Many people are under the assumption that only rich people run the world. What many people forget or aren’t aware of is that most businesses started with very little. Unless they were a trust fund baby, most people must work hard for what they achieve. For many, expansion is the key, but just making the day to day can be overwhelming.

These days, it seems like in order to maintain a strong income, you either have to have some of that left over investment banking money or be a drug dealer. The sticker shock from the cost of commercial rent alone in a place like Manhattan can cause a stroke. Never mind the business services they also need to run the operation. How can honest business people get a break?

For starters, small businesses can consider a virtual office. A cheap place in Midtown will set a business back by around $1,300 a month for basically, a closet - and not even a large one! And that’s without any services! A virtual office from Davinci with all the amenities only costs around $50 bucks a month.

Whether we like it or not, illusion is a part of the reality of success. While I am certainly not advocating (ahem) being untruthful, there is no harm in looking like you belong on the big playground.

For some people, success means having fancy smartphones and swimming pools. But it takes good wits and good business cents (pun intended) to really achieve business goals.

Just because there are usually obstacles to overcome in order to succeed does not mean they are necessary in order to get ahead. Those who work smarter rather than harder are realizing that in order to get more you have to look like you have more. Kind of like being worthy of the success you seek. Having a business support system in one of the most influential areas of the world used to be no small feat. With virtual office services in Manhattan, even the sky itself is not a limit!
