I know what you're thinking - prefabricated houses aren't new. At some point, we've all known someone who's lived in a mobile home, trailer, or another sort of prefab home. But this new company has a fun name and a fun concept that's definitely worth talking about!
When we think of "all inclusive" hotels, we automatically assume that it's a resort in the Dominican Republic or Mexico, sitting on or near a beach, where the food is often sub-par and the domestic beer and tropical drinks flow freely. Although most all inclusive hotels in the world are this popular style, one Singapore hotel is trying to transform the meaning of "all inclusive".
With exercise and employee well-being becoming a greater focus in many workplaces, a new company has released something that allows those who typically work at a computer to multi-task in a way that's for their own greater good, and that of the company that they work for. This concept isn't a business idea per say - but it's definitely worth mentioning because it might just set a new trend for workspaces of the future.

When you move into a property that has become overgrown with brush, it's a big job to have it all removed so your lawn area is transformed into a beautiful useable green space.
