How to Save Thousands of Dollars With Just One Phone Call... And it's FREE

10 replies
Hello Warriors,

Recently I noticed a forum post about a senior warrior who finally moved
into his 1st office and all the benefits it was providing him... especially on
the productivity side.

So I thought I'd share my story on how to save thousands of dollars (or
more) if you're thinking about moving out one of these days... (food for
thought, anyways)

I did it, all it takes is a telephone call and you will literally save yourself thousands...

Here goes...

About a year ago, I was looking for office space... You know, the get out
of the house kind, where I could really get focused on doing my thing...

And so I found quite a nice hotel in my area and telephoned the general
manager about renting a guest room to use as an office on a month to
month basis. I said that I wasn't sure how long I'd need the room because
I travelled a lot.

When we talked he seemed to like my idea and asked me to come back
the following day to discuss it in more detail. (BTW he was the owner too).

It was wierd, when I arrived he basically welcomed me right to the best
ground floor room in the place... Now who was selling who...

Anyways, I asked that they remove the bed and tv and that's was about
it. They even gave me a room that had 24/7 street access away from the lobby.

His only stipulation was for me to pay a month in advance and that he'd
need the room back in high season, which was about 6 months away... Perfect.

They also gave me full access to the gym, the pool, weekly maid service,
of course I could take showers in my room, and if I wanted to have a
business meeting in the hotel business center that was cool too. (all included)

Full wireless internet access at no extra charge was the best cost-saving bonus.

I brought in a printer, my laptop, a coffee machine and yes they already
had a desk and executive chair too. Sofa... and just about everything
else... the pop-machine was just around the corner...

$400 cash or $500 with an invoice... The choice was mine...

It didn't take me long to wip out my wallet... So, if you're thinking of
office space, don't want a lease, want everything a hotel has and you live
in a part of town with more rooms than guests to fill them...

Ask and you shall receive.

Pretty 'suite' deal.

Rob
P.S. If you've got any similar stories it would be great to hear what you found.

    That's really clever, Rob!

    There are also short-term shared office space leasing companies in many places as well. Usually more money than your hotel, but most come with things like a shared meeting room, receptionist, telephone answering service, etc.

    I used this approach many times back in the 90's. Now, like many others, I work from home.

    Wow thats a great idea Rob. I never though of that. I know for a fact that I need to look for an office space outside of my house because its too distracting at home. I need it to be more focused and meet clients.

    Simply awesome approach! I have own office but i think i need to get 2nd where i am alone with my whiteboard for idea generation phase. It is hard to do any creative work with other guys in the office !

    It is a great idea,

    being inside the house, is not really much helpful. You get distracted, and everyone assumption, we can disturb him, after all he is doing nothing

    I will go ahead and try get something like that. Even online business, got to move out of home one day

    Thanks for the idea.

    Many IMers move to an office when their business generates serious income. It doubles your productivity. My friend used to track the number of hours he worked per week and it doubled when he moved to the office.

    Your idea of renting a hotel room is an excellent idea.

    That's pretty clever indeed... My idea is to rent an apartment. A nice corner suite and turn the bedrooms into different spaces. 1 can be for your video production area and the other can be your office.

    I like the idea of having a living room to unwind and ponder on different ideas. Also, having a kitchen is an added bonus. The apartment complex I'm looking into has a full size gym and pool as well. Not to mention underground parking

    However the apartment costs more than $400 a month... but on the upside I can stay as long as I want and the internet is free.
