The world is abuzz with a mix of COVID-19, pandemic and everything remote. Indeed, more than ever before, there has been a surge in all things virtual as businesses, individuals, parents, students and entrepreneurs operate indoors and online. Yet, for some of us who have lived and loved the remote life, this started off as a choice. For millions more, the remote life has been brought on with much force. For even millions more, there is still a sense of panic trying to navigate not just a physical movement indoors but the mental capacity, tools and skillsets that are required to effectively master #ThatRemoteLife.
Since then, I have had several queries ranging from being motivated to work remotely to managing distractions while working remotely and working remotely with children. The increasing queries have therefore led to The Remote life week which pulls together speakers with diverse backgrounds to share a wide range of information to encourage and enable persons to function effectively while working remotely.
By collating initial feedback from a diverse cross section of persons, our Remote Life Week will explore diverse topics including:
- Managing Distractions while working remotely
- Tools for working effectively
- Working remotely with a family
- Educating remotely and Homeschooling your children.
On a more global scale, The Remote week interviews will also feature insights into working effectively from wherever and working effectively with persons who are different from you or from other cultures. The latter two are particularly important for any business, individual or entrepreneur who hopes to conduct business effectively across borders and cultures.
