The important things about working from home are 1.) Keeping track of time (mainly so you don't eat lunch at 4:30 p.m. and dinner at 2:00 a.m.) and 2.) Communicating effectively with your team(s). If you can master these two things, the rest will click.

Can I work in the UK during this time after visa approval and before I move to the U.S. as I wait to find an apartment etc Thank you so much for your help!
