For those of us who were introduced to the FT WFH (full-time work from home) thing in March of last year, there have been a lot of best practices learned on the fly. As life continues on, WFH employment is a staple of modern life. According to one source, 85% of businesses say that productivity increased along with greater flexibility—and 90% of employees say that flexibility boosted their morale.

The game-changing benefits of allowing employees to work outside the office have been embraced by companies in position to do so, and the results are profound. While employees enjoy greater job opportunities, productivity, independence, and satisfaction—in part from the time saved not commuting—managers benefit by saving money and resources and by having access to talent outside their zip codes.

Working From Home For Dummies, gathers the expertise of multiple industry experts, featuring best of the best content from:

Virtual Teams For Dummies

Managing For Dummies, 3E

"Increase engagement, efficiency, and productivity"

Marketing Trends Report (MarketingProfs + Airtable)

Despite the increased investment in tooling and processes, marketers aren't operationally equipped to build customer experiences at scale. To pick up the slack, they're spending countless hours of manual work to make up the difference. When it comes to meeting demands for content and campaigns, combining creativity and speed is a luxury we simply do not have. If you're feeling stressed, you're not alone.

So the question is: Why is it happening? And more importantly, how can we fix it?

Airtable recently surveyed 300 marketers about the systems, tools, and workflows they're using—and the challenges that persist. It also looked at possible solutions to improve agility and productivity.

Check out this report to learn how:

Demands for production agility are increasing

Teams are bearing the brunt of broken processes

Poor flow of information is hobbling decision-making

Dear:Karen Russell

  I am Engr Uduak Walter Onnoghen, the son of the recently suspended Chief Justice of Nigeria. I write to make a plea to you as one of my father`s friends, who works with the Ministry of Finance under foreign Contractors payment Reconciliation Department , advised.

To be precise, my father`s case is still under investigation as such, there are some hidden funds which i want to keep in safer hands so that this Government will not get hold of it. This is a secret. Even my father`s friends do not know i am communicating with you over this.

Please, if you are interested in helping me out by receiving the Fund, reply me  for more details.

Dear Karen Russell,

Thanks for your candid response. As you have declared your interest in helping us, the details are as follows:

1. There is this $20.5 million that my father lodged in his late brother`s(my uncle) account in LONDON. I am the Next of Kin to that account. And I am making plans to transfer it into your own account and then get the account closed as the account owner is dead. I cannot transfer directly into my account now as the Government is monitoring my account and my siblings` account. As soon as this is done, I will come over to your country to have my share for an investment. You will have 30% while I have 70%.

2. You are to contact his account officer, Mr Edward James through his direct email Address: [email protected]  or Phone number: +447700010579.

Thanks and GOD bless you as you help me achieve my aim.

Dear Kevin Russell

, Thanks for your message, As I made known earlier, I'm a
representative of Exxon-Mobil in London. I want to bring to your
notice that trust and confidence will be our watch out word in this
transaction and every proof of this funds is available and will send
to you as soon as possible. I have taken my time to work out the
modalities of this transaction to ensure equity, justice, transparency
and accountability but cannot strike this deal alone without our
collective participation. The accumulated US$12.5 (Twelve Million Five
Hundred Thousand United States dollars) was generated from several
already paid contracts which is presently causing a difference in our
accounts. However, you are required to step-in as a contractor to the
company and the fund will be re profiled in your name and paid to you
accordingly.

I give you my 100% assurance that this project is risk free and
our security is as well 100% protected. I am a representative officer
with Exxon Mobil on contract related matters It is impossible for me
to transfer, lodge or secure these funds in my personal account
considering my status and the situation surrounding the funds.
In this consideration, I contacted you to seek for your kind
understanding and sincere co-operation to stand in as the Contractor
under my portfolio of Contractors and claim this fund without any
hitch. This is the only way this project can be realized. I=E2=80=99m
confident that we can build a business relationship towards securing
the above stated funds in question legally.

We can only achieve success following the appropriate legal
procedures and also I expect a perfect understanding from you based on
the situation surrounding this and I demand absolute confidentiality
from you regarding the project. Can I trust you? Can you be able to
handle this magnitude of funds until my arrival in your country? Can I
rely on your integrity? At the completion of this transaction, the
sharing rates shall be 50% for me, 50% for you.

The details regarding how this operation would be executed is not
ambiguous or complex. It is a simple process and I would provide the
steps but all I need is your 100% commitment towards securing this
funds. One important thing, I did not establish contacts with you
through any of my official contact points like my official email
considering the confidentiality needed to be able to execute the deal.
So far you are the only person who knows about these funds and deal.

Showing my good faith and sincerity towards building this
relationship, it is important that i share some personal details about
myself with you and attaching my company ID.

Dear Karen Russell

Thanks for your mail, I have explained to you in greater details
before, But it seems you don't understand it, In a nut shell, These
funds is amassed from contract over invoice, I am in charge of
contract awards with Exxon Mobil, I used my position in the company to
over invoice a contract which has already been done and completed and
the company have fully been paid, So i am seeking your assistance to
stand as a sub contracted that executed the contract with the major
contractor but yet to be paid.

So these said contract over invoice worth US$12.5M will be transferred
into your company account, then i will come over for sharing and
investment.

If you are interested, You can forward all the requested details in my
previous mail.

Andrew
