Business Owner

Our job is to help you get your business off the ground and give you the tools to make it a success. It’s not a private club – you can see that as you walk down any road or search on the internet and see the small shops, restaurants, services and small businesses of all types.

Very often, it is people who hate working for someone else, can’t find rewarding work at all and / or are having a very tough time in the workforce that start businesses and succeed. Did you know that more than 50% of billionaires never finished school?

1. Earn extra money in your spare time.

By starting a business in your downtime, you will be making more money in addition to your regular salary. How great is that? When you are ready to go at it full time, it gets even better. Your income and all of the other benefits of owning a business kick in.

2. Determine your own schedule.

You can fit running your small business into your schedule perfectly. This means you can do the work you like and are the best at, and you can choose when and how you work so that you get the results you are looking for. Flexibility to suit your life.

3. Pay lower taxes and keep more income.

Many things you already pay for can be deducted from your taxable income. This means that you will pay less tax and keep more of your hard earned money. Just a few of the hundreds of allowable deductions are cell phones, computers, home expenses (such as rent, power and heat) and car expenses.

4. Do what you love - every day.

You will make money by focusing on what you want to do and what you are good at doing. Some people know what these things are, but many of us need help figuring out our true skills and talents or how to turn them into a business. Everyone is good at something. When you build a business around that – look out world!

5. You are in direct control of your life.

You can work from home, work with like-minded people and make as much money as you want. When you are the boss and you make all the decisions, you are in control of your freedom – and that is called “empowerment”. Now you call the shots.

6. Feel pride in doing something great with your life.

You will experience an incredible high running your own business, taking on challenges, succeeding and earning more. For many people though, success is feeling pride in the work they do, and the difference they make in their own life and in other people’s lives.

7. Build something that is truly yours.

This is your business and you can take it where you want. Every day you are building your future by generating a growing income and possibly employing other people to increase your success. Ultimately, you can pass the business on to your family, or sell it for a significant sum depending on your retirement plans.

8. Take a long vacation whenever you want.

Because of the flexibility of your schedule and your control on how hard you work and when, you can determine when and for how long you take vacations or extra time away for family activities. Working less hard is definitely NOT a good reason to start a business – but earning more time off for your hard work IS.

9. Learn new skills and challenge yourself.

Being an entrepreneur will be a challenge, and without exception small business owners develop new skills, capabilities and confidence. You have the opportunity to decide your direction and the projects you take on. You can literally do anything you want to do, as long as you have decided it will be a good business.

10. Choose the people you work with.

As you build your business you will need to hire or associate with others to accomplish your goals. You decide who you want to work, will add the most value, will complement your style and fill in missing skills. Success in business is always easier and more fun when you like, and can count on the people around you.

Did You Know It’s a Big Club?

When you start a small business, you are not alone. You will be a member of the biggest business “club” in Canada as there are over 1MM small businesses in Canada. Thousands of new businesses are started every year right here in the GTA. Why? Because they have discovered all of the benefits that we mentioned here on this site.

98% of Canadian businesses have fewer than 100 employees, and small businesses employ about 5 million people! So you will now be included in the most important business group in Canada.

3. HST Benefits.

By registering for HST, the government refunds to you all the HST you paid on business expenses.

In Ontario, businesses that have more than $30,000 in revenue must charge HST. But we recommend that every business charge it from the beginning – because it saves you money! Its easy, you just register for an account and start charging the tax. Keep track of the HST on all your expenses as well, and then you remit to the government difference between what you collect and what you spent.

So whether you are making profit or not, it is a big benefit to you as you can see below.
