Working from a Makeshift Office

In fact we just rented some space above a little grocery shop in a densely crowded neighborhood. We do not have much office equipment, but there is not really a big need for it just yet. Right now we are looking at places that provide company secretarial services in Singapore, because what we really need is a receptionist to answer the phones for us. There are four of us working out of this place and none of us are going to be anchored in a desk chair eight hours a day. We all are moving around, in fact my schedule is going to have me in Vietnam, Malaysia and Manila over the next month. This about making sales and making deals, not shuffling paper. You go out and talk to clients and try to convince them to sign on the dotted line.

We all are moving around, in fact my schedule is going to have me in Vietnam, Malaysia and Manila over the next month. This about making sales and making deals, not shuffling paper. You go out and talk to clients and try to convince them to sign on the dotted line. Of course the real trick is to understand the client and know how to make a deal where everyone gets more or less what they want.

We are not really going to stay in this place for very long, but office space is incredibly expensive here and Jack seems to have picked this place because it is in walking distance of the apartment where he is staying. Of course we are sort of taking bets on how long it will be before he gets kicked out by his girlfriend. The two of them are always fighting and sometimes if we do not know where he is the guys will make jokes about where she hid the body. It really does seem that dramatic at times and it has to go bad for one or both of them or else it will come to violence. At any rate the location is not very bad for me either, so I do not mind.
