While teams must meet to ensure everyone is working toward a common goal, how can unnecessary videoconferences be eliminated?

As her companies expanded and teams grew, she realized that daily Slack chats were inadequate for communicating goals and grievances. As a result, Suzie implemented the daily nine-at-nine.

To create a positive atmosphere, Suzie curates specific songs to set the tone. In addition, all team leads share a victory from the previous work day and allow team members to voice their complaints. In this episode of Remotely Cultured, Jeanna Barrett welcomes Suzie Cyrenne, Co-founder and COO of Buster Fetcher and Zumalka, to discuss remote work culture and processes.

In this episode… Migrating to another country to start a new life can be an exhilarating experience. However, it can also be a daunting undertaking due to the many complex requirements. What should Americans be aware of before uprooting to a foreign destination? Tax expert Roland Sabates explains that American citizens who hold a US passport should understand that even if they move overseas, they’re still obligated to file taxes annually. In addition, filing an information report is crucial if you possess an out-of-country bank account with a balance over $10,000. This protects individuals from penalty exposure or assumptions of nefarious activities. However, there are some benefits, as Roland defines the foreign-earned income exclusion, which could save you from paying US taxes on amounts of $120,000 or more.
