The Homebody (mostly a)
You are fueled by familiarity and comfort of a home office. You are most productive in loungewear and working out of an informal setting such as your plush couch or cozy recliner.
The Content Creator (mostly b)
You love to work in an environment that levels up your digital strategy. You see opportunity beyond deskwork in a work setting. The world is your backdrop, your surroundings are your props, and your desire to stay connected enhances your productivity.
The Networker (mostly c)
You are the connector- you understand the value of a strong ROR- return on relationships. You love to work in an environment that allows you to collaborate and leverage your personality to drive not only your business but others as well. You can direct your connections to valuable resources because you know everyone, and everyone knows you.
The Nomad (mostly d)
You love a work setting that allows for a change of scenery throughout the day. Changing your desk, room or even the direction that you are facing can reenergize your focus and inspire new thoughts.
The Brainstormer (mostly e)
A visual worker- you love a setting that allows you to easily capture your ideas and insights. Whether it be an office with whiteboards or a conference room with high tech note taking capabilities, you wish to be in an environment where no thought can be left behind and you are working within the eye of the “brain”storm.
