Why I Decided to Operate my Startup as a Fully Remote Company

And Why You Should Too

No office space required

As long as you have internet, you can be in business. If you are working from home, your commute is down to three feet. If you work outside in nature (like me), your commute is basically non-existent.

No overhead costs

No need for big fancy offices or desks and chairs and all that stuff that most people think they need when launching their company. Just buy some cheap desks if needed and get out in nature! You don’t want to waste money on office space when it’s not necessary at this point.

No distractions

When everyone works remotely they are more productive because they cannot get distracted by what others are doing around them or going out after work with others which results in less time wasted on things unrelated to work or getting distracted by the office politics etc..

Teamwork

Because team members aren’t distracting from each other, they can be more productive. The work that is done by each person will directly benefit the other members of the team.

Focus

When everyone is remote, it’s easier to focus on your own work and it’s easier for your boss to focus on their work as well.

Motivation

Because everyone works remotely, there are fewer reasons why someone might not want to be working hard.

Communication

With remote teams it’s easy to communicate with others around the world without having any time zone issues at all!
