Hello! welcome to the 2020 update #6 of Mayo615’s French Odyssey and how to transform Big Ideas into Big Realities. I work from home. WFH is the new acronym. I am going to share what I have learned as best practices for me. You may use my experience as a guide and tweak it for your own situation. First, you need a location away from where you sleep. It needs to be a quiet place. If you are using video it needs to be without backlighting from room lighting or windows. I also use 2 LED desk lamps to light my face. This video is with my LED lighting. Get up and get dressed for “work.” It’s a state of mind. I set goals to accomplish each day. If you can, a home office is ideal. I use a wired Internet connection. The other options are a library or bodega with good Wi-Fi. Keep in mind the need for quiet.  You may need a higher performance laptop or desktop for a reliable video connection. Close all unneeded apps while on video. If the Wi-Fi fails know how to “tether” your laptop to your smartphone’s data but beware as mobile data can be expensive. Try to have the best broadband you can afford. Ear buds with a mike have too much noise and would be my last choice. Wired headphones with a mike are preferred. Do not use Bluetooth. If at home, a quality condenser boom mike with headphones or speakers is best. “Work From Home” is going to be even bigger after coronavirus, so take it seriously now. | There is an Entrepreneur Resources Playlist on this channel, and remember the 437 posts on my blog We look forward to your comments and questions.
