Why Working Remotely is Harder than You Think

Last year we tested, and then made official, Office Free Friday. It's been a very cool thing for us as a company because it's provided us some much-needed focus time each week where our customers expect us to be a little less available.

If you aren't interested in clicking through to that announcement link, I'll give you the simple gist here. On Fridays, we officially close our office and our phones go directly to voicemail. It's still a working day, but because the office is closed, our employees have an option to work wherever they want.

In my more than 20 years of employment, I have learned some key things about my own level of productivity. I've learned that in the morning I'm almost never very productive. I get a second (or third or fourth) wind as the day wears on. Sometimes I need a change of scenery. Sometimes I need to close the door and sometimes I need to invite others in to bounce ideas.

More often than not, I need a place that allows me to focus on what I need to focus on without the distractions of phone, email, people, etc. In fact, as I write this blog post, I'm not at the office. I'm away at an undisclosed location to focus.

BOISE, ID., (June, 2015) - Today, Tribute Media, a Boise based, nationally focused web marketing and design firm, announces its achievement of HubSpot's Gold tier as a certified agency partner.

Tribute Media became a HubSpot partner back in February of 2015, and has worked since then not only to become acquainted with HubSpot's tools, but to apply HubSpot's methodology and become experts.

Corey Smith, Tribute Media's Founder says, "we aren't partnering with HubSpot just to use their tools; we are applying their methodology to further our inbound practices. It has changed the way we do everything."

This achievement has been a culmination of the intense education of Tribute Media's entire staff, the result of which is every employee gaining at least one HubSpot certification, the majority holding two or more. Their Channel Account Manager, Sean Dazet, said of them, "they took HubSpot's methodology seriously. They moved exceptionally fast towards the gold tier and toward certifying so many employees."
