Great article. I agree 100%.
Ah, and one more team. Trust your team. Without them earning it first. You want to be trusted from the very start, right?
The funny thing regarding no. 6 - I feel that a lot of people see us - remoties unkempt, disheveled and wearing pajamas. Oh, so not true ;)
And if it's true, you'll go insane soon so please, put your pants on ;)
I worked remotely for 3 years and it took me some time to shape right habits. It's important to keep yourself in check not to become a total hermit. And building relationship with a remote team is much more challenging. But it's great when you get it right.
Also, work when you're most productive since you probably can (though I once interviewed for the remote job when they required me to still work more or less 9-5) ;) And travel if you want. And can. (I did. And I recommend.)
