The 1000 AWESOME Things Talked About Around my Toronto Office Space

The buzz around my Toronto office space on Thursday was how Neil Pasricha concluded his blog that was a list of 1000 things “AWESOME”.  It all began on June 20, 2008, when Neil set out on a mission to write 1,000 blog posts. Each of his weekday blogs was to chronicle of one awesome thing and count down until he hit #1. After launching “1,000 Awesome Things”, he started to get some attention from his friends and colleagues, but it really gained traction 20 posts in, when post 980 was linked to on a site called Fark.com. His blog’s popularity began to snowball further after Wired Magazine wrote about his blog and called post 980, which was titled “Old, dangerous playground equipment”.  Pasricha probably had no idea when he started his blog that it would lead to three books (two of which beca...

Small Businesses like those who Rent Toronto Office Space at Telsec are Driving Canada’s Economic Recovery

It is not government bailouts or consumers tightening their belts or even government stimulus money that has helped pull us through this global meltdown. It was small businesses that were prepared for the downturn. Many small business owners knew there was an economic downturn coming, but they did not know when. To prepare for a bad economy, a lot of smart small business owners made sure to get their debts under control and manage the resources they had control of.  One such way that some businesses decided to best use their resources and manage their costs was to abandon the traditional office model and move to an office business centre. By moving away from a traditional office model, they were able to eliminate capital costs of office furniture, leasing or purchasing photocopiers as well...

The New Old Boys’ Club Is Being Run By Women

While only 12 of the Fortune 500 companies are run by women, there are a lot more large corporations that are run by a woman. Women are slowly making their way into senior executive positions and in the seats of big boardrooms, but many say that more is needed to get women into those top positions. When you look at medium and small sized companies, the numbers of women entrepreneurs is rising and their businesses are growing faster than those of their male counterparts. One just needs to look at business centres like Telsec and see the number of Toronto office spaces that are rented by companies that are owned or run by women – and many others have women in senior positions. In fact, the Vice President of Telsec is a woman. In a recent article in Forum (The Magazine of Influence for Financ...

The Government Has Introduced Their Budget’s, Do You have Yours?

On January 17, 2012, Toronto City Council approved a balanced 2012 Operating Budget. On March 27, 2012, the Province of Ontario presented its budget. Only two days later on March 20, 2012 the Federal Government of Canada handed down its budget. These budgets are a way for governments to have a clear guideline of where they will be spending tax dollars for the next fiscal period. As well, this is a time the governments have to try to address debt and how they will pay down the debt accumulated by years of running deficit budgets. The one area that I do not see governments addressing is their expenses on office space for lease Toronto. Depending on their corporate charter, large businesses with different year-ends also prepare a budget and plan for the coming year. They too need to know what...

A Toronto “Office Space” theme Party

Yesterday I received a very odd piece of mail at my Toronto office space. There was no return address on the envelope only an Initech logo (yes the fictitious software company in the movie “Office Space”). What made the envelope weirder was that it was stapled shut. When I finally opened the envelope, I found a pink slip of paper that had been purposely wrinkled to look like it had been scrunched up and thrown away. It had my name on it and it was a notice to inform me that my services at Initech would no longer be needed. Stapled to the pink slip was a letter. The letter explained that it was an invitation to an “Office Space” themed party sometime in mid April. I was impressed that the pink slip had been personalized by inserting my name; I was even more impressed that the letter was qui...

The Tale of Two Companies with Toronto Office Space

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom and information, today is not the age of foolishness, it is the epoch of what we belief to be the future, it is the epoch of business incredulity, it is the season of Light,  the season of Darkness has just passed, this is the spring of hope for businesses, the winter of despair is behind us, we have everything before us… ok you get the idea, but that is where the comparison and parody of Charles Dickens’ book ends and we begin The Tale of Two Companies with Toronto Office Space. In this Tale of Two Companies with Toronto Office Space, we shall call the first company Forte and the second company Unanimous. Fans of Donald Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice will recognize those names as the team names for thi...

A downtown Toronto office space for rent just minutes from where the action is!

A story in the Feb. 9th Metro Toronto News revealed a startling fact from the recently released 2011 Census. A small downtown pocket from Lake Ontario north to Front St., west to Bathurst St. and east to Spadina Ave. has seen explosive growth in the last several years. In 2006, the population in that area was 1,106. It is now 5,911 – a 400%-plus increase and more than triple the average population density (per square kilometre) for the rest of the city, the article concluded. A similar influx of people is now occurring in the Bay St./Yonge St. area around Lake Shore Blvd. where several new condos have been built. But where are all these people working? Well, many are remaining downtown! And one of the most convenient options in downtown Toronto office space for rent (commercial office spac...
