Not Having To Go Into My Office Space Toronto

It is days like today that I am happy that I have the option of not having to go into my office space Toronto and instead work remotely from home. I woke up this morning to find my car buried in a snowbank and I did not have the energy to dig it out (too much Christmas leftovers last night). I had a great deal of work today and because I could not get my car out, I decided to work from home. All of my files are stored on my cloud server and if clients wanted to reach me at my Toronto office space, I gave the receptionist instructions to forward my calls to my cellphone. My clients hear the same friendly voice who always answers my calls. When she transfers the call, they believe that I am working at my downtown Toronto office space. This was working quite well until a client wanted to meet...

Christmas Eve Day at Our Office Space Toronto

Twas the day before Christmas and there were many people wandering the halls of our office space Toronto. Smiles were everywhere and some people even had eggnog instead of their complimentary coffee! Even many of those who do not celebrate the Christian holiday were wrapped up in the spirit of goodwill associated with the commercial trappings of the holiday. It was pleasant to hear “Merry Christmas” rather than “Happy Holidays” from people you did not know. One conversation that was overheard in the kitchen of our office space Toronto was about the most requested thing that mall Santas were being asked for. Along with the usual top trending toys, this year Santa is getting a lot of requests for an Ikea monkey or a pet wild turkey like the one that has been seen alon...

Do You Get What You Pay For In A Virtual Office Toronto?

There is the old saying that “You get what you pay for.” However, that phrase does not always apply when it comes to virtual office Toronto alternatives. There are plenty of choices out there, plenty of Toronto virtual office options. But comparing them may not be easy. When you are looking for the best virtual office Toronto solution, some virtual office providers will try to sell you on the most expensive plan available – but it may not be the best fit for your business. Their goal is to sell you on what is best for them; not always what is best for you. Your job is to determine if your small business needs a virtual office Toronto solution that includes a major downtown core-office business address that looks upscale to potential clients – or simply a basic office space Toro...

How Are You Going To Deal With The One-Day Teachers Strike?

One-day work stoppages by teachers have been happening around the province. But Tuesday they will hit home for those with office space Toronto who have children in elementary school. Last week when one York Region area was affected by the one-day strike, a few Toronto office space tenants who had children in those schools decided to work from home rather than at their downtown office space. Today, an office for rent Toronto client couple who lives in Hamilton decided to bring their son into the office and put him to work doing some filing. So, much of the water-cooler conversations around the kitchens of our office space Toronto and in the line-up at Tim Hortons on the fourth-floor of the Toronto Star Building, involved what people in Toronto would do tomorrow when more schools were closed...

Putting on the Gloves in Toronto Office Space

The old expression “Taking the Gloves Off” has often been used in business when it is time to knuckle down and “get down to business.” In these tough economic times many small businesses are having to take the gloves off and fight to survive. Other entrepreneurs and small business owners are putting the gloves on at their Toronto offices to better interact with technology. Today at our office space Toronto, this blogger noticed a woman who had an office for rent Toronto at Telsec wearing gloves in the 18th-floor kitchen. I was perplexed at what I was seeing because it was not that cold anywhere on the floor. A closer look showed that the gloves had silver-looking tips on the first two digits and on the thumb. It turns out that the woman was not wearing the gloves fo...

Popup Offices are not an alternative to Office Space Toronto

You have probably heard about the trend called Popup Shop or Popup Retail, where empty retail space is temporarily used for a short time. Literally, they can pop up one day and be gone the next, hence the coined word “popup.”  For owners of empty retail spaces, popups can help bridge the gap between long-term tenants. For a business, this setup may provide an ideal way to have a quick sell-off sale or test the retail market briefly in that location. Now there is a new term that started in the UK called Popup Offices or Popup Office Space. The idea behind the popup office is that companies can temporarily house staff in a non-traditional office location for a short time with little or no infrastructure except for a Wifi Internet connection. The problem is that these short-term o...

Social Media is Not for Every Small Business

While Telsec’s office space Toronto has benefited greatly from using social media like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google Plus, other small businesses have not had any success using social media to attract new business or to reinforce business relationships with existing clients. Having an Internet presence is good, but social media requires a commitment. Before considering setting up a social media profile, you should first make a plan on how and when you will update and interact with that profile. The experts say that unless you can commit to regular updates and interactions with your social network followers, you are better to not have a social media profile. The reason for this is that without constant monitoring and interaction with your followers, problems may occur and by ...

Seasonal Party for Office Staff at Office Space Toronto

This blog was inspired by some interesting conversations that happened at the Telsec office space Toronto Christmas party for office for rent Toronto tenants. This year, like previous years, the food and drinks were set up in the boardroom that is just off of the reception area, but most people were standing around the reception area talking and being offered finger foods as the waiter walked through the crowd. Because this was a Christmas party for all office space for lease Toronto tenants, one of the topics of conversation between tenants was how big and diverse the crowd was and maybe Telsec should move next year’s party to one of the larger Toronto meeting rooms or even the seminar training room. Another topic of conversation that was also party-related was where and what type o...

Using a Hashtag Can Be Good For Business

Social media can be good for business. You just need to know how to use it to your advantage. Social media outlets like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn are becoming very popular with larger businesses to help with brand awareness and to keep their brands top of mind. But these sites can also benefit small businesses who have office for rent Toronto at office business centres like Telsec. When it comes to Facebook, the key is to establish and grow your page with followers or “likes.” You should start by letting friends, family and those who you already do business with, get to know you better and like you. The second step is to do some outreach and find groups where the members have similar interests or are potential consumers for your product or service. Thirdly, consider runnin...
