Business consultant, networking expert and future CRCE speaker Nyna Caputi recently shared her remote working experience while she was in India.
I share my current work-from-home space with three birds.
The pandemic and lockdown pushed me into becoming a content creator. My home office slowly evolved over the last year to accommodate this. Have you heard of the Marie Kondo Method? Marie Kondo is a Japanese organizing consultant and creator who has a new series on Netflix which started in August. Her suggestions helped guide me to create a space that worked for me and allowed me to manage working from home.
However, just when I thought I had my space down, I had to make an emergency trip to India as my mother was ill. Her house is definitely not set up for remote work. The only available desk has a birdcage with three sweet, but noisy, birds. Noise-canceling headphones take care of that, but it's still not ideal.
It also made me realize when you are doing what you love doing — adding value, and showing up consistently — the space doesn't really matter. Here in India, I don't have a green screen, lights, a desk, but that hasn't stopped me from creating content.
