The end and my new beginning by Golden Square


Only I can change my life, no one can do it for me – Carol Burnett
This statement is 100% correct with a small exception. Though it is me who chooses to travel the path of life, it is destiny that shows me the right direction at the right time.
It was 10:22 AM on a Wednesday Morning; I was in my Golden Square office, waiting to attend an important meeting in the conference room. I heard a knock on the door; ‘Sir would you like some coffee?’ said Shwetha, the office assist with a broad cheerful smile on her face. I remember the first day I met her at Golden Square; it was the same smile that cheered up my mornings during the unforgettable struggle in my life. By now she knew exactly what I would prefer for a morning dose. ‘Yes please, I would like a cup of coffee now’. Looking at the four walls and these valuable files on my table, I slowly slipped down my memory lane from where I started this enthralling journey. I met Somshekar at the Golden Square premises and since then we began to share a great bond. He insisted that I visit the Golden Square Business Centre every week and constantly motivated me in my gloomy days. It was the beginning of 2016 and I was not what I am today. I was a struggling middle-class Insurance policy agent carrying the burden of my family.
It was those days where life appeared to be nothing less than the war fought between faith and death. I was choked by my financials and the merciless competition in the industry. Eventually, it also took over my family space while I was trying to keep up with the rest. I stood helpless and stranded and that is when my ray of hope, the light to my unseen quest was shown by Somshekar.
It was among those meaningful conversations when Somshekar introduced me to his Golden Square family and some BNI members. I began to get fascinated by seeing these top-notch professionals belonging to different industries communicating and collaborating with each other. I took active participation in every meet possible and began networking with these experts. I seized every opportunity I got from them; I could see my ticket to the silver linings and my life evolving. This was a time when I quickly started my water purification business while still working as an insurance policy agent.
It was December 2016, almost 8-9 months with Golden Square, but honestly, I felt like it was an eternity with them. This is when I got my first business through my BNI contacts; this is when the dark clouds in my sky began to clear. After this transformation in my life, I began to understand the depth of even the smallest principles in life, as simple as a second chance that can change the entire script of your life forever. There was no looking back. Today, I am here at my Virtual Office space in Golden Square Business Centre along with their unmatched services. I enjoy my work here, when Golden Square mentioned, ‘Joy at Work’ I wondered what it was…but now I definitely know what they mean! So far so good, it has been a great journey with Golden Square. I get all the necessary services right from conference rooms to personalized reception services, completely hassle free
I highly recommend Golden Square to every single person who is struggling to make a difference in their life, this is not just a place of business, it is where stories evolve into history and every small dreamer evolves into a legend.
Golden Square is not just a workplace to me; it is my temple - anonymous

Back to Office, Work from Home or Hybrid- What's Working?

What’s Next for the Workspace? Back to the office, work from home or Hybrid- What's Working? - By Balaji Pasumarthy Work From Home to Hybrid Office The Pandemic has forced all of us to take a fresh look at where we work . By default, work mostly happened in the office. Now that more than a year has passed, forcing most of us to work from home, it's time to take stock for the future and ask the question, “Which is the more effective work space?'' Dropbox, in an internal survey found that nearly 90% of the workforce are more focused at home and just as engaged as before (in the office), and do not want to go back to a rigid 5-day office workweek. At the same time, in the blog they share, “workers also say company culture suffers from no in-person interaction, risk of miscommunication is higher, and it’s harder to start new projects with multiple collaborators. There are many things people miss about the office.” Apple has always been a proponent of working from th

3 Ways in Which Co-working Enhances Productivity

Work is worship is what we’ve all grown up listening to, and by this very definition it is an exercise that is meditative, absorbing and indulgent. The purpose of work as defined by us has undergone a significant shift through the years. What began as a single-minded practical means to earn a livelihood, then became one of engagement and collaboration with fellow workers. The definition of work today isn’t just about earning for the self, but also ensuring that we are happy doing what we do. Being productive is therefore about getting the maximum done out of the few hours we put into work everyday. Different people work in different spaces and there are varying factors that affect productivity. While some work all by themselves and love their flexible timings, others work with organisations that focus on specific tasks and goals. Co-working falls midway between these two extremes. It allows professionals to go about their own tasks but also provides the opportunity to collaborat
