I never thought that the six years I spent house bound and the one year I spent bed bound were training me for home-working during a global pandemic, but here we are.

I’ve lived a good life from home for many years. I built two international multi-award winning businesses from home.

(However, I’m not recommending you try to do that right now. These are stressful, difficult times.)

I’m sharing resources and experience here to support you in transitioning to a life lived within four walls.

I believe in us and our possibilities, I believe we can make it through this. Onwards, together.
