Dear Coworking Space Owners...

I’ve been remote working for 12 years and I love the explosion of coworking spaces that have opened over the past few years. But so many coworking spaces get the basics wrong… So what follows is a simple (and I’d argue to say obvious) checklist for creating a great coworking space that entrepreneurs like myself enjoy working from.

How I failed landing a remote position

I started looking for a remote position, telecommuting in other words, as a software engineer last November. It took me 3 months to apply to ~150 job descriptions and none of them was a successful hire. Nevertheless, I now have a great job and I would like to share that experience with you. I have prepared a spreadsheet listing anonymous applications… I will also share my cover letter and how I approached the remote job hunting.

Take Naps at Work. Apologize to No One.

Restfulness and recharging can take a back seat to the perception and appearance of productivity. It’s easier to stay on a virtual hamster wheel of activity by immediately responding to every email than it is to measure aggregate productivity over a greater period of time. But a growing field of occupational and psychological research is building the case for restfulness in pursuit of greater productivity.
