The most complete system to win the Future of Work.

A book and video course teaching you how to operate and scale high-performing remote companies.

Performing Remote is a book and video course that teaches you a radical path to scale remote companies.

I worked in various organizations and industries, mainly software startups and scale-ups, for 13+ years, including over 8 years managing teams. I saw overwhelming processes, complexity, indecisions, time wasted, broken cultures, stressed people, inflexibility, and rooted inefficiency. It's not only what I saw but also what I built, as I founded businesses and failed to scale them.

Then I understood we were merely patching traditional systems to adapt to the Future of Work, which the pandemic only exacerbated. It was time to reflect on all these experiences and experiments and work from scratch on a new approach to solving growing issues for remote organizations.

In Performing Remote, you'll learn the system to solve the primary issues remote companies live with from their origin to growth:

  • Assist leaders in scaling remote companies, solving their 32 most encountered challenges, including scaling culture, building connections, protecting time, collaborating efficiently, managing projects, persisting knowledge, retaining workers, and solving legal.
  • Built around 8 chapters containing 8 solved issues each for a total of 320 pages of highly-actionable content. Expect a dense, straightforward, opinionated system with no room for interpretation.
  • Evolve to stay up-to-date with the latest challenges the industry discovers of being remote at scale. The system focuses on value generation, simplicity, scalability, and worker experience.
  • Designed to scale, from book and course to SaaS. You get a product you can trust, remain consistent, and built as a full-stack solution that will last. Coaching services are planned too. I made it iteratively and publicly.
  • Partner with third-party services to create a fully featured ecosystem that works seamlessly with low implementation effort and exclusive benefits.

By the end of the book, you'll have all the confidence you need to start building or transforming your organization to strive in the Future of Work.
