If you have ever worked on a beach before, you know that having an amazing view can be awe-inspiring and get those creative juices flowing. The views from Team Space 103 are expansive, overlooking the recently completed Waterfront renewal, mentioned by The New York Times as one of the top places to explore in Toronto (which has been ranked 7th best city to visit in 2016!). This summer will be humming with excitement right outside your new workspace. You can commute on your bike along the shore, have a picnic lunch in the gardens by the waterfront and catch a Blue Jays game after work, with the Rogers centre and Union station a 5 minute walk away. The diverse and liveliest parts of the city are at your fingertips!

Come and see for yourself what Toronto’s thriving South Core has to offer. We promise you won’t be disappointed!

UN International Day of Happiness!

, , , , , , , ,

It feels good to be happy right?

Why not share the happiness at WaterPark Place this Friday and join us for some fun activities and treats in the Mezzanine and Food Court!

Happiness is what we all strive for – what the media, society and every self-help book and guru out there tells us to seek.

So how do we truly reach a state of happiness and stay there?

Without the down times in life, it would be hard to enjoy the up times.

It would be very odd if we all walked around like the Stepford wives, perpetually smiling…

stepford wives

International Day of Happiness celebrated on March 20th,  is not about superficial and materialistic happiness but rather it is about recognizing that ‘progress’ should be about increasing human happiness and wellbeing, not just growing the economy.

“In 2011, the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution which recognised happiness as a “fundamental human goal” and called for “a more inclusive, equitable and balanced approach to economic growth that promotes the happiness and well-being of all peoples”.

In 2012 the first ever UN conference on Happiness took place and the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution which decreed that the International Day of Happiness would be observed every year on 20 March. It was celebrated for the first time in 2013″.

It comes as no surprise that the number one way people describe experiencing happiness is from giving and doing things for others.

Growing Your Business From Home

, , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

A virtual office is:

All the benefits of a physical office, without having to physically be there! (When you do get lonely though, you are welcome to join us in our coworking space if you need some social interaction and a change of scenery…and coffee!)

co-working (1)

A virtual office is great for:

  • Work from home individuals who would like to maintain a professional appearance and have their administrative duties handled professionally.
  • Small businesses that want to save costs on office space.
  • Medium and large businesses looking to expand into a new market.
  • Business individuals who need to meet clients in a professional environment on a semi-regular basis.
  • Businesses that conduct interviews on an irregular schedule.
  • Independent workers (freelancers, lawyers, and family-run businesses) that want to save time and cut employee costs.
  • When permanent space for all staff doesn’t make sense, but a central address and location for client meetings is needed and will ensure your business runs effectively.

Virtual tenants can have all their phone calls answered by on-site receptionists, and mail forwarded to anywhere in the world, from our high profile downtown location. Whether your company is located locally, nationally, or abroad, The Rostie Group’s Virtual Office solution can help you build a truly “borderless” business.

Virtual-Offices

Come visit us to meet your ‘virtual assistant’. We have real people who you will come to know very well, handling all of your mail, greeting your clients on the phone in your company name or in person.

Cut overhead costs by only coming into the office when you need to meet a client who just arrived via Porter airline, for videoconferencing, or having a team meeting. The quaint Baltic, Caspian and Lake Joe rooms boast beautiful views of downtown Toronto.

Baltic - Bright and Daytime

At The Rostie Group it is all-inclusive. You receive a discounted rate for meeting rooms, the ability to use coworking space and invitations to all networking events, lunch ‘n’ learns and training sessions. Plus when you are ready to move into a physical office, your transition will be seamless! Your business can grow within The Rostie Group community, from virtual office to coworking to long-term office resident, your business will thrive and grow without having to change your business address!

We love our work community and are involved in local events taking place along the Waterfront all year long! Don’t miss the Spectacle of Lights beginning on November 28th! #itsbetterbythewater

Ultimately the best reason for having a virtual office – at the very least a mailing address –  is that it enables you to focus on developing your business, sales and client base –  avoiding the stress of day-to-day operations .

Check out all of the flexible packages available here. We can custom build a package to suit your business needs! Want 10 hours of coworking with a mailing address and live receptionist? We can build a membership just for you! Need a meeting room every week for 4 hours, plus a Bay St. address for all your packages to be delivered to? We do that!
