Companies all over the world have been forced to transition into remote work, and a lot of us are still trying to figure out how to make remote work, work.

At Jostle, we made the switch five days ago. We’re in a better position than most to make the switch. Most Jostlers already work remotely occasionally and we use our own internal communication platform so we have the tools in place. But now we’re all isolated in our homes and working hard to try to maintain the culture that we’ve worked so hard to build. That’s the hardest part. We all miss our people.

At BestSelf, they’ve been fully remote for five years. They’re Yoda, we’re mere Padawans. In this episode I had a chance to pick the brain of a remote work veteran, their Co-Founder & CEO, Cathryn. Her overarching advice? Get more intentional with your communication, be more flexible, and understand what your daily priorities are. You’ll stay focused, productive, and engaged—all things that’re critical to keep work and connection flowing.

With this crazy world we’re living in, you’ll want to give this one a listen.
