WeWork Is Ratcheting Up Broker Commissions to Lure New Tenants https://finance.yahoo.com/news/wework-ratcheting-broker-commissions-lure-190006193.html?soc_src=social-sh&soc_trk=tw via @YahooFinance

“The company is offering commercial real estate brokers worldwide a 100 percent commission on the first year of rent paid by any tenant who switches to WeWork from a top competitor and signs a lease by October 1. Tenants also get half off the first year’s rent if they sign for at least 12 months. That means, accounting for the discount, that WeWork’s current bonus to brokers is five times the standard commission it typically offers of 10 percent on the first year’s rent.”

Makes $24,000 a month without a business plan? Is Cat LeBlanc a business coach or just idea generator with some focus?

I’m all for consulting businesses but does she just tell people what they want to hear and give them ideas? she didn’t start with a business plan and that she used some market research to identify her value to clients but large sections of her website are dedicated to outlines and steps which look an awful lot like parts of a business plan minus extensive financials.

What does she actually “do” that’s worth $24,000 a month other than a tremendous amount of self promotion?

Skills Gap in Translation

Skills Gap:

A potential employee does not have the required skills and experience for the position up for hire.

Translation:

An esoteric software program or process that was not widely adopted until  about a year ago when some managers heard about it at an over priced industry convention.

The employee is expected to have 3 – 5 years of experience with the program or process that did not exist 2 years ago and the company will not train the potential new hire.
