The way we think about offices isn’t how it used to be before.
Following the pandemic, the culture of virtual offices has blown up, and lots of businesses have freed employees from the shackles of a fixed desk.
After all, if the majority of work in your business is done via laptop or phone, there’s no reason you can’t ditch the traditional office and embrace a remote-first work style.
The concept of virtual offices makes it possible to work from the comfort of your home (or anywhere in the world) while having a permanent business address and professional presence.
It’s a pretty sweet gig, especially for individuals with a professional background who want a more flexible and affordable alternative to physical offices.
This was the case for Tony Harrington who turned to B2B HQ when looking for a location to hold client meetings and increase business credibility while cutting overhead costs.
If you’ve heard the term virtual office, but aren’t quite sure how it can help your business grow and thrive, then this blog is exactly what you’ve been searching for.
Read on and see how Tony has used B2B HQ’s virtual offices to grow a successful business so you can get clued up on one of the latest business trends in Australia.
Tradies Well Being with Tony Harrington: a Real-Life Example of How Aussie Businesses Can Succeed with a Virtual Office
You might think that Tony has been in business his whole life, but that is not the case.
In fact, Tony spent decades as a tradie before experiencing financial hardship.
“I’d never been taught or educated about money. I used to blow my money, I used to gamble it, I used to drink it, I used to have a really good time,” Tony explained for A Current Affair.
“Then I got to the point where I thought I can’t keep living like this because I’ve seen too many other workers retire broke after working 47 years of their lives.”
After teaching himself about finances, Tony is now on a mission to help other tradies secure their financial future.
Tony has managed to transform himself from a broke construction worker into a successful property investor and he’s currently committed to educating other tradies on finances.
So far, Tony and the team at Tradies Well Being have helped more than three thousand tradies invest some of their hard-earned money into properties that gained capital appreciation.
He built an incredibly successful business that enabled him to escape the rat race and live a life most people are afraid to pursue.
Plus, he’s the author of 3 books called “You Can Do Anything”, “Don’t Blow Your Dough”, and “Tradies Financial Freedom Blueprint”.
While you might think that Tony is currently spending thousands of dollars on expensive office space to maintain a positive perception of his business, the exact opposite is true.
He is actually running his business with a B2B HQ virtual office, which is a stylish, professional, and much more affordable alternative to traditional offices.
Tony is living proof that growing a successful business does not require you to splurge on permanent office space or get trapped into long-term commercial lease.
As a B2B HQ client, Tony has access to professional, fully equipped office space to hold his meetings, but without paying unwarranted overheads.
In fact, lots of tradies who have been through Tony’s School of Wealth have stepped into B2B HQ’s offices in order to learn how to take control of their finances and double their retirement wealth.
B2B HQ provides Tony and the team at Tradies Well Being with all the perks of a traditional office – business address, landline number, private mailbox, and meeting rooms, just to name a few – without the business leasing or buying physical office space.
The purpose of this is to build up a strong corporate identity and establish your business in a prestigious location while avoiding the hefty price tag and ongoing costs.
Plus, we’re more than happy to tailor our services to your business needs so you can offer a more bespoke experience to clients.
The best part about this is that B2B HQ allows Tony to combine the functionality of a traditional office with the real freedom of location independence.
With a virtual office, individuals with a professional background like Tony can establish a successful business and meet clients’ expectations while embracing flexible work and leaving more money to invest in growing the business.
We are proud to call Tony our client and are honoured to assist him and the team at Tradies Well Being with their business presence in one of Melbourne’s most exclusive and affluent suburbs.
