In preparation for the start of next week’s Flex Course on Hacks for Hybrid Working, I thought I would build on a few previous blog posts by compiling my favorite tips and tricks for working from home.

I’m delighted to be joining Dr. Maren Deepwell in just a few short weeks to host Reclaim Hosting’s newest flex course, Hacks for Hybrid Working.
