The lake view from office space for rent Toronto is changing

For over 32 years the lake view from Telsec’s office space for rent Toronto has been the Toronto harbour and Lake Ontario. That is not changing. What is changing from the Toronto office space for rent view is the parking lot you would look down at is now under development. The development will not be tall enough or west enough to obscure the south view of the Toronto harbour, the Toronto islands and Lake Ontario. Today it was announced that a landmark that is also included in the lake view from office space for rent Toronto has been closed. Toronto Port Authority rescinded Captain John’s lease for the watery slip at the foot of Yonge St. and told the owner “Captain” John Letnik that he has until July 27 to remove the ship and its signs. Many bloggers are speculating that the ships tired lo...

Being an Entrepreneur is Like Walking a Tightrope Across Niagara Falls

Watching Nik Wallenda cross Niagara Falls on a tightrope the width of 3 pennies makes one reflect on the challenges of running your own business and the risks that are involved. Sometimes being an entrepreneur is like walking a tightrope across Niagara Falls. It may not be as dangerous as the walk that Nik Wallenda took, but it can be almost as scary. Many of the people who rent office space Toronto are entrepreneurs who have built their business from the ground up and have shouldered the risks of starting a business on their own, without a safety net. Not having a safety net does not mean they have not taken precautions to be safer. The fact that they rent Toronto office space without a lease is just one sign that they are cautious about signing a long-term lease that would cost them lots...

Office space Toronto tech support

With traditional office space Toronto, you have to set up your internal computer network and then find an Internet service provider to bring in the signal. This sounds easy, but sometimes it does not work the way you want it to work. You want your office space Toronto tech support from one source – not two or three. A new Toronto office space client told us a reason they moved to our office business centre and the reason was not uncommon. They had a traditional office space in a downtown office building, but had many technical problems that their installers and ISP (Internet service provider) could not fix. The network installers said that the problem was with the ISP and the ISP said the problem with the network guys. When they moved to Telsec, they loved that the office space Toronto tec...

Why Business Centre Is No Longer A Bad Word

I recently had lunch with an old friend who currently resides in Vancouver, he also has an apartment in Toronto when he visits family here. We were talking about him having two office spaces, one Toronto office space and another Vancouver office space. His office space in Vancouver is a private office, but he also has a semi-private office space in Toronto that he uses when he is here. As a business consultant he helps large business to improve their operations, but he also helps them find ways of diversifying. He told me of a recent lecture he gave at a conference where he told conference attendees “why business centre is no longer a bad word”. His lecture about why business centre is no longer a bad word came about when one of his clients was looking to open a branch office i...

A Good Business Address is Important

Before I talk about why a good business address is important, I have to tell you about what a Google search brought up about my new home. When I did a Google search of my new home address, I found that the house was used as an art project a number of years back. It seems that a previous owner of the house had invited a number of artists to come into the house and do various art installations. Some of the photos and videos I found online showed what look like a completely different interior of the house. One video even showed a mural of a singing flower that has since been painted over. But if you look closely at the wall under different lighting conditions, you can make out some of the lines of the mural. This started me thinking of addresses and how people see them. For many years small a...

Traffic was crazy this weekend near my downtown Toronto office space

On both Saturday and Sunday I had to meet a few clients only to find that Traffic was crazy this weekend near my downtown Toronto office space. Getting to my office space downtown was not a problem on Saturday, but trying to give my client a lift back uptown was a nightmare. I left the Toronto Star Building around 6:30 pm heading up Yonge Street. I was unaware that only 10 minutes earlier there had been a shooting at the Toronto Eaton Centre. Traffic was a mess on Yonge, so I decided to try Bay Street – it too was full of traffic. It was odd that there would be that much traffic at 6:30 pm especially since the Blue Jay game had ended a few hours before. It was not until I reached Richmond Street that I became aware of what had happened by tuning to CBC Radio One. I turned onto Richmond and...

Working Remotely to your Office Space Toronto without Home Internet

Working remotely to your office space Toronto without home Internet can be easily done using a USB Internet stick that is available from most cell phone providers. These sticks are great when you are just using small amounts of Internet bandwidth such as browsing the web, checking emails and small file uploads. The downside of these USB Internet sticks are the limits of speed and the amount of data you can use before it becomes cost prohibitive. Even the cost to purchase one of these sticks can be $200 to $300, and then you have to choose your usage plan. You can also consider Working remotely to your office space Toronto without home Internet if you have a laptop computer and an available wifi signal from a neighbour .

American office space clients enjoy the Memorial Day Weekend

On Friday afternoon in the 18th floor kitchen of my office space Toronto, there was a few people talking about American holidays. One person asked “Why has Memorial Day, like so many of America’s national holidays, been reduced to mattress sales, appliance sales, fast food specials, and vacation deals?” All one needs to do this weekend or any other US holiday weekend, is to watch a US television station and within no time at all, they will see a (insert holiday name here) Mattress Sale. There are a number of office space Toronto clients who represent American branch offices in Toronto. Today being Memorial Day also meant that many of those American office clients have the day off. The one advantage that employees of foreign companies with Toronto office space enjoy, is that they get their ...

Happy 40th Aniversary Dundurn Press

Long before I started writing this blog for Telsec’s Toronto office space, I worked in another office space Toronto for a book publisher called Dundurn Press. Dundurn is a Canadian owned book publishing company that is owned by Kirk Howard and was started by him and his late business partner Dr. Ian Low in 1972. Their goal was to define Canada, and now 40 years later and with several thousands of books already published, Dundurn has made its mark on Canada. Tonight, as a former employee and their go-to computer guy, I was invited to take photos of their epic 40th anniversary event at the Arts and Letters Club in Toronto. I had the chance to talk to older authors (whom I worked with years ago) and new authors that I had not met before. I even had a great conversation with Mike Strobel (colu...
