Why Lease When You Can Have an Office for Rent Toronto

Many small to medium size businesses that need an office for rent Toronto want good quality office space Toronto without the long term commitment. They do not want to be tied to a lease when all they are looking for is an office for rent Toronto to get their business up and going. Why should a growing company consider an office for rent Toronto rather than leasing office space in Toronto? Businesses really want office space Toronto that is flexible to grow with them that does not require signing another lease or having to break an existing lease. Being on a month to month commitment for their Toronto office space, allows businesses to grow or cut back on office space without having to change their prestigious business address. Besides the physical office space, companies looking for an off...

The Best Office Space in Toronto

Finding the best office space in Toronto is not always easy when you do not know where to begin your office search Toronto. For medium and larger companies their search for the best office space in Toronto begins with a search for office space availability in a class A or class B building. For many of them, the best office space in Toronto is at the most prestigious address in the most sought after buildings. For smaller businesses the costs associated with class A buildings far outweigh the benefits of having the most prestigious address. Some would consider the best office space in Toronto to be class A buildings like: First Canadian Place which rises 298 metres tall, it also stands as the tallest building in Canada; Scotia Plaza is the second-tallest building in the city and the country...

Mother’s Day and Disaster Recovery

Mothers Day weekend has been hard for me for the past many years. My own mother passed away a few years ago and it saddens me to think that she is no longer around to spend it with her. The Mothers Day weekend is also sad for me as it was the Friday before Mothers Day (May 11 1997) that my first wife Janet passed away. So instead of celebrating, I find myself reflecting about my mother and my late wife. After I got home from my downtown Toronto office space on Thursday I got an email telling me that The Telsec office space Toronto website had been hacked and was being blocked by Google. I spent several hours trying to isolate the problem and resolve it. After trying to isolate the problem I remembered that I had a clean version of the site on my computer and uploaded it. That still did not...

Royal Wedding Dress Replicas?

Over the past few days there were lots of things in the news to talk about over the water cooler in the kitchen at the executive suites Toronto where I have my Toronto office space. You would expect people to be talking about the fact that Bin Laden is dead, the election results or the flooding caused by the Mississippi river, but instead everyone was talking about replicas of Royal Wedding dress are already being created. Just three days after Kate Middleton’s fairy-tale wedding to Prince William, replicas of her Alexander McQueen gown that was designed by Sarah Burton were already being showcased. It seems that one such designer Shala Moradi, who is the director of design for Faviana, a New York-based eveningwear company has had her team working around the clock to make a dress as ...

The Royal Wedding and Funny Hats at my Toronto Office Space

It was not just any Friday morning at my downtown Toronto office space, it was Royal Wedding day. People got to the office early to watch the royal wedding live on TV and over the Internet. Some people took it to a different level by dressing up and wearing funny hats. When I arrived at the Toronto Star Building early this morning, I decided to first go to the cafeteria to see what breakfast special they were offering for the Royal Wedding. I was sadly disappointed that they were not offering bangers and mash until lunch time. I grabbed an English muffin from Tim Horton’s and went up to my office space Toronto for a complimentary coffee. Before leaving the cafeteria, I noticed that there were a group of women watching the Royal Wedding on TV wearing funny hats like so many of the women who...

Quiting Smoking while being Sick, I become the Devil

I am currently fighting a throat and ear infection that has made smoking painful… So I am taking this time to go Cold Turkey and quit smoking. It is not the easiest thing to do, but there is no better time to do it. Going through nicotine withdrawal while sick is a bit harder, yet easier at the same time.  I can take the medications the doctor has given me and spend most of my time sleeping instead of thinking of having a cigarette. The downfall is that I have become a real devil of a person to deal with. I have been fighting this bug for almost a week now, I finally realized how bad it was on Tuesday.  I had a meeting with a major client on Tuesday at my downtown Toronto office space, during the meeting the client pulled out a bottle of hand cleaner to wipe off his pen. I knew then ...

What is an Easter Parade without Darth Vadar and the Easter Bunny

The 44th edition of the Toronto Beaches Lions Club Easter Parade was held yesterday. The parade was full of happy, hoppy people including this year’s parade Grand Marshal, Heather Moyse; who won Canada’s first ever women’s gold medal in bobsled at the 2010 winter Olympics in Vancouver. The parade also had Miss Canada, Miss Teen Canada and various other beauty pageant winners, including Junior Miss. Some of the featured groups in the parade include the Malvern Marching Band, the Shriners’ Musical Train, the Tian Guo Marching Band of Canada, the York Lions Steel Band, The Toronto Fire Dept Pipes and Drums, a Zamboni from Ted Reeve Community Arena, members of the local roller derby league, four-legged friends and all sorts of clowns and other costumed characters, inclu...

Happy Easter, it looks like Patio Season is in Full Bloom

The good weather is here and people are dressing in more colourful and bright clothing. A walk along Queen’s Quay is just as colourful as walking along Queen Street East. As I walked around Harbourfront at lunch Thursday, I noticed several people not wearing jackets. As I walked, I too felt that I should have left my jacket back at my downtown Toronto office space. Today while most of my friends are enjoying the first day of the long weekend, I was working at the executive suites Toronto where I have my office for rent Toronto. As I looked out the office window of the 18th floor of the Toronto Star building, I noticed that there were a lot of people walking and riding bicycles along the harbour. I convinced myself that taking a thirty  minute break would be ok. Since the cafeteria wa...

Its Been a Real Charlie Sheen Weekend

It began on Friday when I was told about Charlie Sheens tweets, it seems that he was tweeting about walking from his hotel (The Ritz Carlton, Toronto) to his show venue Massey Hall to raise awareness for Bi Polar disorders. I decided to get my camera ready and head down early to get a good spot in front of the hotel. I decided to wear cargo shorts and a bowling shirt inspired by Charlie’s character on “Two and half Men”, but that was my mistake. Charlie did not emerge from the Ritz Carlton hotel until just before 7 PM, almost an hour after his walk was scheduled to begin. When he came out, he surveyed the crowd from under the hotel awning and headed over to a waiting SUV. Instead of getting into the SUV, he got up on the hood of the truck to talk to the crowd. Immediately...

The Charlie Sheen in Toronto Show Has Mixed Reviews

I was not able to get tickets to either of the sold out shows with Charlie Sheen and Russel Peters. I did read some good reviews of Charlie Sheen’s Toronto show and some not so good reviews from the media, but was more interested in the reviews of people who attended. I finally found some reviews from attendees, they too were mixed. Some people wanted to see the show and be there when he bombed, they were mildly disappointed that it did not end in a total fiasco. Other people went to see how Russel Peters could help the show and they were very impressed. Then there were people who went just because it was Charlie Sheen on stage and were waiting for his controversial antics, they were ecstatic when Charlie admitted the first celebrity he “Banged” was his Ferris Bueller’s D...
