✔️ [TV appearance!] Nozbe’s TGIF - Thank Goodness It’s Friday on Polish national television - how to work smarter?

As I’ve written here, and on the NoOffice blog and on Nozbe blog, today is Friday and in our company we treat this day differently - we don’t do the usual work - we focus on getting the weekly review done and later each member of our team can design this day the way they want: do something for personal development, catch up on reading, conference watching, learning new skills... or simply run errands - it’s all up to them... and last month our system got the attention of the Polish national breakfast television and I had a privilege of being there:

How do you do Fridays?

Please read how we do them at Nozbe and if you have any questions, let me know!

And if you want to know the back story how I got to TV, here it is:

🎬 Which mobile apps we use to run our Nozbe company? - video of my presentation at Mobiconf 2018

Last month I was kindly invited to one of the biggest mobile conferences in Europe - Mobiconf 2018 and I had a chance to do a follow up to my Infoshare 2018 presentation on the way we work. Today it's Saturday so if you want to get inspired how to work better next week, make sure to check it out:

My presentation at Mobiconf was about the apps we use to do our #NoOffice work and the way we communicate- specifically our pyramid of communication

Here's the link to all the resources mentioned in this presentation.

Enjoy, and if you'd like to also get my book on “NoOffice apps” make sure to sign up to my newsletter below this post.

It was also nice that some people who were at my presentation rally liked it. So much so that I won an award for the best presentation on the “everything mobile” track, neat! If you liked it, too, make sure to let me know!

🎬 Why “No Office”? Why I’m running an all-remote company? - my presentation at Infoshare 2018

In this presentation that I did in front of an audience of 500+ people at InfoShare 2018 I’m talking about the “why” of #NoOffice - why we’re running a company without an office. What are the advantages and disadvantages and why I believe it’s the future of work.

Why an all-remote team can be successful and work better!?

Infoshare

Apart from the big “why” I also talk about the practical aspects of running an all-remote company and why it might not make sense to rent an office space for your company/startup and why by working all-remote you can have a better team:

  • how you can make your team feel more connected... even though they don’t share the same physical space
  • how to run meetings, how to run projects, how to get stuff done together in a “no office” team
  • when meeting in person matters and when it really doesn’t - how to build a company based on trust and not just control
  • why when you’re together you’re wasting time and having only an illusion of control - how to structure communication in your team
  • why a physical office can be an additional tool for your team/company but is not a requirement - why you can hire from anywhere and how it benefits you
  • why you can save money on rent and save time and stress on daily commute

Plus lots of practical tips of running an all remote team from me - a person, who’s been doing this for the last 11 years + more tips from other companies who’re doing it as well (Automattic, Buffer, MySQL, etc.). Enjoy!

P.S. And if you want to find out how I worked on this presentation, you’ll get the whole back-stage listening or watching the episode 145 of The Podcast

✔ No Office, Productivity and Running a successful online business - where I was invited to talk about these things?

As Nozbe and this blog became more popular, I got invited to many events, speaking engagements and podcast interviews. Some in English, some in my mother tongue (Polish). Here are a few I'm really proud of and where hopefully you can get value from by listening to me talking about No Office, productivity and business:
