More Than Just Tax Returns

For several years now, I have been working closely with Brian Bossin, my company’s accountant. I first heard of Brian through my lawyer, who knew about my frustrations in dealing with large accounting firms, and never feeling like a priority. In one case, an accounting firm informed me that my company was not yet big enough to require their level of services.

When I finally met with Brian, I immediately liked his approach. It was clear that he would be a good fit for a smaller business, would offer genuine accounting and business advice for my company, assist me when I had very quick questions, and only change me for the major work.

What makes Brian different from other accountants and their firms is that he is reasonable and does not nickel and dime his clients to death. Unlike calling up a big accounting firm, and being charged by the minute, Brian understands that excellent customer service goes hand in hand with building better business relationships, and that a long term relationship is more valuable and profitable.

Brian works at a small boutique organization, and specializes in a variety of industries. Whether you need someone for personal or business related accounting, Brian is your go-to person. Your business can range from small to large or from industry to industry, and he will find the best way to help you regardless. He is always a great joy with which to work, and I highly recommend contacting him…especially before the busy tax season!

On Your Mark, Get Set, Go!

For several years now, my daughter has been excelling in track and field at school. She enjoys the competition and teamwork involved in track and field so much that she has become involved in regional meets. However, the regional meets only occur every once in a while, and my daughter wants to do track and field on a regular basis.

The Faculty of Kinesiology & Physical Education at the University of Toronto offers a series of programs called Junior Blues, which involve lessons for such sports as track and field, basketball, volleyball, skating, gymnastics, dance, swimming, and skating. Appropriately titled, Tracktivities, this program focuses on track and field and involves the three main areas of running, jumping and throwing. The goal of the program is to teach the proper techniques and concepts in track and field so that kids could either move on to more advanced levels of track and field or transfer those skills into other sports.

The staff members are just as amazing as the programs. They always do their best to create a supportive and inclusive environment for the kids. The support for the parents in the registration process is amazing as well. The schedules are very flexible, and the staff members do their best to find the best fit for both the kids and their parents.

Other people who are part of the Faculty of Kinesiology & Physical Education include: Varsity coaches, Varsity staff members, people who coach as a career, and occasionally elite and Olympic athletes. Being around such professionals and athletes inspires the kids because it shows them what they can aspire to achieve and teaches them about other areas such as dedication, commitment and focus, but placing fun above all else.

Whether your child is learning the basics of a sport, or training to go beyond regionals in track and field, the Faculty of Kinesiology & Physical Education’s Junior Blues program offers something inspiring for everyone at a reasonable price.
