ODOCO – Online Community for Finding Co-Working Spaces

Today, finding a space in Bombay for your business is not easy. If it is easy, then it is costly. If it is not costly, then it’s far from the city. Your requirements don’t match mostly when it comes to finding an office space. There was a need for office spaces that could be rented out as it’s not easy to find such owners yourself and vice versa for the tenants. Hence brokers were contacted and the prices kept increasing. People needed a medium to find out such spaces that are vacant and could be rented immediately. Hence ODOCO came into the picture.

Who is ODOCO?

Odoco, an online community began in April 2018 as a venture to bridge the gap between tenants and owners with regards to office spaces. Their aim is to be like the Air BNB of office spaces.

What does ODOCO do?

An owner with a vacant space can register online with Odoco by providing them with all the basic details, amenities and pricing. The information provided is then displayed online to all the users with the contact details of the owner. For the owner, the best part of our portal is that if any potential tenant views the property, the owner gets a notification. They can follow up with the tenant and discuss the deal.

Who can Register?

Any owner that has a vacant space or any owner having unutilized space in their office can rent it to a business that needs it. Hence the concept of co-working comes into place. Smaller spaces lesser than 60 seats are also listed here. Hence you will regularly find a list of shared spaces for those who need it. Odoco makes sure of finding spaces that have these amenities; WiFi, clean workspace, good lighting, something to drink and clean washrooms which is an ideal requirement for a working space.

Future Plans:

They currently have listed 200+ offices across 6 cities in India and list about 4 new offices every day. Per seat inventory now stands at 13,000. Odoco plans to list over 800+ offices across 9 cities in India with 50,000 seats by the end of 2018.  Their main intention is to maintain a platform with complete transparency where users can connect with owners and owners can connect with users.

In conclusion, if you ever have an issue with finding the perfect office space for your needs within your budget, log on to ODOCO web portal and find your space.

cannot do without these things in life

5 Things I Cannot Do Without

There are some things that are really important for us. I know for a fact that without my morning cup of tea, the day feels incomplete. Without hearing my partner’s voice, the afternoons and evenings don’t pass!

Like this, we all have certain things that we need no matter what time, place, or era we are living in. Hence I will list down some of the most important things that I just cannot do without. I’ll show you mine and you can show me yours!

Here’s my list of top 5 things I just cannot live without;

cannot do without books in life

1. Books:

You’re never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read to a child. – Dr. Seuss.

I cannot just live without em. I always have a book with me while traveling anywhere. It’s like therapy for the soul. Reading opens up horizons in your mind as no other thing can! Do you agree with me?

cannot do without internet in life

2. Internet:

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.  –Andrew Brown

Yes, I admit it. We cannot live without the World Wide Web. It has got us entangled to the hilt. I need my daily dose of notifications from my Facebook timeline, twitter feed, Instagram, a few news updates too, and yeah, WhatsApp also! Although I can resist these things for a few days altogether, I cannot do it for a longer period.

cannot do without smartphones in life

3. Smartphone:

The smartphones and the computer separates everybody, makes you think that you don’t need anybody else. – Bootsy Collins

Yes, I am my smartphone’s slave. I wake up and the first thing I have to see is my phone. Whether it’s the day or night, sunny or rainy, hot breeze, or super cold wind, I just need my phone! The plus point is that I get to post a lot on my blog through my phone. It’s quite convenient and effective.

Home is important and the best thing in life

4. My Home:

The ache for home lives in all of us, the safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned. – Maya Angelou

Home is where the heart is. The one place where we know we will be safe and sound. I agree that there is no better comfort than to just be at your home sweet home. You can go to Hawaii, grace the various treasured islands, live in castles and forts for a fortnight, but in the end, you’ll rest like a baby only when you’re home!

School friends are the best friends

5. My school friends:

It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them. – Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Yes, I know how this sounds but I’ve been in touch with 4 of my school friends and our friendship means a huge deal to me. It’s their sheer presence that is enough to drive out the stress I go through sometimes. The fun, the jokes, the moments; everything is like a prized possession of mine.

Till The Bubble Bursts

It’s basic human tendency that we can get the best out of us only when we lose something or come close to losing something.

What i’m trying to say is that we will not try to outperform our expectations, try being better than we were yesterday until something happens.
It’s like we cannot do something until a “catalyst” helps us concentrate.
Here’s an example:
A son/daughter never listened to their parents. They tried to get them on track, get better at studies, work better, get settled in life.
Then all of a sudden either of the parent or both fall unwell and there’s a high chance that they might die. 
The next thing you know is completely dramatic.
The child automatically starts prioritizing the future of him/her and the family.
Everything goes back on track.
I’m sure you can relate this to a few movies too, right?
So why do we need to wait till the bubble bursts?
Why wait till something changes your life?
Can’t you be the change?
God forbid if in the above example the parents died, and the children then did everything their folks wanted, is that a good thing?
Partly YES but partly NO also.
What’s the use if they cannot see what you’ve become. I agree they’ll be happy you now are successful, but what’s the use if they are not here to see it?
Instead, it would be awesome if they could see you rising, be successful, be happy.
Trust me, there are many who’d say, they wish they’re loved ones were there to witness their rise.
Don’t be one of them.
Get better than the best.
Keep your folks happy.
Do it when they’re still around.
Cos you’ll never know when the bubble bursts.

Have you come across such a situation anywhere?
If you could relate this to a movie/book/real life situation,
Do let me know.
Happy reading!
