Café Etiquette for Remote Workers

Café etiquette is key to keeping your neighbourhood coffee shop open to hosting tables of remote workers on laptops. When you work remotely, whether that’s from home or when travelling, cafés become a second home. The ambient noise helps you concentrate, the coffee keeps you typing a million miles a minute, and when you’re used to working on your own it’s just nice to be around a room full of happily caffeinated people. Oh, and coffee smells good. So good. Sipping great coffee and cleaning out the ol’ email inbox….for the first time in weeks! #FridayFeeling #coffee #victoriabc #yyj #remotework...

Find a remote work schedule that works, with Angela Hathaway

I miss the warm, salty Mediterranean and good espresso right now. I miss the feeling of waking up in a new city, excited about finding a new café with those delectable little cinnamon biscotti, while listening to people around speak a language I’m only just starting to understand. Spain. If you haven’t been yet, why? I met Angela Hathaway my first week in Spain. We stayed at Sun and Co. coworking/coliving space in Javea, a postcard-beautiful beach town on the south coast of Spain. It was like staying in hostel for grown-ups. During the day, busy remote workers and entrepreneurs...
