I was wandering around the office, as I tend to do when I need to look busy but need a break, and I noticed that we have a lot of empty cubicles around. There are several reasons for this such as we have had empty cubicles from the time we moved into this building and that whole “purge” we had a few months back when the dead weight was cut in hope of keeping our company afloat (it seems to be working).
But in an effort to make even more money for the company I think we need to start renting these empty cubicles out.

…for an 8x8 cubicle would be much less than an entire office. Imagine all those small business people that would want a professional environment to work in at a fraction of the cost. I figure for their rent they would get their very own cubicle with plenty of storage, ergonomic orange desk chair, access to our lunch room with tea and coffee, and the ability to use our printers/scanners/copiers/etc.
I am sure there would be a HUGE market for this. I’m going to draft my proposal right now and send it to the president of the company. I’ll keep you posted.
