Whether you’re an entrepreneur, freelancer, or remote employee, working away from the rest of your team can create unique challenges. Here’s a look at our top tools for working independently:
This video conferencing tool was built for professionals. This software has easily accessible features such as screen sharing and conference calls. It’s also quick and easy to download and invite someone to join a meeting – just shoot them an email!
There’s no reason for you to lug an enormous printer/scanner around. While the Blue Inc. space has its own scanner, you might want to keep a portable scanner handy for work trips and your home office. You can easily send contracts and important documents that still look professional.
Whether you want an exercise ball desk chair or a standing desk, you are in complete control of your work space. Keep you furniture comfortable not only for your well-being, but also for your productivity. While you’re at it, don’t forget to take a walk now and then. Professionals who work from home often don’t spend as much time standing and walking around the office, so it’s up to you to get your blood flowing.
If you’re working remotely, odds are you’ll have to call in to the home office quite frequently. Invest in a nice headset so you don’t get a kink in your neck from holding the phone to your ear.
When your team is scattered, it’s hard to build a sense of camaraderie. Sharing funny comments and questions throughout the day is key to a good energy. You might opt for the simple G-Chat, but your team can also opt for services such as Slack and HipChat.
No more video calls in your messy home office, dogs barking during phone calls, or going stir crazy from sitting alone for so long. Coworking spaces offer resources, energy, and environment to your daily work experience. If you’re interested in coworking, learn more about Blue Inc. here.
