Welcome to Season 2 of the Remote Show! We’re kicking off 2020 at The Remote Show with Scott Mathson, who runs Web Strategy, Growth, SEO at Netlify and also is the bootstrapped founder of Plink. We were super excited to chat with Scott, as he is an ever present name in the remote work and bootstrapped founder communities.
We get into all kind of interesting topics from his background in woodworking, his experiences at Auth0 to taking on his new role at Netlify and bootstrapping his new startup Plink (Scott graciously created a free subscription Plink custom link for listeners of The Remote Show (and desktop Show Page, Episodes Page). Scott is another great example of someone who is insightful, honest and open about his work experience about burnout, career progression and the pros and cons of working remotely.
Scott is a mentor at Lambda School and one of his initial mentors was Pete Sveen. For those of you interested in woodworking and DIY projects, you should check out Pete : -)
Burn out resources mentioned: journaling, therapy, scheduling in self care time, mindfulness & meditation - Headspace, MacOS Aware App , Pomodoro techniques, Coworking, etc.
Scott’s book he’d force everyone to read: Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer.
