We have all expressed this sentiment. It's all too common throughout history and across cultures, but it bears repeating. It's important to stay positive.

Breaths. In. Out.

There will be time for regrowth after the storm.
Sometimes, you just want to try something to see if it helps people. So, we picked up the domain wfh.cards because we wanted to design something fun to inspire people as they transition to remote work.
We've been doing the remote thing for over 10 years now. Hopefully, you can benefit from some of the tips and advice we've collected over the past decade. Check it out at wfh.cards →
