I knew that I needed to move into an office, but I just did not know how I was going to make it happen. I knew that even if I had a small office in a location not considered prime, it would still be more money than I could afford. It goes beyond rent, because that is just one of the factors. Others include at least one other person because I would not be able to handle walk in customers on my own if I was already with another one. That is when someone suggested a Singapore virtual office to me, because it would give me the independence that I really needed to have to run my own office.

I looked at the website that he referred me to, and it was the first time I had read about virtual offices in so much detail. I had heard of them before, of course, but I still didn’t know what they were until I had read the information on this site. In addition to educating myself on what a virtual office is, I also realized that it was the answer to my problems.

I would not need to budget in the other factors for an office because everything is included in this price, even parking! Instead of hiring a receptionist to help me, there is a receptionist that services all of the virtual offices in her area. I would not have to make a client wait while I greeted another one, which was one of my main concerns because it just seems unprofessional in my eyes. I also would not have to worry about utilities, parking fees, maintenance costs, insurance or a number of other things that office dwellers face on a regular basis. This is exactly what I needed to go to the next step in my career!

I have been doing without any sort cable TV or anything like that since I moved in to the place I am living now. It was a necessary decision. You just are not required to have a pay TV service, although like most people I enjoy having it when I want. Of course I had to have the Internet and I paid for that, even though I settled for a thirty dollar per month wireless internet provider. At any rate now I have the money for something inexpensive and I have started looking for more information here about the subject of satellite TV packages. Obviously I have decided that the local cable company just charges too much money and it certainly appears that in my price range the best deal is going to be on a satellite system. I have some thought of doing something a bit on the clever side. Of course my brother in law is the one who was telling me we could do this.

He already has a satellite system and he is paying about thirty five dollars a month for a relatively decent package of programming. He has a good package, but not anything like the best variety that you can get. He has two of the decoder boxes, one for his den and another for his living room. I think he has their version of the DVR as well. The extra box costs him five dollars a month more. So he could get two more boxes for 10 dollars more a month. Of course the idea is that you can get another dish and put it on the roof of my house. The bill would go up to 45 dollars a month and maybe you add a couple of channels, then the two of us split the costs.

Of course Jackie and I are both working for the local government up here now. I am with the tax department for Logan county and she is with the local school system. So we are living up here in this part of the Arkansas River Valley. You can do all sorts of cool outdoor stuff up here and we like that a lot. Of course we have found us a little place out in the woods with about two and a half acres of land. We got a deal on DSL for Booneville and a direct TV satellite system, although it does not get much more than a minimum number of channels. We just got the cheapest deal on TV and internet that we could find. It sort of put a bit of a strain on us to come up with the down payment on this place and right now we are working to build up something in reserve. Both of us like to have money set aside in case there is a need for it.

At any rate we are living a real country lifestyle. I even bought a nanny goat for the goat milk and these three laying hens. There was a little hen house on the place when we got it and we figured there was not much wrong with fresh eggs. Of course Jackie knows her way around chickens because her family had a farm and so she is the one who is in charge of them. I do not think they would listen to me, but of course they seem to understand who has the chicken feed very well. I do not think they are all that smart really, but Jackie has been trying to convince me that she is going to teach them to count to ten.
