Pioneer Q & A
How did you start working remotely? Was it something you sought out or stumbled into?
I am an entrepreneur in the consulting industry. I specialize in helping companies develop their business internationally. Whether they would like to move their business to the U.S., Europe or Asia, I can help with the legalities, the intellectual property, the market studies and the general marketing/communication. Since most of my clients are in the U.S., working remotely became part of my lifestyle.
Do you still work remotely?
Yes. Almost every day
What do you do for work and for fun?
I help a lot of start-ups and law firms establish an online and physical presence internationally. For fun, I usually bike, dance, sing, eating delicious food, running and I love reading books.
What cities do you call “home” and why do you want to be a Workfrom ambassador?
How did you find out about Workfrom and why do you want to bring it to your area?
I was visiting Austin on a work mission last month and discovered it by talking to a few freelancers in a coffee shop. I think the idea is fantastic and very useful to promote remote working and meeting fellow entrepreneurs.
Any tips you’d like to share for others wanting to or already working remotely?
Try to find a remote working buddy. It gets pretty lonely otherwise.
Any tips for those wanting to visit and work from your area?
Paris is new to the whole working from cafés. But such places exist and we should keep encouraging it.
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 like that it gives us a map of available cool locations with details that matters for the remote worker -power outlets, wifi, seating etc.
