In this series of blogs, we’re exploring why people are choosing to move downtown to be closer to their office space Toronto and enjoy the urban experience of living in the city’s core. We touched on the fact that it is no longer just young single professionals choosing to move downtown, but young married couples who are thinking of starting a family. Even existing families with children are now moving downtown! One of the virtual office clients who was in the office last week to use one of our boardroom rentals, mentioned that his wife was expecting their first child and they have no plans to move away from downtown where he has his business and she has her job.

This week we did a few blogs about Big Data that got some attention, but not as much as other series we have done. So we will look at other topics for future blogs. This writer was thinking about this while watching his guilty pleasure “Big Brother Canada” and thought it would be funny to see how the game would play out in his Toronto office space. The game of “Office Space Big Boss” would be a homage to our bloggers favourite reality show “Big Brother.” In “Office Space Big Boss” 10 entrepreneurs would be competing not for a large sum of cash or a job, but instead for a corner window office to run their business from for one year. These entrepreneurs would not be locked inside a Team Space office, but instead would have to just work in the office for 12 to 23 hours a day for 6 weeks […]

In the latter part of the 20th Century, smoking in offices and other public places like restaurants, bars, malls and convention centres was banned in most cities in North America and other countries around the world. These smoking bans forced those who still smoked to go outside their Toronto office space to have a cigarette. Many Toronto office buildings found that people were congregating around the entrances to buildings, so “designated smoking areas” were created away from the doorways and entrances. With smokers forced to congregate in these designated smoking areas started, it made for a perfect climate for people who did not know each other to begin to talk to each other. After all, most people are not going to just stand there and puff while staring straight ahead. They tend to make small talk with others around them. Often the conversation starts around smokers being the current “bad people” […]

Call it a sign of the times. More older Canadians than ever before are starting their own business at a time when we might expect them to retire, or even after they retire. While most of these businesses will likely be home-based, many are started using office space Toronto, just to get the seniors out of their homes. As mentioned in our previous blog, people between 55 and 64 represent one of the largest group surges in entrepreneurial activity by age (just behind those who are 35 to 44). There are several factors for this trend, including increased longevity. But probably the single largest factor is economic. These entrepreneurs are at the age when they must look at their retirement finances, but also look at how they will keep busy and active in their retirement years. This combination of economic need and the growing number of baby boomers that are […]

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.
