21380069So, on Monday of this week, the 141st annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show was held in Madison Square Garden.  And the pictures and videos that came out of it offered a much needed respite from political/economical/civil issues. One of my favorite parts of the dog show is the agility competition, and Mia the beagle was HILARIOUS.

I don’t know about you, but I need more hilarious dog videos in my life, especially after a long week in the office, so here are five funny dog videos, starting with Mia.

  1. Watch Westminster Dog Show Contestant Get Distracted During Agility Competition
  2. Mastiff Competing At Dog Agility
  3. Hilarious Golden Retriever Really Wants To Race But.. First Things First
  4. Dogs Discovering Snow
  5. Dog Tries Her New Shoes For First Time

Friday Five – Monday Edition: The Future of CoWorking and Flexible Office Space

Welcome to the Friday Five blog post!  Which I am posting on Monday, because I didn’t have time to finish it Friday. 🙂  Each week I will choose one topic based on something I either heard or saw that interested me during the week and link to five articles related to that topic.  I hope you find them interesting as well!

Private Offices, Shared Offices, and Coworking Workspaces Available

Last week, I read an article on the LiquidSpace blog about the growth of the flexible office space market and where it is headed in the next few years.  Perimeter Park has offered this type of service to businesses and entrepreneurs since we opened in 1984.  It has been called many things over the years – executive suites, executive office space, shared office space, workspace-on-demand, coworking – but no matter what the current terminology is, it all boils down to turn-key professional office space at an affordable price where a person can focus on their business while someone else takes care of all the other little things that go into running an office.

When you have an office at Perimeter Park, you just work.  We deal with maintenance, cleaning service, Comcast (yes, we even do THAT for you), the telephone company, A/C vendors – even the mailman and delivery people.  You never have to stop your business to deal with any of those things.

After working here for 15 years, I don’t know why anyone with a small business would want to – or could afford to – handle those things on their own instead of working 100% on building and growing their business.

The old saying is that “you get what you pay for”, but that isn’t true at Perimeter Park.  Here you get a fully furnished office, telephone service, internet service, cleaning, utilities, break room, receptionist, waiting area, and an on-site staff.  All starting at under $600 per month for a single person private office – less for coworking and virtual office options.

Here are some articles on why this type of office set-up is great for businesses.  Have a look, then give us a call at 615-781-4200 to tour our office space in Nashville and see what we can do for your business.

This week, a post in my Facebook feed about a possible new lead in the fascinating FBI case of the disappearance of hijacker D.B. Cooper caught my eye.  The folklore and mystery surrounding this case has interested me since I first heard about it in middle school.  It’s been mentioned in multiple movies and television shows, specifically FBI dramas and police procedurals.   This week’s Friday Five list starts with the article that caught my eye, then goes on to include other thoughts and information about the mystery.
