Irving is Known for Diversity

Come to Irving, and you’ll be setting foot in one of the most diverse cities anywhere.

In fact, in a 2012 study done by the real estate website Trulia-dot-com, it found that the 75038 ZIP Code is the single most diverse ZIP Code in the entire nation, with nearly equal percentages of white, black, Hispanic and Asian residents.

Irving is also home to a very vibrant Indian community.

Every Sunday, Hindus from Irving and the surrounding communities come to the BAPS Mandir, just off the Bush Turnpike.

Deepen Patel is a volunteer at the temple. He and his family moved to Irving from India, and he says the large Indian community has been very beneficial.

“You’re drawn to what is comfortable to you,” Patel says. “And when you see a commmunity that is so vibrant and so diverse, then it’s very easy to be a part of that community.

That sentiment is shared by Tushar Solanki. After growing up near Plano, he lived in several cities in the U.S., including Denver, Boston and New York, before he and his wife decided to settle in Irving.

“We wanted to come near a facility like this BAPS Swaminarayan Mandir, where our kids could grow up and have values and involve culture in their lives and stuff,” says Solanki.

Let Technology Do The Work For You

An extra pair of hands can make a huge difference especially when it means meeting a deadline. Hiring a virtual assistant is an economical and practical way to ensure that you save time. Virtual assistants can aid your small business in numerous ways. For example, they can answer or make calls for you, schedule appointments, make or take orders, place cold calls, work on sales for you or follow up on sales leads, coordinate mailings and media campaigns plus much more. Additionally, if you hire them from a company like Intelligent Office, because they are not a full time employee you will not need to waste time recruiting them, putting them on the payroll or training them.

Irving Ranked In The Top for Hispanic Entrepreneurs

Irving ranked in the top 30 U.S. cities for hispanic entrepreneurs, according to a new study by WalletHub.

The study examined the 150 most populated cities in the country and weighed factors like highest median annual income for Hispanics and share of hispanic owned businesses to come up with the list.

Before the metrics were calculated, WalletHub suspected the areas with the highest Hispanic populations numbers would do the best, according to WalletHub analyst Jill Gonzalez. For the most part, that prediction held true. Texas and Florida fared well, while New England and the eastern Midwest fared poorly.

Other rankings for cities in North Texas were, No. 35 Fort Worth, No. 37 Dallas and No. 44 Arlington.

So how can cities improve the environment for Hispanic and minority entrepreneurs?

Jill Gonzalez, WalletHub analyst:“When we’re looking at entrepreneurship in general, corporate taxes always come into play to make it a more business friendly environment for anyone. In terms of Hispanic entrepreneurs, getting some incubators started that specifically deal with hispanic entrepreneurs that help them connect with resources across the country, but of course within their city first, would definitely be helpful.”

Highest Paying Jobs Are Growing Fastest In Irving

As the economy grows and businesses relocate to the metroplex, job growth continues to outpace national averages.

According to data from Moody’s Analytics that JLL analyzed, job growth in 2015 for Dallas, Plano and Irving bucked national trends of growth only within low paying jobs.

In fact, Dallas saw the most job growth in higher paying jobs. That data compared with data for the U.S. South shows the difference between Dallas and the rest of the region.

“You need technical workers in the mid-to-high levels, you need construction workers in the mid levels and you need service workers in the low areas,” said Walter Bialas, JLL vice president and director of Market Research. “Because our economy is growing across the board in a lot of different areas, we’re seeing — unlike some other places in the country — much higher growth in the better wages.”

In total numbers, the Dallas-Fort Worth area has added 590,000 jobs since 2010 and 117,000 during the last 12 months.

4 REASONS DALLAS IS GOING TO BE THE MARKET TO BEAT IN 2016

With low cost of living, taxes and regulations, Texas has “worked hard to cultivate its reputation as a haven for entrepreneurs,” Matt says. This is why dozens of corporations are relocating to the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex and building larger campuses.  More than 15% of the companies relocating to North Dallas have come from California, including Toyota and Kubota. This mass exodus is due to California’s challenging business climate, and its dense cities and high land costs create “significant impediments to building a 2M SF campus like the one that Toyota is building in West Plano.” With all these market newcomers, Dallas-Fort Worth has not only received a huge population boost, but also a more diverse economy.  “In years past,” Matt explains, “Dallas’ overreliance on either oil or finance invariably led to a bust when commodity prices fell. But the current Dallas economy is diversified, resulting in a balance that is likely to sustain the economy throughout a prolonged national or global downturn.” That’s not to say, Matt warns, the market is impervious to an economic downturn, but it is better insulated.   2.

Irving, Texas The Most Diverse Zip Code In The U.S.

It probably doesn’t come as a surprise to North Texas residents that as the population in the Dallas-Fort Worth area has grown, so too has the diversity. But how many people would believe that the Metroplex – not New York, Los Angeles, or Miami – is home to the most diverse zip code in the country?  A study conducted by the residential real estate site Trulia revealed that Irving’s 75038 zip code is leading the way as the country’s most diverse neighborhood.

