A Change in Perspective

The Treehouse Office

This week I’ve been blessed to work outside my office. Literally, outside in our lovely forested backyard on the screened in balcony.

Everyday I’m treated to a cacophony of birds and other sounds of nature. Enjoying breezes and warmth, the occasional dog barking and squirrels yelling at each other. Its delightful!

This morning I saw a brilliant cardinal on my porch rail, so beautiful! Yesterday, two deer walked calmly through the backyard that is carved out of the forest, then back into the trees, pausing to nibble at little green dainties along the way.

This is the first time in the lifetime of my business that I’ve had the space and the surroundings to create an outdoor office. Nearly twenty-one years in business and only since 2011 have I had this perfect space with which to work and be productive while taking in nature’s bounty and refreshing my soul.  Sure, its only good in the spring and summer before it gets too hot in the day, and rainstorms drive me indoors. But I wouldn’t trade it for the world.

Thanks to technology such as Splashtop for ‘remoting in’ and VoIP phone systems like my RingCentral, I’m able to do all this and still get everything done I need to.

Makes me realize how much I missed before moving to our amazing home in Pennsylvania.  🙂

I hope you’re enjoying your office wherever that may be.

 

Customer Comments

"I want to take this opportunity to extend not only my sincere thanks but also a commendation for your beautifully detailed custom design work that you proposed for the South Wynde Planning Associates logo idea. Your warm mannerism put me completely at ease, and I can't remember when a business transaction seemed more like a friendly conversation of bouncing ideas back and forth as when I worked with you and your firm.  Imagine my surprise and delight when you managed to define and expand upon such a loosely defined idea and turn it into a living, breathing entity and it was more elegant than I ever imagined it could be! After talking more at length with you, I did a very thorough job of reviewing your website, and I must say how very impressed I was with all of your pages - design AND text! You should be very proud for having such a wide array of services that are being presented so beautifully."
