Karl sat down with Community Leaders Amy Babinchak and Joshua Liberman to talk about remote work.

Amy runs Harbor Computer Services, which always runs a remote operation. They invite all employees in for a weekly meeting, but the rest of the time, they all work remotely. Josh has personally worked remotely for years, but runs an IT consulting company that is build around in-office work.

We asked them to give their advice about hiring, culture, productivity, security, and more.

In addition to their individual experiences, Amy and Josh give some great tips on trying to hire and manage remote workers. And they gives us some speculation about changes to client offices going forward.

All in all, a good conversation.

Nigel built and sold a managed service business - and survived the last big recession. In this interview he talks with Karl Palachuk about the lessons he's learned.

Nigel went on to found the Tech Tribe membership community and now helps hundreds of IT consultants run great businesses. Recently, he released a new ebook: Survive & Thrive: The MSP Owners Guide to Surviving & Thriving in Uncertain Times. (Available at thetechtribe.com)

Nigel talks about the current environment, the "essential" role of IT in the current situation, and being a true business adviser.

This is a 100% business-focused podcast. We talk about getting your finances under control, and keeping them that way forever. Managing cash inside your company is critical - and it needs to become a permanent process.

We also touched on downsizing. No one wants to do it, but you may have to do it in order for your business to survive. And, of course, you need to do it the right way to improve the culture within your remaining team.

The Tech Tribe is Nigel's training and coaching community. The book (Survive & Thrive) is available for download at: https://thetechtribe.com/guide/.

Information on the Tribe generally is at https://thetechtribe.com/.
