The best compact workstations for remote workers
When you work from a coffee shop, it’s not always easy to get comfortable. These compact workstations offer a lightweight, ergonomic solution.
- How many people work remotely? According to a Gallup report, about 37% of Americans do some telecommuting.

- What are the best remote jobs? There are many great remote jobs in design, development, writing, social media, and customer support (We are hiring!).
As employers wake up to the benefits of remote work, more and more of us are taking the opportunity to escape the office. Being able to avoid the daily commute is a great thing, as is the opportunity to focus on productivity.
