Three weeks ago, the GoToMyPC team and I launched a workshifting photo contest, and the creative entries are not to be missed. We asked people to share photos of the interesting places they work from, and it’s been an entertaining glimpse into so many worlds. Surprisingly, as different as all the entries are, I find myself relating to each and every one of them.
WEEK 1 WINNER: ANDREA, THE SUPER WORKSHIFTING MOMMY
Our first winner, Andrea, shared a photo on Instagram of her temporary office while her actual home office is under construction. As a new mom myself (my son, Sawyer, will be 1 later this month), I am also grateful for technology that helps to make balancing work and life easier.
“During my office update, I’ll be working at this card table that is covered with chalky handprints from my ‘little helper’ #Workshifting thank goodness for @GoToMyPC #ProjectOffice” – Andrea S.
WEEK 2 WINNER: CHRIS, THE WILDERNESS WORKER
Our second winner, Chris, shared a less typical scenario for his photo entry. Chris channeled his inner explorer by remotely working in the woods of Maine! Now, I’ve had my fair share of workshifting adventures (I once worked from a car while traveling cross-country), but this is pretty incredible!
“Hey @GoToMyPC this is just one of my #Workshifting locations. Western Maine w/ battery pack, citrix & verizon mifi FTW”
WEEK 3 WINNER: EVAN, THE LITERAL ON-THE-GO WORKER
This week’s winning photo from Evan shows an example of workshifting on the go, literally. Not only does this photo represent Evan’s lifestyle, but it also paints a picture of the speed of business these days. With new apps and new job responsibilities around every corner, we’re always moving, and Evan was able to capture that feeling spot on.
