What does it take to succeed as a manager?01.05.17

In a span of over 20 years, Josh Verne has acquired vast experience in starting and growing businesses. The CEO of gives an insight of what it takes to be a good manager:

Stop being bossy and act like a leader. Bosses demand their employees to do what they want. This will help bosses accomplish their own goals. Leaders first earn respect from their employees. They then take advantage of this to accomplish an objective that they set together as a team. Only leaders, and not bosses, succeed in their businesses.

– Good managers understand that there can always be a win for everybody, even in a bleak situation. They then find ways to ensure that every person wins in the decisions they make. This helps to boost teamwork.

– The key to appearing more authoritative is to listen more and speak less. Josh Verne states that real power lies in using fewer words. Employees who notice that you listen to them will also listen to you.

– Find a way to balance your life. Having much money and no real relationship will make you suffer. Not having enough money and having a family will also make you suffer.

– Make sure that you are passionate about what you are doing. If you are not, you should consider changing it to what you like. You will only succeed if you love what you are doing.

Jason Halpern: Real Estate Mogul and Visionary01.05.17

If you happen to be in the market for a luxury apartment in New York City or South Florida, you’ve probably heard of JMH Development Co. which has been dominating the real estate industry for over 50 years.


The family-owned company is lead by Jason Halpern, a third generation real estate mogul who’s been in the business for nearly his entire life. After Halpern’s father, Joel A. Halpern, was killed in a boating accident in 1981 he’s worked hard to carry on his father’s ambitions and even carve out his legacy.

As a multimillionaire, father and husband, at 45 years young, Halpern has no plans for slowing down. In fact, His favorite R&R activity is zipping down a runway in an expensive car. “Speed relaxes me,” he told TheRealDeal.


He manages various projects in areas of Brooklyn and South Florida, where he has offices. Jason has invested $500 million in projects across New York state; one of which includes a warehouse on 184 Kent Ave. in Brooklyn, where he transformed the shoddy, vacant, hollow home, into a lively complex encompassing 384 luxury apartments. Halpern also contributed to the growth of townhomes in New York state with his “Cobble Hill” project, where JMH added, in total, nine new luxury townhomes to the larger Brooklyn area. Fun fact: those townhomes were originally built in the 1850s.


JMH also teamed up with Madison Estates in 2014 to purchase the oldest movie theater in Brooklyn for $7.5 million. The two renovated Brooklyn Heights Cinema, which was originally built in 1895, into a five-story rental property.


Jason focuses on building within historic districts, first gaining rapport from the communities he’s working in while remaining sensitive to the significance that his other properties have from a historical standpoint. “Respecting the community in which you develop,” is Jason’s go-to motto.


In 2015, JMH finished work on the Aloft South Beach hotel in Miami, Florida with the help of Madden Real Estate Ventures. The project renovated the old Motel Ankara in Miami Beach and turned it into a whole new structure.

The Aloft South Beach Hotel was later sold to the Boston real estate company, Rockpoint Group, for $105 million, who changed its name to The Gates Hotel South Beach. Halpern confirmed the deal on Sept. 22 of last year.

It’s been an adventurous 15 years for Halpern, as the head of his family’s company. His job might feel more like a circus act to outsiders – seeing him juggle the number of different projects he has on his plate.

Jason, despite being so busy, has followed the New York Giants game-to-game with his teenage son, Max. They were there for the Giants 2012 Super bowl win in Indianapolis. And recently, he went bungee jumping off a bridge in Zimbabwe, with his wife Veronika, during a trip to celebrate their friend’s 40th birthday.

Brief History of Handy Inc.01.05.17

Early in the year of 2015, Handy Inc. CEO Oisin Hanrahan was worried for the future of his company. Every team leadership meeting saw him faced with the unenviable experience of watching slide shows about the failed idea that he so strongly supported in the past. The company was transitioning the way it hired its cleaners, otherwise known as pros. Hanrahan had been a strong supporter of the idea to use online on boarding to hire, rather than have employees guide prospects through the application process. Harrahan’s fellow co-founder, Umang Dua, had been strongly resisting the idea since it was brought up in 2014. The company agreed to do a trial run of the process in Miami and Washington, D.C. markets, At the same time, the company was looking for new investors, who questioned the future of this type of business in today’s market. They may have been right, as other competing companies were struggling to gain a profit at the time. The company thought it would save money by implementing the new online on boarding program, but numbers slipped and due to a lack of available cleaners to work, the company was forced to cancel more than a thousand appointments. The company had to figure out how it would be able to shift from growth to profit, sacrificing some of the former in hopes of gaining the latter. Previously, Handy had outperformed competitors and facilitated its own growth by spending more money. Now with many of its competitors being driven out of business, the company must figure out how to succeed in today’s market. The company would eventually begins outsourcing its customer experience department to call centers in Florida and Missouri, meaning letting go of many employees. This proved to be successful, and today Handy’s numbers are on the rise.
