At my client site 5days a week (gps) , and home office has little to no consulting presence. Rolling off around August and looking for a supply chain related project (commercial). Advice!
Anyone meet clients at home?
I'm an RIA, and my home office is much nicer than my office. Unfortunately it doesn't have a separate entrance and you have to walk through the living room/kitchen.
We moved last week and I got a dedicated home office (aka not a desk in my bedroom) hooray! I bought a cat bed so my girl could keep me company while I work and today she used it for the first time.
Which office chair would you recommend?
If I move to a town a few hours away from my home office, how often am I going to be expected to go into the office on fridays? Seriously considering a move to the beach for my own sanity
Assuming we’re all working in the office, how important is it to work from your home office? Should I expect my team members, manager, coach to also be based out of the same office? Finally, if I wanted to occasionally work out of another office near me, is that allowed? Thanks!

Fellow Consultants, just gone share this because someone shared it with me. There’s an app called Duet - allows you to use your iPad as a second monitor. Stop traveling with those second monitor screens from Amazon. 😂 Ipad is lighter and you can watch Netflix while traveling. Travel smarter.
Standing desk or desk converter. I live in a small apartment so I am hesitant to get another piece of furniture, hence leaning toward desk converter. Can someone please share their insights?
Did any of you buy home office chair & desk from autonomous ai? Any review will be appreciated.￼ I see great reviews.
Bought an Uplift standing desk that arrived Friday. Something is giving an error so it will not raise out of the bottom 22 inch height. Called them and was told it has to go to warrenty team who doesn't work weekends and takes 2-3 days to review the case.
TLDR : I bought a thousand dollar oversized coffee table......
Now that the cases are rising and i feel like wfh will be here forever. I am looking into my wfh setup. I have standing desk, ergo chair, monitors, and keyboard. What other things i can add to improve my homeoffice? Is footrest worth buying?
Anyone take a full time remote position? How do you like it? Does the company invest your at home office set up? Did you get a wework or equiv membership to feel like going into an office?
Good morning, all. I look forward to chatting today. I thought I would open our conversation with a photo of my home office, which has gotten a lot more use in the last two weeks than ever before.
