Business Owner Says Working at Home Is an Acquired Skill
Lessons Learned from Experience
Many of you are experiencing work at home for the first time, and without the luxury of months of planning like those at our marketing firm, TSM Design, did when we decided to go virtual on Jan. 1, 2019.
We are now in the midst of a global pandemic, and socially distancing people is the only way to flatten the COVID-19 curve. (Now that’s a sentence I would not have imagined writing, let alone living through. But here we are.)
These are challenging times for everyone. Our concept of normalcy is changing daily. We barely have time to catch our breath before there are new rules of engagement. Businesses have gone from limiting the size of meetings to prohibiting travel and work-at-home orders.
During TSM Design’s morning Zoom on March 16, we started the meeting discussing the impact the virus was having on our lives. Our conversation then turned to all of you who are just starting to work at home. We wondered if we could be helpful sharing what we’ve learned during these past 15 months.
