Companies now have everyone working remotely. If you don’t have it yet, you’re about to. Remote work is becoming the new normal and most of us are not set up for it! Today’s episode is all about ways you can optimize your working-from-home situation.

Daniel Ramsey is the Founder and CEO of MyOutDesk, a virtual assistant provider for businesses looking to take their needs offshore. Daniel has over 13 years of experience helping clients manage remote employees and has a quick checklist of all the tools, systems, and processes clients need to succeed.

Daniel started his business in 2008, during the economic downturn, and had to think quickly on how to serve his clients. He helps his clients in four key areas, sales, administrative support, operations support, and marketing assistance.

In Daniel’s checklist, the first step is to understand who your audience is and what are the different things that matter to them. This could be your employees, clients, and vendors. Once you understand who you need to be talking to, the next is to develop a remote checklist.

Find your communication hub that everyone will use. Start your day with to-do tasks and end your day with a report on how those tasks went. Over-communication is critical at this time. Use video conference calls when chatting about important topics because that face-to-face interaction is critical.
