So, 2010 is going to be a big year for you! You’ve decided it’s time to step up and into your own small home based business – but you want to make sure you get it right so you don’t suffer financially, right? It’s common knowledge that many small business start-ups fail quite quickly, and home based businesses are no exception. There are many reasons why home based businesses fail. Here are just two things that can contribute to the failure of a home based business:

  • Inability to attract clients – particularly corporate ones – due to a perception of the business as a small home based operation;
  • Poor customer service including a failure to respond to prospective clients in a timely and professional manner, leading to a loss of business;

If you’ve done your market research and you’re confident you have sufficient funds to survive the early growth stages of your business you’re well on the way to success. The next step is to ensure that your business appears professional and that you’re able to attract good clients and communicate with them in a professional manner. A New York virtual office can help you with that – and from as little as $25 a month!

With a New York virtual office you can:

  • Have a physical New York office address for your business. The address can be used on your business cards and clients can send mail to you at the address. Any walk in clients will be able to leave a message for you at our staffed reception area.
  • Have a New York telephone number. Calls to your New York virtual office number can be forwarded to you or to a message bank. Alternatively, you can arrange to have a live operator answer all your calls during business hours and take messages personally.
  • Arrange meetings or presentations at your New York location – we have meeting rooms and offices available for short term hire at inexpensive rates. That means that when you need to be “at the office” physically, you can be.

You might be years away from being able to afford office rental in New York – and perhaps you don’t aspire to that at all – but a New York virtual office can give you many of the benefits of a great office address without the expense, or the need to travel to the office!

Every Monday at 12:30pm, WMP Concert Hall offers a 45 minute long chamber music concert to the public, and it is free admission with a suggested donation of $10.00. The idea of the concert series is to offer high quality music to their neighbors while they take their lunch break.

Monday, January 25th @ 12:30pm:
Cellist Clara Yang and Pianist Joseph Liccardo

These two talented artists will perform works by Beethoven, Bach and Britten.

Cellist Clara Yang has appeared in numerous solo, chamber music, and orchestral performances at major venues and festivals across the United States and internationally. She earned her Bachelors and Masters Degrees at the Juilliard School where she studied with Joel Krosnick, and earned her Professional Studies Diploma at the Mannes College of Music under Timothy Eddy. While at The Juilliard School, Ms. Yang was a recipient of the Grunin Prize in Cello, the Victor Herbert Prize and also received the Leonard Rose Scholarship.

s. Yang has appeared as a soloist with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, New England Conservatory Youth Orchestra, Concord Orchestra, and Brockton Symphony. She has given her New York debut solo recital at Carnegie’s Weill Hall in 2008 and other performances at Lincoln Center’s Avery Fischer Hall and Alice Tully Hall, Merkin Hall, and at the United Nations General Assembly Hall. She has won prizes in the Boston Symphony Concerto Competition, Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition, and the New England Conservatory Concerto Competition in the United States, and Ewha and Chosun Music Competition in South Korea.

As an active teacher and certified Suzuki instructor, Ms. Yang is currently on the cello faculty at Mozart Academy of John Jay College CUNY, Center for Preparatory Studies in Music at Queens College CUNY, Bloomingdale School of Music, and Lucy Moses School at Kaufman Center.

Joseph Liccardo, pianist, holds a B.M. in Performance from the Eastman School of Music, where he studied with Dr. Douglas Humpherys. Before college he studied for 12 years with Dr. Donald Pirone at the Center for Preparatory Studies in Music at Queens College. During his time at Eastman, Joseph distinguished himself as both a soloist and chamber musician.

He received the John Celentano Award for Excellence in Chamber Music and also received a top prize for piano accompanying in the Jessie Kneisel Lieder Competition. In March 2006, Joseph won first prize in the young artist division of the Music Teachers National Association Piano competition, for which he received a Steinway Model M grand piano.

Upon graduation from the Eastman school, Joseph moved back to the New York City area, where he works as a freelance musician. He teaches private piano lessons at the Lawrence Eisman Center for Preparatory Studies in Music. Joseph recently returned from a tour of China, where he performed with the renowned pipa player Zhang Hongyan. Following his trip to China, he traveled to Wakayama, Japan to give a collaborative recital.

WMP Concert Hall is located at 31-33 East 28th Street, between Park and Madison. No food or beverages are permitted in the concert hall.
