April 27, 2020
Silver lining alert: it’s likely, this forced slow down will help us all be more comfortable with technology and working remotely. There are distinct advantages to being “remote ready”, including positioning your firm to take on those lucrative, out of town projects. Interior designer Rebecca Ward shares her strategies for successfully working remotely.
In this episode we learn:
- embracing technology has advantages in efficiency
- a business phone line (not your cell) is the best bet
- access your financials from anywhere
- track tasks more efficiently
- share and access all client and business files regardless file size
- instant, searchable conversations with your team are possible
- track every minute of the task you are working on and export it to a log sheet invoice
Make decisions for your business based on a place of POWER, not fear…. and knowledge is power! Be open to change and spend time learning something that will help you serve your clients better and give you time back in your day.
A list of some of Rebecca’s fave apps:
