Zoom Like A Pro

So…who saw this coming? No one. And we bet you’re lying if you said you did.

Zoom meetings. Zoom parties. Zoom conferences. Zoom assemblies.

Well guess what? Online connections have quickly become a part of our lives. Kick and scream all you want, but you can’t change the times we’re living in. The new normal’ will be here for a while. A recent survey suggested that two thirds of all companies may work from home forever.

Our solution? Embrace the ‘new normal’ (we mean…what are our options😊).

It’s not like we haven’t been on this journey before. Look at music for example. What helped us sing like rock stars on road trips?  First, there were 8-tracks, then came cassette tapes, and later, CDs. Now we have…streaming. Those are some huge changes when you think about it.

We know. This isn’t just updating your sound equipment. It’s a lifestyle change that features things called ‘ZOOM’, WhatsApp, and GoToMeeting. These little on-line adventures broadsided us like a tsunami. As we unexpectedly dove into the “zoom age”, we saw countless nostrils, tonsils, and all sorts of undiscernible body parts. There were “on-screen” moments that we can neither take back… or ever erase from our minds (ALWAYS check your video and think of the camera’s view folks).

On the positive side, we’ve embraced a new sense of fashion freedom at work. Like…ties don’t look so bad with flipflops, and a silk blouse can really dress up a pair of sweats. Choosing the ‘off video feature’ allows for uncounted bathroom visits, undetected yawns, and last-minute answer searches so your contributions are even MORE meaningful.

Glass half-filled…this part rocks.

So, to make you a ‘zoom-age-pro’, we’ve included some hacks to make your meetings smoother. Hand’s free, confusion free, klutz free, and happy.
