4: Challenges with remote work, with special guest Brendan O'Leary

Yes, we’re back! I am now writing to you as a dad of a small baby girl, that was born early and gave me and Carla some stressful nights and days. But all is well now and we’re getting rolling again! This episode and next were recorded several months ago, from episode 6 on, we’re back in the present time. Expect episode 5 in less than this six-month hiatus!

But first, this episode:

Brendan O’Leary is Manager, Professional Services at GitLab and has a house full of kids. He’s also an incredibly enthusiastic, kind and smart guy. It was a pleasure to speak with him about his job, life and some of the challenges of remote work he has faced. Hope you enjoy our conversation.

1: Why remote work?

To kick off the Remote Work Podcast, Carla joins me to discuss what remote work is, and especially answer why remote working is something to discuss at all. 

It's terrifying to publish a first of something. There are a million things I want to have done differently or better, but a first step has to be made and I'm happy this is it.
