Nervous about Remote Work

For the first time in seven years, I will be working remotely starting next week. I started the company from home, and after a little less than a year hired people to start working with me in my apartment. Three years of apartment work later, Coalition moved into an actual office in Culver City. I am nervous now about going back to remote work because I want to make sure I am able to keep my motivation up at a high level. I also want to make sure I am effectively able to manage my Culver City team remotely.

Some ideas I have to make this work better:

  • Make a point to call a team member on Hangouts each day and talk for at least a few minutes
  • Try to visit the office at least once a week
  • Have other outside social interactions with people
  • Designate a schedule of work, exercise, social interaction
  • Set up regular lunches with my CEO friends in LA
  • Ask Laurel to help me be accountable
  • Have family visit me so I don’t get lonely
  • Track my KPIs
