Just a few months ago, Erin Bury hated the idea of working remotely.
The serial entrepreneur, CEO, and self-described extrovert understood the potential cost and time savings, which is why she offered flexible work options to her staff. But she’s long felt it just wasn’t for her.
“I felt like I was missing out on stuff at the office,” says Bury, who most recently co-founded the online estate-planning platform, Willful, with her husband. “I never felt more productive at home.”
Soon after the coronavirus forced her company to go all remote, however, she started to notice benefits, like getting to wake up later, not having to commute, and being able to better manage her time. She’s also been thrilled at her team’s ability to adapt amid what has turned out to be the busiest few months ever for her business.
