I like entrepreneurs and always want to hear the stories of how they started their businesses.
Live-work space often ideally suits an individual who has a dream to start their own business and starts to move towards that dream. Live-work space balances keeping expenses low while having workshop space to create your product and grow your business. I have seen yoga studios, painting galleries and esthetician services all thrive in live-work space in Toronto.
In our Muskoka building we have a talented woodworking entrepreneur who creates these beautiful carved custom wooden signs. He has this somewhat messy studio with a huge laser machine running constantly where he both lives and works and the space is perfect for him.
If you are thinking of starting up your own business, it is important to keep expenses low. A live-work studio is often a good choice at the time of your launch to permit you to afford your living expenses while investing time in growing your business.

A company owner was asked a question, "How do you motivate your employees to be so punctual?"
He smiled & replied, "It's simple. I have 30 employees and 29 free parking spaces. One is paid parking." ;-)
