This week I’m in sunny and HOT Phoenix, working with long-term client Van Halen Store. Oh, yes, I’m surrounded by enough Van Halen merchandise and memorabilia to last me for years.
Speaking of years: Jeff, the owner, and I have been working together via remote for nearly 15. The few opportunities we’ve had to work face to face are nothing short of uber-productive.
It’s only my second day here, but we’ve already crossed about a dozen items off the task list. Social media updates, converting company email over to Google Apps, and more. I’m also learning a great deal. Witnessing how a business operates behind closed doors helps me better understand their goals and what methods should be used to reach them.
I’ll be updating more during the week. For now, I’ll tell all my East coast friends and colleagues that I’m staying indoors as much as possible, and I’m drinking lots of water. Can you blame me?
