First impressions become a filter many use for all future interactions with someone. In some instances it becomes difficult to change someone’s first impression of us.

Managed Print Services Reduces Costs & Problems for Remote Offices

Remote transition from office to home (or remote office) has evolved rapidly over the last year. According to Buffer research , almost 98% of people surveyed shared that they would prefer to work remotely, at least part of the time, over the remainder of their career.
