Pioneer Q & A
How did you start working remotely? Was it something you sought out or stumbled into?
I have always been a traveler and an adventurer. I came into business development (mostly be accident) back at the turn of the century. I spent many years working with entrepreneurs, small businesses, and large corporations. I found that most startups were driven by that same adventuring spirit that I have, so I put my talents and experience to work helping others do what they love.
Do you still work remotely?
What do you do for work and for fun?
For work, I support small businesses through online marketing and internal development. For fun, I am an avid Scouter and spend as much time camping, hiking, and adventuring with my family as possible.
What cities do you call “home” and why do you want to be a Workfrom ambassador?
Corpus Christi, TX. I work exclusively with small and startup business, many of which are still working from home. I love the idea of co-working, and we have some great places to do it here! Workfrom provides a resource that is desperately needed by folks like me and the businesses I work with.
How did you find out about Workfrom and why do you want to bring it to your area?
Corpus Christi really needs a strong informal network of small businesses owners and a better understanding of what resources are available. I first found Workfrom through a link somewhere. Honestly, no idea where, but I loved it.
Any tips you’d like to share for others wanting to or already working remotely?
Don’t feel like you need to be tethered. Everything you need from an office is available through online services. Your business is only as small as you want it to be.
Any tips for those wanting to visit and work from your area?
Make sure to catch the sunrise over the marina.
What do you like most about Workfrom, and what would you like to see above all else come from us in the next year?
I love the ability to search for reliable work spaces from my location wherever I am. I would like to see more cities, more locations, and Workfrom local groups.
