Solo: How to Work Alone (and Not Lose Your Mind)

List price: $16.99

Available: 100+

A practical, accessible, and charming guide for finding joy while navigating your professional life working remotely from home--without losing your mind.

Like it or not, working alone is now the new normal. The COVID-19 pandemic may have accelerated the process, but the trend is clear--making a living outside the confines of a public workplace is here to stay.

For anyone who needs guidance on how to navigate working from a home office--or a home sofa--here is a charming, expert, and genuinely helpful guide to managing a productive career without impromptu hallway conversations or on-call IT support, but with more joy--and, for most of us, better coffee. Written by a dedicated work-from-home expert, Solo culls wisdom from the latest research in psychology, economics, and social science and explores what we gain, or lose, in the shift to solo work. In chapters like "Loneliness and Solitude," "The Power of Planning," and "The Curse of Comparison (and Why Social Media Sucks)," it picks up where the bibles for freelancers stop, offering practical, inspiring, and uniquely reassuring advice culled from a range of influences, from Aesop's fables to medical journals, and explaining what helps us stay resilient, productive, and focused in a company of one.
