What is one perk of working from home that you really appreciate?
One perk of working from home that I really enjoy is wearing sweatpants all day. Every day. They're very comfortable. I do not miss wearing real work pants at all. 100% would take sweatpants again any time.
What is one piece of advice you would give to someone who has never worked remotely before?
One piece of advice I would give to someone who has never worked remotely before is to really get your place set up. I have a little zone that's just like my "work from home zone" and it's super helpful to have your own space for working. That's free of distractions. It really helps you get into the mindset of okay, now I'm at work.
What is one piece of "work from home" equipment you couldn't live without?
One piece of work from home equipment I couldn't live without. It's my laptop riser. All the all the ergonomic stuff is real. You have to make sure your screen and your chair, and your table, your keyboard are all in the right position. That will make a huge difference in the long-run for your back health. Your wrist health. Huge, huge deal. Make sure you get set up correctly.
