    100% remote for me for about 10 years, on site freelance prior to that. I like it a lot. We spend a lot of time chatting via Slack, iMessage etc.

    What are the benefits?

    I love not having to deal with the daily grind of rush hour, and being kept to a strict routine. I love being able to go for a walk to clear my head when needed. I feel like I’m more productive.

    What are some of the challenges that come up?

    Communication. I think different skills are required when you’re not meeting in person. Serendipitous conversations have to be replaced by a constant stream of updates, and more intentional communication.
