Liam’s tips for working remotely:

  • To help your remote colleagues know how to work with you, create a “blueprint of yourself” about how you work and how you think.
  • Create internet speed requirements for your team (if the speed is less than X [you decide], you are “on vacation”).
  • Using video helps people empathise better with each other.
  • Meet in person on a regular basis.
  • Remoteok.io and weworkremotely.com are great sites for hiring permanent employees
  • Hire for culture fit before skills.
