Redefining Office Furniture Accessibility

As millennials are slowly saturating the work force, they are changing the landscape of what the office might look like. Instead of starting companies that quickly open big offices full of fancy furniture and big screens, thanks Silicon Valley, many of this next generation in the work force are seeing that brand new furniture in a big office is a significant investment that can potentially set back a growing business financially. So how have millennials redefined the work space? Co-working spaces and the re-usability office furniture.

What is a co-working space? Well some smart millennial came up with a solution to a problem. The problem, purchasing or paying rent on an office as a start up business is almost impossible. How do you make it cheaper? Instead of renting a whole office, you get to rent a small space in an office where other people can work as well. The environment is for working professionals who don’t find the value of a big office. As the world gets smaller and smaller with inter connectivity, people can work virtually anywhere that has an internet connection. Funny enough, many of these office spaces are filled with used office furniture which is a wonderful bridge to the second part of this entry.

New office furniture is expensive. Most of the time, as long as you don’t buy from a shady establishment, that furniture is built to last. Office furniture almost always outlasts the business that bought it. So where does it all go? Luckily, liquidation sales have become a thing. Through various office furniture companies, you can get access to incredible stocks of used office furniture that’s in fantastic shape. Whether you are looking for something for your home office, or you are a small operation moving into your first office, you should look into used office furniture in Orange County.  If you do a little research like we did, you’ll notice something.

Alternative Medicine That Works

If you’ve been a reader for a while you know the drill, but for those that are new or need a little refresher, here’s the deal: Each week I highlight an amazing local business that I think you should know about. I have some strict criteria that I stick to so that you can be assured that these businesses are legit. Every business I highlight has to show year-over-year growth, and they have to be doing things the right way-nothing shady here. They also need to have excellent reviews on Yelp as customer service is key. I only let my readers know about the absolute best businesses that this great county has to offer.

This week I want to highlight a place that excels in helping you to be as healthy as possible.

Gone are the days of only having one option for healthcare. The traditional doctor’s office, where you schedule an appointment, go and sit in the waiting room for an hour and then are finally seen by the doctor’s assistant, and prescribed a general drug to try and make you feel better. I’m ready for a new experience, and I think you are too.

I want to introduce you to SOHMA Integrative Health Center. They provide holistic health care that is focused on the patient, combining Western and Eastern medical care while avoiding surgery and drugs. Often times a healthier diet, therapeutic massage, and non-invasive therapies like chiropractic care and Tai Chi can cure the aches and pains you are having.

I came across SOHMA because I was having some back issues and was looking for a chiropractor in Long Beach. You know you’re getting older when your back tightens up as you are getting out of bed in the morning! I went on Yelp and came across these guys. They have fantastic reviews!

I decided that I would give them a try and I was not disappointed. I showed up and was greeted by a friendly staff. They were ready right away for me. I didn’t even get a chance to sit down in the waiting room before they called me back. Daniel did fantastic work on my back; the next morning I woke up and felt like a new man. He also educated me on the different services SOHMA offers and mentioned that I might want to look into acupuncture.

Now, I’m typically not into Eastern medicine, but when I got home I decided I might give it a try. My back hadn’t felt so good in a long time, I thought I would at least try was Daniel suggested. I pulled out my computer and searched for acupuncture in Long Beach. Well, low and behold guess what came up. It was SOHMA’s Yelp page again. I gave Daniel a call back and told him I’d like to give acupuncture a shot. I scheduled another appointment and had a second wonderful experience. I was greeted again by the same friendly staff, they even remembered my name! I had another short wait time and I was pleasantly surprised by the acupuncture treatment. Truthfully I was a little nervous going into it, but the staff explained everything so clearly that I felt comfortable trying something so different for me.

Well, it’s safe to say that I give SOHMA Integrative Health Center a glowing review. They had amazing service and are one of my new favorite growing businesses in Orange County.

A Growing Exterminator Fighting the Growing Swarm

We here in Southern California have all heard of them before. The big bad termite. They are potentially around every corner, behind every wall, and or under your house. Like earthquakes, many Californians have come to accept the presence of these little critters as something you have to deal with while living here. Unfortunately, many people’s level of acceptance leads them down a path of neglect and general disregard for the ramifications of letting a possible termite infestation go untreated. Termites can swarm quickly and devour much of the infrastructure of your house long before you even consider picking up the phone and calling. Did you know that there are actually 3 kinds of termites in California? Check this info our from pestboard.ca.gov:

“Sometimes there will be no sign the home
is infested. Termite infestations can go
undetected for years, hidden behind walls,
floor coverings or insulation. Termite feeding
and damage can even progress undetected
in wood that is exposed because the outer
surface is usually left intact.
If you think you have termites, usually it
is advisable to hire a professional pest
control company to carry out the inspection
and control program. Before making an
appointment, make sure the company is
registered and in good standing by
calling the Structural Pest Control Board.”

Luckily for the people reading this post, we only report on businesses in good standing with the respective agencies in their fields. This business is located in Garden Grove but serves all of Orange County. They are a fast growing business because they decided to take a different approach to the termite extermination business.

Divorce is Common – This Business Is Making It Easier To Deal With

The rate of divorce just keeps climbing and no one seems to have remedy to slow it down, or for how to make divorce less catastrophic. When a couple gets divorced, it is the splitting of assets, children, money, and general emotional connections that have been established over years. It makes sense that the default outcome is some explosion of all things in all directions when one or both people in a marriage file for divorce. You would think they would make it as easy as splitting everything down the middle so that there can’t be any arguing or debate over who gets what. I suppose you can’t actually split children so that debate would always be there but luckily children can split their time so long as the each parent is okay with sharing. Unfortunately for most people, divorce is a lot messier than splitting things down the middle. With emotions fractured and tensions high, a lot of soon to split couples are out to get each other to make them pay for the hardship they are enduring. This has inevitably led to attorneys becoming essential pieces to a divorce. Attorneys can be very expensive and there is typically an attorney for each person! Divorce attorneys can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars just to ensure that each person gets what they are owed. Why? Why have we continued to pay these astronomical fees especially in a place like Southern California where divorce rates are extremely high compared to the rest of the US? One can only assume the reason these expensive divorce attorneys are still being used is because its the only way to protect yourself from your spouse and to make sure you get what you want out of the divorce. Fortunately, someone has finally taken an idea and made it into an extremely lucrative business that helps couples dealing with divorce get through the process easier, cheaper, and generally happier.
