I have often been accused of wanting my cake and eating it too. I actually agree with that assessment, and I think that most others are the same way, even if they won’t admit it. A good example of this is when I was looking for an office in Singapore. I didn’t want the hassle of having to maintain one on my own though, and that is why I started looking for a service office instead. It truly is the best of both worlds for someone in my position. I needed office space, but I did not need all of the hassles that come along with having one.
A serviced office is the perfect answer for me. It means I get to have prime office space that is convenient for both my clients as well as myself. When they come in, they see a really nice office that has a receptionist, nice furniture, and a great location. What I see is having all the perks without having the hassle that is associated with them. I pay one price and get everything that other offices have. I have a secretary when I need one, a receptionist to greet my clients, and so much more.
I don’t even have to supply the furniture. Instead, everything I need is already there. The furniture, the staff, and so much more. If a client calls after hours, I even have an answering service that is included in the cost of my lease. When you get all of these advantages without all of the work or the cost of securing them for yourself, why wouldn’t a person be interested in doing it this way? It is the best of both worlds to me, and it is the only way that I will have an office from now on.Continue reading →
