Episode 38 - Extreme Remote Working

One 2017 business story you might have caught was IBM's decision to eliminate all remote work.  They announced it during the spring, but basically if you want to work at IBM, you have to work in the office.  No more working from home.

No financial advisory firm has reached IBM's size and complexity just yet, but we grapple with the pros and cons of remote work just like they do.

In this episode, we chat with Bethany Griffith of the Abacus Planning Group, who continues to work for her South Carolina firm while living in Germany.


Bethany mentions two helpful systems that keep her connected to her firm, which we've linked to below:

  • Allworx phone systems
  • Yammer, an internal chat/social media solution
