LIFESTYLE – Take a leap with Vrumi

Vrumi is opening up homes around London to inspire people to ‘Take a Leap’ in 2016 and practice their passion. Vrumi will be hosting a series of partnerships with small business owners and creatives, challenging Londoners to try that thing they’ve always wanted to do, whether it’s becoming a yoga
teacher, a DJ, a photographer or an artist.

Research shows that workers are ending the 9-to-5, with 45% of Millennials choosing workplace flexibility over pay. There has been an increase in freelancing and self-employment, with workers choosing to seek work with a greater purpose, considering “a job where I can make an impact” to be
essential to their happiness. Services like Vrumi are helping pave the way for flexible working. Vrumi is the revolutionary new ‘sharing economy’ service that specialises in opening up amazing homes as inspiring workspaces during the day. The service helps hosts to earn money from spaces that would
have otherwise been idle, while guests save money on workspaces.

Fans of the service include Lauren Pope, who began her career as a successful DJ before joining the cast of TOWIE. Lauren went on to launch Hair Rehab London, a range of natural clip-in hair extensions which is now sold on the high street and internationally. “I love the flexibility of using a Vrumi space. There are so many amazing options to suit our needs, from private spaces to host a business meeting, creative spaces for photoshoots or open spaces for Hair Rehab London academy days,” says Lauren Pope, founder of Hair Rehab London Partnering with London creatives who have shunned a regular 9-5 job to pursue their real passions,
