Yesterday I subscribed to the Read & Trust newsletter. These are people I already read or have thought about checking out anyway, so why not, right?
As a thank-you for signing up, they gave me some links covering their recent topic, 'Working From Home.' Four pieces written by four people, sharing their experiences and lessons learned while working from home.
