn more about Andy Wirth: https://about.me/andywirth

Such levels of status do not merely come by themselves or appear in a person over night; they reveal true character and leadership quality, and are formed from much patience, perseverance, progression, and vision within any organization…..often times even beginning ‘from the bottom up’ with nothing but a small spark of hope and a prayer.

What else about this man makes him so great, you may be wondering? Well, let me tell you. Boy, am I glad you asked! Hold on to your seats, because you are in for a treat….and as I mentioned, you will not find another leader quite like this great role model. Of course, no two leaders are ever fully alike.

According to an online source (https://about.me/andywirth): “Andy Wirth is also a major contributor to environmental and community service organizations in the Lake Tahoe area, with a focus on improving the area in general for people of all ages.”

What a great purpose in life indeed…..to not only assist and empower one’s own organizational motives and causes, but to also help further surrounding benefits which out of the self less devotion of one’s heart! But wait; there is more!

Mr. Andy Wirth is also responsible for previously co founding what is known as the Wounded Warrior Support effort, which makes itself responsible for assisting returning Navy SEALS and their families in any way that it can. Talk about giving back to give back!

Integrity Breaches by Global Tel Link highlighted by Securus

August 3rd, 2016

The various wrongdoings by GTL will be highlighted by Securus, a leader in the provision of technology solutions used in civil and criminal justice for investigation, monitoring, corrections and public safety. Securus will highlight these breaches via press releases of a number of facts, articles and findings on the wrongdoings of GTL. I read that Securus will be reviewing a number of the systematic and potential breaches by GTL over the course of the next six months with an aim of shaming GTL to act with more integrity in future.

 

GTL, as I read from the article, was found to have programmed their clocks at the correctional institutions telephones and thereby added about 15 or 36 seconds to each call which was unlawful and unauthorized. The company also programmed the telephones it owns to rate the calls made using them at higher rates than the permitted ones under its tariffs and even the PSC rate caps. GTL also inflated the charges customers had to pay for their calls even after such calls had been rated. I also noticed that GTL had also billed a single call for more than just the required single time through double billing. In conclusion, I realized that GTL had overcharged the taxpayers of Louisiana by $1,243,000. The PSC Order detailing these malpractices was from way back in January 21, 1998 showing that GTL continued practicing their wrongdoings for all that time. The CEO Securus Technologies, Richard A. Smith, stated that customers in the industry expected companies to practice a higher integrity level when providing services to them.

Living A Rationed Life

June 17th, 2016

Venezuela recently drifted into a world that many residents didn’t expect to see. According to the Latino Show Magazine, courts are closed on most days of the week. Government offices are usually closed as well after officials declared a two-day work week for public employees. There is a lack of food, and the amount of energy available isn’t up to where it needs to be to sustain the number of people who live in the state. These are the new ways of life that residents face on a daily basis. They have to make a choice between food, medications and paying for the utilities in the home so that the family survives. In many areas, water and electricity are being rationed. People like Ms. Luque can only have a limited amount during the day, making it difficult to plan a lot of anything when it comes to watching television, cooking or taking part in normal life activities.

 

 

 

Brad Reifler’s Good Words for the 99%

June 16th, 2016

Brad Reifler wants people to save and make money. Through effective investment strategies, anyone can take what they have and turn it into more. Reifler does acknowledge that not everyone has access to the same investment opportunities. Under the law, certain investment vehicles are only open to the “top 1%” of the population. Accredited investors are those with $1 million in liquidity. Those who do not have such net worth are barred from dealing with certain hedge funds, oil and alternative energy investments, and more.

Options for the other 99% obviously do exist, but there are some limitations. Reifler provides some fine advice for those persons who are wondering how to get the most out of their investment plans.

About.me makes it pretty clear Brad Reifler does know what he is talking about. He founded Forefront Capital and currently serves as its CEO. In earlier stages of his life, he invested money in a college fund for his daughters. Things did not turn out so well leading him to change his attitude towards investing. Past events and life experiences have led Reifler to come up with new insight into how to advice the “average person” investor.

The advice Reifler suggests includes quite a bit of logical steps. Not putting all one’s money into the stock market, defining all objectives prior to investing, and only work with trustworthy professionals are among the tips.

Reifler specializes in helping non-accredited investors. Those investors are found in 99% of the population. Reifler wants them to see solid returns on their investments. His advice may help with that outcome.
