Remote Work Round-Up
Plus: Designing the perfect space for remote work
Having the opportunity to work from your couch is definitely something to brag about- but I'm here to tell you, after 5 days of full-time couch sitting, your body will be screaming for a hard chair and some form of organization.
Whether you're lucky enough to have a private home office, or you're converting a small corner of your dwelling into an office by day, the new book HomeWork, (which will be published in early April) is going to change your life.
Written and curated by cofounder and editor- in-chief of Monitor magazine Anna Yudina, she understands that working remotely is a huge perk, but also comes with it's challenges- mainly when it comes to space.
"People have very different situations to which they have to adapt their workplace," Yudina says. "Sometimes you need to balance it with kids at home, sometimes you have a tiny space where you still have to find a way to organize for different times of the day and situations. It's finding the right scenario in the right space and time, through design."
Moving walls are no longer just for Hogwarts. New York-based architect Michael K. Chen's 360 degree movable walls make up some of the most impressive designs within Yudina's book, and they're perfect for renters.

Preparing for the Unexpected: How Maria Fava Found Her Confidence as a Bicultural, Bilingual Woman at T. Rowe Price
Born in Mexico City and raised in Guadalajara, Maria Fava never would have predicted that she'd have a career in financial services. And certainly not in Maryland.
Over two decades ago, when Maria moved to the U.S. to study psychology at the University of Texas at Arlington, she'd planned on moving back to Mexico to study law after graduation. Instead, she fell in love with an unassuming Italian-American her senior year. She married him and moved to Maryland, his home state.
