What is Building Remotely?

For the past few years, remote work has been increasingly on the rise. More and more companies are finding how out remote work can fundamentally transform their companies and teams. With the COVID-19 pandemic, remote work moved from being a luxury to a necessity. 
That doesn’t mean building a thriving remote business is easy. Far from it. Leaders have been going remote for years by experimenting and learning from new tactics. Whether you are taking your office company remote (or perhaps recently did), or you are building a remote company from the ground up, you shouldn’t start from square one. 
Unfortunately, while there is a lot of info out there on the benefits of remote work, there isn’t much instruction. Enter Building Remotely, your guide to building and scaling a successful remote company.
