      Hello. Do you have a PDF version of this guide? I would love to be able to read it while offline. It’s fantastic!

        • J Hunter

          Wow – this is great Dave. You really did a fantastic job. I’ve been managing a remote team for years and there’s a ton of things I wish I knew then, and even some that really help me moving forward. The next step is training my remote staff to learn this so I don’t have to do all the HR! Thanks for all your efforts here.
