Everyone has their go-to words that make our conversations easier. In most industries, businesses will develop acronyms and abbreviations to make even conversations more efficient, cause you know, capitalism. But this is more a post about some fun words that we've been using around Experience House than it is a piece against economic theories.
What happens when leaders in experience design–facilitators, event producers, technologists, musicians, and more– unite under one roof? 2 weeks in, we're starting to find out. So far, Experience House is off to great start. Needless to say, the group we've assembled has fallen into a groove that's collaborative, supportive, inspiring, and overall full of love.
For those new to the remote work life, you may have discovered some common challenges while adapting to a new office set up. Welcome to the club :) As a nomad that has been working remotely for 5 years now, I have a compiled a list of my must have remote office essentials that I simply cannot work without. So whether you are on the road or working from home, consider this list of things to add to your tool box.
Listen here, I am by no means someone with the capacity to solve the everyone's problems. I don’t believe there is any one person that is. And yet it seems that we are dispositioned to look for and support someone to do our hard work for us. Or at least tell us what to do and how to do it. If it works, we call them a hero, if not, we can shame them accordingly. But I just don’t see the purpose of this hierarchical system anymore.
Another blog about nomad life! Fret not, I hope you'll find some level of entertainment as I share a very personal, well kept checklist I use when finding a Nomad friendly city.

As a digital nomad there are many things to consider before taking the leap into remote work. This list will cover the ins and outs of insurance, accommodations, flights, travel cards and working spaces. I will also cover packing, marketing yourself, nomadic communities and mental health.
As we witness the global influence of Covid-19, it’s becoming clear that the world after the pandemic will be radically different from the one we knew before. This disease, without a vaccine, may never completely go away. and industries like hospitality, entertainment, education and transportation will have to rethink their models in order to survive. So where do cospaces come in? Though these spaces solve some of our larger affordable housing concerns and are combatting the loneliness epidemic, is there a larger need to rethink urban development after Covid-19? We believe so.
We all reach that point in our lives where running away to a tropical island or mountain side cabin seems like the only escape from the mundane. Whether it's from overworking, burnout, or simply looking to find a new perspective on life, taking a sabbatical is never a bad idea. There are plenty of modern sabbatical ideas in today's interconnected age. 1 month or 1 year, I predict a sabbatical could do you some real good in such chaotic times.
Though I planned to write this post before the Covid-19 outbreak, it seems only appropriate now to share some tips and tricks you can use to manage remote teams.
