What To Do When You Outgrow Your Toronto Virtual Office

Many small businesses that are started out of a home office will graduate to taking a virtual office Toronto when they want to have a professional business address. But a lot do not know what to do when they outgrow their Toronto virtual office. They have established clients who know where their business is and what their telephone number is, so taking a new office with a new address can pose a few challenges. This is not the case for small businesses who choose a Toronto virtual office location that is also in a professional business centre that also offers office for rent Toronto. One reason that a business may find that they have outgrown their Toronto virtual office is that they have hired staff and do not want to bring staff into their home office because they do not have the office s...

To Some at our Office Space Toronto, the Grey Cup Party is Not Over Yet!

This past week has been quite a festive time around our Toronto office space with some people celebrating the American Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday and others taking in the 100th Grey Cup festivities. With the Toronto Argonauts 35-22 win over the Calgary Stampeders, you would think things would be getting back to normal. Nope! To some at our Office Space Toronto, the Grey Cup party is not over yet. Congratulations to the Toronto Argonauts Football Club from all the staff and office space Toronto clients on winning the 100th Grey Cup – and the first Grey Cup win at home in 60 years. You have made this city very proud. People around our office for rent Toronto were talking today about the game and the events leading up to it, while others were making plan...

American Thanksgiving at my office for rent Toronto (guest blog)

I have had office for lease Toronto at Telsec for the past 5 years and today at my office was like most days – but there seemed to be less people in the hallways than most days. Then it dawned on me that today was thanksgiving in the USA and that many of the American office tenants had taken the day off and that some had headed south to visit with family. But some of the people who did not take the day off or go away decided to have an American Thanksgiving at my office for rent Toronto. A group of tenants at my office for rent Toronto, both Americans and Canadians, decided that they would book one of the many meeting rooms at 9 am and watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on the large-screen television. Some brought their coffee and snacks while others brought their laptops to ke...

Black Friday, Cyber Monday and now Small Business Saturday

Today, many around our Toronto office space are talking about the newest excuse for a shopping day that revolved around the USA Thanksgiving. It is called “Small Business Saturday.” Small Business Saturday is not new this year – it was actually conceived in 2010 by American Express as a promotion. The idea was to establish an American shopping holiday held on the Saturday after Thanksgiving as a way of encouraging holiday shoppers to patronize brick-and-mortar businesses that are small and locally owned. Here in Canada the promotion of Small Business Saturday was done by the Canadian Federation of Independent Businesses as not only a way of getting Canadians to support small businesses, but also to get the attention of various levels of government to recognize the importance of...

Knowing Who Your Office For Rent Toronto Neighbour is Not Going To Be

Knowing who will be your neighbour when you move into an office for rent or when leasing an office is a good thing. However, not knowing who your future office for rent Toronto neighbour is may have some influence on your choice of Toronto office spaces. The person or company who shares a wall with your company today may be quiet and respectful, but what happens when they move out and another office for rent tenant moves in? Recently, a Telsec office space for lease Toronto client visited his dentist. While in the dentist’s chair he heard some odd noises that sounded like an out-of-tune piano and a child banging on a drum set. When he asked his dentist of 20 years (who had been in the same location) what he was hearing, his dentist replied that the new tenant next door was a music-lesson s...

Office Space Toronto Water Cooler Talk is about Toronto Argos in The 100th Grey Cup

Today in all of the common areas of our office space Toronto, people were talking about the fact that the Toronto Argonauts will be the home team in the 100th Grey Cup at the Rogers Centre on November 25th. The most talked about fact was that this is the first time in 30 years that the Argos have played in the annual Grey Cup on home turf and that it has been 60 years since they last won a Grey Cup at home. This past year when the management at Telsec’s office space Toronto wanted to give away Tickets to the Grey Cup as part of a contest, they sadly found out that the game had been sold out since June, long before anyone knew which teams would be playing. It was quite interesting to find how many people with Toronto office rentals at Telsec are fans of the Argonauts and the CFL. For many C...

There are Some Real Clowns in our Office Space Toronto

It seems that there are some real clowns in our office space Toronto. Yes, I am talking about the kind of clowns with red noses and big shoes. These are special clowns that will be marching this Sunday in the Santa Claus Parade. For the past few years a few of our Toronto office space tenants have secretly been dressing up as clowns and have been part of the annual Santa Claus Parade as Celebrity Clowns. This year, they came out and told a few other office for rent tenants about this in a bid to recruit a one more person to join them. Being a Celebrity Clown does not just take buying a clown costume and a pair of big shoes, it takes a lot of heart and love of people. Most people have no problems walking the almost 6 km parade route, but try walking that distance in shoes that are twice as ...

Don’t Just Visit One Office Space Toronto, Visit a Few

When you are looking for a new car you will often research several options and test drive at least two of those options. When you are looking at a new home you will research a number of properties and ask to view several of those properties. But for some reason many small business owners will rely on the internet or a broker to find their best office space Toronto options – and only plan to visit one or two that, according to their websites, look the best when it comes to online appearance and affordability. The fact is that narrowing your search to only one or two office space visits could make you miss out on that Toronto office space that is perfect for your company or organization. Case #1 A potential office space Toronto for rent client contacted a commercial real estate broker to hel...

How people at our Office Space Toronto Find Truth on the Internet

A lot of people believe that if it is on the internet it must be true. That is why urban legends spread so fast on the internet. When people at our office space Toronto get e-mails and links with odd-sounding stories that sound too good to be true, they verify the story with Snopes. While snopes.com is the definitive Internet reference source for urban legends, folklore, myths, rumours and misinformation, there really is no “Ministry of Truth” on the internet. Some people want to encourage search providers to be proverbial Ministries of Truth, however, skeptics say that this could open the door to broader speech controls and other unintended consequences. When searching for office space Toronto or Toronto office space, some people will find the various ads at the top of the sea...

Google Recognized Importance of Downtown Toronto Office Space

Internet search and advertising giant Google is cutting back its sprawling offices located outside Toronto in the 905 area, consolidating in Toronto’s downtown core and opening new head offices within easy reach of downtown condos. The reason for this move is to facilitate the ability to find young talent and to retain employees who have purchased or are looking to purchase condominiums in the downtown core. Companies today are increasingly accepting the higher downtown core rents in exchange for the value of more centrally located downtown Toronto office space where they can draw from the pool of young, highly educated workers moving into newly built condos that are rising in the city’s centre. The fact is that young people aren’t happy with the long commute to and from the suburbs....
