BBC Virtual Friday 27 March 2020 – EmerPrep Creative Business Strategies

Welcome to vBBC Friday, The Cloud E-space Edition
“Staying Connected, Going Virtual” Part 2, w/ Charlie King
Interesting times call for creative changes.
And for those joining us in our virtual OfficeXpats e-space for the first time, & for any remaining Zoom questions, we’ll start with a brief review of Zoom’s virtual meeting platform. 
     Then we will consider together:
  1. What’s the best thing about working from home (garage, cellar, cave), and why?
  2. What’s the hardest thing about working from home, cave, bunker, and why?
  3. Share one or two “productivity hacks” you’ve created in response to working from home, nuclear bunker, wood shed, old motor home parked at lonely road end.
