A Day in the (Virtual) Life: Founder WFH in NYC

Posted by

I had the opportunity last week to catch up with Christopher Mitchell, co-founder and CEO of Geopipe, from his apartment in New York City. During the rapidly changing realities of business in the era of COVID-19, I thought it would be illuminating to chat with someone who does a significant amount of his work remotely.

Christi Kroll: So, how do you start your day?

Christopher Mitchell: First things first, I start by making my coffee. I glance over emails and Slack to see if there’s anything urgent, and briefly open up news and Facebook.

CK: How has your routine changed as you’ve been practicing social distancing?

CM: I’ve been spending more time cooking, actually. My go to breakfast is a bagel with cream cheese, but I’ve been taking time to make omelets and even some pumpkin bread!

CK: That sounds delicious. I know I’ve been struggling with staying focused and being productive—how do you handle that at home?
