How to make remote work great

We have arrived at the Golden Age of work. The learning curve is getting smaller, and the implementation is getting more creative. 5 years ago remote companies were seen as “risky”. Now, the opposite is true. 
Remote work makes your team more productive and their lives more pleasant. It will help your company attract and retain the best talent from all over the world. It’s good for the health of your employees, and the health of the environment. It saves everyone money. 
Every aspect of building your company will be easier if you build remotely – from developing a healthy culture to scaling your growth. Building and growing a company from a physical location is a self-imposed handicap that few startups can afford.
What started as a luxury benefit became a necessity. It’s now a requirement from much of the world’s top talent. Remote work went from a policy to a philosophy. And like any personal philosophy, it must be adapted to the individual or group who adopts it. If you haven’t yet constructed your remote philosophy, now is the time. 
This book will guide you through that thought process.
