When I decided to spend a year working remotely at Flow, I couldn’t picture any potential downside. Like many, I’d spent every day of my adult life beguiled by the dream that gets packaged with working remote: live anywhere, make your own schedule. Keep your job that you love, but travel whenever you want — as long as your work gets done. Uh, what’s the catch? Well, reporting from a year later, that dream has sort of come true, but there are a lot of important things about working remotely that I wish I’d known. I’ll say this: it’s not always easy.
