Life is easy- a laptop and good internet connection is all you need. Needless to say, it isn’t bad sitting in your home office and still have the feeling of a job well done and your salary deposited.
If you are planning to turn virtual, remember:
•Plan it well. Have a good laptop, good speed internet (keep a back up or use USB internet connections for travelling).
•A portable hard drive with you, to back up your work. Or use virtual backups.
•Coordinate well with your team.
•Make sure your team has Skype id’s to communicate frequently.
•Share your work style; it’s important for people to have a close working relationship to get work done virtually and without hiccups.
•Spread out your breaks. Plan your day well. Keep a home office or a space where you work every day away from clutter and noise.
•It’s a state of mind. Don’t let people tell you it can’t be done.
