The End of Stay at Home?

Today marks the beginning of reopening for much of Colorado, and some of you may be curious about our plans. For now, we will continue to work from home.

We will monitor the stay-at-home orders, and when it seems safe to resume in-person meetings, we will do so. We see no reason to put either ourselves or you in danger, though, by meeting face-to-face now. We are happy to talk with you either via web meeting or phone.

Have you taken time to reflect on the stay-at-home experience? Did anything positive come from this that you would like to continue it is over? What about the negatives? Is there anything you want to be sure to eliminate when this is done?

For me, one positive has been how easily many of you were able to transition to web meetings. One of my long-term goals is to work remotely 1-2 days per week, and, if clients are comfortable with web meetings, this may be possible sooner than I imagined. Another positive is that I’m saving a lot of money now that I cannot dine out or go shopping. Finally, I love the impact on our environment and hope to continue to do my part to drive and consume less.

One of the negatives that I had to really work on was sticking to a schedule. For the first couple of weeks, my schedule was in disarray. Now, I am very intentional about my sleep schedule, my work schedule, and finding time to exercise and spend time with my boys.

As for Zoom, there has been quite a bit of publicity surrounding its security. We have used Zoom for quite some time and have found it to be more stable than the alternative web meeting platforms. We have always used meeting id and passwords and generally don’t share personal information during our calls. We update the software as new releases and security enhancements are issued.

If you have any questions or would like to talk, please feel free to reach out. You can schedule a time to talk using this link.
