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

"When Kathy first told me that she designed crossword and word search puzzles, the wheels starting turning in my head as to how I could use them in my marketing strategies. I sent her a list of over 30 words and their clues and within a couple of hours, Kathy sent back a crossword puzzle that is wonderful, and in a format that I can use for my business. Her speed and accuracy in developing this puzzle was very impressive. And she even took a portion of the words and made a smaller version for me to use in other areas. I highly recommend to anyone to have her design one for won't regret it. I think I'll get her to do one for my family tree and a word search for my daughter's birthday! Great job never cease to amaze me!  Thank you Kathy. Also: We needed an outstanding graphic to add to our webpage and with just a couple of ideas to you, you came up with an exceptional result which was exactly what we were looking for. You definitely know your stuff and we will be contacting you again when we need your expertise."
