The three essential viewpoints in the book:

POPULAR WORKPLACE. The virtual office is on the increase and becoming a popular workplace alternative, yet it isn’t just about the technology you use or the location of your office that will determine your success in a virtual environment; it’s the mindset you have.

AWARENESS. It’s important to be aware of the areas within the virtual environment that will present a challenge before it does. Being aware will provide you with the opportunity to find solid solutions before your challenges become unmanageable and out of control.

BE REALISTIC. We often get caught up in the “honeymoon” phase of working virtually. Although there are some fantastic benefits to working in a virtual environment, one needs to be realistic about the challenges as well. It’s not all “flowers and sunshine” and if you approach the virtual environment with this mindset your dream will surely turn into a nightmare when reality sets in.
