Björgvin models his business model after the 4-hour work week, by Tim Ferriss.

This episode was brought to you by our mutual friends, peers and fellow young professionals: Dillon Walker and Gustavo Corte, the proud founders of Common Workspace. I personally love working out of Common, given they are uniquely located above La Cafe Poca Cosa downtown. Also, they have 24/7 access once you become a member. They have a ton of perks that come with their membership, whether you are renting a desk for a day, or a corner office for the year! You can learn more by visiting their website.
