Episode 81 tackles a topic that many of us experienced at some point in the last year.

In fact, it’s very likely that you’re still living this lifestyle – and will be for some time.

I’m talking about remote work.

Working from home. Homing from work. Blurry boundaries, nonexistent commutes, questionable dress codes and… coworkers that want to sit in your lap and would like to have another snack now, please.

Today’s guest has been living the remote lifestyle for most of her career, so you could say that she’s an expert on how to work well from anywhere. So when many of us migrated from our offices to our kitchen tables to start working remotely in Spring of 2020, she got to work pouring all of her remote work expertise and productivity tips into a book that just hit shelves on April 27th. The book is called “Remote Inc.: How to Thrive at Work…Wherever You Are.”
