I have worked from home most of my career. Having a great home office setup is very important to me. We had the week of July 4th off, and I took this opportunity to revamp my home office setup. This included some cleaning, cleaning and painting.
This is the office I use to do office work, remote meetings, and record tutorials.
I posted some photos of my new setup and my followers insisted that I take a video tour. So I recorded one that you can see here.
Although I put links to the whole team in the video description, I’m also putting this post up for your convenience:

The bottom line
Although I was already working from home when the pandemic hit, I knew that for at least the next two years I would be doing more meetings online than traveling to meet in person. I wanted to create the best experience possible with the settings that were right for me. I fulfilled what I proposed.
Live long and prosperous!
