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.

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...

Jumping without a parachute into your office space

This morning while reading the news at my office space Toronto, I learned that a British stuntman became the world’s first skydiver to land without a parachute on Wednesday, falling 731 metres (2,400 feet) to drop safely onto a crash-pad of cardboard boxes. Wearing a specially-made “wing suit,” Gary Connery leapt from a helicopter over Henley-on-Thames in southern England, aiming — with his life hanging in the balance — at a “runway” of 18,000 cardboard boxes. It is often said that many entrepreneurs and small businesses often get started without the aid of a parachute. Unlike the stuntman who chose to jump without a parachute, most entrepreneurs do not have a choice but to try to make a go of their business without one, because they cannot afford one. When they sign an office space for le...

Google Maps To Visit Your Toronto Office Space

A few years ago Google Maps started offering Google Street View, to provide panoramic views at the street level. Now Google is seeking to give Internet users a look inside of businesses. Employing the same Street View technology used in streets around the world, street view can now be used for your business. You can create a high-quality, interactive, 360-degree experience for potential customers. Imagine being able to find a business on Google Maps and not only be able to go down and see the street view of what the outside of the business looks like, but also be able to see what it looks like on the inside. Some U.S. office space companies started appearing on Google Maps in this way back in January along with a number of retail stores and restaurants. Google currently has photographers i...

Office Space Trends And Why This Blog Was Created

Office space trends are always changing and sometimes the people who could most benefit from them are not the ones to find out about them. Since launching this blog in November of 2008, it has been our mission to not only inform followers of office space trends or the things going on at  Telsec office space Toronto, but to share other business news in regards to small business. Part of this involved watching and investigating office space trends in Toronto and other small business trends from around the world. We have talked about the virtues of having a Toronto virtual office for Toronto businesses and for businesses outside Toronto or even Canada that want a Toronto business presence. We have also done blogs on ways for small businesses to save money and be more productive. In one of our...

France Risks Exodus of Wealthy Small Business Owners To Toronto Office Space

France may be the world’s fifth-richest country and home to some of the globe’s wealthiest people, but some argue that France does no celebrate its affluent citizens. Many are saying that France under President-elect Francois Hollande may see an exodus of many wealthy small business owners to Toronto office space. This is mainly due to the fact that Hollande, a Socialist that has publicly stated that he does not like the rich, plans to put a 75 percent tax on income of more than 1 million euros ($1.29 million). His stance has successful entrepreneurs in France contemplating a move, and European rivals are welcoming them. Real estate agents in Brussels have claimed they have taken several calls from French citizens seeking to lease office space in the Belgian capital after Franc...
