podcast interview with Ralph Gregory, founder of Intelligent office | Small Business Naked
In the early 1990′s Ralph became a father, a little later in life than most, and naturally, he wanted to spend less time at the office and more time at home. At the time, Ralph was a venture capitalist and most of his work fell into the category of communications – talking on the phone, writing letters, sending e-mails and faxes – none of which required beginning an office. As Ralph used his office less and less, he began to formulate this new business concept that would allow him to work from home while still tapping into services – such as receptionists and meeting space – that would present a professional image. The virtual office concept was born.
This week, we get to talk with a veteran entrepreneur that has built several companies, been successful in most, and has a unique perspective, that us young kids (Johnny and I), can learn from. He walked us down the journey from his first failed business attempt, to his current business triumph. If you love business, you will want to hear this story.
