    Work Locations for Remote Workers and Digital Nomads

    Work Locations for Remote Workers and Digital Nomads

    As a remote worker, I like variety in my workspaces and find that I am more effective at getting things done, depending on the environment. In this episode, I share my approach to choosing work locations, diving into the benefits and drawbacks of each. Sometimes that beach or poolside work locale makes sense.

    Bonus Episode! Indie Creator Studio: Context Switching - Managing Our Time, Energy and Attention When Moving Between Projects

    Bonus Episode! Indie Creator Studio: Context Switching - Managing Our Time, Energy and Attention When Moving Between Projects

    Indie Creator Studio is an opportunity to “peek behind the curtain” and view the lives of indie creators as they navigate the waters of bringing their ideas to life. Each episode dives into different aspects of the journey, from the struggles involved in getting things done to the tools and tips that have helped us along the way.

    In our latest episode, we talk about “Context Switching”, the process of moving between different projects/areas of our lives, and the time, energy, and attention required to do so. We share our processes for trying to maintain seamless shifts between projects. Along the way, we uncover some valuable insights that can help reduce the frustration and anxiety of unexpected interruptions.

    If you’re a creator or aspire to be, we invite you to come along.