The 75038 zip code, which is just east of DFW Airport and near Highway 114,is home to almost an exactly even split of white, black, Hispanic and Asian residents.  According to Trulia, 26 percent of the residents are Asian, 25 percent are black, 23 percent are Hispanic, and 23 percent are white. The 11428 zip code in New York’s Queens Village neighborhood checked in at number two, while the 94130 zip code in San Francisco’s Treasure Island is third.

Trulia notes that along with being diverse, the neighborhoods that made their list also have several other traits in common. Most of the neighborhoods are in areas that are neither dense nor central to the metropolitan area they are a part of. The neighborhoods are also relatively unknown to people who aren’t familiar with the area.

Diversity also has an impact on population growth and home prices. Trulia says they found that from October 2011 to October 2012 neighborhoods that are more diverse have higher population growth and stronger growth in home prices. As a result, as home prices continue to rise these neighborhoods could become less diverse over time. This could lead to Trulia’s list looking quite different by the time the next census is released in 2020.

White House Details Small Business Stimulus Package

On March 17, at a White House event attended by small businesses and the media, the White House unveiled a multifaceted small business initiative to try and stimulate the small business economy with a major focus on unfreezing small business lending. Key elements of the package included reducing fees on SBA 7(a) and 504 loans, the Treasury buying $15 billion of small business loans on the secondary market, and a business stabilization loan program. "It's a huge step in the right direction," Giovanni Coratolo, director of Small Business Policy at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, said Saturday. "In this economy, having the least amount of risk for banks will incentivize banks to lend to small businesses. A lot of small businesses will benefit from this."

The White House and SBA released a number of documents detailing the plan. They can be accessed from the links below.

The Ultimate Path to a Work/Life Balance
According to CoStar Realty Information, the U.S. may now be witnessing the first major contraction in office space leases since the glut following the tech-bubble burst. The pinch on small businesses to contain operating costs may mean a downturn in traditional office leases and upgrades, yet ground has never been more fertile for alternatives.

Enter Ralph Gregory, the self-titled "father of virtual offices." In 1995, long before the media latched on to various definitions of this term, the Colorado-based Gregory started Intelligent Office
on the research-backed premise that other professionals like him would want to work from home or telecommute, while using professionally managed business functions that don't necessarily require an office, such as phone calls, faxes and e-mail.

In the following interview, Gregory discusses how management has increasingly embraced this model of doing business, and what that means for employees across the hierarchical spectrum.

INSIDE FRANCHISING
An excerpt from…
INSIDE FRANCHISING

About Intelligent Office: Launched in Boulder, Colo. in 1995, Intelligent Office provides "Class A" office space and business services to the growing number of small businesses and executives who want to work from anywhere and be free from having a full-time office.

The fast-growing franchise company has over 30 locations across the United States and Canada, and is adding about one new franchise per month. Intelligent Office was founded by Ralph Gregory, the “Father of Virtual Offices.” Thursday, April 19, 2007 STARTUPJOURNAL.COM

Multi-Unit Operations Offer Strength in Numbers, in business,size matters. Though bigger may not amount to better in every case, scalability is a key ingredient in any franchise. While some franchisees are content with the simplicity that Comes with running just one unit, others are eager to expand across multiple sites and, occasionally, even several brands and business concepts.

Multi-unit franchisees say that when it comes to squeezing the maximum return from their business investment, there is strength in numbers. As well as sharing capital assets, multi-unit franchisees are also able to maximize human resources. Directing several units means franchisees must be able to build a team and delegate supervisory and other tasks they may be used to performing themselves. In essence, their roles shift from that of an "operator" to an "owner," explains Ralph Gregory, president and founder of The Intelligent Office in Boulder, Colo. "By definition, a multi-unit owner cannot be an operator," Mr. Gregory says. His firm's concept, which offers office space and support services to business clients, encourages franchisees to spend time "working on their businesses, not just in them." That means empowering staff through a mix of base salary, commissions and bonuses that factor in tenure and bottom-line performance of the location. [Running multiple units] within close proximity can spark surprising synergies.

Success has to do with a rich knowledge of local real estate, demography, labor resources and vendors. In many cases,franchise systems offer fee structures and credit terms designed to sweeten multiunit franchising deals.

Franchising virtual office proves to be Intelligent
Reprinted with permission of The Boulder
County Business Report
— Ralph Gregory’s formula for providing clients with a virtual office has led to fast-paced growth spurred on by franchising the concept. Gregory founded Intelligent Office in 1995 and lined up its first franchise in 2000. Right now the company has 32 franchises in 16 states, representing approximately 6,000 accounts. And Intelligent Office is opening up to the international market as well, with one branch already in Canada and three more being negotiated overseas.

The Intelligent Office has experienced an annual increase in revenue of 35 to 40 percent, most recently posting revenues of $3.3 million in 2004 and $4.9 million in 2005. Gregory felt that because of the sophisticated level of services offered, his company would best serve the business world by becoming a franchise operation.
