That time has come that your business has outgrown your home office and you need real office space (even if it is shared or only part-time) that has a professional business address. Your best choice is a downtown office business centre that has several options. When we talk about office space options at a business centre, three primary ones come to mind: Private offices, semi-private offices and shared office space/coworking offices. For the purposes of this article, we will be talking about adjusting to shared office space/coworking offices – since that will probably be your best option when you first move out of your home office. Shared office space is also your best option in terms of flexibility regarding when you can utilize the space. Why? You pay only a small monthly fee for unlimited access during regular business hours. With coworking, you become a member and choose from various […]

Millennials (aka Generation Y) are those born between 1982 and 1993 are proving to be a very entrepreneurial generation. But the next generation may be even more ambitious than them! Enter Gen Z (those born between 1994 and 2010) or what is called “The internet generation” – who are by far the most tech-savvy, connected and self-educated group. Unlike Millennials who love the gig economy, research is showing Gen Z want steady paycheques. What also makes Gen Z different? They claim to be both more accepting and more rebellious. Rebellion was pretty much absent for Millennials in their youth, as they seemed to have had a very shiny outlook on things. Gen Z is upset about the system that they’re inheriting – so it seems rebellion is back. The first members of Gen Z will be graduating from university in just a few years, and market researchers and trend forecasters […]

There comes a time when every small business needs to move out of a home office, or at least have a professional business address. When that time comes for your small business, you need to decide if you want a virtual office or a brick-and-mortar office. In order to make this decision, you need to understand the value of both options and see what works best for your business. One of the first steps in deciding between a virtual office or brick-and-mortar office is to establish your needs and your budget. Do you want to spend $30/month for just a business address, $75/month for an address and phone service, $225/month for a shared office, $350/month semi-private office, $495/month for a private office or $900/month for an upscale window office? The next step is considering options if you need to meet clients in person. If you expect potential customers will be […]

Alternative Office Solutions

What is an Alternative Office Solution? Simply put, it is a new type of office space design and philosophy that removes a lot of the headaches and expenses of traditional office space with much more emphasis on “collaboration space” – or as we like to call it “we space.” At first it was thought to be just a type of office space suitable for tech companies and young start-ups. Increasingly however, alternative office space is becoming mainstream with millennials actually preferring this new philosophy of office design. Typically, alternative office spaces are business centres – some sort of business incubator set-up where two companies “share” office spaces and leasing expenses often in traditional office spaces and/or co-working centres (which are basically business centres with less support services and business equipment provided by the centre). Another driving force behind the trend to alternative space is a changing workplace where employees are […]

How to Create a Great Place to Work

It is no surprise that when a ranking of Canada’s 100 best workplaces was recently released, that Google and AOL Canada (Large and Multinational Category) held on to the their top spots in the annual study by The Great Workplace, which is a global research, consulting and training firm. However, these types of studies usually mean nothing to an entrepreneur who is self employed with a much smaller business and staff. What should a small business owner do to ensure that he or she is providing a great place to work for themselves or any employees they may have? A research study may or may not exist that reveals what makes for the best small business workplaces – or even a list of the best small businesses to work for. However, there is plenty of information on the Internet to help a small business make its workplace better and more […]

Having shared office space Toronto can be good in many ways, but let us first tell you what Toronto shared offices are. There are many businesses and entrepreneurs who need office space Toronto, but they do not need a full-time downtown Toronto office space. What they need is a desk to work from (to do paperwork or administrative tasks) and a place to receive business mail and meet customers.
